There are a few things that are happening most likely.

Make sure you are clicking on post after you reply.

2.  When I post a reply adn then go back later to see other replies etc, I often can't find the thread or the replies.  My threads after replying seem to be shoved into the back pages.  So what I have been doing is when I post something, I click on "float this item to the top" and that will keep it visual for you at the top of the board you are on.   Also, to find lost threads on the board they are probably shoved like mine to the back pages, so at the top of the board, sort it by clicking on  " newest to oldest" and then next to that click on 25 posts per page and then click on apply.  That will bring the newest replies and more replies to the forefront.  Only thing is that you'll have to do that each time you reply, but it does help to read things in a logical order and so that you don't miss things.    Hope that helps....

Hi there,

Could you let us know where you were posting?  That way we can check out the topic and make sure we are seeing your replies and they aren't just buried.  If they are buried, there are a few tips we may be able to share to make it a bit easier to view the boards (and twig04 gave you a few good ones too!- thanks twig!).

This happened to me on Tuesday, here is the link to it.  My first reply in the thread, for Tuesday and yesterday it was actually blank, hence my second post saying IV ate my first one, but it reappeared today when I went to check it so I could link it here.  I don't know if it helps at all since its there now, but originally, it was just a blank post with no words, but my siggie still.

Just a reminder as to why some posts may be removed, and there is always an email that lets you know why - be it for profanity, personal information or other reasons.
