    Duplicate recipe confusion. What happened to my recipe?

    Recently I posted my very own recipe for Beef Stew or Venison Stew, and when I edited that recipe, it then also became a duplicate recipe, so I asked the mods to delete the one w/o a photo... #491025, and to keep the recipe w/photo... #491053, now a few days later I see even the stew recipe with the photo has also been deleted as well. I 'am confused as to why this was done. I was sent a pm stating... that recipe was a duplicate recipe, but the duplicate was the one recipe I had already asked the mods to delete. I'm thinking there was a miscommunication here, and I'm hoping this can be resolved.

    Here's the pm that I received that explains it all, but it still doesn't make sense, as when I click onto both recipes, I still get the message about one recipe being a duplicate of the other, and still both recipes have been deleted. I do want to make clear, that this recipe is not a copycat recipe nor a duplicate of anyone else's recipe.

    That's strange! I don't know what happened, but I made 491053 visible again.

    Hope that helps!
