Interesting, can put up a new thread here but not in the news section.
Repeated attempts, only came up with duplicate post eventually.
Any clues??April 21, 2017 at 8:07 pm #51744
Not sure about this particular question (or at least the answer to it), but I’ve found the Forum to be acting squirrely in multiple ways lately. Just as I got back on my computer a few minutes ago, I got an email that tells me a new post was put up in the “US drops largest non-nuclear bomb in Afghanistan after Green Beret killed” thread at 3:44 pm by LT, apparently in response to Freedom’s earlier post from this morning. Yet there’s nothing after Freedom’s post except the response I just posted a few minutes ago.
Also, I’ve created responses to several posts over the past week, only to click the “Submit” button and have them evaporate into cyberspace, never to be seen again. That actually has happened when I’ve successfully created and posted a response, notice a typo or decide to make a minor modification, open it back up to edit it, and then try to post the edited version – POOF!
One other issue I’ve got is the fact that they’re using a non-secure web site. I really wish they’d switch to something that provides at least a bit more security (not that anything’s guaranteed on the internet), using an https site. But oh well…. This place seems to be going the way of the Saloon, very sadly.April 21, 2017 at 9:04 pm #51751
WB – I just had it happen again. I added another post above, and it just disappeared altogether. It originally posted properly, but then on purpose I edited it, waited to make sure it showed up on the Forum in its edited fashion, and then went back in and edited it again – and again, POOF! And the “Recent Replies” section over on the right side has also deleted reference to the disappearing post – it’s as if nothing was ever there, even though both the post WAS there, as well as the reference to it in the “Recent Replies” list.

Will keep trying to post it, glad it ain’t just me.April 22, 2017 at 12:24 am #51756
WB, GS, I had a response to Freedom’s post of 04/21/2017 at 1.28 pm, attempted a minor edit for punctuation, et, voilá!, it disappeared. At that time, I had errands to run, so could not stay to recreate from faulty old memory. It also happened once before, but I let it slide, thinking it a one-of-a-kind, or my mistake.

I wrote a second response to Freedom, posted, noticed an error, edited, reposted, only to find that not only did it not register, but that I was bumped back from page 3, to page 1 (!)
Note to self: Get it right the first time — NO EDITS!
