    We appear to have lost posts in the original iTunes Sales thread with a thread-merge gone wrong.

    It may have been due to some weird simultanous thread merge. I'm looking into it, but looking at the database, I don't think the posts are recoverable.

    Sorry... hopefully it won't happen again.

    I was thinking about PM'ing about this, but thanks for the explanatory note. And as always, for how hard you work to make this the best Mac community on the planet, Arn! :)

    That is odd, but doesn't seem to be related to the merging issue. For some reason, the forum index page isn't seeing your last post in that thread, since it lists Jon'sLightBulbs as the last poster (though the link takes me to your profile) and only lists two replies, while there are actually three replies in the thread.

    ya i thought it was odd too - i think i posted it about the same time the forum went down the other day for updates, could that have something to do with it?
    (any one have a suggestions for a nano case; that thread died ;) )

    FWIW, the poll attached to the new thread seems to be broken here too.

    yeah... I'm pretty sure that's unrelated, and has to do with the update. the post table was locked at the time, so it just didn't update the thread info. I can run a manual update on threads later tonight to resync that.

    There's a poll at the top of the new iTunes thread that is closed with zero votes.

    It looks like this was a vBulletin bug with two people merging threads simultaneously. Hopefully won't happen again, we're patched now to block such an occurance.
