Recent Topics link on main page

Postby RogueJedi007 » Sat May 29, 2010 9:43 pm

Why does this feature not work? There is a link to a topic that I want to read, I click it and it says the topic does not exist. Is this a broken feature? Can we have it fixed?

The topics you are trying to see don't exist. It's not that the system is broken, the other links work, it's that those topics are not there to be seen. You can look in the "Deals" forum and see that they aren't there.

I have theories as to why missing topics show up in a recent activity list, but all of them boil down to a logic error in the code that retrieves the topics.

It may also be that someone new has posted it and it hasn't been approved by an admin yet. To cut down on spam they went to a new protocol of approving posts until a person has posted a certain number of times. It may show up tomorrow in the forums as a topic. Or it could be a computer glitch. I don't know, it's just a big glowing magic box here in front of me.

I'm pretty sure it's because of the new posters needing approval thing. I didn't notice this happening until other problems caused by that decision (posts posted before another post not showing up until later, forums remaining marked unread even though they had been) started occurring.

You know, seeing as how I just got out of that posting probation period myself, that should have occurred to me.
