This Forum is broken - Messages and Threads Disappearing

Just noticed this morning that a **LOT** of recent postings and entire threads have suddenly disappeared from this forum.

When I do a search under a specific contributor, under a specific name, the threads are still on Cancer Compass fully intact. It's just that their Subject header does not show up of this list of forum subjects.

Hope they get this fixed, because the current setup is not that useful when the entire thread disappears the next day!

Hello,

Not sure why my post had to be screened before posting, never had that happen before. Please advise further.

Eternalife,

I have discussed this with them in the past. about holding up messages for review until the posting has been reviewed. This can cause a significant delay on weekends. Nevertheless, I think they have stopped doing that, because adequate measures are in place to report inapproprate messages. I haven't had that happen to me in recent weeks.

Sometimes messages and entire threads disappear, but reappear after notifying them.

I have now adopted a habit of always writing my posting on Notebook, and then copying and pasting it to CC, especially with long messages. It saves a lot of work when it disappears on CC.  I don't think CC is doing this intentionally, so much as having a somewhat imperfect website. But when something is going wrong, I usually report is via the 'Feedback' tab at the lower right corner of my screen.

Been there, done that.  Stan I made the same complaint about ten months ago.  Frustrating and upsetting but once you realize its not just you but a problem with the board, you learn to accept it, cause this forum and its members are more important than the few ripples in the pond.

Thanks, Stan.... I have been on the site for a while and it was annoying to see that had happened.

Enjoy the day.
