There's been a problem with the Role-Play forum for some time now. It has taken this long for a bug report to be made due to the fact every member of the forum is a member of an elite team of lazy asses.
On certain servers half of the threads fail to be displayed. The problem first occurred for me one year ago. However, the problem was not as persistent back then and occurred infrequently.
Recently, the problem has been happening constantly on the Sloth server, and has now started to occur on the Gluttony server as well. Being on either server results in more than three quarters of the forums sections threads to appear missing on the page.
I made the sacrifice of forcing myself onto the most terrible of servers to obtain these screenshots!
This is how the forum is supposed to look. All the threads are showing. Note that I'm on Lust (1), a server that does not have the problem.
A screenshot from viewing the forums on the server Gluttony (2). Note that over half the threads are missing. This problem also happens on Sloth.
This problem is becoming quite a pain as it prevents users from posting in certain threads.
We have tried to overcome the problem by using links to get directly to the threads, but other errors are also occurring.
In addition to threads not being displayed properly, errors have been occurring for some users when they try to make long posts. If they post more than a couple of lines they get an error message and their post fails.
I've not experienced the latter problem and so have no screenshots or further information. But I will see what I can find!
