I noticed this as well. It’s weird.

Steampunkbride:  I think it’s just another bug.

As the IT people fix one thing, something else seems to be screwed up. Bees can delete 3 of their own threads. No one can delete their own or anyone else’s posts in any thread.

I too have noticed posts not appearing on threads that I know I responded to.

I’ve noticed a couple of my replies going missing, too – and it isn’t as though I was linking to other websites or being rude.

it would also be polite to at least have an automatically generated message informing you your post was deleted or edited by someone else, don’t you think?

I’ve noticed this as well. I don’t think it’s intentional, because some replies I’ve seen disappear have been really uncontroversial.

Entire pages of threads have been deleted, and it’s very strange. I’ve noticed it only on more controversial ones, but that may simply be because I return and check back on more controversial ones.

I assume it’s a bug, but I wish it would be addressed. I definitely was suspicious at first of moderation.

I was not aware of replies and threads being deleted. It is possible that it is a bug. If so, this is the first report I have heard. I will look into it tomorrow.

For the record, we only delete spam, threads/posts obviously created by troll accounts, and recently threads that were previously deleted on the old site but due to a bug were reinstated on the new site (only applies to a handful of threads). Just to be clear the moderation team does not randomly delete people’s threads and replies.

If you notice a particular instance of a thread or reply being deleted, I encourage you to report the issue in our support forum, which you can find a link to in the top left corner of the site. The more details you can provide the better so that our tech team can try to pinpoint the issue.
