Unrelated to yesterday’s issues...

Sometime in the last few months, the system stopped remembering my login.  Now every time I open MOL I have to log in again, as if I had “don’t remember me” checked, or read without thread memory.

Very annoying — any ideas?
What device it this happening on?  Ipad - phone - desktop.  It could be happening if you are using a private or incognito browser window.

 That might be it...I think I did fiddle with security settings on my phone, and might have changed something.  Thanks!


Jamie, please check my messages in my account. I just got a weird one from someone I don’t know about an urgent meeting. Looks like spam.


Thanks for the heads up!  Same message was sent out to three others - really weird.


Looks like search isn't working?

 Thanks for the heads up - it will be working by the morning.


search is working now.


I don’t know if it’s update related or something else, but recently I’ve seen a lot of quotes with words on top of each other.  Anyone else?


I see the same when the quote is long.


It’s a feature to automatically compress the previously long blocks of green. If you want to read what’s in the green, you can Click to Read More. It can be a little temperamental — sometimes the type remains scrunched — but I think that’s because the commenter has either intentionally or accidentally tinkered with the quote.


Yes - this is a bug we had with long and embedded quotes.  We just solved this issue yesterday.  It won't correct previous posts - but going forward this shouldn't happen.  

Please let us know if you seen this happen with any new posts.  We also may be able to correct the old ones at some point as well.


When I have done that, the type often (always?) remains scrunched.  LOL


Please report any new issues with overlapping text - I think my guys are working on tweaking any previous occurrence of this.


Still loading slowly (6:15 am).  Better now.


I don’t know if this is update- related, but there’s an issue with the ‘quote’ and ‘reply to this comment’ buttons.    A couple of times I’ve pressed one of these and the window doesn’t immediately open so I press the button several more times thinking my finger missed the mark on the screen.    A second later the window opens with five copies of the post I mean to respond to.   I’ve noticed that at least one other poster experiences this.  


I'm still having the slow loading issue, especially in the early am.  Impacts going from one thread to another and submitting posts.


"Insert link" no longer has an option to have the link open in a new window.  I usually select that, so that people clicking on a link I post don't get taken away from the MOL page they're on.

Any way to put that back?

 I'll try to see if we can make open a new window the default - we recently upgraded to the latest version and they took away that checkbox.

 I'll have my guys look into this - I think in the past when you hit 'quote' or 'reply to comment' the focus would bring you right down to the text box.  Now when you hit it - it's out of view usually, especially on mobile.

 Thanks for the heads up on this - any particular time frame?  8-10am?


Jamie:  More like 6:00 am to 7:00 am.  PC/Chrome/FIOS.


Jamie.  There is something VERY wrong with the edit function on many of the threads(this one for example).  Hoping folks won't abuse this glitch.


Can you be more specific?

 Ugh.  Its easy to hit the wrong one.  I would like credit for exercising GREAT restraint.


@jamie

The edit ability is now open on all posts, not just the ones you have authored. It's like we've all been given administrator privileges.

Edited by Nohero to add: HOLY COW THIS IS NOT GOOD.


No apologies for using sprout's post to illustrate a big problem right now. I do what I want and never look back. I try to live my life like mrincredible, who is cooler and more awesome that I could ever be.

Yeah I just edited nohero's post and there is no indication of who did it. 


Catch-22: How does jamie say he’s on the case, after Klinker craftily raised the issue, without calling more attention to it? How do I convey that jamie has already said he was on it, without running into the same catch?


Still working on it? Because now there’s no edit button for my posts, either.


It looks like the edit buttons have been removed from all our posts for the moment...


yes - that's our quick fix at the moment.  They'll be back.
