The reason the links are broken is because there are forward slashes (/) in the album title. We have contact the software vendor to find a fix. In the mean time you might want to try changing those to dashes (-) and see if that fixes things.

ahhh... so, I broke the forum! - this does not surprise me in the slightest

Unfortunately it won't let me in to the album to even edit it - strange how it was working on Friday though

thanks for your help

i believe one of the reasons we are not allowed to edit posts after an hour was to provide a sense of accountability for what you post on the board. i have never known a thread/post to be deleted due to some embarrassment that might arise later.

has this policy changed with the new management?

There has been no policy change. Generally, we leave posts as they are, but there are instances where we get contacted in private by people requesting threads or posts to be removed, for various reasons. There is no automatic cut and dry answer for how we deal with these in general, we deal with each issue as it comes along on a case-by-case basis to see if the request is reasonable and understandable and won't disrupt conversation (the threads are older and haven't been posted in or nobody has acknowledged a certain post specifically anyway...things like that). Or...mods can make a decision on their own to remove stuff as well, for various reasons. Don't take that the wrong way that the mods go through and just delete things willy nilly. It really isn't common...but I'm just trying to cover different scenarios in regards to this subject to help you understand why things like this happen. I hope I am not sounding too vague, but, like I said, it's not just a black and white issue, there are factors to consider...so it's hard to give a perfectly specific answer.

ah alright then. im just a little surprised that a thread was deleted because some people were embarrassed they thought vertigo was a good song or whatever. threads like that are a major part of interference history, and are really some of the most fun to go back and read. sure you chuckle at people reactions, but you chuckle at your own replies as well. im sure ive said many embarrassing things in the vertigo tour forum, but i dont want that deleted because it's interference history.

its just a pity that a historic thread chronicling all the reactions to a brand new album had to be wiped out. oh well.

It's not 'wiped out'. Threads like that are never permanently deleted. It can be put back. At the time it was causing problems and someone was getting ridiculed because of it, it was getting a little out of hand. But I'm sure once that all dies down I dont see a problem putting it back.
