bettyblue, thank you for flagging this up. Please be assured your technical issues will be passed on to our website team. I understand your frustration and don't want you to be stressed about this. You are an extremely valuable member of our forum and it would be great if you could reconsider deleting your account.
With best wishes,
how long will it take before its dealt with thought the website team have known about the to many post issue for months.
I have 206 new posts, but looking at the board, there is in fact only 6 new posts in 48 hrs. Just look at the board. ignore the 'new' posts.
The new posts thing seems to cause endless trouble...as sea angler says...so just get rid of it!
I have never used it.
I go to forum, Active posts and then latest post.
Then I backtrack to the last one I read.
I do exactly that too. In fact, until all the recent complaints I had never noticed the new posts bit.
We've come back on this before and I'm sorry that we haven't been able to solve the problem as quickly as you would like to see. And we're also sorry that this is causing so much stress for you. But it will take a bit of time for this to be resolved.
As others have said, there are workarounds to this problem. If you would prefer not to try one of these, we can of course suspend your account as requested and let you know when the problem has been fixed.
Please confirm this is what you want us to do?
It's not just the qty of post it is the disappearing ones that really get to me,why is it taking so long abd can you give me idea of how much longer.
Too many posts spoil the broth anyway!!
Just log in, go to forum then onto active.
You'd be in a right lather if we still used the old system that showed the total of posts by each member.
As Del Boy used to say..........You'd be a millyonnaire by now!
Ssssschuuuusssshhhhh.......you know who!
As for the disappearing posts, it is really difficult to fix this one as there have been various reasons for it over time. The forum issues post gives some tips about the different things you might try to alleviate this problem. Have you read this and tried these fixes?
I can't really tell you when the post count problems will be fixed. We are in the midst of doing major development on the website right now and as much as we would like to have all be perfect with the forum, this issue is a minor one. I'm afraid that development will take priority over the post count issues.
I'm really sorry to hear how frustrated you are about this but we have one team working on all the issues around our website. They must prioritise to ensure that everything gets done.
All that money spent on re-vamping this website seems to have been wasted!
