I know this is a problem in the some of the forums, and am not sure if everyone is aware of it, but the server issues have been randomly deleting threads.

So I was thinking outside of the box today (because that's what I do for living) and I figured out a way to restore deleted threads.

Here are the instructions:

1 - Click the "profile" option of any person that you KNOW has posted in that thread.
2 - Click the "View all posts by ______" option.
3 - Scroll down until you see the thread you are looking for
4 - Click on that thread's subject (which will open the thread)
5 - Hit "post reply" and type a reply (I've been keying "restored")
6 - Click "submit" and your reply (and the original thread) will reappear under the correct UserGroup.

I realized that our posts are stored in our profiles even if the thread is deleted by the system, so I thought I'd give it a try and it works fantastically.

I have a fear that each time I restore a post using this method, an adorable little gnome somewhere dies...I really hope that's not the case. :unsure:

Anyway....there you have it folks!

Post are not stored in your profile. The DB isn't defined like that. Those "random deleted" posts still exist, they're just not on the front page.
