John Pitchers answered Cant edit my module, blank page with a input select (see below) but his answer was deleted by a moderator.

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with the answer (other than it being flagged because of it's length which doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad answer).

I was the person (or one of the people) who voted to delete this.

Personally, I believe answers that require confirmation from the OP should be posted as a comment rather than an actual answer. More so in this case due to the length of the answer.

Perhaps this may seem a little harsh but it's normally the process I go by.

You are of course, quite within your right to vote to undelete :)

I didn't vote to delete this answer - or at least I can't recall myself doing so - but usually this type of short answers, where the half of the answer is a question to the OP look and fit better as a comment under the question rather as an answer.
