Fishy spooky conundrums

Something spooky is happening to my blog.  I can’t put my finger on it, but I don’t like it at all.  Last night, I noticed that at least three comments had mysteriously vanished from my previous post.  I am always very careful when moderating my comments, so there is no reason how they could have been accidentally deleted.

I am 100% sure they were there before because I saw those comments during lunchtime yesterday and I even responded to them.  There was a comment from Michelle saying that my shopping behaviour was clearly shown in the meaning of my name in that post.  And then I remember also reading a comment from Andie who said she might want to give this quiz a try herself, and I think there was also a comment from cc that it was quite an interesting quiz (I think) – did I miss out anyone?

Oh yeah, and I definitely know there was a trackback from Paris too, cuz I commented on her post when I saw it.

So, see? I ain’t imagining things!

I blame the bizarre behaviour on the latest WordPress 2.5.1.  Don’t like it all that much yet.  It has a rather cluttered interface, and the color scheme has also changed to something less cooler than before, if you ask me.

Well, I hope this is the first and last of mysterious happenings on my blog, but just to be on the safe side, I’m gonna run another backup right now.

  1. That is weird and spooky alrite. Mine sometimes do that too, but I thought it was my fault. I mess too much with the WP.

    The Giddy Tigress says: Well, it could or could not be my fault too, but I guess there is no way for me to know that now, huh?

    Hurhur… I haven’t upgraded my blog and I don’t think I wanna if such mysterious things happen!

    The Giddy Tigress says: Trust me, I think the old version is much more user-friendly than this one! I am eagerly waiting for the next major upgrade, hopefully it will solve all these problems.

  4. cc says:

    Did you check whether you received any email notification about the comments?

    The Giddy Tigress says: I have not set up my email to receive notifications when I get comments. But I am 100% sure they were there. And even if I did receive the notification, that can’t bring the comments back, right? SOB SNIFF.

    Wow u keep track of your comments. I read them and forget about it. Not sure any got deleted after that…kekeke.

    You can check whether the back end database to see whether it is still there. I can teach you tomorrow with a free cup of teh tarik from you 😛

    The Giddy Tigress says: Of course! The comments that I get are all very important to me. If someone makes the effort to comment, I should make the effort to appreciate them too.

    mine hasn’t tried to be sneaky or anything, although it gets a bit slow at times..

    The Giddy Tigress says: Slowness is something we all deal with. SIGH.

  10. wen says:

    thats why i had my webmaster to remove the 2.5 and reinstalled back the 2.3.3.
    i dont even dare to upgrade anymore

    The Giddy Tigress says: Upgrading was an easy task to do, it’s just I don’t like the GUI now, but what to do, we have to move with the new upgraded versions.

  11. zewt says:

    nothing supernatural happened right 🙂

    The Giddy Tigress says: Well, I hope it stays that way!

  12. Chen says:
