One way to contribute to this group is to use a news item link to start a thread here in this group, and ask questions in order to stimulate a discussion about that subject.

 

In the above news links, find something you care about or have some knowledge about.

 

Copy the link to the news item or submit a news item of your own. Start a thread here in this group with the link, and ask others to note the news.

 

You can also start a dicussion around that news item, rather than making comments within the news item itself. Here, your conversation and discussion will not disappear, as it often does in the news item.

re
6 years ago

I have done the same thing.. Sometimes it might be a Care2 bug, but in other cases, I think it might be the author of the news taking comments off, just like some comments might be deleted in certain groups, along with the author.

 

As with other bugs, be sure to complain to Care2. The more that people complain about any given bug, the more chance there is that it will be fixed eventually, (but with no guarantee that it will be).

Hi Group,

Sometimes we add some very valid points to the item/s, then ... poof ... gone after approx 3 mins.
