Suddenly, the tag [gameid=xxx] stopped working.

[Gameid=1830]

Yes, this just rendered a ton of my contributions nonsensical, and I don't want to go back and fix all of them.

I'm sure this broke a large number of my contributions too... Even if I wanted to fix them, I have no clue how to find them.

That's going to break pretty much all Maths Trading as sweeteners have to use the [gameid=xxxxx] format for the OLWLG!

I use [gameid=xxxxx] in my trade condition comments in my collection and all these are now rendered "N/A". This breaks my collection from the PoV of potential traders browsing my collection and also when these comments are imported into the MT GL via the OLWLG (the process that I use).

This is bad. Very very bad.

Re: [gameid=xxx] tag no longer working
Quite a lot of links have gone down (stopped working) and then come back in the last 18 hours. I suspect this is part of a bit of programming at the other end as it's happening in sequence to each link type and appear to be temporary.

I could be wrong, either way thanks for reporting.

My advice don't do anything you can't easily undo - I suspect they will all come right in a wee bit.
