For those experiencing issues during live discussions

Discussion in 'Announcements Archive' started by Crayo, Aug 21, 2012.

  1. We've had reports that some users have had errors when certain threads like the discussion threads get to a large amount of pages, thus resulting in them getting taken to the first page after replying, instead of the last.

    I've contacted a few people to try and get the official answer as to why this happens, but no one really knows for sure atm. During RAW I found a temporary fix which I will explain now, I hope this helps those who get the error still discuss it live with us.

    Go to your options and set "posts per page" as "show 50 posts per page", screenie below:


    This helped those who had the issue last night.
  2. I have mine on 30 and it still does it :(
  3. It's just temporary. stops working after a short while. I just ended up going to the new reply page after each post. it lets you see the newest replies and is a lot easier to do than going to the last page each time
  4. Not sure why it'd be different but try 50 anyway next time, three users told me it worked so I just presumed it did.

    It only stopped working for you IIRC.
  5. Actually Crayo I still got that problem with the post limit up to 50.
  6. ....

    Well FML then.
  7. Granted at a much smaller frequency but they still happen.
  8. When I change it to 50 posts per page the problem goes for around 2 minutes, but then eventually returns, It must be noted that I'm using Google Chrome, and haven't tried on any other browser.
  9. I doubt it's Chrome, someone said during the thread that they tried Firefox too and it didn't work. Sucks really that there's no definite answer at the moment for us to react and fix or debug. Anonymous has tried something and we can only see if it works on the next discussion thread. It always happens around 100 pages ish, so if the thing he's tried doesn't work and people start getting errors again I'll start a new thread during the discussion and redirect it.
  10. Okay, let's hope whatever Anonymous has done works, either way I don't think it will stop me discussing Raw or Pay-Per-Views. :otunga:
  11. Could it perhaps have something to do with our hosting? Probably not but it could be worth looking into. Our site is always heavy with traffic during pay per view discussions so maybe that has some kind of effect.

    Probably farfetched but a suggestion.
  12. That is the most likely reason, that it just can't cope with that amount of requests per second and it deals with it as good as it can. But I'm still sceptical, I'd rather eliminate every other reason than just blame the host.
  13. Can we just blame Xanth?
  14. Nah, blame Miz.
  15. FWIW, when I changed it to 50, it worked fine for me. I don't think I had issues after that.

    I use Chrome, so there's that.

  16. It's an awesome idea, and I've had the problem as well. Vince's solution seems to be the only way around it.

    But 50 posts per page sounds good :)
  17. 50 posts per page would cause it to take longer to load, which would suck in a live discussion thread.
  18. I don't think it loads much slower tbh.
  19. that's your internet. Not the site.
