Why would "Added Information" reference I have added disappear?
I added a reference to the "1915 History of Clinton County, Ohio", as an 'Added Information' entry for my ancestor Nimrod Huston Moore where a biography of him had been written up.
Why would this entry have just disappeared from his person page without a trace?

You would not be breaking any rules (unwritten or otherwise) by entering a custom event or custom fact. However, there is unfortunately no means of linking such an entry with a source citation, except by referring to it in the reason box. (Source tagging is only available for the conclusions in the Vitals section.) The other problem is that both events and facts have only a single line in which to describe them:
Your notes about the inaccuracies in this source would fit a whole lot better as a Note on the Collaborate tab -- but of course, most users look there even less often than at the Sources tab.
(I spend about equal amounts of time on Sources and Details; their separation in the previous Worst Idea FS Ever Had was and is my biggest complaint about it. [The current WIFSEH is the search interface clustercluck.])0
Welcome to the "Community.FamilySearch" Forum.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
Just in passing ...
As I am "Related " ...
I just took a 'look' at Nimrod Huston MOORE ( K8SG-KD9 ).
Question: Where did you originally post such.
Nothing the "ChangeLog": https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/changelog/K8SG-KD9
[ Nor, in "Memories" ... ]
Is it, that you were posting something, that took some time; and, when you "Saved" such ... it "Vanished" ...
[ ie. "Disappearing", WITHOUT a trace; and, NEVER being posted/saved ... ]
As, the "System" time-outs, if one takes TOO long, in preparing and saving ...
I posted it two days ago, and It did show up in the 'Other Information' section of the person page.
Since you say it doesn't show up in the change log, I'm stumped as to what happened.
I guess I was wondering if I put it in the wrong spot or something else, and some mediator removed it.
I don't even know if there are mediators.
I guess all I can do is re-enter it and hope for the best.
Thanks for responding.

Again, just in passing ...
'Yes', that DOES 'sound' ODD ...
As long it was NOT, against any "Code of Conduct" (eg, Offensive; Abusive; Controversial; etc), I honestly doubt that any "Moderator" (or, "Administrator") would have "Removed"/"Deleted" such. Especially, without notifying you in the first instance.
IF, such was a "Memory"; THEN, that would be another matter, entirely ...
As, "Memories" (especially, "Images") are subject to "Image Moderation" (which, in the FIRST pass, is done by a Computer); where, such can quite easily be "Rejected" - of course, subject to "Appeal"; where, it is then 'viewed' by a REAL Person.
'Yes', I totally agree ... re-enter, try again ...
[ Plus, in that instance, it would not hurt, to take (and, keep) a "Screenshot" of such 'in-situ' ... ]
[ Just in case, if needs be, if it "Vanishes"/"Disappears" again ... ]
[ You then have "Evidence"/"Proof" ... that you can submit, if needs be ... ]
Just a thought.

OK, I think I see the problem. The problem is that I'm new at this.
I apparently created a 'Source' when what I thought I wanted to do was to create an 'Other Information' event, possibly a Custom Event, with the Source I created linked to the Custom Event.
The source document that I found (actually found by my brother) holds enough historical information that I feel that it should be included in the 'Details' page somehow, rather than be included as just another 'Source' where it is more likely to rest in obscurity and be unnoticed.
Can anyone give me any suggestions as to the proper way to include important historical information in the 'Other Information' section without breaking some unwritten rule of genealogy etiquette that I am unaware of?1
