I just noticed a thread has been wiped off - the one titled "Landscaping around sculpture" - anyone have ideas what's going on?

It does come up as a missing file. Could D-D have requested it be taken down for picture reasons?

That's certainly the least paranoid option to consider.

I had this problem two weeks ago also; a thread I commented on disappeared. This morning I commented on the sculpture thread - maybe I am on the no-fly list and screwing things up. Thats probably my most paranoid option-ha.

If it helps, the other thread eventually came back.

Hmmm - your screen name could sound like an alarm bell for some guardians of innocent minds!

It might be an alarm bell, but when I look at my dirty fingernails on the keyboard it sure is accurate!

someone complained that when I watermark my photos that I use my full web address.
This is not allowed, and I understand and support the policy.
So if you want to protect your photos you have to use a watermark without a web address - just your name is fine.

So DD, are you saying the previous thread was removed because of your watermarks? I'm not sure I understood this right.

RE: What's happening, threads disappearing?

yes,
I received a " Friendly Reminder " message saying that : While we understand the need for watermarks on photographs, if you choose to use your website url as your watermark, we cannot allow those photos to be shared on our forums."

My watermark is my website address, so now when posting photos I must erase the .com that comes after dervissdesign.

That was a good call on iVillage's part. It's much more important to rap the knuckles of a talented, seasoned contributor than even pretend to moderate the spam. Well done.

Good, I thought I messed the thread up Deviant I was like jeez, I didn't mean to take it over. BTW like your old olive tree nappa valley picture.
