Contact form bumpiness

Just a quick heads up: we've had a little trouble with some of our email list stuff recently; some contact form messages haven't gotten through in the last 2-3 days. Should be rectified soon, and now that we're aware we can get at the messages server-side so we can respond promptly and catch up on the backlog, but if you were getting radio silence over the weekend that's what's been up. Sorry about that!

A whale of a thread

I'm trying to follow the 4000+ comment election thread, and it's getting really difficult. Links are not where they look like they are, lines of text are duplicated and overwritten. Now, in addition to the jumping-links behavior, I'm having trouble scrolling. The page will just sit there as I wheel, then jump a couple of screens, so I have to go back, which also doesn't go smoothly. It's becoming unusable. [more inside]

Fanfare posts showing as deleted but aren't

There are posts in Fanfare showing as deleted, but there is no deletion reason showing, and if I click on them they are open for comments. Currently, Two-Lane Blacktop, Horror Club: Calvaire, and Shut Up And Drive show as deleted (from the top few posts.) Firfefox 44.0, Ubuntu latest version. (I have clicked for community input to see if anyone else has this issue on other browsers and OS's.)

Antivirus won't let me connect with Blue or Green

This is the only way my ESET NOD32 Antivirus program will let me communicate with MF right now. Whenever I try to open something on MeFi or AskMeFi -- or the Contact a Moderator page -- I get a notice that the connection has been terminated because of a JS/ScrInject.B trojan. I was doing fine reading the past 24 hours of MeFi until just before posting this. Can anyone confirm there's a problem, or has my antivirus program gotten out of hand?

Professional Ghost Mode!

Is it me or has the CSS magically turned all links transparent? [more inside]

Help Test Android Orientation Update

The Modern theme has long been plagued with a bug on Android phones where it bounces you to the top when the orientation changes. We're trying to improve that and could use some help testing it. [more inside]

Modern/Redesign Bugs

o Pagination is funny, I need and expect the last line of the previous page to be the first line of my next page.
o View magnification acts oddly/inconsistently. For a while, I thought I was hitting the touchpad on my laptop, but it's not me.

So, it's back to Classic for me.
Anyone else seen these problems?

Anyone having problems posting comments?

I am really frequently getting "Error—Comment Post Not Found" messages when attempting to post replies on the blue. Anyone else having similar problems? (I recognize the irony of asking this when it will be difficult for people to respond...)

Firefox is not loading full pages

I've recently switched back to using Firefox as my main browser. I've noticed there are a few web pages that don't load completely, and either content is missing or functionality is broken. I could probably live with it, but... the site I see it the most on is Metafilter. This can not stand! Details Inside... [more inside]

Dating Your Checks and Checking Your Dates

Happy New Year! The MeFi FAQ says "On the footer of every MetaFilter page is: © 1999-2014 MetaFilter Network Inc. All posts are © their original authors." Which is perfectly accurate; the copyright date hasn't been changed to 2015 yet. Just saying.
