EQ: Old comments not visible anymore?Follow

Example:

http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=767

The oldest comment I can view is from 2007, so there's guaranteed to be many more comments. There used to be a list of pages to view more comments, but they're gone now?

I see to Apr 2006, but I have show 100 threads set as default view. However, I don't see a link to more pages either.

I believe not too long ago something happened and a lot of older forum stuff got wiped. I could be wrong though.

I noticed that if I post under a topic in EQ and then go to look at it with "posts" I only see my post.

If I hit the "root thread" button, the rest show up.

I don't know if this is what you are talking about, though.

Yea, Raolin, I had thought about mentioning that too, but from what I remember, it was only posts earlier than early 2005. I'll wait to what an admin says tho before posting any more thoughts like, maybe someone just forgot to put the multipage links back on the quest (and other pages?) after there last update. I had noticed this for a while, just never said anything, as most times I don't care about the really posts, unless I'm feeling nostalgic.

Yther Ore.

Its not wiped, its just that alot of the really old stuff is in the older format that the present iteration of the forum doesn't render correctly in thread view. Its on the list, but its reeeely low priority compared to everything else.

This, IIRC. The only things not here are old UBB stuff. I did some forum moves not too long ago, moving around a quarter of a million posts over a few weeks, but nothing got wiped; that was just condensing subforums into their parents and closed forums into =22.

Alright, thanks for the info. I really hope you can get it up again, reading old comments is so nostalgic. :)

Edit: Come to think of it, it has nothing to do with post age, it just simply doesn't show the links to further pages of older posts. On this page for example, I can view posts back to 2001:

http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=703

Still hoping for a fix to this. It's not really about old comments, it's just that only top 40 (ish) comments are shown. I've seen plenty of posts from 2001 for example, on items or NPCs where they haven't been drowned by newer comments.

EQ nostalgia is the best, so I'd love to be able to read old comments. :)

The "view older comments" bug that was specific to the older comments not displaying has actually been fixed in most instances. That particular bug you are seeing with the 40 comment limit is a legacy pagination issue with the older everquest items. I'll put a ticket in to get it addressed.
