Post subject: Missing post

I came to update/edit a post I made about comparing three different TV services (I have additional information) and I cannot find the post.

Unless that one was deleting intentionally there are random posts disappearing and while an "Off Topic" post is irrelevant in the scheme of things, a more important post may also randomly vanish.

Anyone know what happened to it?


EDIT: Just noticed that the word game thread is gone. And the question thread is gone. Someone pruning or did the DB barf?

Hi Kyle,

Topics in the Off Topic that have not seen an update (a new post) in few weeks (I am not certain how many weeks) are deleted automatically by the system.

Two weeks of no activity will cause a post in Off Topic to be pruned.

Unless there is a poll attached to the post, when it stays forever.

Yeah, it's a bug, but we've left it in the code. icon_smile.gif
