Hey IFC, I recently got two messages that one of my posts was hidden.
But I can’t seem to see the post. Normally, if I got flagged, I would be able to see to edit or withdraw my post, but today I can’t seem to see it at all.
Here were my steps:
I received an email telling me that my post was hidden.
I clicked on the link which directed me to the system private message.
I clicked on the link to the post again and it highlighted another person’s post, but I didn’t see a post from me that said that the post is flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.
I tried it again a couple times and it didn’t work.
I created this topic since there were no other topics about this issue.
I hate it when I get flags, and I want to see the post to see what was wrong with it, so I could edit it to make it better or withdraw it completely.
If it’s hidden you can’t see it. That’s what hidden means.
The post was created by me.
Yes, it’s hidden. Doesn’t matter who created it.
I have gotten community flags before and the posts weren’t hidden when I was in the system private message.
It was flagged and deleted because it violated our guidelines. In this case, it was because you used fillers.
May I ask what fillers are?
It’s when you post something with less than 20 characters and add nonsense just to have more than 20 characters :)
Oh, I get it now. I did remember posting something like “ok.” Also, I have been flagged at least once in the past, but in the past, I was able to see the post that got flagged, but I wasn’t able to see it today.
Most likely because it wasn’t deleted that time.
Oh, so I’m guessing that this time it was actually deleted, but last time it was just hidden from the rest of the community.
This is one of many topics dealing with the minimum character rule:
This forum has a set 20 character minimum for posts. This is to make sure your posts are thought out and useful contributions. Many times when users use “Filler” a simple “Like” would have sufficed. Remember, this is not an instant messaging service, if you want to chat, do so via private message. Don’t worry if you have used “Filler” many times in the past, any posts created before today with “Filler” will not be flagged for that reason.
Ok, thanks for the help. You can close this now.
