This sent a chill through me. I keep telling myself I should be drafting all my comments in word documents, and then copying and pasting them. I, too, have a years’ worth of posts, many of which I would rather not lose. I sure feel for you! emoticon

That can't be because I am the Only Admin...I did not Request my team to be deleted...and yet...it is gone...

It happened several years ago as well...I used to Run a Giant Team of 500 Challengers The Biggest Loser Challenge...It was a 12 Week recurring Challenge...and Sure enough...One day without warning...all of the Entire Past Challenges (Our Challenge History) were Gone...I did not request it and we were devastated when it happened...So there is a History and may be more to this deleting of Teams than you may realize...

"Might I request that (SP) contact the Owners of the Teams before they Just Delete everything"
As mentioned, she only deletes teams upon request.
There is no need to contact anyone, as deletion is only upon request or at the discretion of the team's leader.

Oh...Not the answer I was hoping for...I guess I will have to chalk that up to experience and realize that I should not depend on a website to protect my information...If it is to be it is up to Me...

Might I request that (SP) contact the Owners of the Teams before they Just Delete everything and give the Option to Do whatever you have to do in order to keep it active...Or risk losing everything...

I know it probably does not matter to others...but I had years of Research thoughts and interactions that I still very much depended upon but was not actively posting as it was a Research Library...Not for posting but reading...I am fortunate to have bits and pieces here and there scattered about the internet...but I will never fully recover the vast amount of Research and Personal Triumphs and Struggles to reflect upon...

Thank You for getting back to me.

I'm sorry, once a team is gone, there's no way for us to get it back. Typically I'm the only one who removes teams when it's requested, but a leader can remove an inactive team. That's why I wondered if someone else took over the team and remove it.

Sorry I"m not more help,

It doesn't look like that team still exists. Did you have a co-leader or is it possible someone else took over the team? If it goes inactive, another leader could have removed it.
