I answered a question that was deleted, then undeleted, and my answer disappeared

+2
−0

Yesterday I answered this question.

This morning, when I visited site, the question has disappeared, so my guess is that it was deleted.

But now I saw that it was undeleted (I initially thought that it was posted again, but I don't think that's the case because my vote is still there), but it has no answers.

And, to make things more confusing, at the homepage, it says that there are 2 answers.

So, what happened to the 2 answers? Do I have to post mine again, or there was some problem and it'll be restored?


Not sure if it's related, but I also lost 1 rep.


Update: the answers are restored.

It's related to the abilities update; there's some DB reconciliation that still needs to happen. I remember seeing at least one answer there and I think two. It's not lost, just not properly restored yet. Sorry! Monica Cellio‭ about 2 months ago

We rolled out a fairly major update this morning - implementing our new Abilities system. However, it... didn't go as smoothly as planned; the database apparently didn't update properly with new content posted in the past couple of days (when we started the update process). This means that some posts and other updates aren't showing up properly.

We did make a backup right before taking the sites offline this morning, though, so the data isn't lost forever; it's just taking a bit of time to get it all sorted out and in the right places. Sorry; please bear with us while we try to get this sorted!
