Today I made a post and when I went back later to read other replies my post was GONE and there was a new post that was almost exactly word for word what I posted. This is not the first time it's happened.

So somebody is retyping what you posted or something?

I don't know about that, but the post I made is no longer there.

There's no evidence in the forum logs of anyone deleting a post. If your connection times out or if you accidentally hit preview instead of submit, it won't actually take. I've done the accidental preview click myself.

Ok. I'm sure it was posted because after posting I always go to that post and double check spelling, grammar, etc. No big deal, I'll put it down to a one time glitch.

If it happens again I'll let you know, with more info like which thread and time, etc.

The classified forums will auto-purge after a set time. Other than that I don't know what to tell you. I don't have access to a site backup to prove or disprove your claim.

Following up on this since I saw another member claim that a post disappeared. The only explanation I can get from our site owners is that a site backup was implemented due to a server error.
