@dave

It was the same plant that I posted a comment and after I clicked finished both times, both disappeared into thin air. Grumbling Blinking Confused Crying Sad

When I reload the plant to see the comment, it isn't there, but I just looked on the main page and it's there three times. Confused Confused Confused

(Guess I had to do it 3 times)

Finally, it's showing up on the plant page. How to get rid of the duplicates?

Thank you Zuzu! I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up

But why did it happen? I'm trying to get comments in and spent too much time on just one of them.

Only two of the three comments were identical, Marilyn. The third looked more like a rough draft. You added some information to the other two.

Is your computer running slow? If you get tired of waiting for a command to be executed and click the button again, the comment could appear twice (or three times, in this case).

Marilyn, I checked your recent comments from your profile and don't see any duplicates. Can you please link the plant in question?

I had the thread already open before you posted, left it open while looking with a new window for those duplicate comments and then came back and posted. In the meantime you had fixed things and posted. Green Grin!

Also, isn't there also a bit of time between when a comment is submitted, while it goes through approval by a Moderator, and then is posted to the plant entry on the database?

Ah, I thought zuzu said she was reading each one, editing etc. Must have been data entries I was thinking of.

@Zuzu checks spelling,... I believe, after they're posted. We don't edit content. Actually I have edited content when a member asked me to do so.

I want to assure everyone that I don't change the content of the comments. I just look for typos and for missing punctuation marks that could obscure the meaning.
