HELP!!!!


Blog Posted:2/10/2017 4:37:00 PM

One by one, my poems are disappearing from my page. It is also withdrawing from the contests they were written for. Is anybody else experiencing this? I am so damned angry i could scream. I don't do stress!!!

I'm telling you all right now, if there are any of my poems you like, you better make you a copy now, because if any more of them disappear, I will not be re-posting. Thank you.

There was no explanation but I changed my password and the thievery ceased. Still not sure how many were erased:(

First I read of plagiarism, now total poem disappearism! You must write to PS (found under MEMBER AREA, I believe.) You may not do stress, but Daniel it is doing you. I sure hope you have paper copies. May this quickly and effectively resolve. CayCay

Daniel, I have had poem entries not show up in contests but never had poems disappear although with the pages and pages of poems I have on this site it would be hard to tell. I keep a paper copy of all my poems (which is another issue ) . I am so sorry this has happened to you, I hope you get it sorted out asap..

I had the same a short while ago. At least one poem disappeared, from my list and from the contest. And I know it happened/happens to others as well, I have no idea what causes it. I have my own blog luckily, so it's not completely lost, but still it's VERY disturbing.

I did report it. I guess I just missed out on the contests. I'm angry, I have to go take a time out.
