I had a lengthy post in the "magic for sale" section. Today it just vanished. How did this happen and why?
Thanks for your help.

When did you post it?

posts there only last for so long before automatically deleted

Also, some of the guidelines do suggest one thread per item/related items

Posts in the let's make a deal forum are deleted 15 days after the original post. Today, all posts dated Aug 13th or earlier were deleted.

Here's the section of the rules that explains it

Quote:
Because items are often sold or traded quickly, members may occasionally forget to post that the transaction is complete. To conserve bandwidth and avoid confusion, posts will be automatically removed 15 days from the original insertion date. "Bumping" is not allowed. This uses up vauluable bandwidth and causes newer postings by other members to be driven farther down in the forum which isn't fair to them. Post that use "bumping" to bring the topic to the top of the list will be deleted, no questions asked. Should you still wish to sell or trade the item, you may of course repost after it is deleted.
