☾ Dαɴιyα ☽ (danija) | 13 comments Can someone please answer me why this short story was removed from Goodreads database, can the book page be restored or does it have to added again?

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 7181 comments NON-BOOK ITEMS
The following is a list of items that should not be added to the database:

* Magazines
* Zines
* Individual comics (unless they have an ISBN or ASIN (Kindle only))
* Shorts:
***Short stories only published in an anthology or magazine
***Deleted scenes
***Extras only published at the back of a specific book edition
***Stories only available via subscription to a newsletter, or via a website that requires registration
***Incomplete and in progress works (this is different from "forthcoming" works, which are considered completed but as yet unpublished)

Shorts are retained in some cases. Shorts that belong are those that are:
* Published separately
* Published online as a specified short story (i.e. not a 'bonus')
* Complete flash fiction

Please note that items that do not meet Goodreads policies for inclusion in the database may be deleted without warning.
