So I noticed there was a warning message while browsing Insider news telling me I needed to confirm my email to post, so I did, got the email, clicked the link, got a confirmation page and then...the message is still there. Have a similar warning in this forum too. (Already tried the obvious, refresh, clear cache and refresh.)
EDIT: Seems to be gone now...either fixed or I was just impatient (the email came basically instantly, guess I figured my account's email status would update as quickly )
It might be nice if, on the page of a question asked, a list of the same-user's other recent posted questions (either Quick Answers/Forum) were shown with date/time (sorted from most recent) and title (as links).
( In Quick Answers, perhaps on the right, above/below the Top Experts lists. In Forums, maybe a popup/hover/???. )
If we see a (very) recent question with the same or similar title, we can check if it is really the same question or not.
I (like most of us, I expect) go through the Quick Answers in the presented order (most recent first). We will not necessarily see that the question is a repeat. And in the Forums, it is even harder to detect cross-posting.
I marked 3 posts as spam, refreshed the page and noted that they were then then marked as removed (at which point I thought - hey God powers, cool).
I then wandered off to see if there were any other posts worth nuking with my new super powers, when I returned to the Lounge the removed posts were back, slightly advanced time. There were no vote counts.
I then repeated the excercise proving my God powers were in my browser only. I thought you had maybe given select users 1 vote nukability, which may not be a bad idea as some here you can trust not to abuse the ability!

Take a look to the lower left corner. There are some infos there, one of them is which server are you connected to "Web0x". There are some problems with the synchronisation of the different servers.
I have already seen, that I answer to a thread, go to other place and come back and there are 5 or 6 threads less (where my answer not exist yet), just several F5 or go to another forum and come back get you to another Web0x and then.... voila, all is there (or not)
You can check it with your reputation as well, depending on which one you connect, your reputation is 40 or 50 points less than it should
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I have seen you mention something like that in the past, so I actually did make a mental note, that when I saw the messages reappeared, the page came from Web03.
When I returned later and saw them removed again, I tried to refresh a few times, but could not seem to "land on" Web03 again, so I did not research it any further.
