Cannot remove deleted threads from recent activity. November 6, 2011 3:01 PM   Subscribe

Bug, or just me? Cannot remove deleted threads from recent activity.

So, is it just me? All the pretty fade-away stuff works, but then I go back to recent activity and the deleted thread is back.

Chrome on Win7 FWIW.

Thanks for the heads up. We'll investigate.

I just removed a deleted thread and it stayed gone. FF7/Mac OS 10.6.

Hmmm... so did I. Either pb is fiddling with things, or it may be important that it was the most recent thread in my Recent Activity.

Sounds like it was a temporary glitch—I'm not seeing anything off on this end. Sometimes if your connection flakes out at exactly the right moment something like this could happen. If that's the case a simple hard refresh or clearing your cache can reset the files and get everything working again. Sounds like you're all set, but let me know if it happens frequently.

Sometimes my toaster burns my bread and I have to scrape the burnt off. Can you fix that too, PB?

I am not as rich, handsome, or smart as I'd like--scratch that, deserve--to be. Let me know when that bug is squashed.

Did this happen yesterday around midnight US Pacific Time? That's when i saw a thread being deleted and then noticed that the FPP I'd made was published while I was in the shower.

Was it the server dealing with end of DST?

No, this problem wasn't related to the time change.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack trolls flaming out off the shoulder of MetaTalk. I saw threads being deleted near the Mathowser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to ban.
