Forums - Website Topics - I can't get into that thread anymore

I was able to get into it. I saw no warnings or bans.

I can get back in now, but it didn't make any sense.

The website code wiped the posts of John2290, but the thread doesn't recognize it as such, so it has about 15 posts that remain unread for me. Said 15 missing posts put you on a new forum page that doesn't exist anymore due to the wiped posts which is why you get redirected to the frontpage.

Try accessing the thread via Forum Index > General Discussion > Thread by selecting the second to last page instead of the most recent one. That should work.

Of course how well this works probably depends on how many posts per page you have (you can change the amount in settings). I think I've noticed some issues with threads links containing page numbers, probably when the person posting the link has a different amount of posts per page than I do.



Is anyone still having this issue? Otherwise may as well lock I guess.

Indeed, it depends on the posts per page number, but the faulty total post count of the thread was just above 3,200, so it was going to work for everyone the same, no matter if they had selected 10, 25, 50 or 100 posts per page.

And yes, thread links with a page number redirect to the frontpage if the included page number does not exist for the selected posts per page setting.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I have a feeling if we put this to a vote that there would be a resounding wave of cheers telling the mods and admins to kill the thread. I can access it fine, but I'm not going to get in the way of democracy.

Well not that specific thread, but some threads in general here and there. Doesn't seem to be any specific threads and it's been happening for a couple weeks now for me. Takes me to the main page instead. Only seems to be temporary overall. Sometimes if I go to the forum index, and click on the most recent page, it'll open properly in that case, and then keeps opening properly no matter how I open it, like from the buddy afterwards. Other times if I just wait and try to open it a little bit later, like 15 mins or so, it opens properly. Not a big concern for me, but figured I'd say something since it got brought up here.

Yeah. Seems to happen when we delete topics or posts within them. It's a known issue by the mods, and I'm pretty sure by the people who actually work on that stuff.



New gen, new influx of spambots

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.
