I realize some may like it but there's something wrong with it. Some threads are inconsistent and losing data.

For example, this thread on Eric Garner. Follow the link and you will notice that the entire thread is comprised of three pages and in the top right it says Garner (Page 0) for the location. The first post is from Pyrtolin and obviously references prior posts, presumably from page 1 but page 1 is no longer accessible. I tried several combinations of URL to coax page 1 out but no luck.

I've noticed this loss on other threads but figured it was just something unusual. Maybe I'm missing something obvious. Anybody else notice this? How much more, if any, is being lost? Is there a way to recover the lost data?

I've noticed the same problem. I'd guess there's a badly constructed solution for pagination in the UBB software, because the printable view (non-paginated) still has all the posts:

Thanks, I didn't see the printable view option, where is that?

It's at the bottom of the page, on the left.

We're working on new software for the forums. Hopefully all goes well and we'll be able to deploy it sometime this year.
