The member Jim Fry stands as latest poster but his post is unvisible.Why? Can the staff hide posts to be unvisible to others? It seems that this forum is a kindergarten to some of the staffs.If it is possible to delete my account here please do it.

Hi! I moved your post to Tinkering, so as not to derail the thread it was in (https://permies.com/t/113765/Heat-Wave-hitting-Southeast).

No forum programming is perfect, and sometimes posts glitch and get delayed for a while. Sometimes, posts are under probation, and the last poster's name will still show up in the recent topics view. Sometimes, posts are deleted, but the author will still show up in the recent topics (you might catch some interesting spammy names that way!)

I took a look at the thread, and I'm seeing Jim's post. Can you see it now, too?

I've emailed our programmers to have them look into this issue and figure out why there might be a delay in posts showing up.

Thanks for reporting the issue!

Several possibilities here:

It could be the post is on probation - in which case, yes, it is invisible to everyone but the poster.

Or it could be the post was removed for not meeting publishing standards (but still shows in the recent topics list)

Or it could be caught in a spam filter (for example, insufficient word to link ratio or whatever it is the computer looks for)

Or it could be the old bug has returned.  There was a bug that seemed to self-repair where a post would get lost in the aether for a while.  Because it didn't happen very often and always self repaired, fixing it was always a low priority.

Or it could be weirdness with today's update.  Today's update returned a few PIE features (green line to show where you last read to, the link takes you automatically to the last post you read, stuff like that).  They've been telling us to keep an eye out for weirdness.  I'll let them know about this. (oh, I see Nicole is ahead of me and has already done it.  Thanks, Nicole)


Is it still an issue or has the post appeared?  Everything looks ticketyboo from my end.

Calling people kindergarteners, could be seen as not nice. But I guess that won't matter once the account is deleted.

Paul talks about deleting stuff here - https://permies.com/t/68634/deleting-stuff



By the way, have you ever tried the Wayback machine?  Magic!  Pure magic!  I needed some research from a defunct site so I plugged in the address and oh wow!  Scary stuff.  Nothing is deletable anymore!

I used to think deleted meant deleted .

My fiance took  picture of us in a compromising position. After showing me the picture and giggling, she promptly erased it from her telephone. Yesterday she told me that she went into something called her Google account, and there was the picture. She erased it again, but who knows if it's really gone. Keep your pants on!

This was a Huawei phone. I don't know if that makes any difference, but that's the company being demonized these days

I think the picture delete behavior has to do with the google connection. One of the "services" google has on most phones is "automatic backup" onto their servers - especially when you're signed in. Which sign-in remains in affect, once it's done, until you manually sign out. I think you can prevent, or at least reduce, this behavior but it takes 30-40 minutes of very carefully going through the phone options and then going through the google account options. There  may be apps installed on the phone which, once they get the sign-on credentials, will sign-on silently every time they come alive. Thus, it's also important to go through all the apps and review their settings and what connections they make in the background.

It's a real pain that I go through once or twice a year. Any new apps I install, I try to very carefully review their settings and permissions. Some apps insist on getting certain permissions in order to install, but after they are installed one can go to the Android "Settings/Apps", open that particular app's properties and "deny" settings which you don't like - and the app will still run, albeit complain occasionally if you ask it to do something it can't reach. I do this routinely, denying access to camera, mic, location, CONTACTS (a big one for me), etc. for those apps which, for my purposes, don't need such stuff. I _never_ allow apps to archive or "sync" with the cloud. And if you use an email app, you pretty much have to be signed in and it can be difficult to find the "sign-OUT" button.

But that's just me and it takes time and there's no guaranty.


Cheers,
Rufus
