    I've been getting TWO email notifications for the same post a lot lately. Maybe for the past month or so. Not for every post, just some of them.

    And I just got the wait 14,424 seconds message too.

    This morning I thought I was losing my mind, new posts had a time posted in the future! I set my options to -12 hrs instead of -8 hours until it is fixed. LOL

    We'll see if that works or not when I post this ....

    Well that's weird. Not only did it have the wrong time on it (3 ish when it is actually 7:22pm now)

    Interesting that it put my post BEFORE Dal's!!!

    No. Really. That's what it said. (Minus the time-space continum stuff)

    Default 14,000+ seconds!

    First my e-mail notifications stop...completely, and apparently permanently. Now when I try to go to "New Posts", I get a message stating I need to wait 14,280 seconds before I can access the New Posts again...What the hell!

    Somebody out there doesn't like me!

    By the way, if you respond to this thread, it'll be about FOUR HOURS before I see it!

    Something is very screwy.

    Looks like somebody set the time wrong on one of their servers and it's causing unusual and odd problems.

    Dal

    Negative on the time thing, it is ALL gone SNAFU.

    Twould suggest a look at sort orders within the database thingy might help.

    Something like

    "Select * from Forum where Thread=111111 and topic = 'WhoCares' sort by StuffKnows Random"

    Could work.

    Gremlins. Gonna hafta kill the little bastards to make this all stop.

    Difficulty making posts, and I just posted in another thread and my post went above a previous post.

    I think the WebTeam is messin' with our brains.

    You too?

    Guess the problems with the forum are extending past the "Profile" issues that have plagued it since before I joined, and continue.

    I've also noticed a slowdown at times, along with problems connecting in general lately. Anyone else having a hard time getting on?

    Sounds like server issues to me.

    Stay safe!

    **EDIT** For the record, and just as a weird aside...this was posted AFTER Malahat's and Meck's posts...but it's ahead of theirs in the list. Go figure.

    As near as I can tell it is taking what you have down for your time and using that as the timestamp rather than using the server time and displaying it as the time in your time zone...if that makes sense to any of you.

    All times are GMT. The time now is 06:14 PM.

    That's wrong, since EDT is -4 hrs GMT. So it looks like at least one of the Firehouse.com server clocks is running 2 hours ahead.

    2) That mucks things up even more.

    Something about chosing your own timezone changed how the time is recorded in the database.

    Which is why Tests 1 & 2 are out of order with 3, 4, 5 relative to other's peoples posts.

    And without having my dirty little hands wrapped around the servers to check a few things like server clock settings, database settings, and running a few queries to see what the timestamps look like I'm not going to speculate anymore
    I think the server just probably needs a reboot.

    I concur. Been wondering why the time index for when a post is added has been "off" too. Even checked my profile and consulted with a phone book to make sure that the time zone was set correctly. Very strange days indeed.

    Should we put a bounty out for WebGremlins? Or are they just "Open Season - NO Limit?"
