I am on this Web site and can only see four or five threads in a city's forum, instead of the usual 100 per page. Do you have to join now to see all of the threads, or is this a temporary problem? What the heck is going on?

had the same problem. Very annoying indeed! Never had to belong before, probably a computer glitch.

Ditto here. Every post and topic over an hour old is gone.

It's no different for me by being registered so it must be a glitch of some sort.

And it's getting worse. A while ago there were five or six topics showing in my town's forum. A few minutes ago there was only one. And now there's none!

They may be doing this to keep people from reading some of the negative comments that end up on here. The people in our town have a very bad habit of doing that sort of thing.

They may be down for maintenance! It's a glitch for sure, don't worry.

I had them remove all the threads that I didn't improve.

The old posts are there somewhere, just not showing up. Header says something like "1-100 of 193 topics", so there's at least a record of the old posts...

Maybe they're switching to a new server and the old stuff hasn't been copied over yet?

Or maybe it's the beginning of armageddon?

It's a glitch...definitely!

If you go to your profile you can open the threads in your last comments. They are otherwise down for a time, I suspect maintenance.

In the meantime, I am sure we can all find something to keep our time occupied...like watch 'The Pillars Of The Earth' mini series, first episode free on the Starz website! Check it out!

All the city forums are doing this, I checked several and they're all doing the same thing. "offbeat" forum was okay . I hope they delete all the content and start fresh, I mean really what is the use in keeping 2 year old threads ? There are 20,000 threads in our city forum, they should start deleting them after a certain length of time or something.

This site has gotten way out of hand, people are slandered left and right non-stop, the gossip posts have to be brought under control! The racism, hate speech, vulgarity, and public defamation has got to STOP. FEEDBACK my fat a$$! I've reported posts till my fingers had blisters! I'm through flagging abusive content. In fact I'm through with this BS site altogether. I really hope it's shut down forever.

Now you mods go ahead and delete my post like I know you will. I couldn't care less.

Topix needs to get a handle on this mess. For many small towns, its the only way to pass on IMPORTANT information, esp. for visitors and newcomers. Local newspaper charges to view online & the archives is limited to 3 weeks. Can't even copy & paste what is on there or search. No city website to look stuff up either.
SOME OF US use Topix during bad weather to report flooding, tornado sightings and other stuff.
Get rid of the crap and you'll have a good thing.

if you haven't left, and are disgusted enough to try to put pressure on topix for change - at the same time that the aG's are putting pressure on - please making suggestions for changes, reforms, improvements (as tA calls them!) on the new thread :

topix reform specifics

even virginia was cooperative and made a long list of specifics, without the editorials. that is a special effort that deserves the reward of other suggestions, hopefully a bit more realistic and workable and acceptable to topix.

we can't be naive about their profit motive. and we may not know enough about their technology. but we still can have opinions, and if we agree enough, we could have influence.

topix has sense enough to know that if we all keep disagreeing and fighting among ourselves, they both make more money and divide and conquer, so they do not have to make needed changes. they also have voluntary free speech flunkies who think that anything goes without restirctions, and who do not understand the Constitution or the laws.. and think that they have a constitutional right to write whatever they wish on a keyboard and post it on topix forums.

I am as much a civil libertarian as anyone rational - but not a supporter of chaos, slander, libel, threats, obscene personal insults, stalking, harassment, and the very carefully defined area of etc. that needs to be spelled out clearly. etc that gets phrased as 'inappropriate comments" or "adult material" or "objectionable comments." too vague.

see the 2nd circuit court of appeals ruling against the fCC for being too vague in the bono case - when he said "f*ing brilliant."
I do not approve of using that word in place of every other adjective in the English language, but that was ridiculous!(if they fined Fox, maybe a bit less ridiculoous!- if they fined bono - very ridiculous - I was just given the link to his ave Maria with Pavarotti on you tube - beautiful)
