Hello all,

I am the new archivist (since last June) working at Meirionnydd Archives in Dolgellau.

I joined the forum yesterday to ask about a collection I am cataloguing at Meirionnydd Archives but my post to the North Wales forum has not appeared. Does it have to be approved by someone? If so, when can I expect this to happen?

Many thanks.

Anna

Hi Anna

I think you maybe did something wrong or maybe a server glitch. If it does that use the back button to try again.

Welcome to aditnow anyway.

regards

Roy

Thank you. I didn't want to spam the forums with repeated posts so didn't try re-posting immediately. I'll have to rewrite it now - it was showing as pending yesterday but it didn't un-pend!

I find that when (rarely) composing a long post the server sometimes times-out, so when you come to hit Post, it looks like its gone through but has simply evaporated.

Better to do it off-line and paste in.

AOL mail pulls the same trick too.

hope this helps

Just select everything you typed and press ctrl-c before hitting post. Then if you lose it, you can simply repaste and try again. IP: 147.143.12.215

happens to me sometimes too, I write something then post, only it doesn't post. Usually, but not always, pressing back lets you try again but sometimes when I click back it's gone.

By default now, if it is a long post I do a ctrl+a and ctrl+c to put it all in the clipboard just in case. That has saved me a few times.

Just a gremlin in the matrix. Got to expect the odd bug! Still working better than Mine Explorer.
