What happened to my post?

Last night I posted an article about the restaurant in the hotel at which I am staying. I am in Tunisia at present and the wifi is rather inconsistent, with last night being tremendously slow and problematic.

Due to the abysmal quality of the connection, I simply confirmed that the article had been posted and then logged out. This morning the internet seems much healthier and I returned to see what was happening here. Much to my surprise the article no longer exists.

I know that there was nothing derogatory or inappropriate in my article, although I checked my emails anyway to see if a reason had been sent to my address. Needless to say there is no notification of any kind, so I am totally perplexed as t5o what has happened or why.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this recently, or am I simply becoming senile in my old age?

Could be a glitch. You can always repost. Just go to restore cache. But since you have already posted this one the one in the cache will be this post. That post will no longer be visible. There is plenty of fish in the ocean - catch one and post again. emoticon :smile:

I think the article is in the midst of publishing, but not published, and you have logout..

I have had disappearing pictures, but as far as I know, not a whole post. Hope you are having a grand time in Tunisia Barry emoticon :smile:

Yes, I do realise that it is not a major problem, but it did seem a little odd

That is very likely scheng1 because the connection was taking a long time to load the page.

As it turns out Anne, my suggestion of being senile seems to be true because I have found the article in drafts. Of course it may not be age because I was stupid when I was young.

I burst out laughing when I got to the end of your Comment Barry and am only glad I didnĀ“t have a mouth full of coffee at the time emoticon :grin:

I think that the missing post and your senility might be two different issues. emoticon :winking: Hope you find it!

I have actually found the post, it is sat in drafts. You were quite right it was not realted to my senility, just my general stupidity.

Your article may not have been properly posted due to intermittent internet connection. It really happens sometimes.

Somehow I seem to have managed to enter it as a Draft, although I have no idea how that happened.

Noooo! Please do not t of being old in your sixtties. I am NOT going to be old in mine. It sounds very odd,, but it did happen to me once, I think. Maybe the slow connection ate the post or something. I am sure there is quite a lot wandering out in the big wide world of Internet waves or whataever they are.

The beauty of being old is that I can use senility as an excuse instead of having to admit stupidity.
