Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Post time travel

We're noticing in the D&D [chat] thread that posts are jumping all over the place, with post order frequently changing such that a reply to a post appears several places before the original.

    There also seems to be an issue with the last post on a page vanishing... it happens like:

    posts 1-24 appear. Post 25 and 26 come in nearly at the same time. Post 25 causes a new page to be created, but post 26 never appears. Post 27 is the first post of the new page.

    Sometimes, the time travel will cause a post to vanish after its' been replied to. See the following: http://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/comment/22919138#Comment_22919138

    The quoted post is invisible in the thread, though if belasco32 looks at her profile, she will see it in the list of her posts. Clicking on the post will take her to the top of the page where it should be, but it's invisible.

    I'm also getting invisible posts. I type it out and then it posts to a void somewhere and I never see it again. ):

    Usually if you go to your profile, comments section, you can quote yourself with the link and then copy/paste.

    Still happening pretty much constantly. There is no point during the US day when it's not happening.

    When I tried this it took me to someone else's post, rather than my own lost / invisible post.

    Does this happen in other threads as well, or only the ones that are posted to quickly and frequently, like the chat threads?

    it happens in any thread where two posts are made close to each other, usually within the same minute, although it been getting worse lately.

    So yeah, you'll see it more often in a quick moving thread but it can happen anywhere
