    I thought for sure I made several posts over the past couple days, including some shit-talking about Antonio confirming himself as the villain of NA PAD when he said there is no villain TWIRLING HIS MUSTACHE (i.e, the villain is clean-shaven), a Godfest disappointment post, and a thread asking for suggestions to cover red on an RHermes team. Today I can find zero of those posts. I received no notifications of posts being reported, moved, or deleted either. I thought the mods would send messages explaining why threads were deleted whenn it happened, unless I remember wrong.

    What's going on? Was everything a dream? Am I going insane? Am I stuck in a time loop? Did I get attacked by an enemy Stand?

    I had something similar happen with one of my posts (and I do remember seeing several of yours). All day yesterday, I seemed to flicker between two versions of the forum. One where stuff along the right seemed to be messed up and one where everything along the right looked fine. It kind of felt like I was in some sort of forum twilight zone. The issue, whatever it was, seems to be fine as I have not flickered at all.

    I can at least confirm the post about the twirling mustache villain, so at least you're not imagining things on that front.

    EDIT: Also, after deciding to check the Q&A topic I made a few days ago, which you answered, I'm failing to see it, so it looks like you might not be the only one affected.

    Likewise, I saw (and liked) that post about the clean-shaven villain. I think Neo's been dabbling in time travel.

    Same shit happened to me late last night. No notices on recent posts I made. Went in and saw that the GF Results post that I made yesterday (that everyone replied too) vanished. So did all the updates to my signature and Status.

    One of the members came in and said the last 2-3 days worth of posts and updates vanished from the server. I reported my missing post earlier this morning on that thread that Freddy posted, about the server issue being fixed.

    I have noticed that the server is running slow. Takes a while to post and click on stuff. Not my browser though, the rest of my internet browsing is running at full speed.

    I was wondering about the same thing. I made a crack about Aizen, and it's gone as well.

    Your post in my Machine Athena thread disappeared too. Weird.

    Even though I can still see my post (I managed to post it twice), would it be worth re-posting the question (never got any responses, but it seems to be tracking views at least) or wait it out some more first?

    I would post it again if it's important.

    Makes sense. It was more about asking for guidance on a monster I recently pulled (may or may not imediately help my current teams). I can wait a bit before re-posting again. By the way, thanks for the response.

    Clearly, the simplest explanation is that these posts are alive and well in a parallel universe. For what it's worth, they're probably as confused as we are.

    Okay, so it's not just me. At first, I'd just assumed I forgot to click "Post Reply" after typing out my 4/15 fest pulls on my PAD blog thread.

    My guess is the server host or admins had to roll back either the entire server (which would include the database server for forums) or just the forums to resolve whatever issue took them down recently. That seems like the most plausible explanation.

    But I still like @Faust's explanation better.

    I somewhat felt that way with my posts. I was attempting to keep up with both universes waiting on an answer! The only thing missing was some twilight zone music in the background, or perhaps a monologue by rod serling :)

    Just realized the mask farming tally for upcoming Revo forms that I'd posted to my PAD blog thread is gone, too. :(

    Looks like it's still happening; made a post last night before I went to sleep, post is gone now.

    When viewing new threads, I keep seeing threads, then they're gone, then back again when I refresh
