Norman's posts

It looks like a lot of Norman’s posts disappeared. There are quite a few threads that without those now are incomplete.

Do you think the information could be restored?

Edit: As Dave said, it looks like everything he posted on the last 4 weeks is gone.

It does seem that anything Norman posted in the last month has vanished…

according to Forum activity his last post was on Nov 14… and I know for a fact he has posted quite a bit since

he writes a lot on the forums. I bet there was some form of backend issue and has undone a lot of his posts. this is PURE GUESS on my part.

Norman helps a lot on the forum. I hope it’s a technical problem and not a personal problem.

They have been pruning their posts and messaging on the forums as of late so I am not surprised.

Would be nice if someone from Xojo could comment.
@Greg O’Lone @Dana Brown @Geoff Perlman to name a few.

For example it used to be that when they deleted a post you would see a visual indication of it as well as who did it. Often Dana would chime in and say they removed it because of XYZ forum rule.

Lately I have noticed they have simply removed the posts from the database or deleted them in a way that does not leave any evidence it ever existed.

Not conspiracy thinking or an elaborate plot device. Just an observation on how they engage/manage the forums has changed.

Dad (in this king of situations) usuallly said “it smell bad”. (with German accent) :frowning:

Addition:

Norman entries here at Recent Changes are still present with an entry dated as of today.

Normaly “pruning” takes place from OLDER to newer… not the other way around

That is the WIKI, not this forum

Maybe his post counter wasn’t 64-bit :wink:

Doh !

My thought too - his post count clocked over 32,767.

He was only at 19325.

It seems that Norman’s posts reappeared.

Oh the suspense! What happened? Will it happen again?

Its so quiet, now I know what my dog feels like when I leave the house :frowning: Sorry doggo!

I hope Norman is ok.

#FreeNorman (too soon?) :slight_smile:

never too soon to free Norm!
We all love Norm.

A mistake resulted in some of Norman’s posts being deleted- those posts have since been restored.

But he didn’t write any post since :confused: .

It made me wonder if someone offended him… more than once he has come close to stopping to post…

BTW when I looked at his profile last night, it was essentially blank… even the link to his own website (Great White) is gone…
