Anybody have any idea what happened to this thread? It hasn't been deleted, but all the posts in it are gone. I've never seen anything like it.



[thread=2200317][/thread]

(I know this isn't technically a complaint right now, but depending on the answer to the question, it will likely become one )

Could have been Spam?

Not spam, I was participating in it. And even if it were, SOP is to delete the thread, not all the individual posts.

It was up over a page, now it has “-1” posts.

The theme of that board game has been known to lead to hallucinations...

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

If the OP deleted his account, and all the posts had quotes from him, would that explain it?

Hmm, no. He didn't, they didn't, and it wouldn't.

Quotes aren't internally linked in BGG posts. They just get a little formatting and aren't affected when the original text/post changes.

This thread sounds more like a candidate for the Bugs forum.

So if you're just looking for information, clearly this is better fitted to the bugs forum.

If you're looking to complain... well, what's the complaint? That there shouldn't be buggy behavior? I mean, we all agree on that. Even the guy who's tasked with designing and fixing the site will agree with you.

None of us want the site to function incorrectly. There's not really a reason to complain about that. Nobody meant for it to happen and nobody wants it to continue or reoccur. It's an aberration.

Complain about something that was intentional or something that isn't likely to change. Maybe if this was an ongoing issue you could complain about it... but a one-off instance? Seems silly.

I feel relatively confident that, based on the nature of the conversation in that thread, this isn't a bug. I'm hoping Octavian weighs in on it, and then I can complain about it. This was a preemptive thread.

But thanks for explaining to me how the complaints forum should work, I'm pretty new hear ya know. shake

The user who created the thread has a lengthy history of posting in a highly antagonistic/inflammatory way.

This thread came immediately after a final warning that continued antagonistic posting will result in a permanent suspension.

I opted to delete the last "jab" rather than giving the satisfaction of seeing it continue.

The vestigial subject line is a bug - probably related to some connectivity issues the site was experiencing around the same time. I've removed it.

As the OP's screenshot shows, it was Dopeman.

Ok, so combo of intentional deletion with bug.

I'd like to complain that now I'll never know if a vet using marijuana to treat PTSD but also enjoying being high is objectively evil or not. soblue
