    Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed a very odd thing that happens from time to time on this forum? I'm talking of course about disappearing threads. For example, where has "232287-my-autoblog-formula-hit-20-today-they-only-2-weeks-old" gone? It was on page 1 of Blogging just a couple of hours ago, but now it's nowhere to be found.

    Could it be that ideas that actually work are quickly deleted or moved elsewhere I wonder? If so, at least a place-holder notice attesting to that fact would be nice.

    I have noticed disappearing threads too. When I look into my subscribed threads I cannot find them anymore. I just assumed that they were pointless threads and were deleted.

    Threads are deleted all the time for various reasons. There's a thread to explain it somewhere.

    I have seen a few of my responses not making it but I have yet to lose a complete thread.

    I accept a thread may be deleted -- especially if it has 'inappropriate' content or no one shows any interest in it. But the threat I was asking about had almost 7,000 views and hundreds of replies, as well as 5 of those little star thingies, so obviously it was quite popular.

    I was wondering if perhaps the simple explanation is that threads that outline systems that actually work very well are quietly moved to the Jr VIP section or something...

    If a thread is excellent it might happen that it gets moved to jrVIP or executive VIP zone so that the method does not get saturated.

    My bad, there was a situation with the OP and it affected the visibility of that thread.
