Is AskMe down? (Jan. 22, 2006)

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.

User number bug

it's been stuck at 26434 for an awfully long time, hasn't it?

Linebreaks in preview on AskMe.

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.

AskMe Errors

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...

Metatalk layout in Firefox unusual

At least in Firefox for Mac, the layout of Metatalk is weird. There's no lefthand margin; and the top of the page contains these links, etc.:

MetaTalk is a discussion area for topics specific to MetaFilter itself, ranging from bug reports to feature requests to questions of content. The posts are sorted by date, and tagged by category.

Some helpful links:

MetaFilter meetups that are in progress, being planned, and/or coming soon

All sorts of extra MetaFilter stuff

DNS Issues?

It looks like your DNS server is failing. Metafilter is hosted by eod.com, and they aren't answering for anything in metafilter.com. I'm trying to get this posted quickly before my caches expire... I already can't reach ask.metafilter.com

Eod has only one IP address for their 'two' nameservers, 72.36.180.243. It pings, but doesn't answer name service requests.

You might want to consider hosting your domain with someone with enough money to put two servers on the net. :(

Timestamps and bugs and issues, oh my.

Last month, there was this bug about posts from yesterday being timestamped as "this morning" in My Comments. The same thing is happening in My Posts. It is confusing.

Login works on MeFi and MeTa but not AskMe

How can I be logged in to MeFi and MeTa, but not AskMeFi? When I'm reading AskMeFi and I try to login, the login page bumps me to MeFi. Then, when I click on AskMeFi, I'm not logged in. Que pasa?

(I haven't been around much lately, apologies if this has been covered before.)

Time Zone problem? My prefs are set to display the Eastern TZ, yet I'm seeing everying in PT. I think this is a recent phenomenon, though I may have just missed it before.

Timestamps

"Timestamps" in "my comments": The quasi-timestamps in "my comments" are wrong. The early ones are right "This morning"/"12 Hours ago"/ "7 Hours Ago" etc.

But then at some point it seems to reset and comments from yesterday are listed as "This morning" and "4 hours ago". It looks like it's only taking time into account and not the date?

MetaTalk Comments Bug

Bug: Try going to a user's MetaTalk comments page (example).

If you click on the page numbers at the bottom, offsets don't seem to work. Therefore, clicking on page 10 should return comments 451-500, but actually returns comments 1-500. Presumably, if everyone who sees this clicks on page 109, and therefore requests all 5437 comments, the world will explode.

New Layout Bugs

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.

Spellchecking More Inside

Oops: The Spellchecker in AskMe apparently doesn't check the "more inside" section (and thus it is embarrassingly revealed that I know how to spell neither "precocity" nor "curiosities"). [MI]

Problem Voting on Projects

Can't vote on Metafilter Projects. No matter which browser I try (Opera, Firefox, IE, Mozilla) I cannot vote on any of the MeFi Projects. I get the following message: There was an error recording your vote. I've done the cookie-clearing logout/login and still get the same error.

I realize the section is still in beta so it's not a huge deal. I just wanted to give a heads up since several other people are having the same problem.

Strange user pages exist in the system for potential MeFites who didn't activate their membership

When you search users you get users who started the signup process, but never paid their $5. Strange user pages ensue.

My profile seems to think my zipcode doesn't exist.

For some reason in my profile, where it is supposed to say "xx MetaFilter users near this user:" I get "no zip found in the db". I found that strange, as I live in a suburb of DC, but shrugged it off as everyone else living in the cooler parts of town. However, when I got bored and looked into it, I'm 26.87 miles from darksquirrel. Yet darksquirrel is 29.78 miles from jenny18 and they show up in each other's zipcode list. Is this a bug, or have I uncovered the fact that my neighborhood has been blackballed by MeFi?

Sharpreader is Combining RSS Feeds

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?
