What the title says :P
I noticed that my post in "Implementing an internally linked list via inheritance" was suddenly gone. Looking at my profile, zero topics and zero posts are shown. Reputation is still there, it seems, but clicking on any of the items pops up a "couldn't find topic" error.

I still see all other posts from other people, so it doesn't appear like the SQL database failed or something... it's just my posts that are gone, it seems. Someone deleted me?

I do see several of your posts in the deleted content view, but it does not tell me why or who was responsible for doing so. I've left a ping for other moderators.

My fault!

I accidentally marked you as a spammer when reviewing your spammer report, and when you get marked as a spammer all your posts are marked as hidden. I'm fixing it. Sorry about that.

I imagine it along these lines:



Check out my book, Game Development with Unity, aimed at beginners who want to build fun games fast.

Also check out my personal website at bryanwagstaff.com, where I occasionally write about assorted stuff.

It was something like that.

"Ohh, shiny mark as spammer button. <click> Oops. Wrong member."

So people who are marked as spammers are still allowed to create new topics?

No. People who are marked as spammers are banned, and all their content (except journal comments, iirc) is deleted.

People are are unmarked as spammers are unbanned, but their previously deleted content is not automatically restored. That requires us to take an extra step.

Been gone in no-internet land and came back being ill for over a week, so apologies for the late reply. Thank you for fixing! :)
