I finally figured this one out, I think, After having the same experience several times. Instead of taking you to the specific question asked it just drops you in the classroom. If you answer immediately you will see the question at the top of the discussion. The older the question, the further down the discussion line. I only discovered this because the last few days I have spent on the computer pretty consistently and I finally made this discovery!

I kinda thought I was the first few times I tried to find the link. I though I was being redirected!

I now also realize why some people never find them, if I am looking immediately after the post, it has not been removed yet! People who come a little later never see the post at all.

Hi.

Sometimes questions are posted - but posters have the ability to remove their posts (it's happened tonight with me replying to two separate queries - now the discussions have disappeared).

So sometimes people will get the answer they need, and maybe think they have to delete the post now (you don't, if you think you do).

All the best, Mark

Thanks Mark, same thing just happened to me a few minutes ago and has quite a few times before and I've been wondering about that!

np - things don't just go missing - if there was a functional issue with WA, then thousands of posts would be going missing. I know how databases work (it's my 9 to 5) - wrong queries are quickly noticed and reported by users. The odd few here and there, ring of user intervention - and for some reason, removing posted comments would have exactly the effect we've noticed.

Just a comment for anyone thinking they have to remove something (either cause they think it was a daft question, or that they have their answer) - please don't. There are so many people who will benefit from seeing your question and the responses to it, that it is a real community benefit to keep ALL comments and questions visible.

All the best, Mark

Hey Mark....yes, if the questions are being deleted, it sort of defeats the purpose of a discussion room, doesn't it? I mean, we can all learn something from the questions and answers...if they APPEAR.
Ok, if you people are doing this deleting noise, please stop....it's making us NUTZ....and thanks for the clarification!!!

Whew, I feel better now....lol

Happened to me also... just thought the content may have been inappropriate and therefore removed. Glad to see it was not imagined. Thanks.
