The "NO SUCH PAGE EXISTS" message-- Why?


About 10 minutes ago, I clicked on a few peoples' personal bios and wanted to go to their "last public posts".

When I did this for keys1 and a few other people, a "No such page exists" banner came up with black letters on an almost totally white screen.

Why is this, and why does it seem to happen more to those items dated before November 1st than those items dated after November 1st?

Did the administration team reset the threshold time of how long messages threads can be accessed in this manner?

Thanks.

Sometimes, the old Sarge moves a post or a thread. When that is done, all referring links are invalid.

I thought that too at first, but then I tried a few posts that I was absolutly sure that they hadn´t been moved(ever). And they turned out to be as invalid.

Maybe the database is getting weird. I still haven't seen your reply in the Live In Europe thread.

Yeah, I have noticed that too. You only see the name of the last poster on the left side of the chart, but when you click the arrow to view the most recent post of the thread you see the one before.

When I posted the one you mentioned(and a few others, might might not have turned up for others to see) I first got a "page cannot be displayed" meassage, and I thought I had to post it again but when I went back I noticed that it already had been added.

I did the same with Keys1 and ST but all topic-titles I haven't had in memory. I thought the posts may be are written on another forum which is closed now.
Forums which aren't used for a certain time become deleted by the runboard-stuff.

OK we also haven't had internet for a long time so it might be an error with the topic titles.

Check out the "please see this thread"(sticky in the purple discussions section) and go to "rabiddog2006"´s profile then click the link in his "last public posts" list and you´ll get a "No Such Page Exists" message. This might have to do with the acount having been inactive for a good while(about half a year or so) but still it seems like an error to me.

Mo... It's because something has been re-arranged at some point in time:

Ah, runboard has changed the links. Hmm the whole last-post-feature isn't much helpful any longer.

Thanks for you guys' investigative work. I thought I had gone nuts or fallen into the twilight zone. Glad to see it's not something I was doing wrong, but it is bothersome to think that a good feature is no longer functioning properly.
