I recently posted a review of Paul Harris' Art of Astonishment books 2&3, which was deleted by Scott Guinn(yes, we will gang up and beat you to a pulp at the convention Smile ) I wouldn't gripe except that it took me a great deal of time and effort(for anyone who read it, it was very lengthy). I had typed it late and night and planned to save it in the morning...when I woke up and checked the cafe it was gone and I had a nice flashing PM sign at the top of my "virtual dining table". Scott told me that it had been deleted and gave a reason for it. I had no problem with this until I realised that it was not retrievable. I wanted to write that review and send it into magictalk. So I ask that a new feature be built into the Cafe. Whenever a post is deleted the moderator who informs us about it must have a copy of the original message. If you could apply that I think that it would strengthen my expierience here at the cafe.

Jakks,

No we don't have a copy of it. We edit or delete it and then send you a message. If you plan on using information in a post for something or somewhere else, you should save it to your own computer at the time you write it. We simply don't have the space or the time to save every post we delete or edit (there are over 80,000 posts here now!).

Just highlight the tex, hit "copy" on your edit menu and paste it into Word or notepad--takes about 3 seconds, and it's saved on your computer.
"Love God, laugh more, spend more time with the ones you love, play with children, do good to those in need, and eat more ice cream. There is more to life than magic tricks." - Scott F. Guinn

Yes, I know the drill, but I had no idea you were going to delete it. I just think it would be a good idea(the one posted above) because when you have 352 *.txt files of messages it gets very confusing.
