That is a known problem. TA is looking in to it, but it seems to be taking a long time.
Patong is supposed to be a subforum from Phuket, just as Kamala, Kata, Karon, etc., but at the moment it is not, which means that postings for Patong don't show on Phuket (and postings for Kata etc. don't show on Patong).
I would recommend not to post in the Patong forum for the moment.
