I had to ask that question too. Look in the upper left where it says "quick links", click that and new posts appears in the drop down list.

Facebook from a guy who used to be a steady poster here, but no more.

Ok tech guys, have had a coolant leak for awhile and if I filled up the radiator it would just leak out to a point. Although bike never gets hot unless slow parades does this look like itís been leaking to you?

and I keep seeing this everyday, the ease of Social Media and using just the cellphone/tablet has just about destroyed our forums.


but, once the replies quit, like in 6 hours, you can't find that "thread" again to save your life.


You have no idea of where it was, on his Timeline, or inside on the Groups that Facebook makes it easy to start? no way to know, unless your keep a logbook and bookmark for that one post.

Bill,


is that in reference to this forum, the extremely long time for you to see your own post display?

That's just one of the things that drove me away from farcebook.

It looks like it didn't post at all, like you didn't click the submit button, your last post before this one was 12/17/18 If they won't post or are slow you will get an obvious error of some kind.

Iím getting vibration when setting off, itís through the drive system & disappears at 2000rpm, itís 28 years old with 60000 miles on it, would I be right in thinking a prime suspect would be the crush drive rubbers?
Itís perfectly smooth after 2000rpm.

Not saying you did this, but, IF you happen to click on the PreView button, it will show up looking exactly like it was posted to the forum....


then you go off to read another thread, and ?????? where did my post go?


I know this to be a fact, because GoldwingDocs and GoldwingFacts have the Submit and PreView buttons reversed in the order they appear...


and with me jumping around to several forums all day long, I am a creature of habit, and I click on the first button from the Left side..... duh!!! a lot of posts get lost.


Or, I have just come back here from my Linux forum, and it is reversed also...
and I hit the PreView button on this forum..... that just happened to me last night, I thought that I had put up a post..... but it never appeared......

What do you consider normal? There have been 115 different people on the forums yesterday and today, from the members list sorted by last activity.
