I traced it to an issue with Technorati - I've pulled their code for now, since they seem to think The W and The 7 are the same board anyway (which they are, but they aren't) and their stats for us are all mugged up anyway. We should be back to peppy posting when you start a new thread, so please don't hit that button five times thinking it'll make it go faster. ;-)
Sorta - the board thought you didn't have a cookie. And, technically, you didn't! If I have everything set correctly, the bots should relist all their entries just like they did with the LAST name change.
