There is a post on the boards called welcome to the mix boards done by a person called electa 16 and when you clicked on it just takes me back to the discussion boards - it needs to be deleted, cant exactly get on the post to report it.

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for flagging this :)
    I'm guessing you saw this under the 'What's New' section of the boards?

    This is actually bug in the software the boards runs on. Every now and then, the title of a reply to a thread or (very occasionally) PM will appear in that list. As an example, I've attached a screenshot of one we can see right now.

    These don't have any publicly visible content - we can see that it exists, but nothing more. They usually only appear to mod accounts and only for replies to PMs or threads that already exist.

    In the case you spotted, a new user was replying to the welcome PM we send out to all new users :)

    Because it's built into the software we use, there's not much we can do to change it. But we're keeping an eye on it.

    Hope that clears it up a bit!

    - James

    Ah okay, that makes sense now James. I was just kinda confused
