I lost my rank 18 character last night at around 11 PM est, lost my 150k apartment, four heavily customized vehicles, lost all my clothes, makeup and hairstyles, weapons and stats. This is a poll to generalize just how many people's characters have been deleted. Overall I've had my character deleted a total of four times.
At least Rockstar is being open about the issues and they're working to fix it, but it's still incredibly frustrating.

I've had three characters deleted so far, two I created around launch time, and a third from Friday, was about rank 7 and had sunk a vast amount of time into her on the day, not quite as much as yours but still enough.

Nope, rank 23, same character since launch day.

Mine got deleted yesterday. This is the first for me. But then again I couldn't get online until Friday night. And I was trying since launch.
Made a little video for R*

Still have my character, but I've barely used it. I think I've logged maybe 45 minutes total online?

The first character that i ended up making after online launched was deleted when i was around rank 5 or 6. Right now I have another character that's rank 11 or something but for all I know that one could be deleted now too. I'm just not taking any chances with the online here until all of this crap gets sorted out. Honestly, I haven't really been playing GTAO much, I've been way way too busy getting my university work finished to play much Xbox lol. So i'm hoping that when I finally do end up having time these problems won't be so bad.

Not since the PS3 patch.

Yes. Initially a couple of times during the first few days. In tempted to stay offline until I'm 100% this one isn't deleted and everything is fixed.

Made my character the very first day, couldn't play (any ferther than the intro clip) until 4 days later but I've never lost my character or car. I got the option to change my character at a certain point (not sure why) but other than the small changes I made then my character stayed the same.

Deleted 3 times. The one time it didn't, i'm missing money and stats.

If you log in to the social club website, you can see the latest that the servers have for your character on the game stats screen. That's how I found out I lost 4 hours of work last night.

Played for about 3 hours last night. Seemed to run smoothly enough - game invites were working well.

New post from the in-game Rockstar Newswire:
PREVENT CHARACTER LOSS
If you have an existing character but see an empty character slot in the selection screen, back out to Story Mode and re-enter GTA Online through the pause menu. Do not create a new character in the empty slot.
If 'The Rockstar Cloud Servers Are Unavailable", do not create a temporary character. Do not press 'Retry'. Instead, back out to Story Mode and try again.
We are working on a permanent fix for these issues.

Dude I've been tempted to make a new character all day =P
