Not Actually Extremely Problematic: The "popular tags" page on the green is a tag cloud, but none of the tags appear much larger than the others. [more inside]
OK, I've tried fixing this myself, and I give up. Why is AskMe displaying text at a different size font to every other part of Metafilter on my home computer? [more inside]
I can't post on AskMe - on the preview page, hitting Post just reloads the preview page. Firefox 126.96.36.199. Not seeing any error messages either.
bug: can't submit an AskMe question. The final "post" button just reloads the page, like the "preview" button. Firefox 188.8.131.52.
For some reason the Ask Metafilter RSS feed quit working for me a few days ago. I'm reading it through Bloglines and the last post which shows up is from November 22, 2006 at 6:54am
. Is anyone else seeing this issue?
Er, is there a problem with the AskMe RSS feed? I haven't gotten anything in at least two days, despite MeFi and MeTa feeds working fine.
I'm viewing in Google Reader, if that matters.
I love the new tab feature, but there's a small bug with AskMe. When the posts are sorted by favorites, anonymous questions are credited to Anonymous Ask MetaFilter instead of the usual anonymous. No crisis, but an inconsistency that may distress some of our more sensitive members (you know who you are).
i am having trouble accessing my blog on the ask mefi thread i started earlier. for some reason i can access all other parts of mefi, but not that thread (http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/47579). its over the idiot roommate who has an internet girlfriend from alaska. i just want to let people know i created a blog about it since many wanted to be updated.
I'm getting a "Connection Timeout" message on both http://www.metafilter.com/tags/ and http://ask.metafilter.com/tags/

Sigh. I think the ask.metafilter rss is borked again.
I get this message:
XML parsing failed: syntax error (Line: 1, Character: 0)
with no updates for the last 3+ hours. Not that I'm addicted or anything.
unexpected text (non-whitespace text outside root element)
Wondering if it's just me, or a bug: go to my answers on AskMeFi
. Scroll down to the first answer, "comment posted at 11:35 AM CST on May-21-06", that is beneath the question, "I believe that another tenant has place an air "freshener" in the hallway out side of our apartments in violation of their lease. I want it removed. What should I do?".
When I click on this, my copy of Firefox goes a little bugshit. I can click on the tabs, but the actual display in the screen doesn't change at all, and a lot of the interface elements become unresponsive. I have to quit (not force quit, the menus are still accessible). I'm using Firefox v184.108.40.206 for Mac OS X, using the Whitehart-NC theme.
Is it just me, or is the AskMe RSS Feed
reported to be broken on BlogLines more often than not?
"The feed URL returns a page that does not look like an RSS feed. This can be caused by the feed URL being incorrect, or it can be caused by a configuration issue with the server hosting the feed. If this error continues, you should check the feed URL and, if it is wrong, subscribe to the correct URL."
Ask metafilter favorites go to www.metafilter/favorites rather than to www.metafilter.com
Is the AskMeFi RSS feed intermittently dropping questions?
When posting to AskMe, I get the message: "Your comment appears to be blank, go back and try again."
It's not blank, and it happens even if I preview first.
This was just posted in response to a question asked later in the thread and it seems to have been time stamped two hours earlier.
Is anyone else getting "Connection Failure" from the AskMe RSS feed
AskMe RSS feed isn't working. It's linking to MeFi.
The titles of the Ask posts are appearing at the top of the posts in GIANT fonts for me. Safari.
Really not a problem, but I am curious: I click anywhere in AskMe, and Firefox doesn't ever seem to think the page is completely loaded? I get the busy signal cursor, and the Firefox load meter (bottom right-hand in Firefox) never completes, even though it seems like the whole page loads. Buh?
Nit-picking: On the frontpage, the description on the sideblog says 'This sideblog keeps track of site news and metatalk threads', yet all the threads are from AskMefi.
On AxeMe, if I click "My Posts" (should be "My Questions"), and choose a 1 month time frame, it shows me one 6-month-old quesiton I asked, but not the 7 more recent quesitons (including one I just asked today.) In any other view, no quesitons are displayed at all.
