What was your reply?


(And I believe that CD really is only on about 200-250 posts, not that astronomical number he is ascribing to himself, surely!)

Like I said: "could you explain why the (female) gender is of importance for the marketing job?"

But from what I get from Bafana's reply, it was being deleted because of it being an advertissement?

And n that case, strange to see the OP is back with his advertissement, but my reply has gone...

Only explanation to me would be that Bafana or the other mods have not seen the posting coming back again...

Here's the explanation Eric, they want you off the forum, they don't like you! Sheesh, you should be able to read between the lines. :P

Also noticed that my post count drops evry other day, been happening for a few weeks. Didn't want to mention anything just in case there was a obvious reason.

My original thought was that some kind of refresh or backup occurs which re-calculates post counts and that multi posts on a single thread are "Group" so only counting as one?

Just a thought and I'll keep my count everytime I post

Hey would like to share mine as well

I've been noticing it for a couple of months now. I've approached the mod and even admin but no explanation nor solution.

I've been actively involved in this title CGC: Events - the entire thread will go missing after events (usually it links to "calendar") -

This one got spared - I have to make a special request and this particular thread stays http://www.singaporeexpats.com/forum/ft ... 3-480.html

I have just noticed that the calendar and one of the features are missing as well, why???

What is the rational that certain thread/s has to go without explanation?

Why not locks the thread from further posting instead delete the entire thread?

Saint, what an intelligent way to keep your posts in check, huh?

Now it begs the question - does it really matter how many posts we are said to have contributed?

Obviously not to you Vaucluse, since you only post rubbish! :P

Some of us nicer folks actually post helpful stuff, which when people search for are found missing. :D
I think we may require the services of Inspector Vaucloseau!

Agreed, my post count dips now and again too, though I never really track the exact number, so I have no idea how many I lose each time. But I have noticed that some very innocent threads keep getting kidnapped.

Admin/Pal, we know you're busy, but its doing our heads in! Help! :???:
