Greetings, Frederic! The exact same thing happened to me. I had to repost my poem, "Far Yet Close" because it mysteriously disappeared. Thank God I had it saved on my computer! Whew...

That is sad. It's good that you can repost your poem (if you've saved it on your computer), but to lose all your comments and faves :( That stinks. Darn technology :/

Happened yesterday, I was really upset! I lost the comments, the favs. At least I had printed the poem and two poets were kind enough to comment a second time, comments are so important to me, to us all I think. I had lost a couple of Soup mails a couple of weeks ago. Spontaneous disappearances? Doesn't make sense.

It is best to always save your work in a Word Program. Glitches in a computer system happen all the time. Comments disappearing is frustrating, but can always be placed again. :) Keep smiling everyone. There are so many things to be thankful for. ~ Brandy

I am especially angry about those vanished soupmails I sent to my friends yesterday. My soupmails disappearing has happened several times before.

I sent three soupmails yesterday, now my sent file shows I never sent them. I commented on over 2 dozen poems yesterday and after checking , I found those too have disappeared. The entire poem thing disappearing has happened to me before. My time already being limited here now to several other factors, this is unacceptable and must be dealt with, whatever or whoever is the cause, IMHO.

I had to re-publish five of my poems which vanished last night. What a waste of time!

Oh my word. That is terrible. I hope everyone is reporting this to the administrators.

Hi Frederic. I am sorry to hear this happened. I have never seen this happen regarding complete deletions of poems. I heard it happening with other poets lately too. I hope this can be figured out and resolved quickly. I also hope you have saved copy of your work. :)

I had one comment from Greg that I went back to answer and it was gone. Not sure if there were others.... I hope they can fix this glitch soon.

As long as you don't disappear it's okay. This happened to me a couple years ago but not since. Now Harry & Meghan are in town (Fraser Island) and they want to meet me so I'm off. Harry and I are going to compare duchess stories. After all, he is married to one and I had my own throne (barstool) at the local Duke & Duchess pub for many years.

when much younger I hung out at a place called Mt Lookout Tavern, they had stools and thick oak chairs...I... hmm... carried one of the chairs out one night and 40 yrs and a few states later I am sitting in that chair right now as I type this

Any comments that I made or received today are gone, along with one received and answered Soupmail that disappeared. I did notice that Karen Krutsinger's contest was posted as judged earlier today, but now the winners' list is gone. Also, I made some edits to two posted poems, and I just checked and saw the edits did not post.

This happened to me today, too, Frederic, and I am rather upset, as it was very important to me and had three comments. Luckily, I posted it on Facebook, too, so I didn't lose it, but I usually just post here without copying. Weird stuff going on - I hope you didn't lose your poem, my friend!

wow, jan. Good thing I did not post today. It seems it's contagious!! I got only a few comments and I did not see results to the contest you told me was judged!!
Date: 10/21/2018 6:22:00 PM
I've noticed comments disappear, and views too. Weird.

I commented on & faved an exceptional poem yesterday. It disappeared as well. I was surprised for it was very well written & unlikely that the poet would delete it.

Dear Frederick, I noticed a few comments gone that I had posted. I imagine it is a glitch in the system. These kind of things happen. I shall replace the comment. :) Brandy

Hi Frederic, You beat me to it, I was just about to say the same thing. Submitted one a couple of hours ago and its vanished. I know of two other soupers whose poems I commented on have gone too. Have soupmailed them. If anyone had entered a contest then youll have to renter as it's gone from the contest entries as well Tom.
