Some of my posts seem to disappear for a while then reappear some time later?  And what does the little star looking thing mean.

My post about my printer disappeared for a while came back and now has a star at the start.

I think the little star you're meaning is the indication that you have a post in the topic it is adjacent to.

 

How are you looking for your post(s)? For example, if you use the View New Content search at the top of the page, it will not list a post you've just been looking at because there is no new content. But you'd see it if you then looked at the actual forum topic listing.

I'm still not clear which posts you're referring to, but if you mean you just scan down the list of posts in that forum, I don't know of any reason why your post would not appear at any time. The quickest way to navigate to your posts is probably to click on the drop-down next to your member name at top right of the page and select My Content.

As new topics are posted and replies are posted in other topics they jump to the top of the list in the forum board.

What you see as a topic disappearing is likely a result of those new topics/posts pushing your topic down the topic listing page.

When someone replies to your topic it gets sent back up to the top of the listings, which may be what is happening when you say it reappears.

In addition to using My Content as suggested by Platypus, you can also follow your topic and I do see that you are following it.

When a new reply has been posted to the topic, you will see a notification on the icon between the private message envelope and your member name. There will be a number to tell you how many new replies have been added.

You can click on the notification, then click the topic link in it to go straight to the topic.

If you are following a topic and do not get the notification, go to your settings by clicking the drop-down arrow next to your name at the top of the page and choose Settings/Notifications on the left of the settings page.

Notification method to use for replies to followed topics: make sure Notification List is checked. If not, check it, scroll down and click Save Changes.

You can also set it up to receive an email when there is a new reply.

The star next to a thread means you posted in that thread at some point :)

If you take your cursor and hover over the star you will see a notice that "you posted in this topic".
