Where Did My Article Go?
August 4, 2011 10:16am CST
All of a sudden one of my articles is gone in Triond. It was a really good article and I think I may have been a victim of a flagger. Although I don't know what the justification on the flagging could have been because I wrote this article completely and did not even research. So I know it wasn't plagarized and it was not adult content. So where could it have gone? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Soapies, I think you will receive a notification if your article is deleted. Have you checked the deleted content in your account page? You may see the reason for the deletion. I hope you can get your article back. Since a human is checking the flagged articles manually, it is unlikely to have the article deleted without reason. I just hope that those lousy writers do not take revenge by flagging articles by good writers.

Hi scheng1 I have checked and it is not in deleted. I did not get an email that it was taken off and it is giving me a 404 error but for days now. Now I have 3 missing maybe more because I don't have every single article i wrote written down anywhere but maybe I should. It can be very confusing when you have so many one or even 5 can go missing without even really missing them. This one was missed because it was a popular one or I probably would have never know it to be missing.

Hmmm. This is the first time I have heard of a disappearing Triond article. I do not know if it is the effects of the new flagging system. This is rather worrying to me. I'm wondering of my articles are going to diminish in number. It does mean that I would need to keep a look out for missing articles. This is going to be difficult as I have a few hundred over articles in there.

What is the weirdest thing is that it is not in my denied column. I got no email which you would think I would get if it was getting removed and it just disappears from your list so you may not even know if you don't know all your articles off the top of your head or saved somewhere. I have just as many as you do too.

Yup, I never liked those flagging things anyway. Kind of stupid if you ask for my opinion. I mean, why would they want writers to turn against each other? Probably too many articles are being posted and they want to get rid to some so that they have less to pay.
