The mystery of disappearing posts?

Post by FrenchForumSurvivor »

It's been said before, but it's worth repeating with a photographic example (showing what happened when I replied to a post): often when you are typing a reply to a topic, someone else is doing the same thing at the same time. If, in that case, you click Submit and then immediately go to, say, Active topics without checking that your post has been added, your reply will not be submitted and will therefore be lost.

What you need to do is click Submit and then wait to see what happens; if someone else has added a reply while you were typing, you will see something similar to the below.

You can then either edit your post accordingly and/or click on Submit again, to be sure that your reply is submitted.

Not a chance. 8-)
A badly run democracy is now no better than a badly run communist or socialist state.
