    Not just mine. I've replies to THIS thread 4 times. The post lasts about a day then disappears. I've posted using different browsers, posted, logged out then back in, and several other methods. In all cases the board acted normally, I could view my post even logged out, then sometime between a few hours and a day later my post disappears????? Also, it's not just my post another user whose name I can't recall posted to the same thread. It remaines up for a couple days and has subsequently been deleted. The OP, Waters, posts appear unaffected. What gives? Thanks.

    Thanks, is there any way to check the D-Base history or something? I've seen posts disappear before, but only when somebody p3$$!d off a mod. *poof* like a knock in the night the post was gone!?!? My first 3 consisted of "PM'd".

    Eric maybe could, he's been pretty busy with work and upgrading the servers though.

    Maybe the server issue is it. Pretty wierd though. He hasn't done anything silly like allowing OP's to moderate/del posts in their own threads though, has he?

    Sure is strange. Users can't delete posts and mods aren't supposed to delete posts against users (even when they're p3$$!d off;))

    Eric has been really busy with the backend of GT, and I once had some posts messed up when a database was restored to a point in time prior to when the posts were created. It can happen.

    Good luck Bushflyr
