@Drathnoxis Just a heads up that this fix is in progress. Should be done by the end of the week. I've got a script busy processing millions of posts and flagging the ones that need to be deleted. After that I'll delete the flagged ones, which are the misattributed ones.

@Drathnoxis This has been done. Almost a million posts have been deleted.

Holy cow! That kind of sucks to lose that many posts, but I guess not many people really read the archives anyway. There's always Wayback Machine anyway.

The search function kind of sucks on the forums. If I try to search the "What are you currently playing thread" for "No More Heroes" I just get a 504 gateway timeout error or if I put it in without quotes I get no results, which is false.

Whatever, just wash your hands.
Anyone else experience long loading times and not seeing any of the user avatars?
I've had that happen before. Right now its working fine for me, but I have seen that happen. Clearing the cache seems to resolve it, but it also seems to fix itself after a little time.

I've looked into improving this more actually but it's not free to implement (Elasticsearch). And if you look around, there's no ads on these forums so it's a tough sell!

Yeah, I can understand why they wouldn't want to pour a lot of money into the forums, not exactly raking in those premium subscriptions from forum users either, hehe. Thanks anyway for looking into it.
