As has been previously pointed out, we all lose posts when TRs are cleaned and locked. I read a lot of TRs, and regularly comment on them "ooh and aah". So when those TRs are eventually cleaned and locked, of course my posts will be cleaned away. I do not have a problem with this....it is part of forum life. So perhaps this is what has happened to some of your posts Cheetah tjie? :hmz:

Oh ok thanx DB :thumbs_up:

Good that some of the threads are being cleaned up...I think with some of the animals threads in between some very good posts with great information, there is a lot of drivel or just random chat stuff. Instead of it being a great source of info it becomes tiresomse to read through to get any good bits out. It would be great of somehow all the unimportant stuff could get deleted but guess that would take years of work to do it manually!

Apologies apologies. :redface: I thought I posted something in "Countdown" and could not find it again. When I searched properly I found them under "Countdown to KTP" Sorry if my original post was seen as a swipe at the Mods. I hope we can be friends again :D

Rooies, all,

If you think a post has gone missing, or need to fine a post of yours:

1. Go to your profile via the button on left bottom of any of your posts.
2. On the right of the next screen under 'User statistics' is a link to 'Search user's posts'. All your posts on the fourms will come up there.

Ja Ja, pick on me. Four posts from mods in a row. :shock: Listen, I made an honest mistake and it is not as if I have sunk the Titanic. I did say sorry, so stop all this :hmz: :rtm: :naughty: :D
