Maddness "Something Broke and it's Important" Discussion

Postby Azrael » Sat Mar 19, 2016 12:57 pm UTC

Sometimes things break during Mod Madness, and the (typically unintended) effects aren't objectively problematic. Bring those to the Staff's attention here.

"I can't read $Favorite Thread!" does not qualify.

I doubt if it is madness related, but if you do search for Azrael or Yakk or other username in advanced search, and then ask for the results by-topic, you get ... well, nearly no posts.

If you search by-post, the numbers are much larger, and contain posts in topics that are not found in the by-topic search.

The results are consistent with the egosearch result.

I only put it here because it happened roughly the same time as the mod madness end? I guess there was also a board upgrade, but I think I successfully egosearched post-upgrade.

Post hoc ergo propter hoc.

One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision - BR

I have no idea if it's due to the Madness or the forum migration but [sub] and [sup] BBCode-s don't work anymore.

I think devian mentioned the search index is still being built after the board update.

Madness is over and any other broken things, important or not, are therefore unrelated to it.

This thread is where to talk about the forum migration and phpbb update.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.
