Don't panic! Chances are it's just been moved to a more suitable area. New recruits often start new threads in this area. Sometimes that means we have threads continuing for a long time in this forum simply because they were started by someone who at the time had under 50 posts and 90 days, but they would be better suited for other forums, such as the non-Halo costuming area. In an effort to keep things a little more tidy, myself and other staff will from time to time move non-Halo costuming threads etc. to the more appropriate forum where they can happily continue. So don't freak out if you can't find a thread that you started or that you've been following. They aren't being deleted. If you still aren't able to find your thread, please let me know and we'll try to sort that out for you.
