Bug? GM Actions (management, not posts) bumping games
So, had a player that was removed from a few games tonight - no actions at all taken save for the GM removing the player and transferring their characters to GM control. Standard GM management. No big deal.

...and then another player in said games messaged offsite to ask 'Is <GM> bumping all their games?' Cue the o.O face from me, who hastily went over to the main menu to see if everything looked red. Nope, nothing. Checked on the old site. Nothing. Checked responsive on my phone. Still nothing.

In the midst of this, the other person added that they had removed the games from their sticky list, if that detail mattered. Apparently, it does! For them, everything reappeared and went red, for me, nada.

I've seen similar before, where removed games that I knew were dead reappeared on my sticky list, but I always chalked those up to the GM posting something in a thread I couldn't see. Tonight, though, I know the GM didn't do /anything/ beyond transfer a character and remove the player.

That doesn't seem like the sort of thing that should bump games.

Yup, that's not supposed to happen.  And I haven't seen it happen before either.

I can envisage that cached cookies might somehow cause flags to come up on new posts for the player who had been removed, but that wouldn't (/shouldn't) effect any other existing player.

Can you send an rMail to the moderators with a link to the game and let us know whether you're accessing it via responsive or the old site and we'll have a look ... but unfortunately given the game has probably already got new posts since, the waters are probably muddied by now.  If nothing else, we can flag it as an issue for jase so he can have a look at the code (particularly if the problem is on responsive but not the old site) when he gets a minute in his busy schedule.

Cheers ;>
