Question - I answered a question on the 8th April, I'm pretty sure, according to my Chrome history. I read a question that I thought would also help me in my game, but when I tried the answer, it didn't work. So I looked on Bulbapedia and it turns out the other answer was inaccurate, so I then wrote and posted a better answer (in my opinion). However it's not appeared on the page yet. Is there any way for me to know the status of this post? Is it still pending? Was it lost? Was it posted and then hidden? Did I spend so much time on this site that I actually had a dream that I wrote and posted an answer on PokeBase!? 0_o
Suggestion - I understand from some recent posts and my American friend that it's been spring break recently, so maybe the admins haven't had time to check my answer or maybe there's a backlog ... if this is the case, I would like to suggest that posts pending approval by a moderator can be viewed by the original poster on their profile page, either in full but so that no one else can see it somehow, or even just a link saying the title of the question asked, and the fact that it's pending? Just so that if I did in fact dream it or it's been lost in the ether of the internet, then I know, and am not just waiting indefinitely and wondering if I am actually going senile or not..
Also, perhaps my post was hidden. If so, would I be told? If not, could I be, please? There seem to be a lot of people wondering why their posts were hidden. I think it would be nice if there was a system where the person hiding the post had to explain why, and then a message telling you that your post was hidden and the reason behind it was sent to you somehow, plus a transcript of your original post ... I think that would perhaps solve some problems for people? Because, if you're as stubborn and argumentative as me, I like to either be proven wrong, or prove my innocence, so to speak. I am happy to have posts removed and have it explained to me what I was doing wrong. I hate if someone removes a post and I am left wondering why, did I do something wrong, or did the person who removed it make a mistake? If I had a reason and a copy of my original script, I could at least argue back against it... or something...
Eheh, anyway I am going to be optimistic that my post wasn't removed, and that it is just pending, and that it will magically appear, any day now :)
