Yes, sorry about that @jaearess - as Belthazar said, substituting the topic title for an ‘x’ means the link continues to work even if the title gets altered. It used to seem like good practice to do it for all forum links ‘just in case’, and because it reduces the amount of text substantially. Unfortunately a few weeks ago a bug appeared where new tabs in Chrome fail to load (the too many redirects error).
I also find it incredibly annoying… when I get home I could alter the links for these discussion threads, because I guess we’re confident that these titles won’t change. Hopefully the bug will be fixed at some point though, because it’s impossible to create a stable link to things like the Book Club home thread otherwise D:
