Submitted review was pending and now has disappeared...

I submitted my first review a week ago, and it was pending approval until today—when it completely vanished. I received no "rejected" notice or other information. What happened?

Under contributions, I see: "You haven't contributed any reviews yet... but we hope you will!"

I'm wary of writing reviews in the future if the effort will be in vain...

Here are the guidelines for traveler reviews. Nobody on the forum can tell you why it was rejected since we can't read a rejected review, but you can review the guidelines to try to figure out why.

You can also post your comments here on the forum and maybe someone can figure out why the review was rejected. I think a common reason would be if you are an owner or manager of a business and you are trying to more of a commercial solicitation than a review from a traveler/ customer.

If that's not the case and you did not include profanity or any of the other prohibited guidelines I am at a loss to explain your rejection.

I've been a TA member for a long time and I do not believe TA works with any companies to keep bad reviews off the site.
