Did something happen overnight?

Post by Paul-R »

I thought I made a post yesterday evening but it wasn't there this morning. Was there a restore from a backup overnight? Or was it all my own fault and I closed the window down instead of posting the comment!

No maintenance was done in the past 24 hours and no known issues (well maybe an occasional problem with post notifications, but that has been happening occasionally for ages).

I read that post last night too.
Remember it well as was curious, never heard that before.

Which forum and topic were the post in? What time was it made?

It was the thread Lights! (Interesting and Awful please). I remade roughly the same post this morning and it's at the top of this page.

This is the one from last night, read it last night and it’s there now, in addition to the one added this morning.

What happened to the old "must be able to put a (pre-decimal) penny on without overhanging"?

That is bit bizzare, at the time when the post was apparrently missing, was there a later post shown on the same page where the missing post should have been (just trying to eliminate a pagination issue).

OK, it must have been me. Can one of the Mods delete the, now superfluous, second post please?

And don't say all my posts are superfluous...

You do have the power to delete it yourself.

Because there have been other posts made since, so you can't delete it. We can just leave it as is unless really essential as it might muck up the thread now.
