Are gremlins back again ?
I posted twice and both threads have disappeared.

Yes, I have seen evidence of the gremlins! There was a post by Charlie (colorix) saying that she had missing posts.....and now that post has gone.....

Thanks Ruthie.
Now, my 2 threads "along the canal" are gone again and this gremlins thread has just reapeared ! Weird !

These are both brilliant! Lovely scenes, beautifully painted. I think you can post up to 5 little ones at a time - so keep posting, if you have more! I hope your mum is OK - It's lovely that you can keep her company in hospital and spend some time painting too.

I do believe the gremlins are back.... some weird stuff is happening...

They definitely are! I've just had another post go off course and end up on this thread!! I think it's time to have a few day's break from WC and hope all,s well when I return!

I just posted a photo of a painting I completed & cross posted in Animals & Wildlife. Poof......both threads are gone. :o

Sometimes my thread is missing more than half the posts then they reappear but half the views have dissappeared - very bizarre!

Here's the painting again...


Ah, this is crazy. I posted to a completely different thread.

08-11-2013, 09:52 AM
I am experiencing it too! Crazy random cross-posting. Definitely a big bug! :confused:

A hacker I think. What a laugh for him/her/it. When this thread is showing the two "canal" threads, which are definitely weird, aren't! So I can't post a link.....

This is getting very freaky. I can understand the paranoia, Jackie, given posts you didn't write are coming out under your name and that it's relevant to what you actually had posted. The style is different too and there's a typo. Then you have the negative commenter getting angry on your blog. It adds up - and then on top of it the glitch happens and random posts are going all over the place under different names.

Then again a hacker wouldn't necessarily care about hurting WC or causing a bigger problem, they often think of themselves as practical jokers.

Are the gremlins still here? I just posted in two forums and the threads disappeared.

YES. Site is up, BUT NOT FIXED.

One way to check the progress of the repairs is to check the Wetcanvas Facebook page. Last update was 12 hours ago:

We turned the forums back on, but unfortunately, the posts are still getting very mixed up. Our techs are still working on the issue and when we have news, I will update you all! -Sarah

I know that the techs find it easier to find and fix problems with the site live....However, they have asked for us not to post until they give the go ahead so look but don't post or reply for now! Thank you:thumbsup:
