The Deleted answers are automatically visible to users who have Access To Moderator Tools Privilege.

But who can see Deleted questions of other users and how?

These posts seem related but I couldn't get any clear answer:

How does deleting work? What can cause a post to be deleted, and what does that actually mean? What are the criteria for deletion?

Enable searching with deleted:1 for 10k users

Update:

deleted:1 or deleted:yes doesn't help in searching Deleted Questions of others. Using them one can see only his/her own Deleted posts:

Note: only content you own is returned when searching for deleted content

deleted:all doesn't seem working properly, it returns Deleted as well other posts (not of other users but own posts).

    The privilege you mentioned is applicable to both question and answer post. Users having privileges "access to moderate tools" can search deleted:1 or deleted:yes. Visit Advance searching help page

Users with access to moderator tools can view deleted questions, if they have a link to a deleted question. They can also see the deleted answers on a post, if there are any. They can also use deleted:1, deleted:all, etc to search amongst their own deleted posts.

♦ moderators can see the deleted posts of a user alongside their other posts from the user profile (activity tab) directly.

  • Well so do you mean other than ♦ moderators no body can see a Deleted question if they don't have it's link? If we search words of the deleted question it doesn't appear in search results..right?
