Errors and Issues - UPDATE

Post by bipolarmorgan » Sun Sep 20, 2015 1:02 pm

Most of these were being caused by Tapatalk coding, I've removed Tapatalk integration temporarily.

Also some were caused by an overload on the server, we are still planning on increasing our resources, but haven't completed the pre-checklist yet.

I will try my best to keep you all updated, there will be some changes to adjust for these issues and errors, sorry for the delayed response.

Thank you. I hope these problems are fixed soon. I can't look at any threads or respond to PMs without getting an error message.

Also I'm not getting email notifications about my PMs.

It's such a shame... I find myself visiting the website less and less because it's almost impossible to get something to load or work properly. I've been getting tons of errors, super slow loading and when I hit the "back" button it doesn't even wanna do that. It's really frustrating. Even the smilies take a lot to load and sometimes they don't even load at all. :|

I have to refresh every thread to show new information.
I have to read the new post, refresh the site, go back to subscriptions and refresh again for it to show that I have indeed read the new posts :x

I am experiencing slow page loads, errors and then when I go to view my posts I have to log in again each time.
Not sure if it's my Safari ( on iPad) being wonky ( with the newest iOS update, in terms of the page errors/ reloads) or it's the site itself.
Thanks for the hard work as always :tu:

Just made an app already. Getting on this website in my iPad or iPhone is annoying. And there's always an issue with tapatalk.

You always apologize and ask us to be patient as if this is unusual but this site has had major problems for YEARS.

Throwing in our face that it is a "free" site is ridiculous. Every site I visit online is "free" and not one has problems like this.

I can't even type this without the page jumping around. It's ridiculous. Somebody doesn't know what they're doing here.

It's frustrating and I'm ready to go elsewhere.

The site has been down for me for TWO days. I really do wonder why you're having such issues - there's PLENTY of websites out there where you can hire a freelancer for a fraction of the donations you receive that could get it fixed, so if you don't have time to do it, why are you not getting someone else to do it?

This forum works correctly 1 day a month. We suffer with down time, no access, slow loading, etc for weeks. Whatever maintenance and upgrades that are preformed, it's not working or lasting more than 1 day. I know it's popular, and FREE, but really - it's time to make a decision and PROPERLY UPGRADE THIS SITE TO HANDEL CURRENT AND FUTURE TRAFFIC.

I keep getting the fatal error. I log in, click view my posts, then I click on a thread and get a fatal error each time. Yesterday I couldn't access threads because of slow load time. Before that, every time I clicked "view my posts" it would log me out and bring me to the log in page no matter what. Each time I clicked "log me in automatically"

This is the first time I've been able to open a thread in days. I also keep getting the SQL Error. Right after Tapatalk was removed, the site worked perfectly for a day or two. Then I couldn't access threads anymore, just the forum index. So I was wondering if Tapatalk got reintegrated to the site and that's what is messing it up. I only access the site from my laptop, and never use Tapatalk, but it (or something else) still makes the site difficult and some days totally impossible to use.

OH and I forgot to mention in order to get any of the threads to update I have to force refresh, every... single.... time... to see new posts etc.

I am hoping this even posts because I tried posting earlier (had to access thread in a convoluted way due to the SQL error...) and I got an error trying to make a post

In case anyone managed to enter here and read this and fatal error kept coming up when you click everywhere; you enter a thread through the purple arrow beside the name of the last poster of that thread :tu:

Yeah that is the only way I have been able to access the threads, and even then I sometimes get the msg that the search function isn't available at this time. And if I try to make a post I get a fatal error (even though it does post to the thread)

This thread seems to be the only thread I can access, and I'm holding my breath to see if this will actually post.

Coming to this site the past few days has been very frustrating. Another update as to what is going on and how long we can expect down time would be appreciated.

Is it such a problem getting stable servers for a site that attracts this much traffic?

Do you know how many stupid snaps and videos we haven't been able to comment on? :cry:

In the past 6 months we've received exactly 1 donation for approx $1 .... so tell me which freelancer I can hire for that, and I'll hire them.

by running ads......which is what you're doing!
...just like 95% of other sites do!
