Hello

I have a suggestion to fix one thing, but I have no idea how it should be done.

So anyway, I often see some members who receive an award for a thread. Hawks puts a link in the description of the award as a reason for the award. Now if he thinks he was worth it, it means the thread was really helpful. The thing is that most of the links are dead, usually I receive this message: "An invalid search was specified. Please go back and try again."

Can you somehow fix this?

Sincerely
Rational.

I agree, this would be nice.

But if a thread is gone, it's gone. Some people remove their own threads. [1] And some threads are being removed by the staff.

It's either the thread got deleted somehow or the url has a special char so it sometimes show "%" instead of the actual char, thus it takes you to an error page.

The only thing Hawk could do is to make sure the link works first incase if it has any special chars or such.

As for the deleted threads, he can't really do anything about it.

Make sure to read the forum rules: here

Please leave a reply and keep my threads alive for others to find and benefit from. Don't just leave a thanks because others need help too.

I totally agree with you.

This really sucks, can this be somehow automated? Checking every link would a pain in the ass, I am not even talking about the already big amount of work Hawk has to do....

No, nothing can be done in this regards.
The award given in past is for their old contribution, if the thread is removed in future it may be done by that member or the staff. But in any case the user posted a useful thread for elites and we always thank users for any contribution done in present or past.
