Fixed Strange Redirect Behaviour

No idea how it has happened, but my alert for this thread that was moved earlier today points to a non-existent thread (perhaps a redirect that has now expired?).

I've tried to replicate on my local install, but the alert always seems to be the correct link.

Any ideas?

The alert you received earlier, the link to the content takes you to a non existent thread? Can't say I've seen that before, either. What is the URL in the alert content?

Ah, I see... it got moved and then the redirect got moved...

So ideally moving a redirect should produce a slightly different alert as otherwise it is a bit confusing? Or not produce an alert at all since it is only a redirect and not really worth notifying anybody about?

We have changed the behaviour of this in XenForo 1.4.3 so that moderator alert actions do not get sent for actions taken on thread redirects.

I can't currently think of a valid case for where we would want that to happen.
