Hi,
I have noticed a few times over the past month or so that some of my replies to posts are missing. I post very clean and on topic information. No reason that it would be deleted by an admin...so I can rule that scenario out.

Any thoughts as to why this would happen?:confused:

Thanks for your help!

Sometimes I have been distracted and forgotten to hit "Send", "post", whatever, then two or three days later I realize it's not there.

Did you click on the find all posts by scanjunkie option when you click on your user name?

It should show a chronological descending history of your posts.

If that doesn't help, maybe you could PM one of the moderators of that particular forum to find out if the thread was editted or split.

Some of mine have gone bye bye without any apparent reason and I'm hearing the same from several others too so you are not alone. I won't venture a guess that would probably prove wrong anyway, nothing of major importance so I just chalk it up to a ghost in the machine.

I just glanced back over your posts from the past year, and I cannot find anything that has been deleted.

Thanks
Same goes for me :D

Thanks all for the great info....I'm guessing I'll have to chalk it up to operator error...or ghosts.

I picked a bad week to stop sniffing glue...

How do I post a question on this site?
Hi shanehackworth , welcome to RadioReference :)

Your questions are slow to appear because new members have a five post moderation threshold to overcome. After that, post should appear instantly.

What were you thinking of asking by the way?

You know this happened to me and it was explained to me that the person I had responded to was removed from this site as they had a commercial link in the post and were considered a spammer. Poof! the next day the post was missing as if it never existed.

Maybe a same case scenario?
