Is the site getting ready to crash?

Trying to view anything on DP today has been worse than dial-up ever was! Downloads are taking over 2 minutes and other times I get an "off line" message. Normally I would think it's my computer but, anywhere else I go it's been quick and easy.

For Jon > DP Trouble-Shooting

Hi Jon,
I've spent several hours trying to figure out why some DPers cannot see comment colors in IE (I used 10), Win 7. Even with scripting enabled, it appears like Firefox with javascript disabled (pale blue). Everything else works fine (including javascript elements, videos); altho' site 'down' issues and slow loading still occurring in ie and ff. Can access in 3-5 refreshs.

Can YOU see colored comments in ie? Or is this a css/html issue with ie?
(doesn't matter if in post, profile, or permalink; cached cleared, haven't located any coding issue yet...used to be one in ie7 with background colors...allegedly fixed in ie8; compatibility view did not engage as if needed in ie10. IE keeps adding security elements to prevent/over-ride hacks by disabling 'old' normal functions. Any ideas what to re-engage? What ie browser settings to use? CAN YOU CODE AN OVER-RIDE SO COLORED COMMENTS APPEAR IN IE WIN 7?) Other ideas?

Thanks.

Can't comment on *old* thread?

Hi, guys -

Nothing crucial, but when I mentioned a book (Target Switzerland by Stephen Halbrook) in a comment the other day it duly showed up in the book bar with a link to my comment and to another thread recommending the same book:

http://www.dailypaul.com/25041/must-read?bt=1

that had been sitting there with (apparently) zero upvotes since January 12, 2008 .

I upvoted it OK, but noticed that there was no "write a comment" option displayed -
is there some limit/restriction on commenting on old threads?

jrd3820's picture

Hmm

Well the reason it had no votes was because the voting system wasn't in place until early 2011 so it has probably been forgotten about since '08 or '09 ish.

As far as commenting on really old threads. Sometimes older threads get brought back up in the mix somehow and if they are particularly divisive or not relevant any more or something like that sometimes a mod will close the comments sections so as to not rehash old arguments, or so people don't wast time commenting on a news story that is a few years old.

Neither seems to be the case with the thread you mentioned so I changed the comment settings and you should be able to comment on it now. I don't really know why it was closed off earlier, but for now it should work.

A group of pandas is called an embarrassment. Sometimes Chris Cudnoski is called an embarrassment. Coincidence?....hmmm....

Wow... that was quick!

Thanks for fixing that, and for the explanation!

I've updated my post twice and both times it hasn't shown

as being updated. http://www.dailypaul.com/323741/request-for-prayers-from-the... Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Nonna

December 30th: HE MADE IT ON TO THE TRANSPLANT LIST TODAY!!!!!!
He's been hospitalized since Christmas Eve and is being released from the hospital soon (I think, today). As soon as a donor match is found, my grandson will receive the gift of life. Thank you, Daily Paul, for your love and prayers!

Is that the update? It shows up for me just fine. I didn't even have to check revisions like I did last time when something didn't work out well.

I'm so happy to hear that he is on the transplant list. Godspeed!

As far as the update, unless there was more or something else, all looks fine to me.

Thanks, jrd.

Shouldn't "Update" show up in red, similar to being a new post to alert the community that the post was updated? Other updated posts do.

Smudge Pot told me he's not

Smudge Pot told me he's not able to log in anymore. I don't know if its a problem with the DP, or password, or what. Anyway, I guess that's why he's not been on lately.

Oh that is great news!

Ok, well not the part about him not logging in, that is sad, but I have wondered where he has been and am glad he is ok and that it is just technical difficulties. However without more info on what is happening I can't help much and even then I probably won't be able to help much because I'm not really tech advanced and I don't know why the dailypaul does the things it does sometimes.

If you are able to talk to him again soon, would you mind having him send an email here with more information on what is happening when he tries to login?

Thanks Stonewall.

Question for Jon....

This lockheed martin ad

is seriously pissing me off. It pops up and starts playing over and over, even when I am on a different tab! What up with that?

Disgusting ads

I don't want to see crap about bisexual celebrities, etc. I don't want to have to use a plugin to get rid of them. I tried that before. Then you guys change the names of the HTML elements, and it all becomes useless and I'd have to do it all over again. I've made comments about this multiple times and seem to have gotten zero responses. It's bad enough to see ads, but lewd ones, WTF? I'm fine with seeing ones that are actual sponsors or real, useful products, like Tangy Tangerine.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

Are Rev Content and Trending on the Web

new DP features? Can I get rid of them? Or is there something at my end that is allowing the disgusting topics and pictures to show up when I visit the DP? It almost makes me not want to visit. Thanks for any insight you can provide!

Why did my post get censored?

Hey not sure why my post got censored:

Are the Rothschilds All Inbred? VOTE on this Picture!

Just wondering if I can get a reason. It's all in good fun - it wasn't inflammatory as far as I'm aware. Just poking fun at TPTB and having a laugh. Some people might disagree with it but when did disagreements become justification for censorship?

bigmikedude's picture

It was

just kind of beneath DP standards Oracle. Rothschilds or not, we just don't care to be the site known for posting someone's picture and inferring they might be inbred.

I know none of us would be happy to find ourselves the focus of a post like that on Salon or some other place.

And it leaves the potential for inadvertently opening Michael's door to having to deal with a slander suit back here behind the scenes while everyone else posts away oblivious to any issues it might cause him at DP.

Updated post is not showing as

having been updated. http://www.dailypaul.com/323741/request-for-prayers-from-the... I'd rather not make it a new post.

Hi Nonna

I see the following update on it. I checked the very original version, and it didn't have this. Then I checked the revised version from today and this is all that seems to have changed. Did you add more to the update than this?

UPDATE: My oldest grandson's health, the one with Cystic Fibrosis, is failing and is in need of a lung transplant. Please say an extra prayer for him that he can hold on and that a donor match is found quickly. The other grandson is on the road to recovery and is doing well. Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love and prayers.

Hi jrd!

That is the updated info I added today, along with "Updated" in the title. Thank you for your reply. As you can imagine, this is a difficult time for my family and we are grateful for all the prayers he can have sent out on my grandson's behalf.
