Badge link goes to private message

This is currently listed under one of the badges:

Moderation Shenanigans is a thread only readable by staff. Not a big deal in this case, but it could be a really big deal if the wrong thread gets listed under some badge for all the world to see.

Just a heads-up.

lol! It’s a private message, in fact. What a quirk. Thanks, I"ll fix that!

Ohhhh… that could have been really bad.

Normal participants can’t see mod only threads. I had a panic attack the other night and had @Twinkle_Toes_the_Berserker check for me because there could have been a very bad issue if that was not standard.

Stop looking at my screen!

Go sit by KB then!

No Way!

Generally speaking others can’t see posts they don’t have access to. A badge being granted for a message in a PM thread is one really odd exception to that rule.

The reason it happens is that PM threads are just regular threads with restricted access stored internally in a special category.
