    I can't find anything about this via search, correct me if it has already been addressed.
    Large threads seem to run into an occasional repeat use of the same post number for different posts. It has been noticed several times in the dreaded "like" thread. Example of this is post# 24940 here

    Stress tests like the one on the likeathon thread are really useful to find race conditions like this. Nice job for spotting this :) I hope those MPers who have problems with threads like the likeathon one can now at least see the contributions of threads like this during testing :)

    Is it possible that some posts were deleted in that thread, causing a renumbering problem?

    Anything's possible there[​IMG], someone else spotted another instance a few hours ago, but that one was at an interesting break, I'll see if I can track it down

    Thinking about this more, it doesn't seem likely, given the nature of the thread and how the general practice has been even mistake posts stay

    Had also noticed the 30,000 one - both MSPeconomist and myself got this post.

    This is a great catch. We received a report on this earlier via the report system (in fact, IIRC it might have been from kayet) and are looking into it.

    It was, just wasn't sure who the reporting went to, so I figured I'd also post something in the beta feedback:) Thanks for all the great work you guys are doing!

    I know it is being looked into, here's one more instance in a different large thread: 24961
    And another 24980 (actually two on that page)
