Incorrect Thread Link in MD

In MD there is a forum called "X-Box or PS2" but when I click it I am taken to a completely different thread about mortgages.

I've never seen anything like that before at the ranch. It seems like two threads got the same topic number and mutated into a Frankenstein thread.

UBB (the BB software that runs the Saloon) makes heavy use of caching. Once in a great while you get some stale information in the cache. What probably happened there is that a thread was deleted and the thread number reused, but the older cached page wasn't flushed for some reason -- perhaps a clock adjustment (like the recent one for daylight savings time?)

I fixed it by posting in the "ghost" thread, which flushed the cached page and put everything back to normal. The XBox thread is now available for your perusal (not exactly the most exciting thread I've ever seen, but there you go.)

Thank you, by the way.
