Simon, if you read this can you post again, not sure what is going on but will look for your Alibre question. Or just ask it again in this thread

Curiouser and curiouser ... According to the list; Simon posted something here: **LINK** at 16:40:34 today

But nothing since Neil's post of 2017 is visible.

^^^ I also see (or do not) the same phantom posting, even after a refresh.

When I went to the Admin section there were three posts by Simon.

The one above and two shorter versions where he was obviously trying to post but they were not showing up as none had been approved.

I deleted the two shorter ones but the thread created by them is this one.

I then moved Simons fuller post from The thread Michael links to here hence it has the date/time Michael quotes

Have not seen one about Alibre though there is a slight chance a fellow moderator may have deleted it in error as the delete and approve tabs are close together and we don't get a "are you sure...." when a first post is deleted.


The "latest posts" list shows "moved" activity for a while, not sure of exact time maybe hourly correction. Same applies to removed adverts that is wht you may still see them listed but when clicked get a message about not available or being moderated when infact they have been deleted by a Mod.

That would suggest one of the mods has had to be busy tidying up... again.


Ah - crossed post with Jason.

First time posters often re-post their messages when they don't appear due to waiting for moderation. We generally delete duplicates.
