digitalmars.D - Something up with the forums?

Just had someone respond to a thread in D.gnu complaining that

lost.

Here's another example:

http://forum.dlang.org/post/ku3odb$bpe$1 digitalmars.com

At a first glance, it looks like there's only two posts in that 
thread, but looking in my inbox, there's actually seven... This 
looks like some sort of bug to me.  Though I wouldn't know when 
it actually started not working (4th August is a good starting 
point).

Apparently, posts from the mailing lists are not making it to the web i/f; the other direction seems to work.

I'm using the lists; that thread has 8 posts here. All of /my/ recent posts haven't appeared in the web i/f... The one above, posted using the 'forum' as a test, did arrive via email. This message (sent via email) probably won't show up in the web i/f... artur

Same thing in claws mail, two posts. Probably something to do with NNTP rather than the web interface.

I guess one thing I make heavy use of filters which use tagging and archiving to make a pseudo folder structure. Essentially, all mail that matches my (fairly large and growing) filter list is archived and labelled. So all messages that get sent from this ML - as well as my own postings, *always* skips the inbox and are archived as a de facto, but then are labelled as "D Mailing List". It is also possible for threads to gain extra labels if certain keywords are used in them over time... :o) Not sure if such a set-up would work with the local client, but yes, I use the web interface. --=20 Iain Buclaw *(p < e ? p++ : p) =3D (c & 0x0f) + '0';

Maybe due to that issue with mailman rewriting IDs? If not, I have no idea why. The problem with gmail is that your own messages to the mailing list don't even get delivered to you, so they don't show up in the thread, so if you're using a local mail client, replies to your message have no message to thread onto. And AFAIK, that only really affects other people when you reply to your own messages. Either way, I'm not using gmail anymore. - Jonathan M Davis
