I just tested the link and I received the e-mail. Not sure if there was an issue at the time you sent it but it appears to be OK at this time. Go ahead and directly message me with the info. Edit: it looks like these go to Mike K directly. I know he has been busy so go ahead and message me directly.

Re: Duplicate Posts for the exact title/subject ???

Those posts were recently merged (duplicate) so there is only one left now.

The green bar (online/offline) may have been disabled due to some database optimization that was performed due to some issues with the forum going offline. I cannot say if or when it may return.
