Ghost Pages Finally Dead?
Is it just me, or have they finally been fixed with some of the recent updates and reworkings of the site? I can't remember the last time I've even seen a ghost page. In one way they were annoying, but in another way they were completely random and unique to NS.
Only search barred results came up from 2012 and were people complaining about them not being fixed. Sorry if this is a repost...
Yea they've been gone for quite a while i think. I can't remember when, but it's gotta be like six months to a year ago by now
It was kind of a quirky little ns thing, but not in a positive way.
Yeah it was fixed a while ago. There was a member who had I believe over 10k posts had his acct nuked and it just screwed with a ton of threads, so it was addressed and fixed. It shouldn't happen anymore.
It actually had something to do with the rendering of the page counts. So when a certain post would get deleted at just the right time, the site would think there was one extra page when really tehre wasn't. Bam, ghost page.
Took a while to track it down once and for all, but Paul rolled out a fix a few months back. Hopefully that is the end of it!
Yup, it definitely was a small issue before his acct got nuked, I just meant the push to fix it was when that happened and it screwed with a TON of threads.
Cool, thanks for filling me in!
