    Exclamation MODERATORS...why was my thread randomly deleted...?

    EDIT: The issue (with my post, at least) has been resolved. Thank you.




    I posted a new thread here in the Off Topic section yesterday, and now it's just gone. I can only assume that a moderator deleted it. I did not break any forum rules that I know of: it was not racist, sexist, etc.; It was not political; I didn't swear in it (pretty sure...).

    This is unfortunately not the first time this has happened here at TW forum. I do not appreciate my threads/posts getting randomly edited without my knowledge or consent and/or permanently deleted for no apparent reason. This kind of nonsense needs to STOP, seriously! Maybe that isn't what happened here; perhaps there has been some technical issue or something. As I said, though, I can only assume that a moderator deleted my thread; that would be the most likely cause of its suddenly vanishing.

    This time, my thread entitled "Ocotillo Wells Camping/4x4, Update on Rain-proofing Camper Shell, and Jeep Gladiator" appears to have been totally deleted by a mod, without so much as a warning or notification that I need to change something in it that broke rules, or even a courtesy notice letting me know it was deleted for X reason(s). I spent at least a solid half hour writing up that thread, probably more, and now it's just completely gone. This is not cool.

    If anyone could let me know what has happened/why and/or reinstate that post, that would be great...

    I responded to a thread yesterday and see that it is not there today.
    Maybe there is some technical issue.

    I firmly believe that this is a tech issue. There are posts (in addition to yours) that I read this AM that are no longer there. Furthermore, the main forum page is showing newest posts being over 20hrs old will in the sub-forums there are ones less than an hour old. "Strange things are afoot at the Circle K!"

    Hopefully, you guys are right, as that would certainly be preferable to my initial assumption. In any case, I hope these missing posts are still out there somewhere and can be put back as they were.

    Same has happened to me so don't fret. Of course in my case I may have composed a wonderful anecdote and then signed-off without posting it. A combination of old age and being an imbecile.

    Brother KJ, no moderator has deleted your thread or anyone else's for that matter. The forum has been messed up for days displaying threads and posts. It is a tech issue. Supposedly they have been working on it.

    NOTE TO SITE OWNERS: FIX YOUR WEBSITE, YOU ARE FRUSTRATING AND LOSING MEMBERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    wow you guys are so right i replied to a classified from Nordic and today it shows zero replies so posts are being dropped. Forums are bought up to sell advertising and I'm sure they saw a popular, steady and always growing forum with good engagement by users over time and they thought they could sell Ford trucks and other stuff TW owners have no interest in. After a few year experiment I think we have been relegated to the red headed step child category.

    I have always lamented not buying the forum from Chopper Charles back in the day !

    Forum owners please sell this piddly TW forum to the users here to run as our own little coop and we will be forever greatful !!!

    Are you guys getting pop-up videos that constantly appear. When I try to close them they usually go full screen. This is one more kick in the [email protected]+$.

    KJ - as LT suggests, no-one has deleted anything – it’s a site glitch - (I actually gave your post a “like”, and I still can’t find where it went)

    As you will be aware, any techy people involved in internet development like to complicate things until it doesn’t work anymore, so that they can then solve the puzzle – it’s a bit like doing a crossword puzzle on an Etch-a-Sketch – they’re never happy once it’s completed

    This “self-perpetuating” employment opportunity has led to things such as the development of “Quantum Computing”, and so the theory of “Schrodinger’s Cat” comes into play

    I have now “mentioned” this error to VSAdmin, and if I receive a reply that doesn’t say “Depends on when you looked”, I’ll get back to you …….
