How do I...access replies at computing.net.
i have so far asked three questions at the forum. the replies for the first question were conducted at computing .net main page because i did not know of the email system. the replies for the second question were also carried on thus but i got into a tangle with a moderator and shortly thereafter, that specific file was not to be found on the servers even by me the author.
now i got the hang of the email system and have asked my third question. my email says that i have ten responses but to my astonishment, when i click on the link to access each one, i am told the file can not be found on the server. please give me some sage advice.

edited by moderator: remove public e-mail address

The first bit of advice is NEVER publish your email address on a public forum unless you don't mind tons of spam.

The second bit of advice is that this is a public forum and no private correspondence is entered into. The answer you may be given may also help someone else.

Thirdly if you want to keep track of your posts click on the red flag at the top of the post. Your post will then appear in the box headed "Your Tracked Posts" to the right of this page.

... also by clicking onto your name should "hop" to list(s)

... if someone wishes to email you, after clicking name then "E-mail" should work, if you had selected that as an option in your settings

And if you have received email notification of responses to your question, but the thread is missing when you try to access those responses, it means the moderators have yanked the thread due to either the subject matter being unacceptable on the forum, or one or more of the responses contained offensive materiel or comments. It may not have been your fault but sometimes the moderators exercise their option to delete an entire thread if the path of replies goes awry.. At other times they remove individual offensive responses. If in doubt please read over the forum rules again.

true enough rich, but do explain to me how all ten of the ten responses can fall in this category at the same time.forgive me but it seems out of the ordinary.

Posts usually get deleted if the forum rules are broken. There are many reasons but one is when a question is requesting, or related to, piracy or hacking information. I have seen some of your recent posts and wonder if this might be the reason.

We all live on a ball.

jasper12... No, but why would this make any difference to the advice?

Jasper, you have only participated in 2 threads since you joined CN, the thread we're in now, and THIS ONE. That's it. If you asked other questions, they were apparently deleted for some sort of rule violation.

And if you want to know who the moderator of a certain forum is, scroll to the bottom of the particular forum's main page. For instance, the moderators for "The Lounge" forum are jpishgar & Justin Weber.

mickliq:

The THIS ONE link in your response takes us to a dell.com page.

Is that the link you meant to include?
