    Disappearing thread

    A few minutes ago, I responded to a thread in the "editing forum": "Self-intro" by Evelynnnnn.

    When I posted it, a message told me that my answer would have to be moderated first.


    Then I noticed that the thread was "moved." But I cannot find it.


    Thank you

    It's pssible that the thread was deleted for some reason just as you submitted your response.

    I hope somebody will recover/undelete the thread.
    I'm sure TheParser spent a lot of time making his post.

    Re: Disappearing thread

    1. Posts by new members are automatically moderated. This is a defense against spam. At least our users don't have to see it.
    2. Replies to posts in moderation also will go through moderation until the original post is approved.
    3. I don't know why you were able to see and reply to a post still in moderation, but effect is that it "disappears" until approved.

    I have approved the original post and Parser's reply.

    I don't know why it was moved to "Ask a Teacher." It belongs in the writing section. I have moved it back.

    (I hope the next time she chooses a font that does not require a magnifying glass. )
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Disappearing thread

    It could be because she posted the same thing multiple times.
