This is the response I got:
We meant to move the thread, but yes, it did get deleted.
We appreciate the effort there is to keep building the community in GD, but since you are not an active player in GD, we see that the games you are playing may be detracting some of the GD user's focus away from GD itself.
We have worked with the owner of the Survivor thread in the past, after multiple complaints about it clogging the forums, and have decided that if current GD players wish to play these types of games in the forum, they may, but since you are not playing GD currently, we have decided to move (accidentally delete) your forum thread.
Thank you and we sincerely apologize for the thread getting deleted instead of moved.
So, I have asked if steve or raiders can start the thread (those are the cohosts by the by). If not, we will decide if we want to have it.
