How does it do that?

When I look in "Active", a thread has disappeared, but if I go to "I'm on", there it is??!!??

It happens to me, too, Phoenix, but now I know what to do I don't worry!

I wonder if it briefly disappears when they are fiddling with/editing etc?

I used to think that, phoenix, but it seems to be random. Sometimes threads disappear for a few minutes, sometimes longer, but they come back eventually!

We will stop hiding them under cushions - honest. And we will take a look

I take the 'active' threads to be those that have the post recent posts.
I wouldn't necessarily expect to find topics I've posted on to be amongst the most recently active.
The 'active' ones will change and threads will re-appear if someone searches for one further down the chain and then adds a new post to it.
That's my understanding, but I may well be wrong grin

NannaAnna, sometimes it happens with threads that have had a post only a minute ago!

Anne58 Wed 03-Oct-12 22:44:01

Or indeed one that was only started a moment ago!

Aah. Well that blows my theory then grin

Hi folks,

Yes, we've had some trouble with threads disappearing from Active.

We hope that Tech will be able to fix it soon - in the meantime, threads still seem to come up on Last Hour, Last Day etc, so you should still be able to find them there.

Here is what we believe may be happening behind the scenes, in cat form:

Anyone know where we can get a bigger box? grin

Can anybody join that media24.tumblr and get those good moving pics?
