I came in to take some of the money out due to accounting problems with payments being discounted instead of added to my account, and found the money had been loaned and the question of what to do with my money had been changed to loan, when I had it to stay in my account.
Please revert these transactions made without my authorization. Zidisha was my favorite way to give, but I don't know what is going on with this site anymore.

Is it possible that the amount is automatically relended because it has been in your account for more than 60 days?
You can view the settings on the “Relending preferences” page.
I personally like this setting because if something happens to me the money will still be used to help borrowers.
(Ps I am a lender volunteer and not a staff member. If you want help from a staff member you could use the “contact” link on the bottom of the page.)

This answer was helpful to me too though I am still very unhappy about where the funds were lent in my absence. Some money was given to a person wanting to throw a party to their friend, for example.

uh oh. One way to handle that would be to adjust "Relending Preferences > Which categories would you like to target? " option to select only Education. That way, if you are away for long time, you can ensure that your money does not fund a loan for throwing a party!

Thanks Joshi. I'm surprised that things like that are even allowed to be offered on here so I admit I'm feeling a bit negative about this process now.
I do accept my part - which was that I didn't log in for a while and so it was redistributed in my absence. I will look at my settings.

The auto lending setting is way too aggressive in my opinion. I understand the reason for it, but can't see why it cannot be 6 months, or a notification/reminder sent before it happens. Choosing the loan is a big appeal of this platform, but I'm constantly finding there is no balance to lend when I log in because I miss a month.
