I have been accused of breaking community guidelines in an answer.  When I try the link to appeal it will not open.  What is wrong?

    This is the link for appeal. Use Contact Specialist.

    I see you commented that your email was dated from March of 2019, in which case the appeal window of 7 days is long over, so you might as well let it go. However, the link in your BA is one you should bookmark, so if you realize a question or answer of yours has been removed, and you feel they were not violations, you may appeal that way (you have 7 days from content removal to in which to appeal).

    You got notified about a deletion?  That's pretty unique.

    If it was dated march 19th, the link expired.

    If you remember the exact text you can still appeal. On the page of the question-feed, in the lower left corner click "about", then "about", "FAQ", "appeal"

    That you got a report notice email is pretty amazing. Yahoo stopped sending out those emails except very randomly 20 months or more  ago. That appeal hyperlink does not open the appeal page more than 50% or the time became normal in 2015. The person who answered first is probably right. Check the date of the email. It's probably over a year old or more, long past the 7 day appeal period. That is why the hyperlink does not work. 

    Hyperlink to the Yahoo Help page:


  • Questions over 7 days old can not be appealed.  I have no seen an email in over a year and have not heard from anyone who has.   A few years ago we were receiving old appeal notices but nothing recent.

    I would try just for the hell of it to appeal using the help menu and see if they will review it.

    I take it you received an email telling you your question has been reported and removed as a violation? This is something that most people do not get anymore. If you did receive an email how old is the email. If more than 7 days you can not appeal...
