It's because the link is being escaped twice. (NOTE: The display text of the links below are wrong because the forum software is broken too.) The broken link is: https://web.archive.org/web/20110705220201/http://irc.netsplit.de/channels/details.php?room=%23gamerfurs&net=FurNet The working one is: https://web.archive.org/web/20110705220201/http://irc.netsplit.de/channels/details.php?room=%23gamerfurs&net=FurNet Basically, the ampersand (&) part is wrong.

I noticed the forum broke the URLs (truncated URLs after the ampersand),

but I had NOT noticed the forum had inserted a semi-colon after the ampersand.

PiRSquared17 : how did you get URL to post correctly in the forum without truncation and without the forum inserting a semi-colon after the ampersand?

I had to use & to get &... very confusing to figure out how to escape these correctly, especially when you're trying to discuss URL escaping itself! It seems we've found escaping problems in both the forums and the Wayback Machine.
