Urgent! Webteam - Major Site Problems!
This is the email I tried to send to the Webteam ... I ended up sending a shortened version by PM. Please feel free to add any issues I've missed!
I'm sure you already know, but just in case you don't ... there are some extremely wacky things happening lately.
See the thread 14,000 seconds for discussion currently in progress and JonnytheTurk's new Tunnel thread as an example of the HUGE MESS the forums are in right now. I started noticing yesterday that the times of my posts were out of whack. I tried changing my options to match what the time really was, but that only partially helped. That's when I realized other people's current posts were showing as being posted the night before, or hours in the future. I posted a reply to Jonny's thread right after he posted it, and the reply went AHEAD of his ORIGINAL post!!
Another big issue today is getting a message that you have to wait 14,434 (insert your number here) seconds to search (or post or whatever). Personally, I've gotten this error message while trying to submit a new post and constantly when I click on New Posts.
I've noticed some people (in the Site Comments forum) have had a problem for a few months with not receiving their email notifications. I've had the opposite problem - for the past few months I frequently receive duplicate notifications for the same post. Not for all my subscribed threads. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to when I receive duplicate notifications, it appears to be random. Mind you, I don't really pay that much attention to know if there IS a trend or common denominator.
People (myself included) have not been able to start new threads lately. Again, there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to when it will let you start a new thread and when it won't. I'm going to try starting a new thread with this email, so we'll see what happens. Sometimes it seems to just be a matter of waiting and trying again, then it lets you start the new thread.
All in all, VERY BIZARRE stuff. Does it have anything to do with this other new message some of us have gotten lately when the site can't be reached ... "Cygnus Media Busy"? Is a new server or something? Is it connected to the ongoing profile issue?
Can you please make an announcement so we know that you know about all these problems and are working on a solution?
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
Here we go again ... ummmm still
I suppose I could have looked for the 14000 second thread.
Oh well, whatever, it is 6 o'clock in the morning after all.
I keep getting THIS stupid message again when I try to go to "New Posts". *sigh*
