  2. What is your user role on that blog?
    (Administrator, Editor, Author, and Contributor) http://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/

    Did you create the posts in your dashboard at
    http://theempireoffilms.wordpress.com/wp-admin/post-new.php

    Or did you create the posts using the "Add New" on the main page for wordpress.com here http://wordpress.com/#!/post/

    i use the same account as my friend so administrator

  5. Using the same account is not wise.

    Go to Posts > All Posts, hover over the title of the post, click Edit and check the Post Revisions module for previous saved versions of the post.

    If you're not seeing the Revisions module while on the editor screen, click Screen Options (top right corner of your Admin page) http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/ to activate it. Then select the post and page modules to include them. http://en.support.wordpress.com/modules/#list-of-modules Then you ought to be able to go here > Dashboard > All Posts > Posts and locate the post and recover it from post revisions.

    If you cannot locate the post for locating and restoring a post revision, and it's not in your Trash folder http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/ then you will not be able to recover it. http://en.support.wordpress.com/trash/#restoring-from-trash

  6. i've tried reviving the post, but dont worry ill try strat a new account to manage the blog

  7. when i post articles they are automatically deleted after some time (less than 24 hours)

    Posts should not be deleted automatically like you've described, and if a post is deleted manually it should appear in the trash as timethief mentioned.

    I have some questions:

    1. Does the same problem happen *every* time you create a post, or just sometimes?

    2. Are you able to repeat the problem still?

    3. When you click publish, can you describe the very next screen you see?

    4. After you publish, do you verify that the post is in fact appearing live on the blog? How do you know it posted? (I'm just wondering this because you said the posts are disappearing within less than 24 hours.)

  8. 1. Yes it occurred every time

    2. Yes I probably would be able to

    3. I'm not sure I think its a loading page than it says new post or view post

    4. Yes they do appear I even got some likes before it was deleted, they use to be in the trash but now they are just being deleted

    But I have created a new account and set myself as editor si I doesn't really matter now as I can post articles without a problem

    That's interesting.

  10. Thanks for the info and updates lauyboy.

    @timethief, this case seems to be pretty isolated. I haven't seen any other similar reports with the same conditions so far(i.e. more than one person using the same username + posts auto deleting), and if setting up a proper/separate username solves it—I think that's a good workaround for rare cases that match the conditions reported here since WordPress.com isn't really design for sharing usernames.

    If we see the same issue reported again (auto deletes), we should ask them to make sure they are using their own separate username.
