- I replied here first, on postback it came up without my reply.
- I attempted to post again, but it said duplicate existed
- Posted the same thing, with a minor change and it did the same thing as my first step
- Posted “reply” which worked, attempted to edit it with original text and post disappeared
Not sure if I’m getting caught in some spam filters or what, just thought I’d bring it up…
Also, since redesign, if I edit a post that has markdown, the HTML elements will all be in place for the edit. Posting it again will cause issues unless I delete the HTML and replace with markdown.March 19, 2014 at 5:06 pm #166311AlenParticipant
Looks like the caching issue is back again.
When moving between pages, my view is cached and I have to press refresh to get the latest posts/reply. So that might have been what you experienced, once you tried posting again it detected content as dupe.
Anyways, what you describe, I have experienced many times on this site. It’s been mentioned to me before that posting multiple links in the message body will flag the post for review. But this has been the case for me on and off. Sometimes it works sometimes and I have to wait for moderators.
The site is A LOT FASTER than before tho. But the caching issue is back.March 20, 2014 at 3:50 am #166331

That’s one trigger.
Mentioning ESS EEE OHH (especially the dreaded initials) will automatically flag up the post too.March 20, 2014 at 12:26 pm #166403

I have another thread that it’s doing that to, I think I’ve posted two replies:May 9, 2014 at 10:17 am #169632

I’ve been “losing” more posts lately as well, some of which are still visible to me as much as a half-hour later, but then disappear.
Is there a way to contact a moderator about fixing such things, other than @ mentioning them?May 9, 2014 at 4:34 pm #169676
Is there a list of mods somewhere? I only know you and Paulie_D “for sure.”May 9, 2014 at 10:38 pm #169687
By all means link me into a thread if you have posts disappear.
I can rummage through the various traps to see what’s what.
Unfortunately, I/we don’t get notified when something is trapped so it’s a memory thing for me to check…and sometimes I don’t get to it for a day or so.May 10, 2014 at 7:53 am #169714Chris CoyierKeymaster
Sounds like they could all be related to page caching. Remember to shift-refresh if you think you’re on a page that is doing something funky. But also I’m going to turn it off for the forums and see how performance is. The trouble is, it seems like either performance is OK and there are login/seeing wrong stuff issues, or performance is bad and less issues. :(May 10, 2014 at 10:50 am #169733

Some of it, definitely. But other stuff is spam traps (that’s how I’ve been losing posts —I’ve actually had TheDoc and Paulie_D recover some of them— though because of page caching, some of those I lost for good because I didn’t realize they were missing until too late (I could still see them)).
The biggest probably-cache-related issue I’ve seen lately is the “Freshness” column on the forum page being completely unreliable (on the order of days wrong).June 13, 2014 at 9:29 am #172681
Here’s another post I created a reply to (I mentioned the dreaded three letter word):

Nothing I can see in the filters…I do know that the forum really hates JS sometimes.May 8, 2015 at 8:41 am #201866ShikkedielParticipant
Maybe because the mouse event has s-e-o in it? Had it recently with an easing term (ease-out).
