EGS Site Issues

Postby m2pt5 on Thu Jan 22, 2009 9:09 pm

The pages for NP, Filler, and News seem to all have disappeared, and I just got RSS notices on my feed reader linking to the subdirectory then d/. (For instance, http://www.egscomics.com/news/d/ .)

What's going on?
I also respond to "m2" or "Emtu".

All evidence points to a new glitch in the update system.

It looks like a few pages simply disappeared off the site.

http://egscomics.com/Filler/d/20081219.html <-- Works, but none of the fillers afterwards do.

NP is probably the same, but for some reason the server's running incredibly slow so I can't check.

And it looks like everything is fine now. That was an odd glitch.

I am experiencing a different glitch. The drop down Stories select menu below the next and previous arrows keeps giving me internal server error messages. It is taking me forever to get to Grace's birthday party arc using only the Prev arrow >_<

Still broken?... *testing* .. right. But only seems to be EGS. Candi works again. Poisoned Minds works too. Weird.

Is that "ya think" really necessary? There could be any number of reasons for an issue like this, and my conclusion was based on internal information. My initial concern was sabotage.

Sorry if my fake slang is coming over in a wrong tone. Looks like I gotta work on it. After all, I got it all from webcomics :3

Best not to hurl insults without knowing the entire story.

Code: Select all

while($servernotworking=0){
havenetworkgnomeshurlshoes();
$servernotworking++;
print "Thrown ".$servernotworking." shoes.\n";
}

print "The server should now be working\n";



See if you can spot the obvious error in that code. The real error involved double negatives, but otherwise the result was the same.

Well, This may not be an EGS site issue, but as of yesterday, I was getting spammed with over 10 topic reply notification messages for every first post made after me visiting. They were all sent in the exact same time, so I believe they were all sent for the same reply. I used to get a single one. I did unsubscribe from that thread, but the issue still exists.

That's, unusual. check the full headers to see if they are in fact the same email. If anyone else is experiencing this problem let me know okay?

More to the point, why is it the same notifier over and over?

It seems that others are experiencing the same issue. I don't receive notifiers, but I have noticed that threads I have read are showing up as unread even when there is no new post.

Ah, I was wondering if it was just me. I wasn't sure where to report it.

Today I received 15 copies of the same email notifier. Even after I unsubscribed from the thread, it came through.

Also, I don't seem to be receiving notifiers for any of the other threads I'm subscribed to.

The only time I think I saw the problem with the topics showing up as unread was while they were doing work with the server. It might have been some hiccup from that. Is this when the subscribed thread message thing happened?

Anyway, for some reason when I looked at this topic there seemed to be a whole lot of 0s in the post counts.

It don't subscribe, I bookmark. Does it give you a new notifier for each updated post?

Well for me, I'm getting zero emails. I even changed my email address back to my all-or-nothing email.

By default, yes. On the old phpBB2 boards, there was a hack in place that defaulted it to no.

The way it normally works is that it sends you a notifier when the thread is updated, and no more until you actually visit the thread.

What I've been getting is multiple copies of the same notifier (the exact same one, right down to the time and date stamp).

This is the thread that I keep getting repeated copies of the notifier for:

viewtopic.php?f=81&t=102813

(It's the "Ask Anti-Paragon" thread in Mayhem, if that helps at all.)

Oh, so you can change it to sending you an e-mail only once, no matter how many updates it gets?

And now apparently I need permission to post (assuming that wasn't due to my new post count of zero one two) Man, all of these problems cropping up in such a short amount of time. Kisai, please... just give it to us straight doc. Is the forum gonna die?

This sounds like the read/watched flags are not getting unset. Anyone who has posted to it, is the thread ending with an error 500 when trying to reply?

It's not just that. I just checked my email. I also checked it and emptied the spam folder 5 hours ago, so I know there was nothing in them. I had 5 new notifications and all were carrying yesterday's date, as if the messages I deleted mysteriously came back. This issue may not be with Keenspot. Unless you're using a different mail, I suspect that this is Yahoo's doing.
