BUG: Apparently-garbage forum topic entries in this web-site software

• Mar 28, 2019 - 23:26

Presently, the forum software lists a topic that is provocatively-titled "Why is MuseScore not a 'professional' program?," started 7 years ago, which supposedly was responded-to "3 hours ago." But the response isn't there: the actual latest response was in 2017.

This appears to be a well-known problem with this forum software which I have now seen in many other contexts: when the Dutiful Forum Moderators™ expunge a garbage post, the "time of latest post" for the forum itself is not rolled back. Hence, the should-be long-dead forum reappears at the top, and sometimes (innocently) attracts a new post.

I hope that the owners of this forum will now join their colleagues in urging the vendors to finally address this issue.


I don't know what you mean the posts aren't there:

These are the last three posts to that topic and the last one was minutes ago and the one before that about 3 hours ago US Central time. The times are based upon what your system settings are since this is a world wide forum.

One more thing, these forums are not truly moderated. You post your comment, press save and the post is added. There are people who keep an eye on the forums and will remove spam or extremely offensive posts, but that's normally because people like you or me contact the webmaster through the contact us link at the bottom of this page or use the 3 dots to the right of the time to mark the post as spam.
