I am a moderator for this forum, but I don’t know what happened to your thread, @jack22 . I always get in touch with people if there is a cause to delete one of their threads or discuss their behaviour, as you probably remember from not long ago. Deleting threads is not my preference, though; I much prefer to close threads, if I have to, so that everyone can see why action has been taken.
F1 Fanatic might be having some problems today; an article I was commenting on this morning has disappeared from the main site, for example. That could be an explanation. I’m sure we’ll find out in due course.
I would like to say this, though: if you are having a problem on the forums, the best course of action is to get in touch with a member of staff directly. @damonsmedley, @AUS_Steve and I moderate this (F1) group on the forums, so if your problem relates to a thread made here, getting in touch with one of us would be a good start. Alternatively, @keithcollantine runs this website, but bear in mind he has lots of other things to be getting on with. Making a thread like this isn’t particularly productive, as everyone is just speculating on what happened, but I’ll leave it open for now, until this issue is solved.
