The question is now Undeleted
I am very grateful to tchrist, who undeleted the post.
P.S. Several answers, consisting of one liners, have been deleted because they fail to reflect the site's standards that is expected today.
I happened to remember this question and the many answers it received, and I wanted to find it again today. I needed a word or expression that fitted this description. Impossible. The question has been deleted.
Luckily I had posted an answer, so with a "search operator" that I discovered on SE Meta, I managed to track it down.
For users who do not have 10K the post is not be visible, so let me describe it briefly. The question attracted 68 upvotes and 1 downvote, and 32 answers were posted. The highest upvoted answer (+81 and -9) suggested hoopy and frood. The second and third answers earned 35 and 20 upvotes respectively. Out of 32 answers, only three earned 0 upvotes.
This is the question:
Is there a word for someone who really has their act together?
Someone who has their time well-managed, is focused, works out, has ambitions, eats right. Not necessarily success, but there's a kind of trait that leads to it, that I can't quite put my finger on.
There's strong overlap with people who are competitive or are overachievers, but it's not exactly the same thing. "In the zone" is close, but I'm looking for a more long term or permanent kind of thing — the opposite of a slob or slacker.
Maybe there isn't a word, but there should be.
The post was closed by a mod for being "too broad" in August 2013, two years later it was deleted singlehandedly by a different mod. I don't want to name names, besides their names are visible to 10K users, and I'm pretty sure there must be a rational explanation for the deletion.
SE dictates that an answer or a question deleted by a mod, can only be undone by another mod. So casting a vote to undelete the question above will resolve nothing.
I understand that the question was too broad, that kinda makes sense, but I disagree with its deletion. I would like to know what the SE policy and criteria for deleting questions is, especially posts which have been upvoted and received numerous answers.
Why was this question deleted–no reason was provided–and is it possible to undelete it in the not too distant future?
This needs to be stressed; the question was closed by one mod, not by voting. The question was deleted by a different mod, not by voting.
The Help Centre page says:
Moderators can delete any question, and users with sufficient reputation can cast delete votes on closed questions.
It fails to mention that users cannot cast their votes to undelete a question previously deleted by a mod. If the question closed is “extremely off-topic” (e.g. proofreading), has attracted more downvotes than upvotes, has no answers or answers which have no upvotes, then THOSE are the very questions which should be deleted by the mod team. But a question with 68 upvotes and 32 answers? Can we not agree it is not the same as a wall of text asking users to proofread it? The request is in a completely different league. This is not your typical low-quality question.
How many closed questions are there on EL&U?
Therefore, you should generally view a closed question as one that has been nominated for deletion. If you think there's a good reason for it to stick around, say something.
This is me saying something. This is me asking why a mod deleted a popular and useful question without explanation. Was it unintentional? And finally, can this decision be reversed today?
Please upvote this post if you believe the aforementioned question should be undeleted. Thank you. UPDATE: Currently there are three users who have cast their undelete votes. The question cannot be undeleted by non-moderators, but heartened, I too have cast my vote to undelete. Every little bit helps...
