Deleted messages?

How come when I delete a message (for instance, just to clean up my orangeboard area) it doesn't actually delete the comment- instead it just hides the comment behind something that says it's been deleted, but it's still there cluttering up my orangeboard? This also seems to happen in the instructables themselves. If I make an error in a comment, delete it and then re-write it correctly - there I am with my message, and another one below it saying it's been deleted or removed etc. Why don't these things just go away when we delete them?

Accidental deletion

I had almost finished writing an instructable just now and I added another step. I didn't need that step so I wanted to delete it. I went to the drop down menu and hit the delete button only to find that I deleted my entire instructable. If I hit back on my browser it just came up that I didn't have permission to edit that page.  There is also no confirmation of deleting the whole thing either?  I am trying to suppress my anger at the moment, but is there anyway of recovering this?

A couple of times, I have tried to delete a question, and I will find out later that somebody had replied to it (and it will still appear in the QA section).  My operating system is Windows 7, browser is Firefox (I think it is the second latest version; I am not positive).  Thank you!

Intructable deleted itself

Hey, Recently i made an instructable called Codz30's Guide to Sparkler fun, I published it and was given a link for it asweel, like normal. After a few days i noticed it hadn't been index'd yet and when i checked just today, it wasn't under my published instructables nor my unpublished. I still have all the pictures etc in my library Any ideas?

Can't Delete Files

Hello, I am having some problems deleting images from my image library. Once any image is uploaded, they cannot be deleted, even if they are not assigned to an Instructable, or have ever been. No matter how many times I click on the delete button at the top-right corner of an image, the image disappears for about half a second, and pops right back up. Thanks! 1John310

Can't delete steps

I'm working on updating some of my instructables, (https://www.instructables.com/id/Solar-Cockroach-20/) (https://www.instructables.com/id/Solar-USB-Charger-20-21/) and one of the things I'm doing is removing some of the steps. In Chrome, in the editor I click the X to delete a step, and confirm that I am sure, and it pulls up a "Confirm Navigation" dialogue from Chrome which says "You have pending form responses. These form responses will not be saved if you leave this page. Are you sure you want to leave this page?" and I can click stay or leave. If I stay it will pull up a dialogue from Instructables saying "We hit an unexpected Problem. If this problem persists, please contact us about what happened." So here we are. The same thing happens in Safari, but the first dialogue is "From 'docs.google.com" instead of "Confirm Navigation" I sent a message to service@instructables.com a month ago and have heard nothing back. Does anyone know what's going on?

Drafts can't be deleted

It's been a few days since I've started to have problems with the drafts. After the last update I can't see the preview anymore, the same problem it's been reported by other users in  the bug report "Drafts messed up". The problem cannot be solved by changing the browser and refreshing the page after removing the cookies, and since then every new drafts (only step by step) ends up messed up in the same way. As if it wasn't enough I found the drafts cannot be reliably deleted. I first noticed it as I was making new drafts; after I saw they were still messed I deleted them just to find them again in the Draft page; apparently they disappeared on their own after some days. Are the problems related? I noticed that as I press "Delete"  for a split second a message appears: "sorry, there's been a problem updating your instructable", I tried to take a picture of it but it is too fast. I am waiting for theese problems to be solved since I would like to take part in some contests.  Thanks in advance

Write Up Deleted

I just spent 4 hours writing up a really kick butt guide using the new editor.  I went to publish.  Published it.   I had something like 15 steps written out, and then I had three.  Just three.  The rest were gone.  No idea why or how. What happened is that I started writing in the "old" editor, but stopped three steps in before switching to the new editor.  Seems as if the system didn't like that. Oh well.  Looks like I wasted four hours of my time.

Why do people delete their questions? Answered

More than once I've taken a lot of time to answer a question, done research, drawn a diagram, double checked my math and triple checked my spelling, etc, etc, only to have the asker later delete the question. (And all the answers.)Not a word of thanks or anything, just taking all of that work that I did for them and for everyone else who might have a similar question and delete it.I don't even get to keep a copy of it!  Which stinks because there are a few that I'd like to refer to again.  I know my answer isn't always the best so I often go back to questions that I've answered and see what good ideas other people have.  But it's impossible to do if it's deleted.*sigh*  So what's up?  Why delete your question?
