2013: Suggestions, Comments, Bugs
« on: January 24, 2013, 08:03:17 PM »
When I click Recent Posts I do not get a nice neat overview of the post topics.
I get the whole first post of each topic...and when combining that with picture heavy posts it takes a lot of scrolling to get to the next post.

And where I used to have 1-2 pages of recent posts I now have 10 pages!!!

Also any pictures that are on the left side blend into the subjects that are under the Dark Grey Subjects bar.

Is this a bug or a new layout??

It is also the first time that we have had this specific layout... (with the images to the left life that)

Does it act like that for all pics or just a few?

I think around 80% of the pictures that show up.

But I fixed it by clicking the arrow??? (removes all the left hand options)
And now have no annoying pictures anymore :)

Guess this is one for Kindred

I usually browse the forum by hitting "Unread posts...." when I log in, however recently it seems the time limit for what the forum considers recent is down to the last 3-4 hours where in the past I've usually seen it up to the last week or so before it "wipes" them

Is this a recent update or a glitch/option in my user settings I've missed?

unread replies or recent posts?

recent posts shows the thread with new posts made since the last time that you logged in.
unread replies shows any threads which you have posted in that have unread posts (by you) in them


recent posts was, for a short time set up to be the action=recent which only shows the last 100 posts or so, regardless of read-status.

I'm talking about recent unread posts

I know what the difference between the two buttons is but for whatever reason these last few days something seems to have changed

It's dropping off posts that I haven't read yet (I always tell it to log me in forever)

Perhaps it's now doing what it should be doing, but as I said, something is different these last few days

nothing has changed on the site in the last several weeks (not since the last major design change).
As I said, it only displays new posts since your last LOGIN.
If you want it to display ALL unread posts, then add ;all to the end of the URL.

Not sure if this is the right place for this, but for the last couple of weeks the site has been reaaalllly slooooow for me- access, refreshes, updates etc. The rest of the internet works fine for me. It is so bad that I will click a link and go surf something else on another tab for a while (maybe minute or two).

It is virtually un-usable at the minute. If you are aware of this or if it is just me- fair enough- I just don't want to discourage any of our users.

It's not just you, and it affects all of us too.

Raine, and Kindred, are both aware, so watch this space :).

I'm having a problem with updating my profile. When I go to "modify profile" it only shows me Account Settings and Group Membership, not the other options. It did intermittently an hour ago, but now it has shown me just those two options.

Is this a simple fix? I've tried clearing my cache but it didn't make a difference.

In the future, please use the modify button. Double posting is against the forum rules, and for that reason, the system merged your posts.

Ironically, once I posted my original question and checked again, the options are back!  ???

I'm even more confused as before, but at least I can now update my profile.

Hardware issues?


Not talking about the lag and general stickiness of the site but I've been having trouble even getting on in the last few days.  I'm guessing the lag is causing a time out? Is anyone else experiencing this?

I haven't experienced any problems lately, but, as we're all aware, the server isn't reliable, and is prone to having issues.  That's most likely what is causing the problem.

Same here I get the "site not available" on a fairly regular basis and have used "downforeveryoneorju stme on more than one occasion in the last two weeks. Like you I surmised that maybe the lag was causing the issue so didn't think it was worth mentioning as the server issues are well known. Anyone care to clarify if the lag is likely to cause a result of "site not available"? when searching for 40konline.

Funilly enough today has turned out to be one of those days. 3-4 hours of "database error, please report error to an administrator" followed by an hour of "Explorer (or Chrome) could not connect to". I must admit I don't mind the database error so much as it appears quite quickly. The "could not connect to" error is quite frustrating though as I have to wait for 2.5-3 minutes for the message to appear.
