Album deleted with no explanation

  • I drew [e: an album] a few weeks ago. I signed in today to see that someone "guessed a now-deleted album". Although there's no indication anywhere as to what it was, I have few enough albums that I can tell that that was the one that got deleted. I see no notification, email or other explanation as to the reason. What's the deal?

  • I don't keep detailed enough logs to figure out exactly what happened, but it's one of two things:

    1. You accidentally hid the album (albums don't ever get entirely "deleted" despite the wording)
    2. I accidentally hid the album

    There is a third option, which is that it got reported enough times that it got hidden. My logs are at least detailed enough to know that this is not the case. Your drawing didn't violate any rules as far as I can tell, so I restored it.

    In the future, you can go to settings->view complete stats to see a list of all your albums, including hidden ones.

  • Thanks for the response. I don't recall having done anything to hide it - I suppose it's possible to accidentally tab over to the button or misclick it, but I don't recall anything being amiss the last time I logged in (I forget when that was).

    For what it's worth, my point log shows a -250 on the 8th as being "from a mod" with the reason "album hidden", though for all I know that might be the standard message since I've never (intentionally) hidden an album.
