The site will be down starting about ninety minutes from right now for scheduled maintenance. You will not be able to access all of this right here, of course, and I'm sure this will make you nervous. Sadly, because I am posting this on the same site that will soon be down, I will not even be able to directly you here so you can read it and know it's a planned outage and we'll be back soon.  We expect four hours or so of downtime.

But it is, and we will.

And when we're back, I'll have all sorts of great things to tell y'all: a quite belated thank you and summation of THE MVP gestalt, some thoughts on what it means to be a 'creative adjacent' as I like to call my role in the partnership that is Dark Øverlord Media, and even a bit of news about what's coming down the pike.

But first things first: site updates tonight. We'll be gone for a short while. But don't fret — we'll be thinking of y'all. And also chocodiles, because those are always on Scott's mind.

Left border is back. Yay! But comment print is very very tiny

Frown Emoticons can only go in the beginning of the comments because it wipes out anything that you already typed.

Comments are really glitchy. Sometimes if you delete, you can't retype

And sometimes I can't comment more than 11 words or so ....

It look like one person is posting a dozen times or more in any forum, when they are only posting one comment.

Hi exotiKali, Smile

Can you tell me what operating system and web browser you are using?

I couldn't duplicate the emoticons error.  Undecided

And I could also delete without any problems.  I'm using Chrome on my Mac running Lion. 

Thanks,

Tay

I'm using my iPad, so I'm guessing it's safari. And I didn't update yet, so iOS 5.1.1?

I also can't post on anyone's profile page. I get an error page popping up.

A new page pops up to select the emoticon, and then after you choose itgoes back to the original comments page and now the emoticon is there but the words are gone.

Ah, I see what you're referring to now.  That's actually the intended functionality.  For all the posts & threads that you participate in, anytime someone posts onto that thread, it will show up on the Home tab.  This is a quick way to see what's going on.

So if you have a lot of comments and replies, as happens on a busy thread, you'll probably see the person's name multiple times.

This only happened after the udate. When I see the home screen with the list of who has made a comment it looks as if you (WEAZEL) made 5 comments on this thread, around 5:30 EST.

I made one comment and this is what shows up on my home page.  This cannot be the intended functionality.

Also, not having trouble with smileys, Kali. Tongue Out

Thanks for the pic; no, that is not the intended functionality.  We'll take a look.  Kali was having probs with smiley's on an iPad.  Are you using an iPad also, and if it works for you, what version of iOS are you using?
