I accept that this may be a "Bad" Topic, yet it needs to be highlighted, surely where "NAS" can *not* avoid seeing it, surely...
Current Problems with this Forum:- Posts Disappear and Reappear at Random.- Notifications are not always received (apparently).- Editing Posts - *after* they have been replied to.- Things such as "Groups" or "BlogPosts" or "Questions"... seem to have no meaning, and so they cannot be applied...? (Anyone reading, you may currently check your own "Profile" to confirm this. Click upon your own "Achievements", and then upon "List of Possible Achievements".)- ... There is a great list of "Achievements". Again, many of these have no defined meaning and so are un-achievable. (Linked to "Questions", "BlogPosts", "Ideas", "Status"...?)- Assigning "Tags" to a New Thread seems to change constantly, and has neither Logical Order nor Meaning.
Here is the "Main" Thread, at which Comments directly to NAS are supposed to be Posted... yet much of it is completely ignored by NAS; It is only responded to by "WebPM", but for whom NAS would not have this "Forum" in the first place, I would wager...community.autism.org.uk/.../online-community---comments-improvements-and-feedback
An update regarding missing images. For the problem of images being posted and then disappearing afterwards, we believe that we have identified a software bug. This is fixed by a patch available from the suppliers. We are planning to apply the patch. That is designed to prevent any more images from vanishing. I do not yet have a time-scale for this, but obviously we will do it as soon as possible.
We are trying to recover the images that are already missing. This may or may not be possible. I'll post updates when we have them. Apologies for any inconvenience or confusion that this has caused.
I'll look separately at the notifications issue, not least because there is a thread for that.
(Later edit: sorry, but we have been unable to recover the missing images. Our backups are designed to protect the messaging database in the first instance. This problem is rather untypical for a forum, and the affected images are also missing from our backups.)
Thank you for replying with good news,
sorry I came across so moody,
Can I now suggest a new issue has arisen, although it doesn’t cause me any issues as such it may be an indication of the problems that exhist and may cause issues with email notifications.
If you go to the main forum page you will see many topics, some are new, if you look at the replies part and see six or whatever you may also see zero views,? So no views? Also some have twenty odd or so subscribers! But no views?
Pit msy not be related to email notifications but is still a malfunction.
thank you for your continued vigilance and help in sorting out what sometimes are hard to see issues.
views currently 740.
replies currently 47,
and although I am here replying there are no members showing here, my light is also not lit as I type?
Am I even here?
Ok been back to this page six times and the view figure hasn’t changed from 740.
screen shot of main page, notice zero views but 17 replies on the SNOW related thread.
(...Darn it, "Quotations" are not working again just now...)

...Mr. LoneWarrior - Do not work too much over that first part, Please! When "A Single User" has viewed a page, it is supposed to count that *once*, and if you revisit, then it does not count that User again... at least, that is as far as I myself understand it. (To stop persons from rising the popularity of a Thread by just repeatedly visiting it.)
... Regarding the second part... I did indeed notice this upon another (short) Thread... and again, now I know that it is not my own "old" devices yet again... aarrgh...!
Thank You - yet another discrepancy to add to the list here?? But the worst in my view is still the "Disappearing Posts" palaver. And not in my view (literally) the "Notifications" business.
Hi DC so it still says 740 views,maybe neither of us exhist?
And I would say that if I keep visiting a thread each time it does actually count me up one more time, I did it once to check.
I am however pleased that you took the trouble to start this thread as it has proved that unless we or you keep on telling them nothing gets noticed, we spend a considerable amount of time here, well I do anyway, so I do notice things, it is my way to spot things that are incorrect or not quite perfect, my nature is thus.
Also glad that you have had your voice heard and action has been taken to remedie a long standing issue of vanishing pictures, we are unofficial NAS operatives regards maintence issues ( joke).
As I type it says one member is here and yet my green light is unlit. I fear I am slowly fading away,

...Glad Tidings, this is me, "not chatting" again...(!) With regards to the Quoted thing, there, you might have visited a Thread at the same time as someone else... But - I acknowledge that you could be correct, and so if you are really that curious, try visiting a really old/forgotten/obscure Thread, and see if you can count it up that way. I admit that I could be wrong, yet WebPM would give a final answer, and obviously I am not WebPM...
...There are >33000 Users Registered here, apparently...

P.S. - I might point out that some of us - me, at least (!) - do not actually know what this means. We have no way of knowing who is online at the time or not. However, you do not need to explain this, as I can understand that it is different accross different machines.
