error message 'debug code'

Postby Liesbeth » Thu Oct 02, 2008 11:30 am

There's currently a problem with the board displaying an error message after posting your message. Although you are not taken to the post you've just made, it generally seems to be posted anyway (although not always). So to avoid double posts, check the topic you posted in before you post again.

We're working on a quick fix, and hopefully sometime soon we'll be upgrading the board to avoid any such thing to happen again.

By the way, if you just post the word 'it' the error doesn't occur. I've tried.

I made a post in Administrivia about this issue yesterday after I wrote a reply in the GMEAM-forum, but apparently that post never made it through. Weirdness!

EDIT: the search-function seems to be out of order, too.

I'm getting logged out every time I leave the site, which never used to happen. Don't know if this is a bug on the LW side or my own.

zach: that's a cookie thing. Probably something on your side, but one never knows.

Everyone else: Be prepared for changes in the near-ish future. Positive ones.

I hope you're referring to that new web design/website John was talking about some time ago

oops, did no one say that John henceforth will communicate through papyrus scrolls only, for undisclosed reasons (possibly due to the financial crisis or to save several kinds of endangered creatures)?

in the nearisher future be prepared for the board to be offline for (hopefully) a short while - probably this Tuesday

Congrats! I'm excited to see the new changes. Hopefully it won't mean that all the messages on here will be wiped... there's some great nuggets of information that deserve to be preserved, not purged!

Dude, you haven't been printing them out? Don't come to me begging for backups, as you would clearly not like the lossy artifacts that can result from using the copy machine at the local grocery store.

I think I love you.

EDIT: Wait, you've been printing them without laminating several copies and alternating them between off-site safety deposits? Let me guess... you've also cleaned your cache, and lossless copies of the original are no longer in the TEMP folder in your browser directory? Lame. :(

EDIT2: That's actually a great analogy. Have you ever seen a fourth generation photocopy? A fourth generation MP3 of a Long Winters song would probably sound something like GWAR.




Actually, that might be cool.

LONG WINTER'S STARE!

Hmm I dunno, I think a fresh start every now and then would be nice

Yeah, but there's a lot of great content. I hope SOMEONE has backed up the Mimi story.

Obviously Tuesday didn't happen. We'll take you by surprise instead. The intention is however to not lose any info. By the way, I have a lot of info saved in the Library (this board's abundance was one of the reasons to start the library site), but not the Mimi story...

Per "King God" himself, can whoever is in charge of the web site relaunch please contact me?

Thanks,
A

I'd say King God himself is in charge, but apparently he doesn't know it yet. I will dispatch a messenger immediately. If I pick one of those extreme triathlon types, will they be able to reach Seattle by Thanksgiving, I wonder? Hm, it is almost 5000 miles, and the Atlantic is pretty cold to swim across. Oh, hang on, it's exactly 20 years ago this week that NL was the first foreign country to connect to the US internet. That just might be faster....

well, since that first trans-atlantic e-mail was in a sense the birth of the www (albeit at a speed of 264Kb), congratulations world! and what better to celebrate than some appropriate monty python
