    it's something i noticed when i was attempting to look at older threads on the Aquatic Ape Theory, that links to old threads no longer are active

    http://www.thescienceforum.com/biolo...tml#post277965

    presumably this has something to with the move to the new forum software, but what concerns me more is : can these be fixed or are they gone forever ?

    a pity - it would have greatly helped with your idea of creating / populating a "what is" thread

    How does that affect the idea of "what is"?

    maybe i've misunderstood what you have in mind with "what is?" but i thought being able to link to worthwhile threads of the past that have relevance might be a bonus

    We can still link back to old threads. No data was lost, just that link format was changed. Every thread lives.

    I have moved Marc's post to the old aquatic ape thread, which had been locked.
