Server is still starting up

Ask MetaFilter post message has spazzed out and I keep getting server errors ("Server is still starting up"??).

I just thought I'd impart this thrilling news for your edification and reading pleasure.

I'm done now.

Opera Bug with Live Preview

Did the addition of live preview break comment posting in Opera? Comments still get posted, but on submit, the page never refreshes, and just sits there and spins.

Are other Opera users having this problem, or just me?

IP blockage error?

If my IP were blocked, would the symptoms be something like constantly getting a "Error Executing Database Query ... Server returned: No buffer space available (maximum connections reached?)" error, even though everyone else can connect just fine, until it occurs to me to ssh elsewhere and try connecting? At which point I get through fine?

When someone adds a comment to a post, it used to say how many of the comments were new. It doesn't do that anymore.

I was trying to flag a remark, but Firefox gives me a wierd error after is says the message got sent, as it's redirecting back to the original post. Just wondering if message was (probably) received. and to point out the bug.

Love preview, but can't see it

I like the new "instant preview" feature in the blue, but in the preview window, I'm seeing black text on a blue background -- in other words, not terribly well.

Did it get posted?

The last few times I've made an FPP, I've hit 'Submit' and it's pointed me back to the homepage...without the post. I hesitate to try again because I don't want it posting twice. I realize this was just discussed but I wanted to see if anyone had had a similar experience recently since the bug seems to remain.

Safari 2.0 tabs bug with background colors

i opened ask metafilter and metatalk in two tabs in Safari 2.0, closed the AskMeFi tab, and (i think) clicked a link in MeTa, and the top frame is still AskMeFi green. here's a link. looks like a caching issue obviously but i've refreshed and it's still there.

CSS fix for horizontal scrollbar

I'd like to submit a bug-fix to MetaFilter default.css stylesheet. It fixes the Mozilla/Firefox page rendering (on Windows) so that it no longer generates an annoying horizontal scrollbar. After much tinkering, it appears to be fixed by the following small change to the stylesheet:

.tinydatetime {

font-size: 10px;
font-family: verdana, sans-serif;
font-weight: bold;
color: black;
padding-left:5px; < ------ change to b>margin-left:5px;
padding-right:5px; < ------ change to b>margin-rightt:5px;
}

It needs testing on non-Windows platforms however.

I'm getting an error message

I'm not sure if it's been noticed already or how long its been going on, but when trying to access Metafilter I get this error message:

The ValueList() function has an invalid parameter: getLinks.link_id.
Parameter 1 of function ValueList which is now (getLinks.link_id) must be pointing to a valid query name.

Just makin' sure someone knows...

Doubled posts on the blue

I've noticed a fair bit of double posts recently on MeFi (not AskMefi nor MeTa).
Here (keswick), here (bugbread) and here (3.2.3.) Is there some newly introduced bug in the posting code?

AskMe archives missing a way to go to older pages

When viewing a category in AskMe, it defaults to the last 30 days. Unfortunately, it seems to neglect to show the clever widget to allow one to go back further. It shows in MetaTalk's categories.

NEXT not nexting in user search

Archived results of a user search are broken down in batches of 50. However, going to different pages of the results keeps giving the same 50. (I tried using NEXT and clicking individual page numbers.). I'm on Firefox on OS X.

Why didn't my ad run?

I don't know if this is a bug, per se, but it's certainly a problem. I submitted a text ad a while back and paid for it with PayPal. I never got any email, and the ad was never activated. I can log into the ad system and see it in the inactive section, but there is no option to activate it. It never ran, there are 0 views.

In addition I had a hard time figuring out who to contact about this. There is nothing in the ad system area, the wiki, the text ad information page, or the text ad order page telling me who to contact with a text ad problem! I found Matt Haughey's address on the About page, but it has been about two weeks now with no response.

Any suggestions? I'd love to know how to get the ad activated, how to prevent this in the future, and/or how to get my money back.

Should I report every error message I get from the site?

Metaquettefilter: When I see things like "Parameter 2 of function Right which is now 0 must be a positive integer" when I'm trying to get my nigh-hourly dose of ask.mefi, should I just assume a wizard did it, and it'll all get taken care of, or should I report it? I *hate* the idea of being the 3000th person to complain about something and thereby be part of what's keeping it from getting fixed....

Pagination not right

Something on the "Showing results ... of ... answers by ..." pages seems to be broken.

This page should be my 50 most recent answers, and it is, but this page does not show answers 51 - 100 like its supposed to, but rather shows answers Most Recent - 100. Clicking either page number or NEXT yields the same results.

Also, Matt, as I post this -- should the dead blogroots.com link still be on the Metatalk posting page?

Nothing to see here

Every time you click "comments" to see the answers in Ask Metafilter, the page that loads says "Nothing to see here, move along... You've stumbled upon a non-existent post, or one that was deleted for various reasons."

Multiple best answers in askme: feature or bug?

I noticed an AskMe thread with two "Best Answers". Is the ability to mark more than one answer as "best" intentional, or is this a bug? I'm sure there are going to be cases of ties, so perhaps this isn't a bad idea.

An archive-status related bug

I'm assuming it's related to this, but when I'm not logged in, each thread in the blue ends with the "This thread is archived and is closed to new comments" message, instead of the "Register or login to comment" message.

I am TOO logged in. The thread has been taken out.

When viewing a deleted thread (While logged in) I see a bit at the bottom that says "You are not currently logged in. Log in or create a new account."

I can confrim that this is happening in every thread that is currently missing off of the front page.

Firefox 1.0, WinXP, &c.

"Mozilla not fit for general use"

Does the "Mozilla not fit for general use" FPP count as a self-link? It only calls out a single bug, which the author has commented on several times. For that matter, I don't think a layout bug is usually worthy of a FPP.

The timezone slips occasionally.

PST slippage in the blue... Occasionally my time reference on MeFi gets whacked back to PST, though my preferences are EST. When I see the problem, I edit my profile (changing nothing), submit and ta-da, EST. Don't need no pony, just bringing it up. Happens ~ once a month.

The title of the AskMe page reads "Announce Metafilter"

While I'm as excited as anyone about announce.metafilter.com, I wonder if the fact that the title of the ask.metafilter.com page reads "Announce Metafilter" is a bug?

I messed up some html with a single quote.

I inserted a single quote in a post on accident and the MeFi code that normally would be the rest of the page (i.e. all the buttons and such) showed up in my preview textbox.

Always refreshes to the first view of the day

Everytime I view a MeFi/MeTa/AskMe page, it brings me to the first time I viewed the page that day. I can reload the page and see new posts and/or comments, but if I leave that page everytime I go back it displays the first load of the page, not even the most recently viewed version. [MI]

"Posted At" seems to be occasionally hinky

"Posted At" seems to be occasionally hinky. When I click the link to Mayor_Curley's embedded-image post (supposedly http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/38941#832736), it pops me to a different part of the page (http://www.metafilter.com/mefi/38941#832671) which is the first comment in the thread). I think I have seen that with some of my own posts in the past, perhaps when previewing, editing, previewing, editing, etc...
