    ^ Just noticed this myself. Trying to find some of my posts comes back with no results found. If I go on my profile to find my posts it says I don't have any content.

    Seems half of my posts are double posts the last couple days.

    Out of curiosity, how exactly are you posting?

    I've only double-posted once and that's because I was impatient/not paying attention and selected "Post Reply" while my comment was still loading. I've noticed refresh rates are kinda screwy when your comment gets pushed to the next page.

    I honestly have never gotten a double post before unless I got impatient and hit the post button more than once, or had local connectivity issues. Been curious how it happens for so many people so often.

    It might be related to the mobile version of the site. It tends to load very slowly sometimes when posting.

    Using the quickly reply field at the bottom of the thread, pressing "Post Reply" once. I'm on Google Chrome with a Windows PC. Often times, I'll see several copies of the post until I hit "refresh," then it'll drop down to two. I'd say it's my browser, but it is happening a lot more often since that hiccup in the database a couple days ago.

    Going through my profile page and looking for threads I've started also leads to a message about no content found. My post history seems to disappear before June 5th.

    same
    Also, I sometimes get an error when I try to reply with a quote. Refreshing the page doesn't seem to help, but, for some reason I do not understand, opening the thread in a new tab and closing the old tab seems to work.

    I also have no post history before June 5. I don’t really care honestly about that as much as having the search function fully operational.

    Also have no search history to go back on, used that to find old ads to bump and such.

    But I probably missed this, iTrader. Is it gone?

    Ah that's a shame, we should probably come up with some kind of feedback thread to replace it so we can keep track of good transactions if there's no equivalent with Xenforo.

    There are definitely feedback systems available for Xenforo, TGP is using one. PM Alex and ask him to get one :2c:

    I just did quick search and actually got a bunch of results. Fixed? Not sure but it worked.

    I'll note, I did it when in the parent forums page. I think it sets a filter while within a particular forum? Not sure but haven't looked into it.
