Just have to share my dumb moment. I deleted all my comments. I thought I needed to delete them after they were approved like email. How stupid was that?

So here I had a bunch of comments on my pages now gone.

Stupid or what? URGH !!!!

You're not alone, PA. Every once in a while we notice that members delete perfectly fine comments. I don't know why.

Is it possible that you think you have to "clean up" your comments list on your account page and then don't realize that this will delete your comments from your page, as well?

I mean, I can understand that you might think that way. It's not really stupid thinking - it's just something you have to become familiar with, on a new site. Sorry you had to learn it the "hard way".  On the other hand, you caught it pretty quickly. That's good.  Smile

And I just left you a sweet comment! Oh well. Thanks for sharing. Because I very well could have done this tomorrow. (I hope I don't forget this topic in a scatterbrained moment)

chefkeem - perhaps a warning on the page of what deleting means.

Yes Chef that is what I did - I thought I had to clean it up. I am glad I figured this out now as well. Just sad cause I had quite a few comments that are now gone. I will definitely do that again - lol

That stinks, Party Animal. Cry Sympathies.

But the lessons we learn the hard way are the ones that stick.

PartyAnimal, you've not been the first to do so! Since this is a particularly *yikes* disastrous problem, we've just implemented a better warning. Thanks for letting us know

Hi Party Animal,

we'll restore all deleted comments and set their status to "non-approved" - that's because we don't know whether those comments were approved or not before they were deleted. You'll see them inside your account soon :)

Cheers,

Simon
