Profile page mistake

When I scroll down the main page of the forums, I look at RMP Forum. Firephoenix seems to be the last poster there. So I click the link at his name. I want to see his profile... But then, I end up in Darkflame's profile!

What's up?

It's true, when you click on Firephoenix's link there it brings you to Darkflame...

Darkflame hack that, he's an Administrator

Maybe a post in that thread or another thread of the forum could fix that.

Well, wasn't it obvious? The link isn't to a specific member's profile, but to the last poster of the forum (look at the URL). And apparently Darkflame was the last poster in the hidden forum, so it took you to his profile, although as far as a normal member can see, FirePhoenix is actually the last poster.

But who should know there's a hidden forum?

I thought it was a known thing... Until a few days ago I even had access to it (as a local mod).

Not obvious at all. Most team forums are shown, but inaccessible, so their existance is known.

Unless it's not a team forum? Either way, my point still stands. Most sub-forums are shown but (possibly) inacessible.

No no no, don't you understand? Darkflame is the last poster of the forum of RMP and Firephoenix is the last poster in the 'profile layer' which is a higher layer of reality than the RMP forum. If you would click on a RMP Forum actual last poster it would have brought you to a paradox, in which you would click Darkflame's name over and over again for eternity.

And that's why Firephoenix's name can't lead you to the same level of reality (AKA Firephoenix's profile).

No worries, I like to think I can always give people some clarity that way.

... Why are all threads turning to nonsense lately??
