The DHTML popups are driving me batty, and they won't go away. More inside.

I suddenly can't post to this one specific thread

I suddenly can't post to this one specific thread; every time I enter my comment, the preview works fine, but on the preview screen all the preview, spell check, and post buttons are all non-responsive. Strangely, I had managed to post in that thread earlier using the same computer (currently running IE on Mac)

TextAd graph is dead

The TextAd graph has gone belly-up. I want, nay demand, fancy graphs to go with my Ad expense, and all I got was this lousy error:

The chart could not be generated due to an error in the graphing engine.


The error occurred in C:\metafilter sites\www.metafilter.com\adsystem\log_report.cfm: line 218

Timestamps in wrong timezone

I'm logged in, but I'm still seeing timestamps in PST (I'm in EST, and my customize page still says that.)

(Win2K/IE6)...and at work so there may be firewall issues.)

Strange "surfing" behavior has user asking: is everything okay?

I have been getting 404s when clicking the links to some threads, and when I hit the back button I get a message saying I was going back to a secure setting. Is everything okay?

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.

Missing image in MeTa markup

meta threads include a reference to http://metatalk.metafilter.com/mefi/images/1space.gif which isn't available (it doesn't affect the page rendering, as far as i can see, but i maybe it's adding load to the server) (and, incidentally, that error page - which is generated but not normally visible - has some weird html, with a head element somewhere in the middle).

Old Copyright Notices

Copyright notices are old...

I just happened to notice that the copyright notices are for 1999-2002 in MeFi and 1999-2001 in MetaTalk... just a heads up on that.

Can we change our passwords?

Is there a way for a user to change their account's password? No pressing need or anything, just wondering, as I like to change my various passwords from time to time.

Java-script bug in captions

I've found a bug in the new javascript captions that come up on links with title attributes - in Phoenix/Mozilla, if I ctrl-click on a link to open it in a new tab, the caption stays up, and the only way to make it go away is to reload the page.

I logged out and now I can't log back in

Time Limit Error

Since the start of December, whenever I've written a post for the front page, previewed it, then hit the final 'Post' I get this error, which says the 'request has exceeded the allowable time limit'.. and this occurs on the line where weblogs.com is pinged. My posts do make it to the front page but I just get this error.

Someone reported the same error six months ago, but it appears to have started again..

Post opens print dialog

I know it has been discussed before, but this post's link to the light version does something different: it brings up the print dialog [ie 6/xp and moz 1.0/xp]. I'd prefer the regular version to a page that decides to open the printer dialog for me.

MetaTalk Login Bug

Mozilla Disappearing Form

In Mozilla 1.1, when previewing a comment on metafilter, the comment form itself disappears (the text box and buttons). This, of course, means that you can't post a comment with Mozilla 1.1.

Characters turning into question marks.

Can any one see what is behind the box? (?)
I can't. I have tried every browser I have on two platforms, OS X and WinXP. Is this case for most people, and if so, why do people keep posting like that?

Two things: 1) In Opera the spellcheck appears to be deleting my posts.
2) In the Opera browser the main page, but not metatalk or any of the comments, is blinking and resetting my scroll bars. It does look kinda cool but....

Can't login to MetaTalk

Mozilla 1.0/Windows 98:

In MetaFilter: shortcut buttons below comment box (link, etc.) are not there.

Using Mr. Gates' product, things work just fine.

Can't log in from the MeTa front page.

Clicking the metatalk link on the front page gave me the metatalk banner and the message below. I was finally able to log in to metatalk via the "category list" button in the banner. No doubt this is Godzilla-related.

I am very impressed with the new server.

I am very impressed with the new server. One bug: Mefi blue and Metatalk grey/brown are not nearly as vivid as they used to be. If I enable colorsync on IE, things look fine, but that was never necessary before "(and AOL seemingly prevents me from keeping colorsync on). Can this be corrected?
posted by ParisParamus on Jul 18, 2002 - 10 comments

thanks, matt

Matt, the new server is fantastic and you've been burning through bugs at a remarkable rate. I know you've been working steadily for several days now. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say how much I appreciate all your work.

Why don't you unplug now and go have a nice dinner? None of the bugs I've seen posted today seem that serious, and I suspect lots of them pre-date the upgrade.

Searching with Quotation Marks

Words or phrases enclosed in quotation marks (e.g. "too much") are ignored by the search app, while the the same words work fine when used without the quotes. What gives?
