I can see no topics at all today. Not even the 'm' thing.

I wonder if this post will surface on the front page eventually?

Personal logo jeffreyw3 Supporting Member of TMP17 Nov 2017 12:47 p.m. PST

Yeah, just happened here, too.

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian17 Nov 2017 12:47 p.m. PST

I turned off topics temporarily while I worked on the 'm' bug.

Topics are back now.

Cerdic Supporting Member of TMP17 Nov 2017 12:49 p.m. PST

Ah, yes. They are back. So is our old friend 'm'!

Vigilant17 Nov 2017 1:15 p.m. PST

Oh no they're not! That's every day this week.

Personal logo piper909 Supporting Member of TMP Inactive Member17 Nov 2017 1:59 p.m. PST

No, they're not.

I typed a lengthy post this morning … then it was gone. Lap top said, something about refresh the site. But my post was still gone. frown

Nice to see the "Ferranti Reset" still in use as a viable method of resolving software issues. :D

TMP will post no topic before it's time….

Lol. That almost sounded like one of those "the dog ate my homework" excuses. Or, in this case, "the machine ate my work". :)

Editor Gwen will contact those of you who are still reporting problems, so we can sort out exactly what problem(s) you are talking about.

Gonsalvo17 Nov 2017 9:20 p.m. PST

No topics before 10:41 AM today display on the front page.

The Ghost in the Machine must have censored me ! huh? frown evil grin

Hafen von Schlockenberg Inactive Member19 Nov 2017 6:41 a.m. PST

Why are all these accounts locked?

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP19 Nov 2017 7:21 a.m. PST

Wow, you're right!

Vigilant – Basic Member
David Manley – Supporting Member
Gonsalvo – Basic Member

So they reported that they had trouble seeing the topics for a while, but now they can't access them at all?

Dan

Legion 419 Nov 2017 8:49 a.m. PST

huh?

Gwydion19 Nov 2017 3:01 p.m. PST

piper909 locked out as well – very odd.

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian20 Nov 2017 6:50 p.m. PST

The accounts are locked while Editor Gwen gets their bug reports, so we can address the forum problems they are reporting. She has sent emails to each of them.

tookey23 Inactive Member20 Nov 2017 8:18 p.m. PST

She could get their bug reports if she pirvate messaged them and they hit reply.

deephorse21 Nov 2017 10:11 a.m. PST

Makes one wonder why locking their accounts is necessary to address any forum problems? Must remember never to report a bug from now on!

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian21 Nov 2017 1:25 p.m. PST

It gets their attention, and it allows us to address the problems they are reporting.

fantasque21 Nov 2017 3:32 p.m. PST

so if I understand correctly, you have problems accessing the forum, you report it, and in response you get temporarily shut out all together? Is that going to motivate people to highlight difficulties in future?
You already have their attention given that they have taken the time to tell you about their difficulties without being asked.

Gwydion21 Nov 2017 4:10 p.m. PST

Has a slight Kafkaesque feel to it admittedly.

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP22 Nov 2017 6:20 a.m. PST

And Hans has now been added to that list too?

Maybe I'm no too much pain med right now, but I don't see the word "temporarily" in the explanation line for him though.

Has anyone heard from Hafen yet?

Is it another one of those "sorting out info" with Gwen issues?

And what was his crime? One of the best blokes left and he's locked out? Please reconsider, Bill.

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP23 Nov 2017 9:21 a.m. PST

Agreed.

Who knows, but it simply says locked. Not temporarily so, or waiting for him to contact moderator.

Dan
PS. These days I'm starting to sound a lot like Jack Sparrow … "Yes, but why is the rum gone?"

It wasn't a reboot, David, I simply 'turned off' the homepage display of forum topics while I worked on the bug fix, then turned it back on. The server is in Cleveland, I can't physically turn it on or off. grin

Legion 424 Nov 2017 8:28 a.m. PST

Give me the server's address. I live about an hour from Cleveland. Me and my gumbas will go "tune'm up" is you'd like ! evil grin

Personal logo David Manley Supporting Member of TMP24 Nov 2017 11:40 p.m. PST

As discussed it was a joke that would have amused some military types of the older generation

deephorse25 Nov 2017 3:05 a.m. PST

Is that why you were locked out? It was obviously a joke, but I guess it didn't translate well into American!

BTW, will be trying your Russo-Japanese naval rules soon.

Personal logo ochoin Supporting Member of TMP26 Nov 2017 2:19 p.m. PST

HvS gone?

Now there's the pity. He was a valuable TMPer & a very nice guy.

Gone Fishing08 Dec 2017 5:56 p.m. PST

Hi Ochoin, hope you see this: pm sent.
