Question When Mods are Merging Threads

Have you noticed that photos go missing & things don't always end up as originally posted?

What's up with that?

I am not sure what you mean. Can you elaborate a little ?

Oh sorry! I guess I should have been more specific. I've noticed this before but didn't think much of it & since it happened again, I thought I should mention it.

There was a thread where everybody posted pics of themselves. I posted 3 pics on it long ago. The other day Muttlies posted a new thread to get people to post their pics. So, I just found the original thread & copied my pics from one post to the other. Then, the threads were merged & now 2 of my pics are missing.

I can hunt them down & go back & edit but I did want to report that things are apparently going missing when merging posts.

Hmm, now that you mention it I took a quick look and one of my pics is missing as well. I need to check more of the posts and the mod log to see what happened.

Sorry about that I was not the one that merged the two thread.

Perhaps this is an issue that need to be looked at by our admin to see it if it is a glitch or something else. Thanks for the heads up. Now I need to see what PIC that was that I lost.

Just repost the pics you had lost for now. Thanks for the post.

Were the missing pics attached directly to the post(s), or were they linked? That might help us get to the bottom of it if there is a glitch in the system.

They were linked using URLs from an online photo site I use. They were there just yesterday in the original thread & the new one created by Muttlies. Then, when they were merged, the first 2 pics went missing.

Also, I noticed other pics are now missing from that thread too. I probably wouldn't have noticed if I didn't go search out the old thread to "be lazy" & just copy my pics. Then today, when somebody posted to the thread, I was curious to see who posted a new pic & saw the missing pics.

That's the only reason I can say they were there yesterday (or was it the day before?) & gone today.

It's really odd that links would get muddled in a merge. I'll take a peek at the thread tomorrow (it's bedtime now), but if you could edit in the affected post numbers to you last post, I'll look at each of them to see what I can find.

I hope this will help clarify the problem:

The original thread is HERE
My original post to the original thread is HERE

Muttlies created a new thread a few days ago (now exists as post #111 & beyond in the original thread linked above). Since I knew the old thread existed, I searched it out, found my post & just copied it to the new thread (that post is now #118 which I'll delete after all this is figured out).

In addition, I posted a link to the original thread so there would be a cross-reference.

All photos were in both places at that time & were for some time after as I went back to that thread a few times to see more postings.

Then, the threads were merged. When I went back to see if others had posted new pics, I noticed that 2 pics from both my original post & the copied version went missing.

I've checked my online photo storage & all the pics are where they should be so there is no reason on my end for them to go missing.

I can easily go back & edit them back in but didn't want to mess with any posts before mods had a chance to identify why this occurred.

I have since noticed that pics from other members are also missing.

What is weird is that if you look at the posts where the images appear to be missing, the code is actually there, but the images are not displaying. I have sometimes found that normal posts will have this very same problem-someone will post an image, wonder why it does not display, and if I go in and copy and paste the code making NO changes, mysteriously the images will appear.
I suspect that the "case of the missing images" can be fixed easily using this same method.
