This thread appears when I'm logged in, but vanishes when I log out

In both browsers on my machine (IE6 and Firebird), this thread appears when I'm logged in, but vanishes when I log out. I've never noticed this before; is there a reason why this happens? This makes me wonder if I've missed other stuff in the past.

There are only about five active posters running thousands of sockpuppet accounts

I hate to derail the potental hilarity from within the 'quonsar - who he?' thread, but I have a teeny bug: I was searching for stavros (to make sure he really was in Korea and I wasn't making a huge mistake asking him to comment on something of which he knew nothing), and got two results for 'stavrosthewonderchicken'. One was him. The other was actually vacopinta.

Here's the url of the search.

And just to get back to quonsar-filter, there are five of him - one of which is jonson, one of which is madamjujujive, and none of which really are quonsar.

I click on the trackbacks, but there are none

IN the Bill and Liz thread, it says that there are 3 trackbacks. When I click on the trackback link, I get no trackback. When open the thread the usual way, I get no trackbacks. Where are the trackbacks? (In both IE6 and Opera, btw.)

nothing loads after ADVERTISEMENT

Google Ad problem? Everything on the blue pages load, right up to the ADVERTISEMENT part of the Google Ad sidebar, then nothing loads after that. (screen shot)

Thousands of unviewed links? That can't be!

Is it just me? The bluepage seems to think I have thousands of unviewed links while here in the grey it lists two. As addicted as I am to this place, I know SOMETHING is wrong...

Forced login - what?

I just got forced to login when loading either MetaFilter or MetaTalk, with a statement that only logged-in folks can post. What's that about?

Request to update MetaTalk posting page for IE.

Dear Matt: given that most people here use IE, when will you modernize the MetaTalk posting page? You've known for ages that anyone hitting the "Back" button to edit their post will lose everything because of IE browser settings.

When will it be as easy as the MetaFilter one? How is someone who knows no HTML supposed to post to MetaTalk with the appropriate links, bold and italic emphases and whatever?

"Page Has Expired" after preview

After testing links in preview of both Posts and Comments, I hit "back" and get "Page Has Expired". (Dingoes Ate My FPP!) Happens in IE6, but not in Mozilla. Yes, I've eaten all my cookies. Is this something I need a computer to know about?

Can't get this posted...

I miss Pete Wilson, to be honest. But, apparently, I can only say it once in that particular thread. I've tried posting the sentiment multiple times in that thread, but when I hit "post" nothing happens. [more inside]

links breaking uup words make threads unfindable

The famous "bohemian rhapsody" post is utterly impossible to find with the normal search methods, due to the way the words are divided up into more than one hyperlink. If I didn't know it was y2karl's post I wouldn't have been able to find it at all. Also, search doesn't seem to let you search the text within the title tags, either.

MetaTalk archives have stopped indicating new comments

MetaTalk archives (e.g., May) have stopped indicating new comments. This makes it hard to find recent comments in threads that have fallen off the main page.

Logging in direct to main?

Is there a reason why when logging in one isn't redirected to the index page? Having to click the link everytime is annoying and it would seem better to be automatically redirected. I did a quick search here on MetaTalk, but saw nothing about it...

MF hanging Safari

Has anyone noticed a problem with MF and Safari >=0.67? These are the builds with tabs; 0.73, the first public release, went into open beta today. I often find that the MF home page will hang Safari until it's done (spinning cursor, can't scroll, can't leave the page early, no interaction at all.) This doesn't seem to happen with the lofi page (or anywhere else).

Trouble loading the front page, and being redirected.

I tried to load up metafilter earlier and it was taking a while. I noticed at the bottom of my explorer window it said something like "Opening page http://www.b4ta.com/metafilter" Then the page failed to load entirely. I'm confused.

