"Test" post titles?

@Marjo @EmilieT @Martin-O2 we've had 3 posts in the last few days, all titled "test".

Any ideas why? What has changed on the default site settings?

@MI5 

The one I saw appeared to be posted by a Mod (forgotten name).

When I clicked on it, it was there for a second and disappeared. I got the impression they were testing the forum?

It came in via email which I have since deleted.

Oh yes, seen those and forgotten titles (I responded to one)

However, the one I saw this morning was deleted as soon as posted (as in 'The content is no longer available')

Re: "Test" post titles?

My question is unrelated to test posts by mods (unless they have noticed the same phenomenon).
It seems very strange that 3 new users would all post "test" as their thread title unless there was something filling it in for them?
I've tried various different ways to replicate it, but can't.

Oh I see. No idea then, though I agree it is rather peculiar.

You have entered the Twilight Zone @MI5 (for which the animated gif I have is too large to upload and share D'oh! )
