Ask a gran

Help me - I've 'hidden' a discussion in error.

This evening I started a thread in Ask a Gran called 'What would you do' It was about whether or not to buy an engagement present.

Whilst looking at it on my Kindle trying to figure out how to ask GN HQ how to have the OP deleted, I saw 'Hide this Discussion'. Before I knew it I'd clicked on this and of course have hidden the discussion - but likely only hidden from myself.

Is there a way to undo my click to hide it.
Can I reinstate it on my own system, until I manage to contact GN HQ,

Oh I am stupid !!

Oh, I've just seen 'Report' up in the pink banner. If I could un-hide my other thread I guess I could use this 'Report' to ask GN to delete for me.

Erm, I think that is what I suggested you do?smile

phoenix I can't see my other 'What Would You Do' thread as I've very stupidly 'hidden the discussion' in error. Can't see what other members have been posting.
Guess I was too quick with my clicking finger before my brain was in gear.

So I've used this thread to do a 'Report' and asked GN to delete my other 'What Would You Do' thread.

I can still see the original thread coolgran ...

Yes grannyknot I believe I've only hidden it from myself. And didn't know how to undo it.

Hi Coolgran, I've reported it for you with a link to this thread.

Don't worry, I'm sure it will soon be sorted!

My other thread has now been deleted. Thank you GN HQ for your speedy action.
It has taught me that in future to be more careful about how much detail is given.
