Over-active Activity

I was digging through my "Activity" and discovered that, in Safari, clicking on "Older" or "Newer" opened the next page in a new window. Clicking "Older" or "Newer" in that window opens yet another new window. And so on... Weirdly, clicking on "Older" or "Newer" in Firefox opens the pages in new tabs. Repeatedly.

Can't add a contact

I'm trying to add someone as a contact, but when I hit the "Add Contact" button I get a white screen that says "Wrong username and password, please try again." What gives?

"Flag it and move on!" "I can't!" "The override, where's the override?!?!?"

Problem A: A Metafilter Jobs post breaks the guidelines, IMO. Problem B: I get a Cold Fusion error when flagging it as breaking the guidelines.

More white space!

There's something odd about the MetaFilter home page. A huge blank space next to the sidebar, between the date and the first post.

Well, this is probably a bug...

Broken RSS Feeds

It appears that the RSS feeds are down. Obviously I can still get to the rest of the site, but Firefox's Live Bookmark feature is coming up with "Blank" instead. Other bookmarks are correctly updating. When I try to browse to the correct location, I time out. Started around noonish today, EST, I think. Before I wiped away my MetaFilter list by requesting the bookmark, the most recent story was the one about Ellen Feiss. I know this is happening to MeTa, MeFi, and AskMe.

Missing MeTa

I have never seen a completely disappeared MeTa post before today. Given what passes for normal on MetaTalk, I fear that there must have been a truly unspeakable horror contained within it to merit this special handling. Do I walk on dangerous ground, merely speaking that post's name? If so, I take it all back, I saw nothing, there never was a thread 1347... what was that number again? I forget now.

Favorites Page

Favorited comments not appearing on Favorites page. Ambrosia favorited this comment of mine, but it does not appear on my Favorites page. (It does appear on her favorites page.) Not sure if it's affecting the total favorites count.

Are there limits for jobs.mefi?

Are there posting frequency limitations for jobs.mefi? I have two positions that just opened up, but when I click "Post" on the second one, it brings me back to the preview screen with no error message. I'm guessing it's because I justed posted one - how long do I need to wait before posting the other?

AskMe RSS Problem

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?

Bug: contributions by userx that were saved as favorites

Problems on "contributions by userx that were saved as favorites by other members" pages: example
1) New favorites (such as today's) are not being added to this page.
2) Clicking on "next page" just reloads the same page even though the url lists it as page 2. Page progression is fubared.

AskMe RSS Bug?

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.

Profile Changes Borked MeFi

Early Sunday morning I made two minor changes to my user page (added my new blog's address, changed the text in the location line), and when I saved the changes and viewed my user page again, it and every other page of MeFi suddenly appeared as white with black text. And so it has remained. If I delete cookies and log out, I see it in blue, grey and green, but not otherwise. Why has this happened and how can I fix it? I dislike the white so much I can't stand to read the site.

My Comments page broken

My "My Comments" page is broken. "[Macromedia][SQLServer JDBC Driver][SQLServer]Cannot sort a row of size 8407, which is greater than the allowable maximum of 8094." I have a hunch on which thread is to blame.

Favorites for Opera?

So I guess favoriting is still broken for Opera. (I posted about this on Oct 25th). I dunno if Matt intends to support this feature on Opera or not, but I thought I'd prod anyway to see if the answer might be yes. (Please!)

Yeah, yeah, I'll switch to Firefox, it just crimps my browsing style. It's just not my... favorite.

Bug in the tabs in AskMe.

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).

Favorites broken?

Is favorites broken? They don't seem to be showing up reliably in the my favorites page, and sometimes the favorites tag on the comment itself isn't incremented. A little more inside.

Tags For Deleted Posts Need To Be Deleted

It would seem to me that a deleted post with tags would be more useful than a tag that hasn't any posts. [example] (if the tags hadn't been deleted). Why aren't all deleted posts purged of tags [example] so that search results are less questionable?
