Deleted posts orphans my comments. :`( June 19, 2007 4:06 PM   Subscribe

So I noticed that comments I've made in a posts which are subsequently deleted don't show up in my profile's activity...

Sorry if this has been gone over before, I searched around but didn't find anything addressing this. I know that a while back I could click around in my posting activity and find posts to FPPs which were later deleted without a problem. But recently deleted posts where I commented don't show up in my activity.

Not that this is completely heartbreaking, but I do like to go back and browse through my old comments, even the ones in FPPs which were deleted...

Meanwhile, comments in deleted threads that are favorited do stay put under "Favorited by others".

We've never shown comments in deleted threads in your posting history. Some of the favorites stuff might stick around though.

Huh, strange, because I recall seeing my answers in deleted threads on the blue in my posting history.

Yes you did, Matt. In my old-style comment history, for instance, search for "The General's Report". The comment I posted there (it's three or four FPPs down) will lead to a deleted post.

wfr: I guess Matt isn't coming back. If you want the old style interface, you can use the link I posted up there... just massage it to point to your user number instead of mine. That interface will lead to posts in deleted threads.
