    Disappearing duplicate thread

    I just had an odd experience. I wrote a reply to a thread identical to this one, posted it, and then thought of something I wanted to add to it. I followed the link from the forum index, but my new post didn't appear in the thread. Puzzled, I returned to the forum index. Now I noticed that the thread title appeared twice. Clicking the second entry took me to my post, which I edited and saved.

    Now when I refresh the Ask a Teacher forum, the thread appears only once, and my reply has disappeared.
    I am not a teacher.

    I closed one of them after Piscean pointed out the duplication.

    I have reopened it to see if you can find your missing post.

    Re: Disappearing duplicate thread

    I pointed out the duplicate thread after reading the first post here.