Bug in mycomments dropdown

When viewing MeFi in "my comments" or "most comments" mode, selecting "date" from the pull-down menu does nothing. I have to go to "recent comments," then select "date" when in that mode to get it to work. Using IE 6.0.26 on XP, if relevant.

Recently posted not in "sort by recently posted" view

I recently posted a comment in this thread, but it doesn't show in the 'sort-by-recently-posted' option for the front page of MeFi (which I can't find a way of linking to).

What's up with that?

discrete comment deletion

The coment count for this thread is two higher on the 'lofi' page than on the regular front page. Is this a bug or did Matt do a little discrete comment-deletion (I admit I go to 'lofi' at least once a day for its 'bonus content' - nudge nudge, wink wink)

[This Is Good] script bug

This may not be strictly a Mefi bug, but...
I wanted to use the [This Is Good] script for the first time today, on this thread, and found the following error message:

"Sorry, something's broken.

Don't know why, but this script has stopped adding new posts to the database, and I'm too busy with Christmas right now to figure it out. I'll work on it soon after the Holidays, I promise. Sorry!


So, all the other users of that script - in that thread and others - I guess it ain't doing what ya thought, sadly. Is it something on the Mefi end thats causing it to freak out?

Nothing is being posted?

I've "previewed"... hit "post", the button reacts, the aura around the button glows, but nothing is sent as far as a reply is concerned.


Waaaaaaaah!


Halfway down the thread, the indent disappears and the remainder replies are flush hard left.

Could this be my problem?

er, our problem?

Thanks.

Multiple appearances of trackbacks

Several blog entries make multiple appearances in the trackbacks of the shuttle thread: does MT's trackback function re-ping the server every time a single post is updated (as so many of us were doing yesterday as the shuttle story developed)?

Can't log out

Am I the only one having trouble logging out? I click "logout", and it just spins me around to the homepage, and I'm still logged in. Tried closing the browser, rebooting, etc. No dice. This has happened on multiple computers (public ones, unfortunately) that have previous had no problems with logging out.

Weird blank section showing up in Mozilla

Just posted this thread in Mozilla. Reading the front page in Mozilla briefly showed a huge blank section between the last line of my post and the "posted by" line. The blank section didn't show up in IE and is fixed now in Mozilla. What happened? (FWIW, I'm absolutely sure I didn't include 25 or so blank lines at the end of the post.)

br clear bug

Posts which contain [br clear=all] (but, you know, with sharp pointy brackets) cause the following text on the front page to drop below the side bar in IE6 (Win XP).

Also, how does the 'clear=all' benefit the 'br' tag?

Internal errors in MetaFilter and MetaTalk

Ehh, what's up, mat? Both metafilter and metatalk seem to be internal-erroring at random places, sometimes all you get is an error, sometimes it shows part of the page and then prints the error and quits half way through. This happens both with opera and lynx.

Problem with MeFi displaying really large text.

In Windows XP version 2002, using either Mozilla 1.1 or IE6, renders Metafilter with really big letters that make reading the site difficult. Anyone got any solutions?

Some textads are too wide

Some TextAds are too wide (on standards-compliant browsers). "www.ArtSwag.com" and
"STICKERS*PINS*SHIRTS For angry ranters and the people who love them" are two examples. It increases the width of the in which it and the sideblog are nested, thereby reducing the width of the main content column, not to mention leaving a large gap between the right-hand page margin and the sideblog.
    The culprit seems to be the title field. A multiworld title with spaces will wrap in the ad-box; the above two examples are long (but within 20-char limit) one-word titles. Can something be done?

Minor quibble with drop-down menu

Here's a minor quibble: when you sort the front page by "recent comments" the drop-down menu goes to "recent comments" accordingly and you can then select "date" and the page will reset.

However, if you choose "most comments" or "my comments" the menu goes automatically to "date" so you can't reset the page to date-ordered posts in one click. You have to, for instance, select "recent comments" and then select "date".

This is probably very taxing on the server. Is there any cleverer way round it?
