A post disappeared

  1. Howdie,

    I've just checked my Facebook page and one of the posts seems to be completely gone. I've checked trash and it is not there. I haven't deleted any of my posts and all it looks strange.

    It has been published as per Facebook on 21.02.2013.: PS4 revealed - first thoughts. I have it backed up on a file on my PC, but I am interested how it got deleted without receiving a notifcation or whatsoever. What could be the reason?

    Kind regards,
    Valentin

    The blog I need help with is gmpgames.wordpress.com.

  2. What is the URL or the title of this missing post please?

  6. Hi again timethief!

    Thank you for your time and efforts.

    I still can't get it - the link you've posted lead only to my most recent articles and could not locate this. As I said, I have a back up on my PC. However if I post it now it would be with today's date stamp and I could not retrieve the place the original one.

    Any idea what the reason could be that it disappeared? Could it be removed without notice from a webmaster?

  7. Do you have any other users with Admin status on your blog?
    I tagged this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond.

  8. No, it is only me, so no one could delete it, and if someone could log in there is no point of deleting just this exact post.

    Thank you for your kind assistance, I am subscribed and will be checking it out.

    Have a nice evening (day).

  9. That post was deleted on February 27 by your account, it cannot be recovered.
