Forum bugs and issues.

Hi all, We're opening a thread for users to give feedback on any bugs or issues you may encounter on the forum, so we can investigate and hopefully resolve them. We'll maintain a list and give input on whether a bug or issue has been corrected. Keep in mind, we're after correcting essentials rather than implementing desires. While good constructive requests are welcome, we do cater the masses in the end. This thread is meant for the forum only, not the rest of the websites' features (yet). Thanks in advance! KNOWN BUGS AND ISSUES - Performance. Load times of pages are better, but can always improve. - Double posts. This is inherent to the forum software programming and not easily fixed. We will however look into a solution that may provide some solace. - Several style issues need correcting (text almost fading into backgrounds on forms, layout of the right column on the forum frontpage).

Thanks for the feedback all. We noticed it was slow as well and opted to leave it be for this once in order to collect some logfile data for us to dive into.
We'll be investigating this issue (which seems to happen at set times).

Upgraded to version 4.1.10. Still cleaning up a few files, so keep that in mind if you may encounter anything that seems 'off'.

Upgraded to version 4.1.11. Again, cleaning up a few last files, so keep that in mind if you may encounter anything that seems 'off'.

On a side note, overall performance seems to be stable these days, the odd double post aside. We keep continuing to delete those manually when spotted.
If anyone encounters issues or has a suggestion to improve parts of the forum, feel free to leave a message here.

There's a button on your profile that says "send email"... it then gets sent to your email address. Maybe that's how? :)

-when I'm posting something and I hit "post quick reply" .. I get a message sayin "you are leaving this page, you sure you wanna leave? leave/stay". And then I have to open up the forum again in a separate window and see if my post got through cuz half the time it doesn't get posted.

Thank you QueenBella.

But beware anyway, is one of those African scams to get hold of your bank details.

They sent you an email asking for such things?:)

hahahahahah:rollinglaugh: that is hilarious! Whoever falls for that is a genuine idiot. Yeah, I said it.

Hilarious yes.

But some folk must fall for it, or they wouldn't bother.

Outrageous, though, that these people would try to use Writeaprisoner as a vector for their pernicion.

Yeah, Idiots fall for it. lol

This is sad at the very least. I understand how people may say, anyone who falls for that must be silly etc, cause that was my first reaction. However I have researched in the area of scams generally (for research writing) and it is sad to report that many many people fall for this kind of thing. Im not sure on this specific one. The people who fall for these types of things are usually very intelligent people, often with some sort of void in their life, although not neccessarily an obvious one and yes often they too have money themselves. What I do know is that the Ivory Coast is the most active area at the moment, or was at least at begining of 2011. They may claim to be in all sorts of trouble and need and yes Silas you are right, they do manage to draw people in. Sadly even after is it revealed to them that indeed a scam has taken place, they have been so 'brainwashed' they still fail to accept it. Love interest, millitary help, will help, torture, immigration are but a few of the stories used.

Myself, I truly believe anyone who goes out to gain monetry award from an individual that is willful has alot more to deal with when their time ends. Those that have been victims of this type of thing have my sympathy, for want of a better word and I would never look down on them. We are all vulnerable in this world and we all have a long way to go(as a human race) to becoming perfect.

But surely the idiots who fall for it are exactly the people who should be protected from it?

Damn, I got a letter from her dead husbands brothers last week, claiming she'd poisoned her husband and that they needed me to protect the money so she wouldn't get her hands on it!

Wonder if it's too late to cancel the check I sent....

Encountering the internal server error message again when trying to click onto most recent blog posting.
Seems to be a recurring problem with the blog section of WAP

I get that pretty much constantly.
I thought that it meant the person had deleted the post ... I guess...it's actually a bug.

Good thing you mentioned... I thought a lot of ladies had regrets and deleted :D

Ummmmmmmmmmm so yet again one of my blogs is destroyed by this Internal Service Error?

You probably should stop offering a feature if it's going to be complete garbage. I can see it happening occasionally but...it happens all the time (constantly when I try to see someone's blog I get this error) and now I've lost 2 posts. I would have used BlogSpot if I had known this was going to make them unrecoverable.

Extremely. Annoying.

Kirsty i have been having the SAME problem for days now. Tried to post earlier and create a new thread and it continually timed out. It runs slow, times out, will flick in and out and one minute it works great, the next it is crap again dong the same time out and not loading......sigh.....did i mention double posts and i didn't even think this was going to get done it kept on timing out more time after time......

It is much better, but today when i went in to correct a word, it said it was too short and would not let me correct it. I tried in two separate posts to just see if it made a difference, but it didn't, then like magic worked in another.... :dunno:

slow or not loading at all, some double posts. But it flashes in and out of that. Sometimes it's totally fine.

Yep, but I thought it was a proxy problem on this side :) guess it isn't then.
