That's a quirk of the software that runs DVDTalk. It sees non alphanumeric characters in usernames wrong sometimes. If you like, we can change your username & take out the ?, which should fix it. Otherwise, you can live with this little hiccup

Re: Forum Database Errors

I take it it's something in a new update because I never had issues before until I saw it after this last issue with the board. Not sure if it was caused by it and or the update but I used to look up my ID so I could find my old posts.
Not a big deal I guess but bummer it's messed up.

Not new, but not consistent either; you may never have noticed it, or maybe it never happened to your username. I know, it's a quirky sucker.

Re: Forum Database Errors

It's all good. Like I said, not a big deal. I just used it on occasion to find some of my old posts.
Appreciate the info on the matter though.

Re: Forum Database Errors



I'm having trouble loading nearly every forum on the site, continually being redirected back to the forum homepage. Dropping in random junk in the URL to break the cache (ex: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/blu-ray-bar...rgergergergerg instead of http://forum.dvdtalk.com/blu-ray-bargains-74/ ) still redirected. If I used the Forum Jump dropdown, I'd get a 500 server error. Using the date filter on the forums I already had open would be hit-or-miss.

None of this is persistent, though, so I don't know what to say. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It's clearly beyond clearing my cache or resetting cookies, though.

Re: Forum Database Errors

Something really weird is going on. Certain threads won't work and lead me back to the main page. I can't even click on the last page of this thread.

Re: Forum Database Errors

I'm seeing the same thing.

Same error in chrome, also seeing the force back to main forum page. Very frequent.

Re: Forum Database Errors

Thanks for the reports, guys, we're on this.

Can you tell me if it's still happening or cleared up, and please report:

1. Your browser type/version if you have not already
2. Is it happening when you log out

Re: Forum Database Errors

I just switched to Chrome and now I can read this thread. Internet Explorer 10 wasn't working at all.

Re: Forum Database Errors

I've been only able to get into this thread. As others have said, clicking forum links seems to just take me back to the main Forum page.

Using Firefox

Haven't tried it on IE.

Re: Forum Database Errors

I'm glad to know this is an actual software issue that others are experiencing.

Shit was getting weird over here for second...

Re: Forum Database Errors

Seems like it's a problem with the forum links, just keeps fowarding you back to the main forum page.

Happening in Firefox 22, logged in and in private browsing mode with no cookies.

EDIT: Seems to be a javascript problem. I saw it trying to load a blank "javascript http://". Disabled javascript and logged back in and pages load fine, but obviously with javascript off, can't click spoiler tags or get drop down menu to work.

Removed cookies and still can't get in. Can click on the one thread that shows to the right, though.

Firefox 21.0

Re: Forum Database Errors

I couldn't get on for about 15 minutes.

I could only access the Forum Home page and nothing else. Clicking on independent links took me back to the Forum Home page. I'm using Safari.

Seems fine now.

Re: Forum Database Errors

Still problematic on Internet Explorer 10. Once I click on the TV forum, it always sends me back to the main forum page.

I'm using Chrome right now and it appears to be working okay.
