If someone deletes a thread, is there any way to get the stuff back that was on the thread before it disappeared?

If it's your material, the thread shouldn't have been deleted in the first place and needs to be restored. If it was someone else's material, you can always PM them and ask.

I posted up a character I really liked in the thread and would have at least liked to save it before it got erased.  This isn't the first time this has happened.

elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=148366.0 is the thread if there's anything to be done.

Aye, I found it and restored it. If it happens to you, please report it - no one else has the right to delete your posts, even if the software allows them to do so because they started the thread.

Sure. If the user has any questions, feel free to point them at their friendly neighborhood staffer. :)

We don't do that, Lady Temptress, sorry. Relevant quote below:

While the forum software does allow for it, policy does not. :)
