I was wondering why My post was deleted in the question regarding the nest destruction I think it was an alternative / question following the same line of the idea.

Does depressurising The Nest kill the eggs?

Here`s a screenshot enter image description here

I tried contacting the users who deleted it but even with the provided email on one of them My emails kept bouncing back. Any help please ?

    You posted a question as an answer. That is not how SE works. The question should have been posted as a question (as explicitly stated in the comments). Nov 11, 2021 at 14:40

With all due respect, did you read the comments that were posted?

However, please note that we're not a regular discussion forum, but rather a focused Q&A site. If you have a new question, please use the Ask Question button rather than posting an answer to an existing question.

Stack Exchange runs on a model of no chit-chat. Your post would be perfectly fine as a new question, but should not be posted as an "answer" to a different question as it isn't an answer to the question.


Stack Exchange is a question and answer site, not a system of post threads like most forums and social media. You posted a new question as an answer to the question - it wasn't an answer so it was deleted.

If you want to ask a new question, you hit the ask question button, if you want to reference another question that inspired your new question, you can add a link to that original question in your new question, like I did in my question here.

  • I understand the posting now, but like I said, My question was in the same line of Idea and I was submitting a new idea through the question.

    @LordRamiro If your intention is to have the original question expanded, then comment on the original question to suggest that the original poster make the edit. But really, in most cases, the new question should be posted as a new question. Nov 11, 2021 at 20:02

    @L.ScottJohnson The OP won't have been able to comment on the question due to not having 50 rep - but that's no reason for posting answer-comments. Nov 11, 2021 at 21:28

    Ah, right. The solution then is to gain rep, which often leads to finding out more about how the site works, to boot. Nov 12, 2021 at 1:28

    @L.ScottJohnson which brings us back to his best choice being asking a related question (which I'd say is still the better choice over asking for the original question to be changed) earning him the rep he needs because it is a decent question to ask.
