My Crystal Ball Didn't Work - Rejected

My Crystal Ball Didn't Work - Rejected


I was so proud of myself, I was Johnny-on-the-Spot with my entry into the Crystal Ball Contest. Even got an atta-boy from Praful about my prompt work. I happily placed my blog post in the Contest Group and moved on with my day!

I was feeling pretty good....then I got an email. 

"Your post was removed from a Group"

What did I do? 

Wrong prediction? 

Too optimistic? 

Too pessimistic? 




Doesn't anyone want my opinion? 

So...I'm going to try this again. I'm going to post this to the Contest Group

Ah....The Crystal Ball!

Now that this post is one-post-removed from a Contest probably should be removed. Oh shoot....I'm not sure anymore. (sigh) :)

One of the moderators may have tried to feature the post and it the remove button by mistake! The only reason I know this is I did this by accident once!!

It is just a theory.  Good luck on posting it again!

I'm with Sheri, probably a twitchy moderator finger sealed the fate of that post!

Hi Karen Fiddler, Broker/Owner 

Did you ever find out why the post was removed?

Karen- thank goodness it wasn't my day to moderate a group because I did accidentally (once) remove a post that I was trying to feature.

Karen Fiddler, Broker/Owner - I too had a post removed from the contest group. Don't know why mine was removed and others not.  It hurt my feelings and I immediately withdrew from the group - their loss.   If it was a mistake, as others have pointed out, then a follow-up email should have been immediately sent.

I suspect a moderator hit the wrong button, Karen!  As a moderator of 3 groups, I've done it a couple times myself!

Karen I agree with Myrl, and you will probably be OK the next time you post it.
