Posted:I have this problem too. The weird thing is that the forum seems to have accepted it, but isn't showing it. For instance, I posted several replies (a couple of misclicks, oops), to the thread about sectioned staffs, and none of them have appeared. But, the post count for the thread is 17 or something, and there aren't that many posts visible. So, it seems to have counted my posts but not displayed them :-( Ah well, hopefully it'll fix itself up. Sometimes they appear in a couple of days.x

the memories fire, the rhythm falls slow....

Posted:It may be because when you look at the page where your message should be, your browser is loading the page from the cache. Click reload/refresh and it should appear.------------------Well my thinking is this: if it's empty, fill it with cream

Posted:Sometimes that happens to me as well. Most of the time it posts instantly, sometimes it takes a while. That's why some people post double posts because they think it got lost in the matrix, and sometimes it does.

Posted:OK here are 2 likely possiblities.1) The computer you are using has cached the page (stored it in memory) for faster access next time. Clicking refresh should fix this. If you clear the cache make sure youi close the page you are looking at, otherwise it will not be deleted. Press "CTRL' and "refresh" on IE will force a new page to come through the ISP2) Your ISP (internet service provide) has cached the page so they do not pay for bandwidth the next time someone views that same page. They should actually be checking for new updates for that page before giving up a cached copy, however not all ISP's are equal and some could cache the page and not update it for 1 - 3 days. Not much you can do about this except complain to your ISP.
