LJ answers my lotr100 question

Well, this is what I expected, and I understand their stand, but I was really hoping there might be a way to get a message forwarded. Unless someone knows how to reach the mod, I am stumped. And sad.

Sorry guys, I tried.


Below is an answer to your support question regarding "mod deleted a community without letting members retrieve their work"
(http://www.livejournal.com/support/see_request.bml?id=345506&).


Communities belong to their maintainers; even though members may write entries, it is ultimately up to the maintainers to decide what the do with the community. This includes deleting the community if they wish, which they appear to have done with the 'lotr100' community. It is not possible to recover entries from a deleted community unless a maintainer chooses to undelete it before the account is purged.

Also, communities cannot be transferred to another user simply because the maintainer has chosen to delete it; if you would like to continue using such a community, then you will have to create a new one (as you indicate has been done). Ordinarily, only a community maintainer can choose a new user to maintain the community.

Finally, support volunteers cannot provide information on the identity of community maintainers due to privacy concerns. Community maintainers may choose to identify themselves in a community entry or in the Community Info, but these are not accessible if the community account is deleted. Even if the community is active but the maintainers choose not to identify themselves, support volunteers cannot do so for you. (For similar reasons, if a maintainer identifies themself by username but does not provide contact details such as an e-mail address, support volunteers cannot disclose that address even if they have access to it.)
