Yes, it’s been occasionally broken like that for a long time. It seemed to get particularly bad a few days ago.
For me, the MS150 thread works OK, but “Post a video” goes to “anyone up for a group ride”, and “NY 5 boros ride” goes to “trail condition south side trail”. Interesting that it screws up different threads for different people.
The Freshness column always takes you to the end of the thread, without trying to recall where you were, so it works fine.
It also always seems to forget where you were when someone revives an older thread.
True, the search feature routinely screws that one up, I’ve noticed. In particular, the first five entries on the left column will be missing a critical component on the path, causing a redirect to the main page.
Except for the redirects to Vikings, ninjas, Jens and Chuck Norris, of course.
@erok – Just verified that, it happens in both Firefox and IE. Type anything in the search box (I tested with “Ellsworth” and “Detroit”). The first four entries in the left side are missing half the URL.
I don’t think I’ve ever had the “click on one thread, get another” problem.
I definitely have had the other problem Stu described where some threads get yellow dots instead of the “circle arrow” thing. I’d speculate the board only stores so much user information (or is it all in the cookie?) so if there are too many threads active it won’t track them all. Any truth to that, Erok? And if so, could we raise the limit? It obviously won’t help if very old threads get resurrected, but…
And – I sometimes have one more “yellow dot” problem where the dot won’t go away. It’s happening to me right now on the “Epic potholes of the 2011 season” thread. Even after I read it, the dot stays. Usually it disappears, even if I’m having the other issue.
Just wanna say Im having the “click on a thread get a different one” problem. I click the bike racks on buses thread and get the trek thread. I don’t know if this matters, but when it opens the trek thread, it goes to my post. It usually doesn’t do that, it goes to the first, last, or last read.
I’m not having the “click on a thread get a different one” problem, but I can’t post for some reason. Tried posting to the hobby thread, and it failed. logged out and back in, fail. this is me trying another thread posting. no fail?
