Why did my thread get deleted?

Post by davidmedin » Sun Jan 14, 2018 2:41 pm

I just posted a perfectly innocent (?) thread requesting a feature in the features and ideas forum and it got deleted shortly afterwards with no explanation.

Which rule did I break or is this an arbitrary decision made out of contempt for a particular poster?

Thanks - I guess ... (beginning to regret recent donation now)

It did not! It was moved to the Cinnamon area, and if you open it there you'll see why. You're right: that thread is perfectly fine.
An easy way to find your own threads again is by using the 'Your Threads' link in the Quick Links dropdown, top left of the page.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

Old bugs good, new bugs bad! Updates are evil: might fix old bugs and introduce no new ones.

Best to get informed before making accusations.
