I just posted a reply about cameras on Pub… gone. Backed up… gone. Forward again… gone. Refreshed… it’s not there. Same thing earlier in a reply on cheap flights, except I had about 30 minutes invested in that reply. I’m not new at this Smile. Just a heads-up. Meantime, I’m posting smaller portions, then adding on later via edit.

So just to confirm I understand what is happening. When you post, the post is not showing up at all? It is NOT the case that it shows up, and then disappears later? Correct?

Was there anything out of the ordinary about your replies to those posts at all? Problems that happen totally randomly are obviously the hardest issues for me to track down because I have no way to reproduce the issue. I will look into it and see what I can come up with.

Thanks for letting me know…

Another quick question. Did you get any sort of error after you posted? Anything in an orange box at the top of the page that said something like “SQL error on INSERT …” or anything like that?

Heh, I just realized that I came right back and added that I was using latest versions of Firefox and Opera, and even that didn’t make it onto my first post in this thread! Nothing out of the ordinary that I’m doing—that I recall. I have been seeing lots of orange boxes, but not currently.

It just happened again. The paragraph above “published” on first submit. I came back to add details (this is my second time back to edit this post) and those did not appear. I’m now copying this text to paste into a new reply if it doesn’t let me edit.

I just happened again.

Here’s what I just copied before trying to post:

Yes, lots of orange boxes recently, but not today. The orange boxes did not seem to have any effect on functionality, but once scrolled down, you don’t see them, so maybe they were there when my posts were not, um, posting, and I just didn’t notice.

Also just realized now, 11 hours later, that although I added in my original post top of this thread that I’ve been using latest Firefox and Opera, and I am certain that I previewed it and that text did appear at least in the preview, only now do I realize that update never published.

OMFG what’s going on? 1 reply is missing. My #3 reply in this thread starts with me saying, “Heh, I just realized.” That was #4.

My #4 reply starts with “it just happened again.”

Something’s screwy.

Just happened again. Posted reply about sheets in Hostels and it’s gone. Previous replies from augustin did not show up, but above the first thread there is a note saying 2 replies. I refreshed the page, augustin’s replies re-appeared, but mine still not there. I’ma (yes, I’ma) try (gasp, cough ….) IE tomorrow and see what happens.

we had a little hiccup with the box that the database is on, but that is the only thing i can think of. it would not be a recurring thing if that was the issue unless it somehow affected your account.

let me know if it is still happening. i will try to see if there is anything specific with your account that may cause this behavior…

It’s still intermittent. Seems to happen more evenings, probably 8-midnight. I’m having occasional problems with another website’s forum, too, so maybe it’s my pc. I stay on top of updates using Secunia PSI—don’t know if that’s related to my problem or not.

It’s happening to me too. Replies not going through and it’s also taking a heck of a long time to load… I’m on a T3 university connection so it’s definitely not me…
