If you start to do a reply to a thread, and that thread is moved as you are replying, your reply fails and the post is pretty much gone. Would it be possible to keep the thread id, or whatever it is that your reply gets attached to, consistent so that your
reply still attaches to the post in its new location? Or come up with some other mechanism for achieving the same? It doesn't happen a lot, but it's quite annoying when it does as you lose your post (I know about copying before you post etc, but we don't
always do these things and this is a problem with a solution), and when mods are active threads are getting moved a lot and the situation can be worse than normal.

Thanks for reporting this. Can you point me to the thread to which you were replying when you had this problem? Was it http://forums.asp.net/t/2011550.aspx?check+all+checkboxes+?

It wasn't that one, no. TBH I can't remember which one it was :o If you need a thread id to investigate further then I'll update this thread the next time it happens.

Yes, please let us know next time it happens. I am just trying to find the repro case so that the developers have something to work from.
The thing is, when threads are moved (from one forum to another) the thread ID and the post ID do remain the same. It's only when a post is split off from a thread (or joined to another thread) that the thread ID changes, but even in those cases the post
ID remains the same. All of those scenarios are testing OK for me, so I am scratching my head trying to figure out what the scenario is that's causing the failure.

Ok thanks, I'll post here next time it happens, like I said though it doesn't happen often.

just wondering about a scenario: Could it be that you're replying to a post that in the mean gets deleted / moved to space where threads die and then it gets resurrected to a live forum? Terri might that be a repro case?
