just wondering...anyone else finding their posts disappearing? i'm not a multi red-star guy with many thousands of posts so i'm not sure whether it's my old macintosh or the mini-islamic department of vise. do all posts need to be nice? i've heard that in iran, if you anger the powerful religious establishment, you and (your family too) risk getting deleted. thank goodness for freedom of speech in the u.s.

i noticed that the "pics of you bike" thread was 11 pages long and is now 4. it reminds me of Ghost where patrick swassie (sp??) slow disappears. Everything reminds me of Ghost though, cause that movie burns itself in to your soul the very first time you watch it. Demi moore is pretty hot though for a boy.

so what gives with the forum software?

in my case, the ghosts were very selective. the little jabs in some of my disappearing posts were weak to say the least, but still seemed to make someone feel inadequate. i have always enjoyed the hammerings delivered to the clubman crowd (of which i am a member). i think needling the MINI-clubman crowd must have crossed some line.

p.s. demi was so beautiful in "ghost" .
p.p.s if neapolean could only have ridden a pony instead of a real horse, i think things would be very different in europe today.

Are we really losing posts? The pages of posts changed because I changed the number of items on a page by request, so they're all still there, just more scrolling instead of clicking. As far as deleting because of content...never done it and don't want to start now. The last thing I want to be is the pc police.

There's auditing built-in to the forums software - if a post was edited, you should be able to track that.

JD - you ought to look into moving the db out of it's current format and into something a little more scalable and reliable. I'm pretty sure there's a DB migration tool from your current format - I'll look into it.

hello gents........ perhaps you haven't realized that the reason the 'show your bike' thread reduced from 11 to 4 pages is each page now has many more replies on it.........

went from 20 to like 50?

less clicking and more of a thread on a single page

so perhaps your posts really haven't disappeared?

No, I've seen it too, tho not my posts. An individual post gets replaced with a "." or something like that - makes the thread look funny.
