What happens to pages deleted because of trolling?:

What happens to a page that is deleted because of a troll? Are they able to be recovered, and to what extent? Will the articles be locked, and what happens to the account that deleted it?

What exactly are you talking about? Deleted forum threads are gone, although supposedly Eddie has a way to restore them. Same with deleted wiki articles, although we don't delete already-existing articles because of trolls. We ban them and clean them up. If someone creates an article specifically to troll, on the other hand, there's no reason to keep it.

Ironically, the pursuit of the definition of happiness does not appear to be a happiness-maximizing behavior.
[up] Thanks, I guess I was a little unclear but you answered my question ( it was about wiki articles).
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
