That was odd...

I just got an email notification that one of my friends had posted a topic. It was well written and thoughtful, so I decided to respond. I clicked on the "respond to this discussion" link and was taken to a blank post with no author or anything, so I figured maybe the link wasn't working properly. I went to the poster's profile and the discussion wasn't even listed! I guess it could have been deleted, but I don't see any reason it would have been. I saw nothing in the discussion that was against the rules. Has this happened to anyone else?

I think Mylot is doing some work on the site. A while ago it closed for a minute or so. I just started a discussion and posted a photo with it. After downloading the photo.. my discussion was blank and I had a notice that copy and pasting is only allowed after a rating of 500.?? I didn't copy or paste anything... So the picture loaded fine but I had to retype the discussion. No big deal it was only a couple of sentences. But I think as they are tweaking the site. So we may see all kinds of strange things...That's the only thing I can think of.

I think so too, mari... I just typed out a long reply to someone in another discussion and, when I went to preview it, I lost the whole thing. I was just thrown back to an empty "add a comment to this response" box, not even to the preview screen. Usually, I try to remember to highlight and copy my posts to "hold" them before I either preview or post but, naturally, on a LONG reply, I forgot LOL I guess I'll redo it later....sighhhh

I generally do the same thing when I post a long reply (have been caught out a few too many times! lol) but we can't do that anymore with the new rules...well at least those of us with less than 500 on their rating. It won't let you c+p ANYTHING...which kinda sucks when you lose a long reply and have to retype it all!

I posted a new discussion yesterday and then when it registered a response I tried to go back to it but just got the message "This discussion has been removed because of illegal content or something" (It was a perfectly innocent discussion about cheesecake!)...but then 2 mins later it reappeared! He he...mylot has worms in it's server! There's these weird little glitches everywhere! =)

Hmm... maybe I'll go back and check on it in a few hours to see if it's reappeared.

It must be something in the system that is causing it since you said that it reappeared after a short time had passed. I am sure they would not ban a cheesecake discussion unless it was in bad taste or something.

Well so far I have not had that problem but guess from other's comments there are some glitches.

I haven't got anything to what you have stated and I would be curious myself too. To what I think is that maybe there was a glitch again. I notice that MyLot does do this alot and there's nothing much we can do and just hope for the best.

Did you try just to go to discussions that your friends posted? I meen "Discussions that my friend started". If not I guess it was just a broken link.. MYlot do delete disussions but not that fast..

This has happened to me as well and was wondering the same thing. It has happened to me a few times in the past week or two. I thought that the discussion got deleted by myLot and must have violated the rules. Either that or maybe the website was undergoing changes or was having problems. Would love to know what is causing this if it has not been deleted.

I've seen a few people say that they had posts deleted and one particular post I had responded do that I wanted to check out was gone. I don't understand why. As you said there was nothing against the rules.

I think that when that happens with the blank page, that mylot is having technical diffuculties. But if you went to your friends page and the discussion was not there, then yes I think they probably deleted it. I had this problem with one of my discussions being deleted a while back and I found nothing wrong with what it was about.
