Hello Professor Braunschweig,

I recently had a page deleted by a moderator while I was working on it. I disagreed with the deletion and today I found that you had replied to me. You informed me that you moved my page under my username. The problem that I still have is that the page was full of content and almost complete prior to the moderator deletion. Is there any way to recover all the information and work that I already had on the page? For now the page is blank except for the "Hans Feizi" at the top.--Mcwhitmire (discusscontribs) 13:42, 28 April 2021 (UTC)

@Mcwhitmire: I checked yesterday and again this morning. There is no saved content beyond what is already visible in page history. See [1]. Nothing was deleted. What I suspect happened is that the moderator added the Delete tag. When you went to save your contribution, you saw the page had changed, but did not commit your changes to overwrite that message. Since you never actually saved your changes, there is nowhere we can recover them from.
Please ask your instructor to remind students to use the Creating a New Page section at The Ancient World (HUM 124 - UNC Asheville) when starting new content. Pages created under course projects are generally left alone. Pages created in main space with very little content (as you had yesterday) are treated as test pages or vandalism and may be removed before you make progress on them.
Also, in general, never trust online computer systems to save your important work. Always keep a local copy, just in case. If you'd like, you can have your instructor contact me to confirm that there was an issue with you saving your content. Perhaps an extension can be granted to give you more time to meet course requirements. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 14:10, 28 April 2021 (UTC)
