WHAT?!

Please explain. How did you notice two-thirds missing? Do you know the total number of threads that were once there?

I haven't been on Topix for several days. Just stopped in today. At time of my post here now, your post says it was made 14 hours ago. Maybe what you saw was just a glitch in the system. Are you still having the issue?

For the L.A. Forum, please try something for me. Look at the first page list of threads -- the one that automatically shows when you go to the L.A. Forum. Are you familiar with the thread archives? At the top of the list, on the right-hand corner, it says "Jump to page". Click on the down arrow. See the scroll bar? Take it down to the last page listed. Or use the down arrow to do so. Go to that last page by clicking on the page number. Now, please jot down the following information from the last page and post it here in this thread. Last page number. Total number of threads. Month and year of the thread at the bottom of the last page. If you can, also post the name of that thread. This way I can compare it to what I'm getting on my end and let you know if there is any discrepancies.

Typically the La forum has a load of threads commented on recently, usually 40 or 50 threads commented on in less than 24hrs, now there's a dozen, that's a huge difference. Its been a month or 2, but there was always waaayyyyyy more participation than is showing. Lookin at the search result it looks like they've split what used to be one forum into several much smaller ones; east LA, west LA, etc. Too much screen loading time, I quit LA, not worth it to read a site that allows advertising for unsafe medical procedures, an assload of popups thatdont materialize until after you've touched the spot where it is, etc. Screw topix.

bbb, I was thinking maybe the OP meant that the threads disappeared. What you're saying makes a lot of sense. I've been wondering why it showed such a large number of users with no postings to show for it. I thought maybe that people were reading the threads more instead of commenting on them. But the numbers showing up above 700 people on the La forum with only a handful of postings just didn't jive.

Have you heard of shadow banning? From what I've read on Topix, it's when a moderator bans someone without blocking the user out completely. They can see their posts but no one else can. I thought maybe the OP may be experiencing something like that.

Thanks for the info on the split forum. I never knew there was a east L.A. section.

Google "los angeles ca topix forum", the search nets LA in general, with the subheading underneath. As recently as a few months ago this forum had waayyyyyyy more active comments, probably 50 or sixty thread commented on in several hours, they had to go somewhere. I'm mobile, and all those screen loads are too much lost life for me. Fb is bad enough since they made desktop almost useless on mobile devices, can't comment on a post, can't type numbers on a post(they're mostly quicklinks now, type "5" on an android in desktop on fb and get sent to a helpscreen and lose everything you've typed), can't even see a comment thread, just the original post, but you can't access most settings in mobile, and the app has so many permissions, they want to give you a colonoscopy and prostate exam while you sleep. Progress, give me a little less.
