    I have this link bookmarked that I use every day, just changing the date 
    https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/search?adv=1&title="03/03"&cat=72&discussion_d=1
    For some reason, today it seems to be including all the comps from Game Over..
    Clicking to un-include (Is that even a word?!) "Search subcategories," brings it down to just 4 pages, all 2020.
    Never had to do this before, so someone's been tinkering and more changes may well be afoot....

    I also suspect something weird going on.
    Competitions Time is showing it has 132221 pages!
    Deselect the "search subcategories" button and it still shows as selected, but behaves as if it is deselected.
    (note to self: "&subcats=1" forces subcategories to be included, "&subcats=0" to exclude them)

    Game Over and I won x3 are also showing as (now) 132222 pages. All the Competitions boards are showing the same so it's probably the total of them all.
    And, when your in Competitions Time and select any page over 78, it says "No discussions were found."

    I hadn't noticed any of that, but for a while there's been a similar strange thing on the comping main page. It happens at the top of the page, where it displays a link to the most recent post in the 5 sub categories as in "Comping Chat Corner", "Regular Comps", "I Won" and so on. For me, for a while, this often (though not always) displays the most recent post on the main comping page, instead of the post relevant to the sub-heading it is supposed to show.

    Has anyone else noticed this happening for them?

    Apologies for 'hijacking' your thread with this, GB, but it seemed so similar to what you were saying that I thought it might be relevant.

    This sub-forum display problem was reported in Site Feedback on 7th September HERE and has been acknowledged by MSE. It is on their list but it is not known if has any priority and who knows when they might get around to dealing with it?

    If you use the Sort facility on Closing date with the Open filter, it shows the correct 77 pages for the board. If you then click for page 77 then move back 2 pages to page 75, past the 00/00 end dates, you then reach today's end dates which go on until page 72 and all showing the ticks and crosses.
    (That is for today 24/09. Page numbers will probably change a bit on different days.)
