Posting issue


Nexus 5, android 5.0. About half the time when I post a reply I get an error message that I couldn’t post after ~20 seconds of processing, but I see the post show up correctly. I then cancel out of the editor and everything looks correct. Am I the only one?



I get it. I think @Donald_Petersen has mentioned it somewhere too.


Does it say summat about a ‘bad gateway’…? If so, that’s what I was seeing earlier, but not for the last few times I’ve posted. Though having said that…

iOS here.


Yes. Saw it this morning.


Ive had this issue, posting through firefox browser, generally, not on a phone or tablet device. It hasn’t happened in the past couple of days, but it has been an issue in the past couple of weeks. I want to say maybe @jerwin mentioned similar problems rather recently?


Yeah, that’s weird. I wonder if the mobile version is suffering a delayed version of what the desktop browsers were going through a week or two ago. I had it happen in Chrome on Win8, and it stopped for a day or two, recurred for an afternoon, then seems to have gone away for good several days ago. I can’t speak to the mobile version. Though I occasionally read BBS on my phone, I never post with it, largely because my posts are generally too long to comfortably type with a texting thumb, but mostly because I haven’t been able to remember my password in ages and ages. :wink:


Sorry about this (again) we are looking into it. In the meantime we redeployed latest code.


I was going to post a “me too” (Mac desktop, Firefox) but I see codinghorror is already on the case!


say that to me too occasionally… OSX Firefox and iOS Safari too I think.


Me three again. But yeah, hopefully, it can be fixed soon.


Yep, it’s back on the desktop version. Just an FYI, guys. A minor annoyance, but one you wanna fix.


Has been happening with me nearly every time I post, for about two weeks. Running Firefox 34.0 for Linux.


Has been very intermittent for me.


Just a quick note that I am digging through this issue, let me know here if you are noticing any misbehaving


I’m getting it again now.


Fortunately, right now I can report:


Here she goes again, on latest Chrome/Win8:


Sorry, I know it sounds like a cheese shop sketch, but the issues 5 hours ago were related to an avalanche of load we got after launching

We sorted out the issues a few hours ago, so let me know if it persists.


“But I like it runny”.

“Oh, the cat’s eaten it”.

“Has he”.

“She sir”


Testing on chrome

Edit: this worked fine on latest chome on 4.4.2
