Inconvenient. Unknown number of users impacted.
Moving a topic’s posts into a different topic, then moving posts back to their old topic causes the posts to be deleted.
Moving all the posts within a topic to another topic activates a timer to delete the (now) empty topic. However, moving posts back into the (previously) empty topic does not remove the timer. So, posts are silently deleted.
I was consolidating a lot of topics into one collated topic, and accidentally placed a topic that should not have been in there in there. This was brought to my attention, so I moved the relevant posts back into their original topic.
Silently, three days later, the original topic automatically deleted itself:
The timer would be cancelled, because the topic has posts again, and is not closed anymore.
- Create/find topic with multiple posts
- Move all posts into new/existing topic
- Move all posts back into original topic
- Wait 3 days
- See original topic get deleted
I assume the 3 days is configurable . Although, if they were, then I suppose Jesus would have changed the config too.
