Data lost in posts?

Hello,

viewtopic.php?f=3&t=9851

When I try to view the fist pages of that thread, I get empty pages until page 5 or 6

Is there a problem with older posts?

Unfortunately, it looks like many posts from 2005 and earlier are corrupted. Some display as completely empty and some display truncated. The affected posts appear to all be attributed to user "guest" which doesn't exist. Obviously, this has something to do with the board upgrade, but I don't know if there is anything that can be done about it at this point.

The missing posts are actually still in the database. They're just not displaying on-screen for some reason. There doesn't appear to be any physical corruption except that the user id and (in some cases) the date are wrong.

I think this has been fixed.
