Have you ever had an old question randomly reappear?

Asked by wundayatta (58571points) February 2nd, 2009

Fluther is acting strange. My screen keeps jumping around every time I type something. I think it’s trying to give me an epileptic seizure. Oh. It stopped. Good.

Anyway, this old question reappeared when I opened another window to try to get rid of the jumping stuff. Here’s the thing. It wa question the moderators had flagged. They said it was too vague. I rewrote it, and submitted it and for a week, I haven’t heard anything about it. Now it suddenly reappears. Does this mean I should submit it again? Or is this some weird artifact of fluther that means nothing?

Of course, it then disappeared when my computer had a meltdown.

Perhaps you have a quantum computer and you’ve tapped into an alternate reality.

@AstroChuck: that’s an excellent idea. I’ve always had the feeling I was living in an alternate reality. This guy on the street came up to me in a furtive way, and pulled open his coat. I thought the usual, but no, he was trying to sell these computer chips cheap. See, they weren’t always there. So I bought one, and the man disappeared. Really. He was suddenly gone. I put the chip in my computer, and ever since then… it seems like things keep flickering. My desk rearranges itself. The weather changes abruptly. Even the time of day changes. (It’s weird here, at night).

The worst thing, is that my brain keeps changing. Sometimes I’m super intelligent, but just when I figure out what’s going on, I get to dumb to understand it.

[mod says] The question might have reappeared because, when the revised version is approved, it goes back to its original place in the Fluther queu. If you are concerned about it being “lost in the shuffle”, feel free to ask it again so that it is more current/fresh (or contact the mod team to help you out).

Nope. It’s not in the queue as far as I can tell. I searched on the words in the title and got nothing. I think maybe it popped up in my question because they wanted me to submit it again.

It’s been like a week or something, and I’ve heard nothing about it. It’s sort of irrelevant now, I suppose.

Well, I just looked at the pending queue, and it isn’t there. So, it was either removed, or accepted. Not sure which.

Ah, you mods. You love playing God, don’t you?

That’s how they get tons of extra lurve.

@AstroChuck Why, yes, yes we do… (See above) :-P

Touché.

Now, for fairness, I will uncensor your quip ;-) Aren’t I just?
