    Missing posts?

    I'm not exactly sure when or what posts, but I just realized my post count has dropped by somewhere between 50-60 posts.

    Back in Nov or Dec I broke a thousand posts, now I just realized I'm down to around 950.

    Any idea what caused the sudden drop?

    I've recently had the same experience, but I've published some complete rubbish. If it's only that rubbish they've deleted, I'm happy.

    Re: Missing posts?

    I have noticed recently that I will post something and then it's not there. In fact, just today that happened. After I didn't see my post I posted something else. Then I saw the first one. (Thankfully, they were not the same.)+

    I honestly don't know- we haven't been deleting stuff beyond the odd troublesome thread and certainly haven't been targeting you. I will try to find out.

    That's your browser- it is showing older versions of the page. If you refresh/reload a page it should show you the updated page.

    Re: Missing posts?

    By my calculations, about 2,3i7 of my posts have been deleted. Could I have them back, please? (The fact that this number of posts would make me a VIP member has nothing to do with my plea for justice.)

    I've alerted Adam as this is beyond me. It is possibly something to do with how the total is calculated- we haven't deleted 2317 of your posts.
