for what reason was my post deleted? if I did something wrong, please tell me so I won't do it again. However I believe my question to be valid and inoffensive...
Your question was deleted because it was posted as an answer. A comment was left there by the moderator who deleted it, and that comment, and the "answer that is really a question" to which it is attached are still viewable by some people, including you as the owner of the deleted post (if that link isn't viewable to you, please leave a comment here). For simplicity, I'll cut n' paste the explanation from that comment:
Welcome to Raspberry Pi! If you have a NEW question, please ask it by clicking the Ask Question button. If you have sufficient reputation, you may upvote the question. Alternatively, "star" it as a favorite and you will be notified of any new answers.
Not all of it may apply to your context, but very clearly the second sentence does.
When you sign up, you are invited to take a tour. People who actually take and read the tour receive a badge ("informed"). This may seem a bit silly, but since badges are public, one useful aspect of this is that it is then easy to tell who bothered to take the tour and who did not. You did not. I recommend you do, and not just for the silly badge ;)
I don't know what percentage of new users do take the tour, but I notice it has been awarded to ~10 people in the past day. This can be casually correlated to the number of "questions posted as answers" we deal with daily (at least a few), the vast majority of which are posted by new users who DID NOT TAKE THE TOUR. Huh! Interesting.
Put another way, your post was deleted because you figured it was a waste of time to:
Read the Documentation That was Clearly Indicated To You
Sometimes failing to waste time with silly things like reading documentation results in more wasted time in the long run.
