Aaa wish I'd seen this earlier! Guess the someone who scouted you before lost their privileges.
Lol, yeah it was a little strange. I wonder how long it was like that. I'd figure once you get scouted, it's forever unless you're banned.
Well the whole scouting system works a bit like a tree, where everyone is like a part of a branch, of a branch, of a branch... if a part of the branch gets cut off then all parts of THAT branch are affected too. So, say: the one who scouted you scouted someone else who gets unscouted, for whatever reason, they might get unscouted too, and if so: you'll be unscouted with them. It's a real chain of responsibility.
Not sure how often everyone gets affected though. They seem to make exceptions for some, and just remove user's scouting abilities instead of unscouting them (and thus everyone on that branch). It's a bit like when a user requests their posts deleted, and all people who posted in their threads gets those posts deleted too... everyone's affected by everything here. XD
Anyway long elaboration. Hope it clarifies.
I hate when you lose the scouting based on someone else leaving or losing it. I think that system is a bit flawed and you should only lose it when you break rules.
