    Threads with brackets or plus symbols in the title do not work.

    I think the title says it all.
    I have seen quite a few posts recently with (brackets) or plus+ symbols that will not open.
    They give an error 404.
    I don't think I am the only one having this problem so please be aware when you make a new thread.

    Any other characters or symbols causing a problem for people?

    Don't think it's limited to just those, the "I bought the game more than 1 year ago..." thread doesn't have those but constantly generates a 404. I'm really not sure what the pattern is here.

    Seems ... is the culprit. I copied the link from properties and removd ... at the end:

    http://www.goldhawkinteractive.com/f...han-1-year-ago

    and managed to get into it without the 404

    Yeah it isn't consistent.
    There are some posts with brackets, plus or dots that have several pages of replies that I can't access any more.
    A single full stop works fine but posts with two or more together won't open for me, even ones I am sure I have previously replied to.

    Chris combat GUI feedback post from a few weeks back for example.
    It has brackets in the title and I cannot open it although I have posted in that thread previously.

    Yeah, I can't open that one either.

    If Sathra can edit topic titles he could try fiddling with the thread I mentioned above (bring the number of fullstops to one or none) to see if it fixes it.
