[Jun 09 2013] - Deleted accounts & Comments


June 30 2013 :


Please note that comments which were received before the end of 2010 could not be recovered because before we made the change to preserve comments from authors who have deleted their account, the code was written in a way to destroy those records.

Hi everyone,


This is to inform you of the work we performed on the site's code last night.


You will notice that there are comments on some poems that do not have an author's name attached to them.  This is not due to a glitch, it is because we fixed the display of comments by authors who have deleted their account as per the PoetBay community's expressed wish to not have the comments received on their poetry deleted when an author deletes their account.  


Many of you who have 'lost' comments on your poetry by authors having deleted their account will now be able to see them.

Thanks Isabelle

Recently we have had some new writers here, whose work I have liked, I am sad to see them go, is there some way we can encourage them to stay? I did notice that some posted quite a few poems at a time - would it perhaps help to have a guideline of posting, just to help those, who through enthusiasm perhaps post rather more, thereby giving them the chance to be read and commented on by more?

Just a thought, I hate to see talent leave
