Messages gone?


After the last maint. downtime, the latest messages in the Companions Wanted are largely Aug or earlier. Everything after that seems to be gone!

The whole forum is like that

The whole forum is like that at the moment, everything is there its just that there was a problem with posts that had a language specified being viewed when the site language was set to something different. All such posts were made language neutral - this had the unwanted effect of refreshing the last modified date of those posts and moving them to the top of the forum. If you go down to page 9 or 10 in 'Looking for Companions' you will start to see content from Sept/Oct 2015.

Dozens there...

I see dozens of "Companions wanted" in - They range from May of this year to present. I recently deleted those before May 2015.

Can you give more information about what you think is gone? You see the pager at the bottom of the page that lets you look through earlier posts right?

As Paul said, to fix a problem with forum replies not showing up for people in a language different from the poster's language, we ran an update that seriously mixed up the sorting, because it caused everything to look new (because it got saved again).
