yes sir working great... phew.. I was in withdrawls.........Thanks rcade

posted by skydivedad at 10:37 PM on February 23

Nope. No success whatsoever. Oh. Wait. Maybe some success.

posted by BullpenPro at 10:37 PM on February 23

What exactly was happening to people? The error messages didn't explain the problem, which is why I finally just offloaded some old content to see if it was a space issue.

posted by rcade at 10:45 PM on February 23

would get "having trouble adding your comment" page after hitting preview then post... early on it was the Front Page then the locker room then the whole sight... could still post links for awhile and could still do thread search or profiles...hope that helps

posted by skydivedad at 10:52 PM on February 23

My first attempt (front page) was successful. My second attempt (locker room) was also successful. This attempt was.... successful.

which is why I finally just offloaded some old content to see if it was a space issue. Didn't that same thing happen before? I emailed you the specific error that I got which is just as skydivedad outlined. I just received an error and IE crashed after posting a comment, it killed only my browser viewing SpoFi . It seems the comment made it though. That we grew by ~90 members during our downtime is the strangest thing to me.

Rcade, I don't remember exactly what it said, but it was something along the lines of, "We're sorry, we had trouble..." I could still get into the archives, still access the whole site, simply couldn't post. Now...if you want to know what was happening to people...well, we were going nuts! I did some work, I checked the site every 5 minutes, I re-read old threads, I tried to get decent updates on wtf was going on with Hockey, I played around with the Hockey spreadsheet, AND I hoped you weren't having to hard of a time fixing everything. Thanks.

would get "having trouble adding your comment" That was it! Skydivedad, I was counting on you for all of my Hockey updates...I knew there was a problem when you stopped your updates. It took me almost 15 minutes to confirm the final score of the Canada game. NBC site took 15 minutes to go from posting a penalty at @ 18:52 of the 3rd, to calling it a final. Drove me nuts!

Like skydivedad, I didn't know how addicted I was to this place. Rcade - thanks for getting us back on course, cap'n.

I'm sorry... what is this site, and why is it set as my home page?

posted by chicobangs at 12:35 AM on February 24

Yeah, what chicobangs said. Also, how did you knock out of my "Bookmarks" all the links to Jessica Alba pix, and replace them with links to Albanian roller derby?

posted by BullpenPro at 01:09 AM on February 24

Hey, you know, we need more Albanian Roller Derby links on the front page. Package that shit up, BullpenPro! Tell us all about it! Hit us where it hurts!

posted by chicobangs at 02:19 AM on February 24

One other clue, which erkno pointed out. For a while, I would get the error page if I pushed the "post" button, but if I went back and used the return key instead, my comment would be accepted. Then that stopped working, too.

would get "having trouble adding your comment" Same problem here. I tried shortenining my comments. That worked a couple times. Sometime around noon wednesday nothing worked.

These past two days really sucked. I actually had to talk to some of my co-workers.

Apologies to the campfire folk who must have thought me terribly ignorant last night when I wandered in and then said nothing. In fact, I said plenty - most of it along the lines of "post you fu*king useless machine!"

Hi my name is Eric and i'm a spofi-aholic. I'm glad the site is up and running again. the downtime let me check off some things on my honey-do list, but it has killed my urge to spend all-day checking the computer and looking for new comments and threads. I am Sofa-King sad

dano: somebody in the campfire chat is named Dan O. Somebody is copping your name.

posted by NoMich at 10:38 AM on February 24

Its my real name. I'm not copping anyone. And I changed my campfire name.

Identity theft. Do unto others before they do unto you.

I just figured that watching the US and Canada lose in men's hockey got everyone so excited/angry that the SpoFi server burned to the ground under the onslaught of posts...

posted by grum@work at 12:42 PM on February 24

I think 6271 broke the front page.

just tried to post on the video for the high school basketball player and it wouldn't even let me preview. got to admit, got a little choked up watching that. it's a must see if you haven't seen it

posted by erkno11 at 01:04 PM on February 24

Just tried to post on the video as well and nothing happened

posted by daddisamm at 02:32 PM on February 24

See, all this time, I thought it was the new waiting period that I never had to sit through when I joined. What a relief.

posted by danostuporstar at 04:46 PM on February 24

For whatever reason, I use the latest Mozilla and it's constantly screwing with me as I try to post, including: * putting the preview and post buttons inside the box * deleting text Any thoughts?

It's happening again... "We're having trouble adding your comment."

posted by dusted at 08:25 PM on February 25

I can't post now either. Luckily, I didn't have anything especially insightful to say.

posted by Samsonov14 at 08:28 PM on February 25

Ach, me too. And I had a good ripper all ready to go on the Bode Miller thing. Ah well, nothing that hasn't been said a hundred times already.

posted by Amateur at 11:59 PM on February 25

Get out: Me too! For the record my cat's breath smells like amatuer.

I posted a column two days ago and still nothing, and it said the Pantheon would think about it. Why does the Pantheon hate America me?

posted by wfrazerjr at 07:05 PM on February 26

Ummm, I now find if I try posting twice, it works.

posted by wfrazerjr at 07:09 PM on February 26

Sorry, we had some trouble adding your comment. Stupid glitch in the matrix!!!

posted by wingnut4life at 08:31 PM on February 26
