Seems like if she was just taking a break her old posts would still be here. Can someone change their name , erase their CD past and start a new? Would a mod let me know what has happened?
We were missing someone in a different forum and then his brother go on and told us he had died in a motorcycle accident and posted the obit. Ever since that experience I worry when a poster disappears. We seem to get invested in the lives of our CD friends.

In general terms, any or all of the following could have happened:

You might be mis-remembering the person's exact username (upper/lower case, special characters, etc.)

The individual might have requested a username change.

The person's most recent posts are old enough that they have been archived.

A Moderator identified serious TOS violations in some of the person's posts and deleted them.

Also, please recall that while you are understandably concerned about your friend, we also must be mindful of privacy concerns. So even if a Moderator knows what happened, he or she might not be at liberty to share the information with you.

Over $104,000 in prizes was already given out to active posters on our forum and additional giveaways are planned!
