Occasional loss of posts on BT ForumBack to Forum
Firstly, thank you so much for so many detailed posts on the forum, and for avoiding unnecessary arguments while still debating your points with respect for one another. It is wonderful to see, and so many of the posts are informative, entertaining, and sometimes moving.
Rather than side track those threads, I just wanted to say that we are continuing to delete spam on the forum, nearly all of which is caught, and so unseen by yourselves.
The down side of that is that some of your posts will be affected since the system will be triggered and put you in the ‘Pending’ column. This will happen if your post has multiple links in it to other websites or has attachments.
I know how frustrating this is, particularly to regular posters, but it happens to us as well. It is very thorough, but if you could see the amount of spam it is catching, you would tink it was working well.
If it happens to you, please rest assured we will release the post as soon as we see it in the ‘Pending’ column.
The other frustration is losing a long post.
This has also happened to all of us at one time or another.
Please, if you are writing a long post, write it into a document on your computer or device first if at all possible.
If you press ‘Submit’ and it doesn’t submit for some reason – slow internet, a fault on our side, or some other interference, then there is very little (ie: nothing) we can do to recover the post because it never made it to us.
Again, thank you for all your contributions during this time.31 May 2020
