Was my FPP just deleted before it even posted, or is there some kind of queue now of which I'm not aware? I'm not complaining per se, but I'm kinda having a WTF? moment.

The power of Greasemonkey reveals that it was deleted because it was a double. Or something.

I saw it as posted, btw.

Well, hell that's fair enough. I did a search and only found the original post from dead_. That's some damn good sharp shootin' there cortex.

Now considering, thanks Effigy2000, that I don't have a greasemonkey that I can speak of here, shouldn't something like this show up in "recent activity" so that I don't have WTF? moments?

Nit-picking, I know.

It does take a few minutes for posts to show up on the front page, though.

If you don't want to install greasemonkey there is a favelet version of the view deleted posts script. Or you an use LoFi. Or you could save the link to your post and just refresh it. There are many solutions here already.

It was a pretty fast kill because I was reading the recent thread in another window when I saw that.

Not that this is a great general solution, but having posted a comment in your own thread will guarantee that it shows up in Recent Activity even after it gets nuked.
