Double/Multi Postings

I was under the impression that, once started, threads were not deleted?, guess I misread a reply to Ella.

It hasn't been deleted but it has been moved to Helproom.

Thanks, but why did YOU have to tell me?

Actually I was just watching as the post count fell while double posts were eliminated

I told you, in the thread. You posted your thread in the wrong forum section, and I moved it. My post telling you that would have generated an email, so you would know. It happens all the time.

It didn't Generate an Email, I'm not THAT stupid.

You may well have generated a generic "new reply to your thread" not really the sames as an email advising the move.

advising of thread movements. I must move a thread at least once every day, and as far as I can recall I have only ever seen two or three people ask what has happened.

Your thread is in the Helproom, as Woolwell pointed out.

I don't ask for an individual email, you do what you have to, maybe I am the 4th person.

My emails come in on a different computer, so while I am on one Forum I may get a notification on the other Computer that I have received notification of a reply to PCA - normally it is about the current forum that I am monitoring.

I thank Woolwell for for his courtesy.

You must have (unticked the box) chosen the option to not to receive email notifications if you don't get an email when someone posts to your thread.
There is a little box at the bottom when you start a new Thread, it is ticked by default to notify you by email if someone responds to your Thread.

and it can sometimes be a little confusing.

If you post in the wrong forum area your thread will be moved, and an email will be generated - at least it will if you haven't deselected the option to receive these update messages each time there's an addition to your thread.

I didn't think you were stupid, by the way.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
