Ever notice a nic as the last post of a given thread on the home page and when you go to read it its not there?  The "reference" to the post even exists on the dashboard page, but the post isn't there...well...its happened a few times to me...and to a few other posters whose stuff I happen to like to read, because its informative and entertaining.   It just happened to me again, and I suddenly realized why...If you type out a post, hit submit, and exit TOO quickly, well...I don't know the technical explanation, but it looks like you posted something, but its just not my suggestion is....after you hit SUBMIT...give it 3-4 seconds....and the post will pop up and give you a chance to edit it...if you don't, it might just disappear and leave your NIC behind all by itself...

Thanks! I was wondering why I couldn't find other folks posts. This explains a lot!

Not 100% sure, but since I started taking my time "submitting" and then moving on, it hasn't happened....

Seems like it's mostly when it's starting a new page on a thread.

OK. That explains it. Good to know. Thanks.

And Im glad it wasn't "just me" pun intended....
