How to find deleted posts

Is there a way to see a list of deleted posts? (ie, when users their own posts?)

Sometimes I can see these within the thread (with the message ‘post deleted by the author’) but other times, people have got in touch to say that they have accidentally deleted a post, but I can’t find it anywhere.

I’ve set the ‘delete removed posts after’ setting to two weeks, so they shouldn’t be fully deleting off the system yet.

You can view a user’s deleted posts on their profile at /u/username/deleted-posts

So for example if you were an admin here you could see my deleted posts at https://meta.discourse.org/u/awesomerobot/deleted-posts

Thank you very much. Nothing shows up on that link for the users in question, so I suppose the posts have been fully deleted somehow, although I am not sure how at the moment.
