neowin Report old/large threads that are broke here pls

15 posts in this topic

I've seen some reports of threads not working to save posts anymore (automatically) but on refresh they do get submitted.

I have seen this issue in "the thread formerly known as" topic because it also happens to me. This is an issue we haven't worked out yet, but my first suggestion is to close them and then reopen a new thread.

Our database is quite large and it could be a number of things causing these issues to happen, anyway if you run across this problem, link the thread here and I'll check it.

Thanks.

Was able to post to the first two threads immediately using fast reply.

Please only report threads that don't allow you to do this.

Edit: The forum was fixed earlier today, but I confirmed the "thread formerly known as" still had the posting issue, so I've created a new one.

Double check if problem topics now work before reporting ;)

OK so this seems to happen to people who participated in the thread before hmm. The Cyanide & Happiness one is 245 pages long, I started it and have posted in it a ton of times and that thread isn't broke. But it also doesn't have a lot of attachments either.

This thread that I started in 2004 also works for me

Can you log out of Neowin and then back in again, then retry posting in any of those threads you reported?

Yup, that's the thing.

If you have posted some amount of posts in the thread before, chances are that it will get stuck.

Conversly, Mass Effect 3 thread has over 1000 replies, and I have been posting it for quite some time, but it never gets stuck. At least for now

And conversely x2, I had zero posts in World of Warcraft Thread, but in my very first post, it got stuck

I was getting it last night almost every single time in the "Slow forums" thread. It's been quicker today so I haven't tried it. But that thread was only 2 pages long.

No longer getting the driver error in the new 'spam' thread when posting woo :D

Had been getting that for about 2 weeks.

Please don't slate me for asking this, because I'm genuinely interested to know... but I guess you've asked Invision if they're aware of this issue. Have you had a response from them at all?

We've asked Invision a lot about large databases and they are finally starting to do something about it in the 3.x versions. 3.3 is another (mostly) backend update so I hope things will improve with that update when we can upgrade.

Good stuff, thanks for the reply :)
