I logged in to look at my profile, to find a recent posting of mine of an item for sale on gear swap. It appears that most of my history of forum topics Created has been wiped. The first thing I notice is that the oldest post ever, from 6 years ago in my case, is shown first, so the order has been reversed. And significantly, there are only two pages full of my posts, when there should be something like 10. This is a problem.May 16, 2018 at 9:01 pm #3536054
All of my Gear Swap history is gone. All. Totally blows.May 16, 2018 at 10:51 pm #3536073
So I just started a Gear Swap thread,
It does not show under threads created. This now means that I would have to search to find my own advert to edit or do anything. Not convenient. Not intended I’m sure but this is a huge problem for everyone who has something listed in Gear Swap. Don’t you beta test?May 16, 2018 at 11:28 pm #3536081
I’m assuming that only the main forums are indexed for the ‘Forum Topics Started’ list in your profile, though the threads still exist, since it’s been the same for Chaff for quite some time now. So when they moved Gear Swap out of the main forums it suffered the same fate as Chaff when it got moved out of the main forums.
Not sure why this is, of course, since “Replies Created” still includes anything from Chaff, so a different setting used for Forum Topics Started is all I can assume.May 17, 2018 at 12:32 am #3536101
Hey guys. The staff is aware of this issue. I don’t have any information about a resolution yet but I wanted you to know BPL is aware of it.May 17, 2018 at 12:33 am #3536102
Not chuffed at losing usability.May 17, 2018 at 1:13 am #3536115

Same here — all my “FS” Gear Swap topics gone.
If we use the ol’ “sacrificial first post” rule, and start our second post with “FS: Geary Geary Gear” or whatever, then at least it would help us find what our old Gear Swap sales posts in the quagmire of our “Replies Created”…May 17, 2018 at 1:22 am #3536117
edit: thought replies were missing too. Glad that’s not the case.May 18, 2018 at 2:24 pm #3536423
Pleased to see my Chaff history once again. Unintended consequences again making that switch a problem.May 18, 2018 at 4:03 pm #3536432
I just wanted to let everyone know that the BPL staff is working on this issue.
Please be patient!May 19, 2018 at 1:50 am #3536566
Y’all may have noticed that the issue appears to be fixed!May 19, 2018 at 2:40 am #3536574
Thanks.May 19, 2018 at 3:27 am #3536585
For Gear Swap, yes. Thanks. Any chance on doing the same thing for Chaff?May 19, 2018 at 4:11 am #3536596
So I was confused about Chaff when it was mentioned earlier. Two Qs:
1) Did Chaff disappear from your histories this week or is that something that happened a while back?
2) Are all Chaff posts missing from your history or only the topics started like in Gearswap?May 19, 2018 at 4:21 am #3536598
Chaff topics started has been missing for a long time, i would imagine when it was moved from the main forums, like what happened with gear swap. it’s only the chaff topics started that’s missing, replies are still there. IOW, the exact same scenario as what happened with gear swap recently, so I’d imagine the same fix would be easy to apply since you now know what that fix is.May 19, 2018 at 4:29 am #3536599
That would be appreciated if possible.May 19, 2018 at 4:33 am #3536600
I’ll pass it on to the staff (who will see it here as well) and I’ll update here if I find anything out.
