    You've only posted 2 messages so far, apparently - the message above, and a message in the "Lego Overwatch - any good?" thread.

    Sometimes if your comment is in the middle of auto-saving when you hit 'Post' it won't actually post and remains a draft. Perhaps that is what happened to the comment you are thinking of.

    Does this have anything to do with LEGO collecting?

    Tell us what it was and we'll tell you why it was nuked.

    I did not post in the LEGO overwatch thread as I never even knew that thread was there. I’d guess that my post was “moved” there. SumoLego said:

    As my original post was in this section  I posted this one in this section as well.....as for if it belongs here I think it did so I posted and as I see now I’ve been moved yet again. 

    Why when its moved over are you not notified of the move??

    Yes - I'm sure that's what happened.

    The onus is on members to check whether there's a relevant pre-existing thread before starting a new one, and staff may merge threads if people start a new one that isn't needed. Unfortunately no notification is sent if threads are merged, but if you lose track of a message you can always click on your name and then on 'discussions' or 'comments' to see what you've posted (and where!).

    I moved it to the Overwatch discussion, as is customary when new threads are started that overlap with existing ones.

    I guess I didn’t see me asking about backorders being the same as asking if the sets are any good or not, I had a specific question not a general in your opinion was it good or not. 

    But since you you are the one that moved it maybe you can ask why there is no notification that it was moved? I had no idea what happened and it was moved to a three week dead thread.

    Bah, three weeks is surely not dead. 

    Three years - now that'd be dead!  (Reviving something that old will get you an honorary place in the Zombie Thread Resurrection Society.)

    If you are concerned about where your comments have been moved to in the future, you can just click on your username and click "comments" underneath your user photo. From there it'll lead you to the discussion it has now been placed in.

    Expecting moderation to notify us every time they try and consolidate threads to keep the forum organized is perhaps asking a little too much when it doesn't take much work to figure it out ourselves.

    To be fair, most forums have automatic notifications if threads are moved/deleted/merged etc.

    Any chance that is a feature of Vanilla Forums that could simply be switched on?

    Bah, no thread of mine truly dies. They merely slumber until the world once again grows ignorant of their existence, when they once again unleash their wrath on the innocent and guilty alike...

    Hang on if posts are moved to the appropriate place how come I keep reading about sausages outside of the sausages thread? :)

    I just want to know "where have all the cowboys gone".  Not that I'm quoting a song.  Not that the title of this thread makes me think of a certain song.  #wherehaveallthepaulacolegone

    Where is my LEGO song?
    Where is my Fort Legorado?
