That's ok. I popped on here the other day, I don't know what was going on, forum work, bad connection, something, but I could only get to the General Elemental part of the forums. I couldn't see the categories of the other sections of the forums. Oddly enough though I could get to the other sections by going through the "My Replies" links at the top of the page.
Later that afternoon when I came back to the forums all was normal. When it happened I went to other sites, Gamespot, a few others I visit, and they were fine as was my connection to them. I just chalk it up to more gremlins in the works here on these forums.
My advice, if you make a long post here on the forums and you know it's a conversation you want to take part in, make a copy of your posts somewhere so if the forums eat them later you can repost them.
