Well, lel, I suppose I should be glad that I’m not alone in my concerns. I have gotten just enough really nasty flack from some of the staff at this place to make me concerned about it. At this point, I guess that I’m obliged to thank you for your support.
That said, this is one of the first entire threads to vaporize in some time. I have also only had about three posts (that I’ve noticed) skedaddle in the last week or two. All of these events are the first of their sort in over a month. The boards’ staff told me it was due to my high volume of posting that I lose so many of them. I’ve have only seen one or two other people check in about losing posts. I’m having a really hard time remembering if anyone mentioned losing entire threads. The biggest problem is that, even when I have reduced my posting volume, the problem has sometimes persisted.
Be sure that I have also asked if there is any way to detect whether a server address or pointer was lost instead of specifically deleted. I have yet to receive any definitive answer to this query. However, I was assured that the server had been reset and that, indeed, seemed to have helped immensely. For all of these reasons, I’ve yet to be able to convince myself of intentional deleting going on here. I do remain highly suspicious of how it is so often my threads and posts alone that take the big hit. I’ve done my best to provide the staff with the original post ID numbers of threads that were later deleted. Unfortunately, no one has ever bothered to respond as to whether that has been of help.
PS: I’ve restarted the Grandparents Thread. Please post to it.
