Missing Messages

warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/lafamilia/ on line 123.

I just noticed that Linda's messages regarding her new DNA test results
aren't listed in the Ranchos website.

Previously I also noted that one of my posts apparently was truncated on the
way from my email client to the Ranchos website.

Just wanted to bring this to your attention so you can check if there's
something wrong and if there are any other instances where this is



Victor et al:

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. After a bit of sleuthing, I have found Linda's message. It is the last of a very long list of messages in a thread called "Introductions"

What happens is that messages that are recognized as replies to previous postings are compiled as comments to the first posting of the given topic. What happened in this case is that the topic has changed several times but the messages keep getting appended to the same topic nevertheless.

In order to avoid this, members should not reply to a message unless the new message is actually a reply to the message being replied to. If you are posting a new topic, please create a new message without using your reply button. Any messages composed as replies carry a marker of the original message being replied to and the site uses this to organize messages by topic.
