Posts that don’t fall within the categories of marketing question, pricing issues, event marketing, and similar type content typically get deleted from this group. Most often, it is due to a baking question being asked in the marketing group. We ask that marketing, sales, and business-related question go to the Sugar Cookie Marketing (Group), and baking-related questions go to the Baking With (Sugar Cookie Marketing) group.
Other reasons posts end up in the trash bin are most likely violating a group rule such as no cursing. On occasion, a post may be deleted because the comment section has taken a wrong turn. To keep the group running smoothly, we delete threads that have the potential to “go to heck in a handbasket.”
If you’re still able to access the group after your post was deleted, you’re good to go! You’re not on a naughty list, and we appreciate your patience with us creating a healthy space for bakers to learn to, well, bake.
If you can no longer search for / find the Marketing Group, odds are you were removed for a rule violation. We take the rules pretty seriously in the “Sugar Cookie Marketing” groups.
