Did the rules change for questions?

I answer questions and then get an Activity Notification that someone commented or voted, but when I click on the Notification, it tells me Sorry, that question has been removed. This has happened with multiple questions and I'm a little lost on why.

The Community Guidelines were updated a little while ago, and you can find them in their current form here:

The change is a response to user feedback Ask received through a survey that was e-mailed earlier this year. :)

Haha yup, had a wee bit of a break, maybe a year or so. Decided to come back and my name was unavailable, I was a very sad panda :( But I've got my blemnants all rasted out quite nicely now, and I'm ready to rock and roll, lol :)

Well I hope you enjoy your stay! Welcome back. :)

Thanks, I'm sure I will :) I've mellowed a bit since last time too, so I shouldn't get quite so many deletions this time around, lol
Report as
Did you close your account when you left? I thought your account was good, even if you don't come back for a year. I'm on and off for months at a time lol
Report as
And hiya Lynn, sorry about that ;D
Report as
No problem ;)

Yeah, I'm not actually too sure how I left exactly, but I'm thinking I deleted my account. It was over a year ago I think, so I'm not surprised it's gone for good. It is a bit strange though that while my user name was still taken, my email address wasn't, but whatever :D
Report as
Hmmm...very curious. Glad you didn't go with something completely different...I wouldn't have recognized you lol

I agonized over that for a few minutes actually, BR had always been my one and only tag online, and it was difficult to think anything else up. And that's so cool that anyone even remembers me, I wouldn't have expected that at all :)
