Disappearing posts

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else noticed posts disappearing from the forum?  I have noticed posts disappearing over the last week or 2.  The last time was today.  I wrote a reply to a thread with many long words and nice encouraging comments and gentle explanations only to have it disappear the same day in just a couple hours.  It's not just the posts disappearing.  The total post count at the bottom right of the page for the week will vary up and down also.  So for example, one day your weekly post count says 10 and the next day it says 8.  That ain't sposed ter happen Paw!

I am using Firefox but that shouldn't cause it IMHO.

Anyone else notice this happening?

Yes, I did I have responded on a few topics only have it disappear. I have stopped responding as often as of late on post, gets a tad annoying wording out a post to help someone then Poof. I assumed it was a issue with my stuff just not going through from my end due to rough internet past week but nice to see it might not have been just me.

Glad to see it's not just me.  Seems we have some forum gremlins working overtime!

Ok, this is odd too.  Earlier today I had 6 post for the week.  Now the post count shows I am at 38 posts for the week, just a few hours later.  Several days ago I had 42 posts for the week.

I am also seeing 2 separate listing of this thread's title in the recent topics list.  One topic listing says there are 3 posts in the thread.  The 2nd topic listing says there are 0 posts in the same thread.

There's definitely a problem going on.

Ok, great.  Now it says I am at 5 posts for the week, just a few minutes later.  It was 6 at one point today.

You posted your topic twice and we responded on 1 thread.  That may have been a glitch,  I just hid the duplicate with no responses

You are not crazy!  I noticed that when I attempted to post a few times this morning, or sign on, the forum seemed wacky.  Typing was weird too.   I gave up.

So far, (crossing my fingers) I haven't had any problems. What browser are you all using? I'm on safari. I did see gluten-free's double topic post before Karen hid it. I haven't paid any attention to weekly post counts lately but so far, none of my posts have gone missing.

When I wrote my missing response, I was on my iPhone , using Chrome, as that is really the only way I can post or moderate from the iPhone.  

 

I would think it was all my internet, but slow typing and disappearing  posts happen on different internets, browsers and equipment.  

I suppose others may have answered , but their posts have disappeared?  :o

I use both Firefox and Chrome at different times.  If my original post was duplicated that is also another gotcha by the gremlins, as I didn't post it twice.  Does anyone know what the gremlins like to eat?  Maybe we should round up a collection and buy them some treats so they'll leave us alone. :)

I know they like to eat posts. but maybe there is something else they would take as a substitute.  Maybe old gluteny cinnamon bread we want to dispose of anyway?

Thanks CL, nice to know I am not kuhraazee after all! :)

I'm not giving them my gluten-free banana bread or  gluten-free chocolate mint cupcakes!

the double posting thing happens occasionally.  Has happened to me.

Good for you Karen!  They don't deserve it!

I made sugar free peanut butter fudge a few days ago.  Maybe they'd like that.  Hard to figure their appetites for me.   Here I thot it was only my posts they liked to gobble, but it seems they'll eat a lot of people's posts!

Hmm, I had a gremlin revised count of 37 posts for the week a bit ago.  I have done 4 posts in this topic itself and my post count is now 38 (for now).  That math no addy up to me.

When does a week end and a new count begin?  Or does it roll along as a last 7 days sort of thing?  I have not looked at my post count..... hmmmm

Hi Karen,

I think they usually start over on Sunday, but not sure.  It seems this past week they didn't start over until Wednesday or Thursday.  But now the counts seem to be back to a week ago numbers.

The counts are easy to see at the bottom right side of the main forum view.  Under the online members listing.  As of now, 5:57 am Monday morning. I have 5 posts for the week again.  The numbers seem to go haywire really frequently.

Actually, it seems right now that number is popular contributors.  I think it rotates to post count sometimes though.  Or maybe not.  not sure what it does since it varies so much.  (Head scratching emoji here)

We're working on fixing some issue with a recent update. Any moderator functions that are not working please discuss in the moderator thread. 

The count is a weekly count, and it isn't update instantly. Are posts really disappearing? I don't think any are being deleted, but do let me know if I am wrong.

So do most of you think posts are disappearing because of the "Top Posters" count not being accurate? That count is updated by a cron daily, so it isn't in real time. If you don't see the count go up directly after you post it does not mean your post has disappeared.

Has anyone posted and then seen their post get removed or deleted? If so, is it possible there was an Internet issue? Did you actually see it posted on the forum, and then notice that it was gone?

I don't look at the post count thing.  I just have posted a few times and hit "submit" and it never comes over.  I would think it was my internet except it doesn't happen in other places

Ok, so to clarify, you never saw the post make it to this forum, and then disappear...right? In other words, you submitted it, but it never made it here. 

I am just trying to understand what people are experiencing. Seeing a post show up here, and then later vanish is very different from submitting a post, and never seeing it appear, which is generally an Internet or possible server issue.

People, other than me,  do complain about this in posts - saying they just posted a long response and it never showed up.

Ok, so the issue is that sometimes posts don't appear after they are submitted...and not that they disappear after they have been posted and viewed on the forum. I will report this to the software makers.

Hi Scott,

The counters are somewhat random it seems to me.  One login and they will say 10, next login they will say 8.  Just as an example.  That seems like a problem, but maybe it's not.

Last night I tried to edit a post and the edit box came up but it was blank.  That's not supposed to happen IMHO.  So maybe the edit function has a bug?  I suppose if that's the problem area, it could also affect posting.

The fun never stops right? :) 

****************************************

Hmm, so just now I clicked edit on this post and it did work, and brought up the post for editing.  So I added this nifty comment.  In case you are wondering the stars above and below the comment are what makes it nifty.

I have not had the problem of writing a post & then clicking submit & the post never showing up in the forums however, I have had, in the past ?3? days where I write a post, click submit & nothing happens. I have to click on submit usually 3 times before it actually works. If people are writing posts & click submit but don't watch closely to make sure it actually submits & go zipping off to do another post assuming their previous post will submit then they might think posts are going missing.
