Hi. Something weird happened to me yesterday, and I hope someone can help clear up this mess.

Yesterday, when I went to My Quizzes-Edit, I could not simply find a template. It seems to have disappeared. It was created at the most for 10 days, and as other quizzes of mine had been left untouched for longer periods, I don't think the system could have deleted it. And I certainly did not delete it. Even weirder- I had other unfinished templates too, and nothing happened to them.

However, I did not write any questions or even an introduction for the quiz, so I have not lost anything. But I don't want anything like this to happen again! Please, can someone give me a reason as to why this might have happened? Thanks!

Was it "Lost in a Poetical World"? I can see that the category was changed to General, and now it's not showing in your quiz list. Hmm, but neither is it showing that it was deleted. It seems still to exist but I don't have access to quizzes in that category so I can't tell anything further.

Can a General editor please look into that?

You are quite right, LadyCaitriona. It was "Lost in a Poetical World".

That quiz was deleted by an editor on Mar 31. Deletion note is "blank quiz". Usually this only happens if a template has been abandoned for a long time... so either your 10 days is incorrect or the editor made an error.

In either case, mystery solved.
