When I try to look at a user's specific contributions, say, for example, their forum threads, I am presented with a blank form - the header bar is there but the list is not populated.

Sometimes I can see them, other times I can't. There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to whether it will show up or not.

Example link:

http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/browse/region/1?username=jen...

I am using Firefox 4.0.1 on Windows 7

Thanks,

Jenks

Usually the problem is limited to threads, and does not extend to other types of contributions (say, replies). It has been reported by several users already (but I'm not sure if the admins/developers took notice), and it does not seem related to any particular browser. Reloading the page again and again (in my experience, anywhere between 3 and 20+ times) usually takes care of the problem, i.e. the contributions finally appear.

Not a real solution, but at least you can see a user's threads.

It's been reported a couple of times now:

Unable to View Threads
Blank forum thread contributions page

In the 2nd thread Aldie confirms it's on the fix list.

In the meantime, if refreshing doesn't get you there (it doesn't always for me), you can try either

1. Going to the user's RSS feed (drop down the arrow in the avatar block to get to it).

2. Going to Forums > Search (rather than the general search in the menu bar above it) - it lets you search by username and specific forum.

Admins have taken notice, and there is a bug report in the bug console about it, but the programmers have been working on other site issues along with the general site overhaul/redesign.

Yep - happens all the time for me.....

I've just given up; it's nice thinking I'm the only one making any contributions to the site....
