Escalated posts and Vanishing posts. Thumbs down and needs to be changed..
Recently I could not locate a post and wrote another post I thought I had posted a topic relating to Affiliate Libraries, but it seems to have vanished. where I was advised
"If it was moved to an appropriate category for that type of question, the helper doing so usually leaves "MOVED" link."
Believing the original post was lost in cyber space I wrote another post which has now been moved.
Image my surprise to subsequently to receive a personal message (FS system) (Just recently 5.15 pm my time 1 July 2021 AESTor UCT +10) about my ORIGINAL message saying it had been escalated. The link quoted was https://community.familysearch.org/en/discussion/87741/another-blog-and-articles-need-to-be-updated-for-new-email-contact-for-affiliates-libraries 27 June 2021.
What I think of a system that works in this way by completely deleting all trace of a post is better left unsaid. I think it is ESSENTIAL NOT OPTIONAL, that there is an indication that the post has been moved.
In addition I think the text prior to escalation should be retained and I refer to Brett's post Ridiculous, just WRONG. Idea; where, I have, interacted; &, Accepted Answer, NOW, Permission Problem which appears to have occurred after a post was escalated.
If I post on a Forum such as this I have an expectation that I WILL BE ABLE TO ACCESS COMMENTS I HAVE MADE, WHETHER ON MY OWN POSTS OR POSTS BY OTHER PEOPLE.
