I think this is how it works…

in the past… if you deleted an item it would only get deleted after 30 days but it still shows up in your portfolio and can be seen for 30 days by everyone

Now if you delete an item, it is removed from your portfolio and not visible to non-buyers… and it is shown in your in hidden tab for 30 days and can only be viewed by the author and buyers of the file… then after 30 days it is removed…
Hidden files arnt removed after 30 days, i’ve got a few files that must be 50 – 60 days old now and they are still in the hidden :p
yeh but did u delete them? or have they been disabled by staff because of a bug? I doubt that if you delete an item it will stay in your hidden tab forever
Deleted manually of course.. Trust me they don’t get deleted from your hidden tab unless you contact support maybe ;)
Yeah I deleted a couple of files a few months ago and they are still there in the hidden tab.

And I think because customers that bought the item should still be able to dl it.
Actually, it may be nice to automatically send a message to people that bought the file before it’s permanently deleted.

I’ve been having a similar issue. One of my first items was rejected, and I opted to just remove it. I went in and deleted it, but it still remains in my Hidden section. I’ve gone in and deleted it a couple times but it just remains there.

How do they get back? And how people do that they are on the main page when an update is made?

In the past, when you chose to delete one of your items it would remain visible on the site for 30 days. When they made the change, it was supposed to remove it from the public view immediately, and I believe remain in your hidden tab for 30 days. I’m thinking there is a glitch of sorts that’s causing it to never be removed from hidden. I’ll pass it along to the devs.
