    Missing Posts - Am I Going Crazy?

    Have you ever posted a comment and you know you posted it and it's not there when you go searching for it?

    I have made several posts this morning and can't find some of them. I tried going to my profile and looking at lastest posts and they are not there. Not only that, every time I go to the lastest post list, they are in a different order. Shouldn't it be in sequence for when I post to it?

    These were no comments that would be against board rules plus I did not get a message about it being deleted.

    Any one else experience anything like this?

    I've had that issue every once in a while. Figure it's my browser most times. Sometimes my browser and qb just don't want to play nicely together. Sometimes if it's a really important (to me) comment, I'll re-post. Other times if I'm just repeating what others have said, I just let it go. Depends on my mood. Frustrating nonetheless.

    Thank you - I'm not alone! I'm trying this in Chrome right now and it's still the same. It's not just one post - it's several!

    My main post shows up in latest posts, but the comment right above this one does not. And I have noticed on posts that I have started in the past that it will show all the posts that I have made in the Profile - show lastest posts. I wonder if we have gremlins at work!

    The order of your posts and threads can change positions in your profile just like the regular board if someone adds a comment at a later date. It doesn't usually happens too often though. Doesn't it drive you crazy when a thread is pulled and it just disappears? I wish that would leave the thread title, delete the content and just slap a label on it!

    "Doesn't it drive you crazy when a thread is pulled and it just disappears? I wish that would leave the thread title, delete the content and just slap a label on it!" I agree!

    And these posts are still not showing up in lastest posts, just the main post. And I'm not in the wrong spot because the other posts that I have made to other members threads are there - well, not all of them!

    If a post is moved you should get a PM. not sure about the order of them changing though. may be a browser thing!

    Sometimes posts get moved to a different category. I've come across something and thought, "Wait, I read that before!" and realized it got moved from main to general chit chat or something.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today.

    Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything, but you still can't help but chuckle when you see one tumble down the stairs.

    I see seven posts from you starting at 4:59 am (Bearding on a quilt) then 5:11 (old thread) 5:27 (dear husband's quilt) 7:36 (crushed velvet) 8:05 (Walmart score) 8:10 (homework time) and 8:11 (pillowcases for granddaughter). Does that help?

    Thanks for trying to help. DH figured out one of the problems. For some reason we are having to click more than once, on a lot of things. He's smart, he will figure out the problem.

    But, some of the posts that I made did not show at first but later on, like an hour later, they showed up in the Find Latest Posts. A lot of times I will make a comment/post so I can go back later, like if someone asks a question that I want to know the answer to also. Oh well, the mysteries of cyberspace!

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

    Sometimes QB moves them to a more "appropriate" section of the board. Other times things that I think are innocent are removed because QB disagrees with me. Either way, I get a PM telling me of the move/deletion.

    Sometimes you have to refresh the screen to see your latest posts. With google, the refresh icon is right next to the url address box.
