Looking for leak

Lets see if i can discribe this situation, I have a 18 foot round above ground pool, the problem i noticed is that there is a puddle of water on the outside of the pool around one of the vertical posts that hold the pool up (but only around the 1 post not all of them). I have also noticed about 2 days later after it was being used that the water level in my pool goes down to the point that i have to refill it to run the pump. The problem is, this only happens when someone is in the pool swimming, it sat all winter and never leaked a drop, can sit all summer if no one is in it and doesnt leak. I have checked the liner for tears, and nothing, could this just be cause of splashing or is there a leak?

Is the puddle around where the skimmer is? It would have to be splashing or such if you are sure it does not leak when not in use.

No it isnt near the skimmer, its on the opposite side of the skimmer, the puddle is on the ground like its almost bubbling up from underneath that vertical pole. I am pretty positive it dont do it when its not in use, it started last year, or i just noticed this last year, when we went away on vacation it never leaked, and all winter this year i never seen any water on the ground, in fact the pool cover got a little hole in it and all the rain and snow water filled the pool up to the very top of the rails. I opened it yesterday, this morning i got in it to sweep it out i dove in 1 time and sweeped it out and looked at the spot and there was water alreading forming.
