I found it and deleted it for you.

Could anybody reporting posts they wish deleted please let us know the thread it is in. I was only able to find the post because I had seen it earlier and was wondering if you were going to add to the quote you had made from another post. I was glad to see you had added that it needed deleting to the actual post at the bottom as an edit, and would request others do the same. It avoids us deleting something by mistake.

We are always happy to help.

Thanks for that - I will be sure to let you know which thread it is in if it happens again.

I had actually added a major diatribe to the quote, saved, and none of it was there when I did, just the original quote.  The 2nd post I put there was all that I remembered from my epic first post :)

Does seem to be a problem that's happening with some posts that include quotes from other posts at the moment. The same thing happened to cbatcu the other day when she tried quoting a post and commenting - only the quote appeared.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Am getting the quote problem often. It is incredibly frustrating to type a reply to find all you have is an empty box, at times I just give up.

He told us not to get overwhelmed by grief and whatever thoughts we have... to keep them happy, because any thoughts we have of him will travel to him wherever he is. (John Lennon - 27/8/67)

So that's what it was - I was thinking it was some sort of subtle White Album kind of post :)

I can't delete posts either, but I don't necessarily need one deleted.

Anyone having the issue of when you click on the "x topics with unread posts" and get the pop-up list it keeps jumping up to the top so you cant scroll down and click on unread topics?

 

BTW, I found a workaround for this. If you right click (or on a Mac, ctrl+click) on the arrow, it'll still jump to the top, but now you'll have a menu to open the link in a new tab.

FYI, Joe, the RSS is working properly again - I see actual thread titles now.

Great! I'd like to say I fixed it, but frankly I haven't a clue. There was some compression stuff that was done to make things load a bit faster, but I don't think that would have affected this. Never mind.

Please delete my last post in the impossible to derail thread. I wrote "please delete" in it. Thanks.

Did it come up blank again, cbatcu? Have you re-posted what you were going to say?

Oh and I've deleted the post for you apple01

Thank you.

I decided at the last minute to move the post to the LOLs thread. It was the pictures of the cupcakes. I tried to catch it before it actually saved the post, but the computer was faster than me.
