    I don't yet know what happened. Hopefully, Raymor can restore it from a backup.

    I bet when we find Paul Nolan he has the trading post and a whole lot of ball point pens

    Yeah, I noticed that when I tried to reply to a thread.
    At first I thought it was a fluke until I saw this thread... :'(

    When I saw this thread, I thought you might be getting rid of it on purpose...

    The Trading Post has been traded for a Handal Jr. and an almost full box of .380 Silvertips.

    That sounds like a pretty good deal, Pancho Villa must have ended up with it!!!

    Funny thing is there's 109 pages of......nothing! Weird huh?? Kind of like that movie "Contact" with Jody Foster, she was transported to another world but the video equipment she had with her recorded 18 hours of nothing, but she was never transported they said. :-? :-? :-? Is this a new episode of the "Twlight Zone" maybe??? ;)

    Maybe it's still there but "Big Brother" makes it look like we see 109 pages of nothing. ;D

    Trading post erased?

    I just wanted to see if the problem with the trading post was solved. The reason why I ask this is because earlier today when I visited the trading post, I had administrator rights. I had the option to move, remove, etc. Of course, I didn't ::) It showed boxes that I could select to make these changes plus showed that I was an administrator. Could others have this ability? Maybe someone else had these rights also and erased everything? Something is fishy here. O-well. Just wondering.

    Yea, Raymor says it's a cache issue.  He may soon be replacing the cache system with something better and less prone to such issues. We'll see what else we can come up with regarding the many threads that are still MIA.

    Re: Trading post erased?

    Your "admin status" results from a mod that Raymor did to speed page loading.  What you are seeing is residual from the last person to visit the page, in that case, a moderator/admin.  However, the forum knows who you are.  If had clicked one of those buttons, you would have gotten an error message essentially saying "not authorized", etc.  In other words, it would not work, so no one "erased" the forum.  It is a cache issue.  

    There is a thread on the TP situation in the Admin Forum.  In fact, I'm going to move this thread to that forum and then splice it to the existing thread.

    I'm not sure what happened to the trading post forum,
    though my guess is a bug in the script related to two
    people posting at the exact same time. I'm pretty sure
    this one is NOT cache related like some of our more
    minor issues are. Anyway I restored the last few weeks
    of posts.

    FYI, from the looks of things it appears that I now have admin privleges in the Trading Post. There is a place for me to sticky, remove, move threads, etc. I am sure this is a glitch and I won't mess with anything.

    <EDIT> Just read Reply #14 from TX. I guess there is nothing to worry about.
