| | ATTENTION: 'Post does not exist' after post. Post not lost!
If you get a "Post does not exist" error after posting, your post is not lost. This is because the database crash earlier caused the existence of nonexistent thread pages, so some threads have extra pages that no longer exists.
Just go back to the original thread and start on the first page, and read to subseqeunt pages from there. Your new post is there on an earlier page -- just not on the last page (which is missing).
This problem has been reported to Guess. I have noticed a few people have been scared away from posting further (just by noticing that they stopped posting after they posted for the first time in a thread containing phantom pages), thinking their post really did get lost.
