Re: Other User Options


I'm back emoticon I know I seem to care more about the least-important things, but I'm detail-oriented, what can I say? emoticon

Anyway, what do you think of this idea?: Keeping all of the deleted/hidden post links off the page (as I understand why you wouldn't want to have them sticking around), but bringing back the posts that are still around to that page.

I'm guessing the change to "last posts" was never even intended to wipeout some of the posts that were still around anyway, so there might be a way around it?

Using the board I frequent most, it seems the cut-off date was between July 17, 2009 and August 17, 2009 ( this page and this page). And no, this board has no deleted posts and, as global admins, you all should be able to see all of the hidden ones, as well (I hope!).

You can take some members from before the 17th July and after the 17th August to prove that this is a consistent discrepancy. I don't know why members who haven't posted since the given dates' last posts don't show, but I'd assume it's down to a big update that occurred before August 17th (possibly introduction of live feed?).

I know this seems really silly, but it is nice to see last posts when they are, in fact, there. I'm sorry I can demand things but not offer any advice on how to do it, but could there be a workaround code? I know these members are really old anyway, but I love seeing last topics and posting dates emoticon This is truly my only real "improvement suggestion" for Runboard

Thank you for reading!! emoticon

Re:


I agree!, but I think you mean July 17, 2009 rather than 2008. I have also wanted to look at very old posts, from my own board, to see when an old member last posted and there were none to see.

Re: Other User Options


Thanks for noticing the typo Susa. I’ve corrected it to avoid confusion.

I feel better to have more information available than less and allowing last posts to be available for all members (at least those whose posts still exist does just that). If you’ve journeyed to one’s “misc page”, you probably want to know this information, so I think it’s nice to view emoticon

BTW: 37,000th Q&A post! emoticon

That's good to know! emoticon

You say that posts between July 17, 2009 and August 17, 2009 aren't visible in user profiles. Have you seen posts before July 17, 2009 in user profiles?

Re: Other User Options


It’s doing better than I’ve ever seen it - wonder if my comment was subconsciously registered by the senses of Thor emoticon

But, I think I poorly explained the dates. To simplify things:

ALL last posts before July 17, 2009 are now not visible.
Somewhere between July the 17th and August 17th, this issue stops showing (I’m not sure what day it is, because this is as far as I was able to narrow it down).
ALL last posts after August 17, 2009 are still available to see.

So there’s a “cut-off date” within that one-month range (and if you want me to try to find the exact day using other boards’ members, I’m happy to try it out emoticon ). If the posts before this date could be brought back to profiles, it’s make me very happy. All deleted/hidden posts make sense to not display, but otherwise they should show IMO.

Happy Thanksgiving! emoticon

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

Thanks for the offer, Brian. I found posts between July 22 and August 6 of 2009 that aren't visible in profiles when they should be, but haven't dug any deeper than that. I'll send you an email with some links in case you want to pick up where I left off. emoticon

Thanks for narrowing it down further, I'll have a look for a few minutes, and the email will definitely be helpful. But no rush - I can also look tomorrow if you don't have time to send it tonight emoticon

I spent about ten minutes searching today, but didn't really find anything. Should have a bit of time to better narrow it down tomorrow. emoticon
