I don't know how it appears to other people, but I was posting a reply last night to fellow member drugwash and I happened to reply and ended up with a database error. I tried getting back to it last night and couldn't so I gave up. Today I had a few replies but on my end, I didn't see them at all, it just appeared like I was the last person who replied. Now when I went into the thread, the last post appeared from submix8c. I tried to reply to him and no matter what, I couldn't get it to work right. I had another database error but then my reply appeared to go through...but then I couldn't see it. So I tried it again. It went through fine but I couldn't see it. Apparently, there's now a page two that I couldn't see and I have no page counter for me to skip to the different pages on the thread. I don't know how it appears to other people but I have two different browsers on this computer and both of them are acting in the same fashion. I think last night's database error screwed something up in it. I can't figure out how to get to page 2 now without actually typing it into the address bar.

That thread is dong the same for me.  I only see page 1 and can only get to the second page by adding "page-2" in the address bar.
Actually, there is another way, but it really just shows how screwed up that thread is.  If you go to either the main forum index or "View New Content" and find the referenced thread, you will see that Tommy is the last poster and there have been 24 replies to the thread, even though it indicates there is only one page to the thread.  Since the forum is set to show 20 posts per page, that is odd.  Then if you go ahead and click so you can "Go to last post", it takes you to the first post of the thread.  But WAIT!  After several seconds, it will eventually take you to the actual last post of the thread on page two, even though you didn't click anything else.  (I'm using a version of Chrome as my browser on Win7 x64 Ultimate, if that makes any difference.)
Something is definitely wrong with that thread.
Cheers and Regards

Yes, something is wrong and I work together with IPS support to fix those issues. Maybe, I say maybe we will loose some threads due to converting database to UTF8 encoding in order to install upcoming Invision forum version 4.0.
