    On several occasions I have responded to a thread (usually those that have not been answered) and go back and check to see if there has been any follow up other than the reply I posted and the threads have disappeared.

    When I click on "Latest Activity" and then "yours" the posts are not there.

    An example is a question that was asked earlier today, I do believe, about how do we find our views that come from Twitter.  I responded with where that information could be found and went back to look a couple of hours later and the thread is gone.

    Is this when the OP removes the thread?  Is that possible to do so along with replies?

      It could be a glitch. I posted a question the other day, along with a summary of what had happened to me. It was about three paragraphs. When I went to check if anyone had responded, I could not find the thread at all...nothing..zilch. I didn't bother re-posting because I'd lost the zeal to rewrite all that information.

      Well shoot!  Thanks! 

      It would seem that HP would still have it showing up in our recent activity!  I propose that they remedy that so old folks like me don't think they are losing their memory!

        Glad you found it, maybe my question is somewhere hidden as well!

          I found it from the link paradigmsearch shared, but it still does not show as recent forum activity when I responded just now. 

          Not sure how paradigmsearch found it.  Maybe doing a search.  But I do know I still can not see it.

          Sort of leaves me stumped for sure.  Sorry to hear you have had an issue with your "own" post that you published.

          Hopefully HP will check into this.

              Well maybe if you could remember the title or keywords in the title?

            That was moved to Social Networking>Twitter, so you have to switch to 'topical forums'.

              Okay, thanks for that.  I always assumed that when you view "all" forums that all would show up.  It is getting complicated for me, lol. 

              Now to show my ignorance, how does one switch to "topical forums"?

                Just remember you can always go to "my activity" on your profile page and go to anyplace you've been.

                  It is not showing there.  I gave that a try and that is why I posted this thread, lol.  I have no idea of why, but it is not there.

                Where it says 'HubPages Official' in the left sidebar--above that is a button that says 'switch to topical forums'.

                  Thanks!  I found it.  Still wondering why it is not showing in my recent activity however.

                    You mean 'My Activity' on your profile page? Yes, I'd have thought it would show there.

    Below is my "recent activity" screenshot and I responded to that Twitter post 10 minutes or so ago.

      To the left, there should be a sidebar. That's where it says 'switch to topical forums'.

        I see it now when I made the switch.  So, we have to switch between the two to see our latest activity?  Well that is a double whammy, lol.  I always presumed anything I responded to would be in the immediate latest activity.  I wonder how many I have missed over the years!

    I do appreciate the guidance and instructions.  I have finally learned how to do this and track posts, but I wonder how many others, like myself, have not been able to do so and missed such things.  Maybe just me, lol.  I need more "B" vitamins I reckon.

    It's the 9th one down on your "my activities" list.

      I found it there.  I had forgotten we could check there.  That may be the best starting point for me in the future and that way I don't have to switch back and forth.

      Thanks. smile
