Do posts ever go missing? (Mine has)

SeanJeanquoiSeanJeanquoi Posts: 682Registered Users
I'm probably going to look stupid when it re-appears, but I made a post 4+ hours ago and I edited it after the fact, which sometimes sends it away to get approved. So I edited it, it was sent away...and it has not returned in 4 hours or so.

Is this something of a common occurrence? Have posts been known to be deleted or lost when they are sent away? Because usually takes an hour at most to return and considering the effort I put into the post, losing it would be quite the blow.

I would ask tech support but I'm not sure who that is or how to do that at the minute.

    Edited and/or quoted posts will often be held by the forum system, especially if they have links, so they can be manually reviewed as a potential spam post. They have to be manually OK'd by CA Staff members or by a Moderator.

    Just be patient. It sometimes takes awhile. Thanks.

    Something else that can make posts require approval is the length. I know that a number of posters struggled when we switched to this forum because the character limit is relatively low so they couldn't add to existing posts from the previous forum.

    I think another possible criterion could be formatting.
