Possible bug of threads moving groups with no comment of who moved it

Hi

I've twice found threads I created in a private sub group in the main group without any information about who moved it. When I move a thread there is a comment that states that I moved it (usually back into the sub group).

Has this happened to anyone else? It's a serious problem if threads might get mixed up during a loomio upgrade, but if it's another user moving them I would assume that there should be a comment in the same way as when I move threads myself (and at least then there would be an answer, although it's still a problem!)

Hi @Jen Dot Com, thanks for reporting this. It's very strange, I don't know how to progress it with the current information at hand. If anyone else has experienced this, it would be helpful to know.

@Rob Guthrie This has just happened again with a thread that someone else created about 7 hours ago, and it must have moved in the last hour or two. We need to figure out what's causing this as it's a real problem!!

Thanks for letting me know. Any idea what activity happened during that time?

I'm working on this but I'm unable to reproduce the problem - I would love to know what actions were taken prior to the group change being detected. Any ideas what might be triggering this?

Can you please email the url of the threads in question to rob at loomio.org and I'll inspect the data and history to see if I can detect anything.

Found a cause! We've found that adding a category tag/label causes an immediate jump of the thread to the main group.
