Is edit history lost after moving a topic


(Boris Van Hoytema) #1

I’ve moved a topic between categories and somehow now I cannot see the edit history before the move. I’ve made some pretty stupid edits and deleted some things I shouldn’t have before moving. Is there a way to retreive these?

Thanks!

Changing a category should not effect edit history, no. We move topics here on Meta all the time and full history is kept.

To clarify, when you say “moved a topic between categories”, you’re referring to using the edit pencil next to the topic title and selecting a new category from the dropdown, correct?

Okay, so maybe it is me being an idiot, let me do some more research!
