removing posts for what reason ?

Seriously I had two posts removed today and neither violated any guidelines.I have NO IDEA why they were removed.And if there is no explanation than how would someone know what they did wrong ? It is a really dumb idea to remove posts and not let the person know what they did wrong.

1. Re: removing posts for what reason ?

If your post was a response on an existing thread, a placeholder message should replace your post to give you an idea of why your post was removed.

Posts that you make a title for, which are created using the Ask A Question button, will also be replaced by a placeholder message but then they will disappear after a while. You can send a message to TA staff moderators asking for more information on why the post was removed through the "Submit a case" button in the Help Center. There is a tiny link to the Help Center at the bottom of every TripAdvisor page.

The shortcut to get there is:

www.tripadvisor.com/GeneralSupport > select "Forums, Private Messages..." > select "Help using the forums"

"This post was determined to be inappropriate by the TripAdvisor community and has been removed," means that enough of your fellow TripAdvisor members reported the post as inappropriate via the "Report inappropriate content" link in the post to have it automatically removed. If you are familiar with the forum guidelines and feel you did not break them, you may ask TripAdvisor to reinstate the post using the method that Country_Wife outlined above. Forum guidelines are here:https://www.tripadvisorsupport.com/hc/en-us/articles/200613647-Forum-Guidelines
