Every time I type a post and press the 'post' button the thread disappears!

Have I got a Magic Finger?
Or has GNHQ got a new algorithm?

What is going on?

Testing

Worked for me.
I don't know what's happening. Strange.

Callistemon Tue 18-Aug-20 22:26:48

It's still here, hurray

But I'd like to know why so many threads are being deleted

some posters are on the Banned List tonight

BlueBelle Tue 18-Aug-20 22:28:23

How do we know if we re on a banned list banned for what and for how long ???

Lara has a thread about troll hunting and thread deletions, so I assume that anything that has vanished contained a post (or several) about dodgy posters.

Callistemon Tue 18-Aug-20 22:33:39

I was just going to open yet another thread and it's gone.

Is someone at GNQ rather trigger happy?
Could we have an explanation please?

Elegran Tue 18-Aug-20 22:34:09

Bluebelle If you are banned you will have recived a PM to tell you so. As you seem to be able to post, you must be OK.

Callistemon not the same problem with posting as you but, from when I hit "post" it seems to be taking ages for the post to actually upload.
As for banned list..... No idea.

Madness comes to mind

i thought that is a forbidden word. the five-letter one.
so all this might get deleted, ....

Callistemon Tue 18-Aug-20 23:00:54

Oh dear.
Not another one

Randomactsofpurple Wed 19-Aug-20 02:24:39

Well I’ll jump in and test it too

Here goes........

Elegran Wed 19-Aug-20 08:36:03

I was just quoting Lara. Will her post be deleted?

Callistemon Wed 19-Aug-20 11:10:32

Don't mention the 't' word

Even if you're reading a story to the DGC!

Does it matter which sort of device you use Callistemon? I use a laptop and I have to press 'Ctrl' and the 'Return' key to post, unless I put a picture on, in which case I press 'Send' which does take an age, I assume because it takes longer to load. I'm not good with that other 'T' word, technology.
Am I missing the point?

I think that, as I tried to post, the thread disappeared and there was my post - gone!!
