Mark,

           I will do this the next time it occurs.   It seems to have settled down for me over the last several days.  I am also a moderator on that group and when it happens I immediately merge the threads.   But I know also when it occurs that I have not, even for a single second, been in the Subject line and have used the Reply button to generate the post I'm making.  That's what's peculiar.

           And, to refresh my memory, I should just e-mail support@groups.io?

Hi,

Please CC me as I’m interested in what’s up, as I’m the owner of the said forum.

Cheers,

Hi Brian,

I have noticed recently, particularly on one group I'm on [Windows 10 for Screen Reader Users], that when I reply via the web interface the result is a new topic.

I am 100% certain that I have not touched the subject line in any way, which I know can cause an unintended split.    Has anyone else been experiencing this, even if intermittently, anywhere else?

Please send a message to support with a pointer to an example of where this happened.

 

Thanks,

Mark

Actually, if you suspect a bug, it would be faster to send it to support.

I haven't seen what you mention.

Not if it's secondary to a forums software error of some sort, and I strongly suspect it may be.  I wanted to bring it to Mark's attention, and the best and most immediate way to do that is posting to this group.

Any theories on what would cause it?
