if you goto general and click on "page 2" for the innerflame vs speedfocus thread, it says post doesn't exist

any reason why? even if someone new replies and you click the new reply icon to see what they posted it gives same error

The same thing is occurring for the Current XP Hot Zones sticky thread when you try to click on page 2.

Yeah, a few threads are corrupt like that. It still adds posts correctly, but it seems to have an extra page or two that doesn't exist. Kind of annoying.

I suspect the reason it "Fixed" itself is there are now more posts there making it a legitimate extra page.

I show there as being 53 comments on the page, yet when I go to the second page I only see 2 comments. So there is a "phantom comment". When this gets to 101 comments you will likley see a non existant page 3, but at 102 will "fix itself" again.

I don't think it's an issue of a phantom comment. If you look at the sticky thread I mentioned earlier, it had 50 messages when the 2nd page with no posts was created. Senliten just posted the 51st message which is still on the 1st page, so for some reason the forum is waiting to post the 52nd post as the 1st post of the 2nd page. I'm guessing the forum is set to 50 posts per page, but I'm not sure what would cause the glitch.

The thread lists 51 posts, I counted on page one and found 44 seperate posters.

So if my theory is right and there are phantom posts (in this case 7) posting 7 posts would resolve it.

Will post 7 troubleshooting posts, on the thread if this fixes it then we know it is a difference between posts on the thread and the number of posts listed.

Hmm, yeah that is odd. I counted 44 posts on the thread as well. Do we have Enron accountants doing the fuzzy math on the post counts here?

I blame it on Canadian beer giving Ned halucinations
