ZansForCans: missing threads from Page21?
Was there a problem with the scripts that pick up threads for page21 recently? There are five threads linked at the top of my campaign log which have expired from ezboard, but which don't appear to be in the page21 archive. (The threads in question are the first five (archive) links in the log). Some of those archive links result in an error page from Zans server, and some of them resovle to different threads with similar topic numbers (presumably you're using mod_speling on your web server).

Hmm...it almost seems like the new ezboard number caused a change in the thread numbering. It's possible the old threads are getting overwritten with the newer ones of the same numbers. That sucks.

Ugh... I'll have to check into it. Yes, the scripts are by necessity pretty fragile when ezboard changes things, but I don't think the board number itself should make a difference. I'll see!

Crap. Infin was close.

It turns out that ezboard wasn't preserving any CGI parameters on the URL after the number shift. So the '?page=20' bit was being stripped and I was being redirected to the front page instead. You can see a bunch of crap from page 1 in the Page 21 index right now.

It looks like this happened about a month ago. I'm very sorry for not catching it earlier :( Thanks for pointing it out before more damage was done!

I've fixed the script for the new board ID now. If anyone happens to regularly save the HTML of pages, let me know and maybe we can fill in some gaps. I might be able to figure out which thread numbers are missing with a little work.

Well, I can tell you at least 5 thread numbers that are missing (the five from my log): 3190, 3195, 3202, 3207, and 3210.

Thanks for the quick fix, Zans.
