Wait 'Til Next Year - or - You're Your NFL Team's GM! (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=357818&page=3&pp=50[/url)

I linked page 2. You'll note my post at the end of the page, #100. I made another long post after that, which got buried on page 3, which appears to be inaccessible. I tried one more short "jar it loose" post, which doesn't seem to have done anything.

Of note is that despite my post #100, the main forum page shows only 96 posts in the thread. (95 before I made the extra post.)

I suppose I could make 4 more filler posts, but I'd really rather not. Any mods have any ideas? (And if you manage to fix it, feel free to delete my filler post.)

Interestingly, if you reply with quote, you can see those phantom page 3 posts as the two most recent entries in the thread. Did some sock posts get deleted, did I use too much coding, or is it just random weirdness with the board software?

Wow, I've never seen that. The link to page 3 (using the page length default of 50) simply does not work.

However, if you try this link (changing the page length to 40 posts), you can see past post #100: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=357818&page=3&pp=40

Still doesn't explain what's wrong, though, but I thought you'd like to know your posts haven't disappeared.

That is bizarre. Clever solution, tho', PS.

You can also access page 3 if you view ED's profile and select view all posts, and select his most recent post to that thread.

Is this thread FUBAR? More like SNAFU. It's still recognizable. ;)

If you switch 'thread tools' to 'printable view', you can flip through all three pages, even with fifty replies per page.

Odd.

I can't access page 2.And now that someone else has posted to it, I can access page 2. Weird.

It's a hiccup. I've seen it a few times. Makes me want to put on my mod hat and email someone: "Post to this thread, NOW!"
