It could've just been closed and existed as an archive... I'm kind of upset I couldn't read any replies I received from a few hours ago  :undecided:

All of that history, just gone.... :cry:

Rant: My co has been working on our shopping list for camp literally all day. She's in a tizzy because the website lists the milk we want as out of stock, and I said it might be in stock before we need to order it (in 2.5 weeks) but that's not good enough because she needs to make an "official document" (her favorite two words) of our list. Why does it even matter goodness gracious just calm down.

Please refrain from reposting the same material.  You're already on watch.

I've checked the Moderation Log and there is no evidence of it being deleted. It seems to have disappeared.

I actually don't know what happened to it and I have P.M'd Arsalan to find out if there is a limit on how long a thread can be (I have no idea since we haven't had another thread of that length in all the time I've been a mod).

i was thinking maybe there was some kinda auto-archive function once a thread hits a certain number of pages or posts. but 231 is kinda a random number. maybe it's got to do with number of posts in a thread rather than page numbers.

one of the mods said it just disappeared so guess we just gotta wait to find out what happened.

The thing is, "official documents" are what your CoT has to send to her higher-ups. They're gonna check the price list and all and make sure everything is within the budget and such. My guess is that if the higher-up folks see that an item on your list is out of stock, they're going to assume that it's unavailable at the price y'all wrote down. So she'll have to make another one. Better to go ahead and find a backup plan from the jump.

Something's weird here, I'm not buying the auto delete idea.

CO2 just had a thread locked for asking the mods what gives. Why do that unless the site is going through another user/mod battle? We've had many of these before. Mod locks thread, everyone annoyed at being treated like child, multiple threads (some of them funny and some not) get started about mods, warnings doled out like candy, tedious passive aggressive BS until the weekend rolls around and we all remember we have lives.

The thing is there often was a reason for the initial lock. Many times the mods had warned users about what annoyed them. Does anyone remember what the last post was about?

My personal theory is that a mod got fat fingered and deleted the thread by accident but no one wants to own up to it. A "not in front of the enlisted men" type of deal.
