Weird Post Count

Hi all,

I was away from TA for a while, so apologies if this was discussed before - I only quickly browsed few latest pages.

This weird thing has happened to me a couple of times - when I post a reply, my post count doesn't change immediately, i.e. the new post appears with the same post count as it was before I posted it. Made me wonder if any of my earlier posts were removed, but then shortly after the post count duly increases.

Anyone else noticed this?

Not that it bothers me or is in any way important, but I wonder if this is not, by any chance, an indication of some bigger glitch..

Just to clarify, this doesn't happen each time. Say, with 15 replies I posted today so far, it only happened twice.

I think there are a few glitches in the sysrtem at present.

The other day on the UK forum, we had a poster who reported that although he "proper" review count was showing, half her reviews had disappeared, later in the day they miraculously re appeared.

This incident was linked to some of the places that she had reviewed, all of wich their reviews had disappeared eg the Olympic Stadium which had 100+ reviews, suddenly had 0, these again miraculously appeared again, later in the day!!

I have noticed that closed threads were not being marked as such, immediately, yesterday...

Lots of "little" things, so venture a guess that the team are working on some changes, again......

I have noticed that when posts are removed the post count often lags behind showing more posts than can actually be seen.
