Or is it just me?

Bit puzzled...

I mean, Lyse Doucet is awesome (and Canadian grin ) but it's a thread from 2014.

How odd. I thought you meant someone had revived a zombie thread, hence it being pushed up into Trending. But ISWYM, the last post on it was December last year. Most peculiar confused

I keep saying - it's the security services doing an online dead drop!

doesn't miss spooks in an entirely visceral manner at all oh no

Hmm. That's very odd indeed. Was it only showing up for a short while? We didn't catch it in Trending, but we'll have a word with our Tech team to see what they make of it.

Thanks for letting us know.

Very odd.

Yikes I think I broke mumsnet. I did a search on Lyse Doucet last night on google after DH and I were chatting about her accent and the first thing that came up was a mumsnet thread. Clicked on it. Next thing I know, it's in trending and I thought, how funny, other people must be wondering. But it hadn't been posted on. [spooked] I nearly put something in site stuff last night but couldn't be arsed to type on the tablet.

Is Trending broken? I saw the Lyse Doucet zombie thread yesterday, and now my Trending is showing a thread that was deleted this morning ("to think if your son is autistic")... What's going on??

EcclefechanTart Thu 29-Oct-15 15:22:07

Look! Why is this "trending" at 15.20 when it was deleted about 5 hours ago?

Boo00100001 Thu 29-Oct-15 15:38:07

ahhh - Colin just wants attention!

Trending is broken - it hasn't changed all day.

GruntledOne Thu 29-Oct-15 18:11:13

I must say, I thought MNers must be getting a tad obsessive if they've been discussing the same 5 subjects frantically all day!

ChopOrNot Thu 29-Oct-15 18:20:59

Yep, trending has said the same all afternoon - same as this morning.

lifesalongsong Thu 29-Oct-15 18:22:59

I started thread about exactly the same problem a few weeks ago.

I was asked to try and get a screen grab but, of course, I haven't seen one since smile

Trending has never been right since it stopped being Most Active.

Just saying...

Boo00100001 Thu 29-Oct-15 18:39:24

But "Trending" is hip and down with all the cool kids and schnazzles moving

ChopOrNot Thu 29-Oct-15 18:43:34

There is surely only so much interest in washing pillows and duvets....

vindscreenviper Thu 29-Oct-15 18:49:09

I'm waiting for Trending to be changed to On Fleek grin

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Thu 29-Oct-15 18:57:17

On Fleek?

Boo00100001 Thu 29-Oct-15 19:03:05

Well, they do have some questionable choices for "Discussion of the day" which I can only presume is someone's job at MNHQ to pick them...!

Maybe we're all boring farts!

FruVikingessOla Thu 29-Oct-15 19:48:18

Hearts, I think that 'on fleek' only makes sense to those who are about 30+ years younger than we are? I still don't understand it!

MovingOnUpMovingOnOut Thu 29-Oct-15 20:06:26

If I was 30 years younger I'd be at preschool. I still don't understand sad

vindscreenviper Thu 29-Oct-15 20:27:11

Sorry to leave you hanging Hearts

try this thread for 'on fleek' and other yoof speak grin

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Thu 29-Oct-15 20:55:02

My goodness gracious it's a whole other world isn't it. Great thread, thank you viper.

My Trending seems to be behaving itself now, although not updating all that often.

Boo I have often thought that a good prize for a MN competition would be that you get to pick the DoDs grin
