Where did my thread go?
« on: September 19, 2018, 04:07:10 PM »
It seems like my thread with a poll about for or against a world government/federation has completely disappeared. It is no longer in the general discussions section, and I checked my posting history, it is completely gone and thus it doesn't look like it was moved either. What happened?

Weird.  I could imagine someone moving it to Politics maybe, but it's not there either.

My successful and charismatic posts are also missing.

It's the Mandela Effect happening here.

Too bad, I had some really great points about alien invasion. :laugh:

I think it may have been misclicked deleted.

Checking into it.

It's the Russians! I voted but some how my vote wasn't counted. The whole damn system is out of order.
and Donald Trump is President of the United States.

It's another insane conspiracy theory that would actually explain a thread we all remember, but doesn't exist.

I’ve checked the logs, and it appears that I somehow deleted your thread with a stray tap on my phone.  I am incredibly sorry.  Moreover, it appears that we do kit currently have a means of recovering such deleted threads.  I would encourage you to restart your thread.  Meanwhile, I will be implementing a recycling bin to preserve deleted threads in case a similar accident occurs in the future.

mea maxima culpa

ETA: Wastrel thinks he may be able to extract the thread from a backup, so perhaps you should hold off just a little while longer.

Just for the record, I have enabled the Recycle Bin so that any future accidental deletions will be completely reversible.  That doesn't help us with this one, though.

Update:

I've sent wastel the most current backup I had before the 19th.  Unfortunately that is from the 16th, so it may be from before the thread was created.

Quetz, you should start the thread again and if we find it, we will merge them together.

Meh. Ok I'll look into that.
