Does an article deletion reset WP:PROD eligibility?

I came across this PROD, which raised an interesting question: if an article was previously AfD'd and then independently re-created later, is the new version eligible for WP:PROD or not? I can see different, reasonable interpretations that would yield opposite answers. One is that rule applies to the article title and PRODing is disallowed, which appears to be what the template warning implies. The other is that rule only applied to the article instance, and since the prior delete wiped the article history, the new article is a separate entity and is again eligible for WP:PROD. - GretLomborg (talk) 21:53, 7 July 2017 (UTC)

Quick PROD ?

Sometimes I propose an article for deletion in the New Page queue, providing a rationale, such as that it has no references and is too short to add encyclopedic value. It is typically a stub whose subject doesn't fall cleanly into any of the A7 subcategories. There is enough content, just barely, so that it isn't no context or no content. Then, maybe 12 to 24 hours later, I see that the article has been deleted with the explanation of Expired PROD. On the one hand, I don't disagree with the deletion. However, it doesn't appear to be the way proposed deletion was meant to be used. It appears to be a case where an administrator has decided that the article needs deleting, which it does. However, if the deleting admin thought that it qualifies for A1 or A7, I would have been able to learn from their choice of subcategory for future use.
