I'm not sure about before, but I am sure that last night I started a new topic in a suggestion area. This morning I happen to check on it, only to discover that it doesn't exist and the link I pasted to someone else is broken.
I can see two possible ways for this to happen:
1) Database issue; something simply caused it to not be stored properly.
2) Moderation; for whatever reason a mod moved/deleted/hid the post.
I'd like to know, if it is the later shouldn't I have been sent some kind of private message at least explaining why that occurred since I can't think of any reason the content would be bad? If it's the former, then is there anything that can be done or any 'problematic times' I can just avoid posting to the forums?
