Thread Replication happens for numerous reasons.
The link to the stream caused it for me today.
Yesterday, slashes materialized beside the quotation marks of the comment by Coloartist.
This prevented editing of that post. Using apostrophes has caused thread replication for me and others.
When I attempted to post photos from the philzone, the thread duplicated.
Several others were also having thread replication problems. I believe that the replication occurs because:
Outside Source of emoticons (TMax),
Quoting someone who used quotation marks or apostrophes (Kevin, Karenrose),
Some outside sources of photos (Sustainabill),
Posting Links (Platoscave),
Posting Videos (Patchmyfurthur)
When Thread Replication occurs, a couple of magic words help guide the
moderator to delete the thread and thereby reduce some of the clutter.
Edit thread title to Please delete this thread, and edit contents of thread to Thank you.
If you wish to keep the thread, you may change the title to Link to... or Video of ...
I have been doing this for weeks as I try to learn how to adjust to the injured forum.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Remember to mind your quotes and apostrophes!