Is AskMe down? Can't get to it via comments or the main page, on firefox or IE, on two separate computers. This is a new one - I've never noticed just one segment of the site going down before.
AskMe apparently trims line breaks from posts. I guess I understand this, but it would be nice if it also happened in the preview. In preview, my line breaks were still intact, so I hit the post button, and now my post looks a bit silly. Not the end of the world, but I figure it can't be intentional.
What just happened to AskMefi? For about five minutes all the insides had the "nothing to see here" page or a strange error page. Anyone else? I thought my work had finally gotten around to banning it. I started working on my resume...
It's broke again. The Ask.Mefi RSS isn't updating.
the XML yields:
XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Line Number 156, Column 18:
This Ask me thread
has the "Best answer" checked on the main page, but nothing is showing up in the thread. Just thought I'd let you know.
I found a few browser-specific bugs with the new layout, is anyone else experiencing these?
1) The main logo for MeTa,MeFi, AskMe and Projects works fine, except when you click on the comments for a particular post. Once you do this, my browser is telling me there's a broken image above the main logo, to the left. It appears there's a missing border or something that usually would fit nicely into place to make all the images play happily together. (I'm using the latest version of IE.)
2) In Safari on my crappy preferences-locked Mac at work, the default text color on Projects is yellow main links, white background, with my text set to (of course) white. I'm willing to accept this is just a stupid Safari bug I'll have to live with, I just wondered if anyone else was experiencing a similar problem.
When I try to page through my AskMe archives
by clicking "next," the same results start each page and some older ones are added to the end.
For the past week or so, Sharpreader has been combining Metafilter and AskMetafilter feeds, even though I'm subscribed to each separately. In other words, my Ask Metafilter feed (http://ask.metafilter.com/rss.xml) is picking up Metafilter threads, and my Metafilter feed (http://xml.metafilter.com/rss.xml) is picking up AskMe feeds. Things used to work properly, and I haven't changed anything at my end. Is anyone else seeing this?
Ask keeps timing out on me when I do searches for anything except "questions only". I get: "The request has exceeded the allowable time limit Tag: CFQUERY..." In case it's relevant, I'm searching for stars of the lid. I'm on Safari 2.0.
I tried to post a question in AskMe, but it wouldn't show up. When I tried to post again, it said: sorry, you already asked a question this week. Catch 22, or is there a delay in question posting that I'm not aware of?
Do you need a liver or heart transplant?
Do you have $175,000 cash on hand? Logout of MetaFilter (required), then go to this askMefi
. Then tell me, how does
Google know these things about Bangkok?
Variable LINK_DATE is undefined. [more]
I did not mark this
as best answer. I really, really doubt I did it accidently which is why I'm listing it as a bug. No offense, the answer isn't bad, but the best? I wish to wait.
This is the Ask MetaFilter is totally broken bucket. Please leave all refuse here, and I'll do my best to fix it in the next 24 hours. I just made the new posting page live and will try and get everything up and running before I got to sleep in a couple hours, but I'm sure I'll miss a lot. Help me here.
Right now I see three "January 23" headings in AskMe, atop three "January 22" headings. Prior days display just fine. What's the story, Morning Glory?
I'm getting an Error # 4096 while trying to post a comment to Ax Me right now.
AskMe throws a ColdFusion error when I'm not logged in, but works just fine when I am.
November 9th has happened three times so far on the AskMe front page.
Comments not opening in AskMe at 10:00 a.m. PDT Monday, 5/10. Administrator, please hope me?
I know AskMeFi's a work in progress, but just a mention of a bug in case it hadn't been noticed yet: Using or
tags in AskMeFi breaks the layout in preview (I didn't post so I don't know if they'd get stripped or fixed in the actual post).
If you include a character entity in text for preview then it is displayed correctly and appears (as the appropriate character) in the edit area. However, when you click post, the character is converted to "?" (ie. posting character entities is OK, but if they're previewed then they're converted to the equivalent extended character, which is not accepted by "post").
