A couple of days ago a topic was started asking users if they had any grievance concerning iNaturalist. A few people had added posts to it, which incidentally were very mild as far as I remember, and then the topic disappeared – apparently within a few hours. What happened ? Why such a full removal ?
When I had seen that topic, it was very late in the night for me, I was just awake enough to add a like. Not finding it the next morning was very surprising; I even wondered if that had been a kind of dream. It took me quite some time to remember who started that topic so that I messaged him to be reassured of that thread having been a reality.
Now I wonder : is it true that such a thread has left no sign of its short existence, whatever the strength of the reasons leading to its removal ?
Or perhaps is there a “cemetery” section of the Forum, where users can find partial, moderated, even censured descriptions of what the fully deleted topics (or even the deleted posts) had been about ? That would be very hepful, and reassuring, for the standard user to know.
Thank you in advance for your time and understanding.
