Activities are not well synchronized

Hello,

I'm looking at my activities and see that there's allegedly a reply to a question, I answered as well.

However, when going to the question, I don't see any answer from the aforementioned user in the history. There are still only 2 replies.

Regards,

Eli

    It looks like this is the same as what we reported a month ago: [BUG] Q&A+Activity stream: Own answer disappeared, related comment invisible, notification created.

    I think, the same issue was mentioned in a few more questions with tag Using SAP.com.

    Today there is no logic for the right to delete/edit answers/comments.

    Topic author can edit his question and edit/delete/convert his answers/comments at any time.
    User participating in the discussion can edit/delete/convert his answers/comments at any time.
    If somebody delete his answer all comments for this answer by other people will be deleted.

    As a result at any moment the logical structure of the discussion can be destroyed.

    In the old SCN it was a simple rule - only last reply in the chain can be edited/deleted (and for only some period of time).

    In the current community it's close to impossible to implement this rule with the ability to convert comments to answers etc...

    That's why I always propose to go back to "reply" instead of comment/answer.

    Hello Eli,

    I believe the reason for this is that the user who posted the answer deleted the answer. Currently we do not show any message to alert the user that the content has been deleted when accessing deleted content from the Activity Stream. It is something we wish to implement once we have taken care of some more pressing matters regarding the Activity Stream. Regardless, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    Best.

    • @Veselina, I am afraid I cannot speak towards Moderation topics. I have reached out to the relevant SME for more clarity on this matter.

      @Jurgen: thank you for clarifying the matter. You are right, following links to deleted items are leading users to the parent item, which of course is not showing that the content had been deleted. And this is the reason for such confusion.

      On the matter of vanishing items, I am awaiting the results of the investigation as well.
