Comment not approved is deleted

    One of my comments was not approved by the author of the hub and so desappeared. Is this comment permanently deleted or can it be recovered?
    I worked several hours on this comment and it the best I have written until now. I have not made a copy and so it seems to be lost.
    Is there any way to recover it? I have written to the hub team, but they didn't answer.
    I am very interested to recover my comment and would appreciate any help.

      As I understand the whole comment thing (it is a mess, legally speaking - you know - are you responsible for comments left on pages that are yours?) - anyway - I understand that any comments left on pages then belong to the person who owns the page. In this case - the writer of the hub. In which case it is he or she you should be speaking to.

      Still - you will only make this mistake once huh? I  always wrote everything out in a text document since I lost my first page. big_smile

      Good luck.

        Thanks Deborah for your suggestion. I did the search. Up and down and again. But my lost comment was not there. So it seems it's lost. So it is the best to make always a copy. Apart of this I will be more careful when I post a comment...

      Mark is correct always make a copy of your work, but with regards to the comment contact the writer who wrote the hub that you made the comment on, could be that they have not gotten around to accepting there comments on that particular hub. smile

    A couple of hours is a long time to work on a comment?  Maybe next time write a Hub on that topic and what you wanted to say instead of writing it as a comment? Then nobody would be able to delete it, and what you want to say would be out there.  You could always then leave a shorter comment on the Hub you wanted to comment on.

      Yes, you are right and that's what I am doing usually. But this night I went into it and couldn't stop, then I was too tired to make a short comment and then just posted the entire comment. OK, I have learned from it...

    You commented on someone else's hub, its up to them whether or not it's published.

    Im sory you lost your comment, but even if you could regain it, the author of the hub denied it the first time, why would they allow it the second time? I agree with the make it your own hub, idea. Then you keep all your hard work.  smile

      Of course I don't want to send it the second time. I want to make a hub out of my comment. I always hate it to write something again and now it is worse because I have lately some difficulties with my memory, but I read that it is good to give my brain some work to do, so I might as well force myself to write it again!

      It was dark in the room when I took it, I tried to lighten it up but that was the best I could do.  smile

    If you spent 2 hours writing a comment then that sounds awfully long for a comment. LOL

    I think if it was me no matter how good the comment was if it was really long I would deny it too.

    It sounds like it would have been more appropriate as its own hub.

    Okay, although I am new here at HP,I do have experience in this regard. Check out my 2nd hub* & you'd know what I'm talking about.

    First off, this one I am not sure but it happened to me, comments on my hubs are shown even before I had a chance to approve or deny it.

    2. I approved 1 comment and it is shown.
    3. I denied it and it is not shown. But it is still there only I am the only one who can see it. And here is the answer to your question,it now has 3 options.
    A. Approve
    B. Spam
    C. DELETE FOREVER

    My advise, send a message to the hubber to mail you your long comment before he or she deletes it forever...


    *and while you're there, take a load off and answer the questions.

      Thank you for this hint. How silly I am: I know this and I didn't think about it befor to ask the huber for a copy. I will write him now, maybe it is not yet too late!
