Yes, but that doesn't explain why my own link from yesterday doesn't work for me today, when it did yesterday.

Maybe I'm just trying to find rational explanations for the irrational.

It seems reasonable that search result links would be time limited, if there is data that is stored in memory or in a database.

It won't be shareable, it's most likely a real time search on a relational database, hence the shift in searchid ...

I think he cried wolf too many times by deleting his account and then coming back. I'm just guessing here, but I think this was the final straw for the mods.

Have you had an answer to this yet Kim?

I can figure out most things by myself, but I can't for the life of me think why Siouxie would be banned? There must be some other explanation.

Yeah the search results are cached with a unique ID and will expire, that's why the links stop working after some time. Have to do a fresh search from the profile as BuckinghamshireBoy explained.

Not been answered yet. I know we cant talk about mod activity in threads, so I am not going to ask why she was banned, but I do hope admin or a mod come along soon, to let us know when she will be back.

So this is working right now. Is it just going to stop working suddenly, or what? I mean, I know I don't understand software but still.

BE is turning into the twilight zone. It used to be a community of (mostly) friends.

Your link does not work for me, and I am fairly sure it won't work for anyone else, and might not even work for you any longer, though I think it will. It looks as though the "searchid" value changes every time you start a new search, and it's possible it is only valid for that one search period. It could be a feature / security thing so that you cannot do what we are trying to do and serve up the list of a users previous posts.

Oh don't get me wrong, I wasn't asking for an explanation of why Siouxie was banned, not only because we're not allowed to but mainly because I just find it difficult to believe that she was banned. I was thinking software glitch or something.

Anyway, whatever it was it'll be nice to see her back.

And I thought 'They Keep Killing Suzie' was just a Torchwood episode title.....

Only that Suzie deserved it....

I honestly don't know the ins and outs of this, and haven't looked at her profile, but I do know that it is possible to set one's User Title to say "Banned".
