"View Recent Posts" Section
« on: June 25, 2011, 10:43:25 AM »
As you are probably aware occasionally we have spammers who post on the forum.  The Global Moderators do their best to delete these as soon as possible.  Over the last 3 days we have had in total 200+ such posts which we have deleted.

With the clean up yesterday for some inexplicable reason the posts on the forum between today and 13th June under the View the most recent posts on the forum section have disappeared.  They are still visible under each individual Regional Board just not visible in the "recent posts" section.

yeah, and only the 14 most recent posts show, to me at least...is that by design or accident?

Sorry Tampopo can't explain what happened as when I deleted the 102 spammed posts everything looked fine at the end of it.  But when I logged on the next day found all the intervening between 13th and 25th had disappeared from the "recent posts" section but are still there in the regional boards.  

Have no explanation as to how that happened as each of the 102 was deleted individually.

I see. Just a glitch then. Or 'one of those things', like the yorkshire board often being the only thread attacked by spam....odd...

I've just done a major cleanup of about 100+ spam posts, so if anything's gone missing again that could be the reason.
