What does this mean? It was at the end of a question I asked and was never answered

This reply has been minimised due to a negative Relevancy Score.

The following is what appeared as your reply - whether you meant this, or there was a problem between what you had actually typed, and what was sent.

(unknown source)

EDIT: I don't know why it gives "unknown source" (normally gives username and date posted), but it is your reply on the following thread:

http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/640...

As the original poster of that thread had a problem with System Restore, your reply, surprisingly, was seen as not relevant to helping solve their problem, and received 4 thumbs down (negative "points") from readers (see bottom right of your/any reply).

When a reply receives more than 2 thumbs down (i.e. -2 points), the reply box is minimised, because of this negative score, hence the message.

Readers can always see what was written on a minimised reply by clicking on the "[+]", on the right.

If you click on "About", written in blue on the left (towards the top) of the forum page, it will give full details - see the following sub- heading:
"Replies - relevancy score".

In general, unless you are directly responding to the problem in a thread - and not just tagging-on with your own similar problem - it is always better to start your own, to avoid any possible confusion.

TiMow

EDIT (again): Your minimised reply is on a thread created by username "quiggley", who signs herself as "Nancy" - is this just coincidence, or are you one and the same - on a different PC, with a different username?

Hello Nancy and TiMow ,

I have replied to the other "Nancy" thread and rectified the -ve voting which seems very harsh , but maybe understandable with all the recent spam .

If you lose or change the quote and /quote [] boxes when you edit a quote or if you create your own quote with the boxes (same as for bold or italic editing you get the

unknown
source reference .

Hope that helps .

Take care

Anthony

Hi Anthony

It just seemed strange - I did what I have previously done:

- open the relevant thread, in another tab
- hit the quote button,
- highlight and copy (entire contents of box),
- paste on the reply I was writing, without any editing.

When I've done this in the past, all the username and date details were reproduced.

Just had a quick look for an example, from my previous posts, but can't instantly find one.

Regards

TiMow

It is the copy and paste from another thread that likely caused your problem or at least a part of the first quoye [] missing :

I'm now scratching my head - I was convinced that I've done this in the past - maybe just dreamt it.

EDIT: only seems to work when copied and pasted from within the same thread (not direct use of quote, though)

Sorry Nancy - your in-box will be overflowing, with us messing about.

I simply removed the letter/number from the opening quote[] box in the quote before I copied it to the second content reply box on this thread - i could have done the same here as well .

Like this - if it works - if not I'm going to leave it.
