Duplicate Posts for the exact title/subject ???

Postby tpollauf » Sun May 31, 2015 11:59 am

OK so I'm not going crazy but hopefully the Admins can explain this. As I daily try to stay up on all of us members here @ GenVibe, I noticed one of the heaviest posts "What did you do to your Vibe today?" only had FOUR total posts. Mine being the fourth. I knew that this topic had hundreds of posts over the past several years so I looked it up and sure enough, there are two IDENTICAL word for word posts. Any explanations form the experts?

Below are the two posts:

viewtopic.php?f=20&t=30525&start=3000

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=44153

Also Admins, any word on when we'll see the GREEN bar return? You know the one that shows us as being "online"? Thanks for your help ;)

The two threads entitled “What did you do to your Vibe today?” are just a coincidence. The thread that is in the Vibe Lounge Forum was started by a new member who was not aware of the other thread in the Maintenance Bay Forum (hence my quote above from the Vibe Lounge Forum thread).

As far as the green “online” bar goes, I too am still not seeing it when I’m online :|.

I would think that there would be some "error" message pop up if you try to create a new thread when one already exists. I guess not :roll:

Those posts were recently merged (duplicate) so there is only one left now.

The green bar (online/offline) may have been disabled due to some database optimization that was performed due to some issues with the forum going offline. I cannot say if or when it may return.
