    Hey Chris:

    Looks like forumspy has some issues with posts that were made relatively close to each other.

    Yeah, it happens from time to time. Sometimes it shows 4 posts mixed up.
    This site has so much traffic I think it's just par for the course I guess.

    It does it to me all the time. I'm positive its because of the amount of traffic this site gets - especially if two posts are made at the same time, it seems to mix them. Its easy to deal with though, so I wouldn't bother about it. It has shown up PM's on one occasion though, taht was weird. Got a pic if you want it chris...:D

    Would there be any way to make the 100k thread exempt from ForumSpy?

    IIRC he said it's not possible.

    Dammit. Getting rid of all the "68" "67" "66" posts would be really cool. :)

    Yeah, just the nature of the script. If posts happen close to one another it gets all confused, and sometimes (depending on how many people are using it, which is usually "a lot") it gets bogged down. I'm actually having site issues related to ForumSpy because people open multiple instances of it, and though I don't want to, will probably make it contributor-only at some point soon. It really does kick the shit out of the server.

    Regarding the 100k thread, no, but the upside is that it's almost over. ;)
