What happened to the thread created by new member Sempernunc? Laura Gibbs responded, dlb and I did, but it disappeared.

Quid filo à Sempernunc sodale tirone facto contigit? Et ego et Laura Gibbs et dlb respondere. Id autem evanuit.

I read it, and even checked out the pdf Laura Gibbs posted about. Curiously, if you click on your username and click on the option to see your posts, you can see your answer, but following the link on the post you get "The requested topic does not exist." It looks like it was partially, but not completely, deleted. How and by whom I don't know. Maybe the original poster?

EDIT: Actually, I just went and looked at one of my own threads, and there's no option to delete it, so it must have been either a computer glitch or a moderator, but I can't see why anyone would have deleted it on purpose.

Maybe a computer glitch, as you say, ed.
Forsàn error computatrale, ut dicis, edouarde.

All of sempernunc's posts, including the beginning of the thread, were waiting approval, and I just approved them. They should appear now (they don't appear until they are approved). I was surprised to see that people were able to respond to them before the posts were approved, so it must have been some kind of glitch.

Hehe, I can explain.

The rule (as I found out later) is that the first 2 posts one makes must be moderator approved. My first post was my question thread.
After it was approved ~12h later, I posted again in the Open Board. This morning, when I saw the replies to my thread, I forgot that my 2nd post had not yet been approved, and posted a reply.
It was held up for approval.
Being impatient, I tried to cheat by editing the opening post of my existing thread, adding a note at the end saying "the moderators are holding up my reply" to explain my long silence.

This backfired, causing the whole thread to plunge back into approval limbo. And that's the story of how I broke Textkit.

That's actually pretty funny. Well, now you're at 4, so post all you want to. And welcome to textkit!
