hello! admin of the Crossover Chaos wiki here, and I have a problem.
my wiki will not go over 170 pages, due to pages getting deleted without my permission.
I know i've made more pages then this, but when I try to go to them, they have been deleted, and I have to make the page again.
Can you help me?
Are you absolutely sure you've got the right spelling? Those pages don't exist, have never existed, and have never been deleted. The wiki's deletion log is totally empty. Are you sure you made those pages on this wiki?
There's no reason why these pages would be deleted, and if someone other than local administration were to remove them - like Staff - there would still be traces of it and they would leave a good reason, like ToU violation.
You can ask Staff at Special:Contact. Maybe they can see something. I doubt it, but you'll never know. Be sure to give plenty of examples, and include a rough indication of when you (think) you created those pages.
@Andrewds1021 one of the ones, yes. another being the emerald drekislater page. however, the s.h.i.r.o.y.a.m.a page was made by the other admin, Jesszarosianpon, aka my roleplaying partner for the story. my specific gripes about the page is that i made pages for two characters on the page, aigis and speedy cerviche, and like @Tupka217 said, it's like they never existed.
Is it possible you started working on a page, but never published it or there was an error when you tried to publish it? The deletion logs would show if something was deleted, but you can't delete what wasn't created. There are no pages in the wiki that even start with "Em".

this could very much be possible, and it does make sense. this could very well be the cause. sorry for taking time out of your day for this, fellas.

i do admit i have a slow internet connection, so it is very possible my internet connection could've shorted out while saving the pages that are missing, since that seems more likely?
so i agree, it could be a problem saving the pages that i tried to link.
thank you all for helping me! problem solved! i found that it was my internet connection, and it shorted out while saving pages that were missing from the wiki, so no issues with the site itself. sorry for taking time out of your day, fellas.
What lesson did we learn today? If pages lead to a 404 error but there is no warning saying "This page has been deleted" then it's an error with your internet. if the pages were actually deleted it would have to say "This page has been deleted" otherwise it's just an error with your internet
