Re: Comments on: Technical Issues

This may just be a problem with my computer, but I thought I'd flag it up anyway. One of the posts I submitted yesterday has completely disappeared from the thread it was in, but I haven't received any owls about it so I can't work out what might have happened. Help!

Re: Comments on: Technical Issues

I don't know what would cause this, and it will probably be some Very Obvious Thing To Figure Out Myself, but here goes... I was looking at some of my threads and wanted to update them. Problem is, there was no way to do this, because, despite the fact that I was signed in and all (I accessed the thread through my subscriptions), it said I could not reply, could not post, all that good stuff. There was not even a field to do it. But the thread was not locked. Mysterious...

Re: Comments on: Technical Issues

Which forum was it in?? Because in some, like The Daily Prophet, and non-Feedback threads in F&B, only the person who created the thread, or a mod can reply in it. That's the only thing I can think of. If it was somewhere besides that, I'm out.

Re: Comments on: Technical Issues

Some threads are now read-only in the archives. It's possible that the thread in question was one of those threads.
Regarding the issue in post 23, I'm not that technically inclined, so I'm not the one to help here, sorry .

The post was submitted to Legilimency Studies in The Stone at about 6pm yesterday. I'm pretty sure I saw the finished post as part of the thread once I'd typed it, but I looked again this morning and it was gone. Mysterious...

One of your posts was deleted by staff. You can owl any member of staff to ask why, I'd rather not discuss private matters in a public area.

Sometimes I can't put smileys in my posts. The smiley box isn't even there!

What's happening?

Make sure you don't have the "disable smilies in text" option checked. As for the smily box, I'm not really sure what would cause that not to show up, unless you have a pop-up blocker that might be preventing it from showing up when you hit the "more" link.

That must be it -- because I can still read it, but not reply to it. It was *sniffle* such a good thread, too....

Don't complain! At least your thread's still there for you and other people to read. One of mine - my most successful one too! - got deleted, I can't even go back and read the good parts.

The subject did get picked up again, but it's not the same thing.

I think that you will find that everyone gets threads deleted now and then the Mods here are very good at keeping the Boards from getting cluttered up with duplicate threads . Sometimes in the past when there was a book release the mods pruned the boards to keep the server from bogging down .
I hope that helped ?

Maybe it's time to get back on topic now.

So, technical questions anyone?

You might also be posting in Quick Reply, rather than the Advanced Post.

It seems to me that even in Quick Reply you can post smilies. The smilie board might not be there, but you can still make a smilie appear by typing its name in between colons. Or a semi-colon and a close parenthesis for "wink", a colon and a close parenthesis for "smile", etc.

You got me curious, let me try a quick reply after I post this. It will appear just under this, not in a separate post, but this is where my Advanced Post ends.

Testing smilies in Quick Reply:

Second quick reply: It worked!

That happened to me too. Sometimes it happens because you're off-topic or have used some strong words. Sometimes it happens for no reason I, a lowly second-year, can figure out. There is no warning by owl in those cases, I believe.

There's no warning when a whole thread that you started is deleted either, for that matter.

Re: Comments on: Technical Issues

I remember there being a question about why the time is always off. But I don't remember if it was answered. I think it's about 10 minutes off now. It's been getting progessively more off lately. Just thought I would put that out there.

Same here. At least it's easier to figure out what time it's supposed to be when it's 10 off rather than 7.

I have noticed this too its about 11 minutes behind for me now and it seems to be getting longer every week .
