Is Preview giving anyone else trouble?


 Share

Recommended Posts

I don't think the issue is previewing. But I had access and posting difficulty this morning. I could only stay logged in long enough to view one page in Firefox. I'm using Chrome right now.

 

Other reports indicate that some boards on Brewerfan's server (cdb1) have had trouble. And there've been reports of members getting a variety of error messages.

That’s the only thing Chicago’s good for: to tell people where Wisconsin is.

The preview bug has to do with Yuku's (obnoxious) new spam "feature". It'll be looked into tomorrow. From Yuku staff...

* A change has been made regarding posting duplicate content.
You can not post duplicate content more than once a minute. If you do, it will only post once within a minute (= if you post the same thing twice, one will post, the other one will disappear)

* Previewing a reply may cause a loss of your post if you click "post" less than 60 seconds after previewing it. This is a bug and will be looked into as soon as possible.

FAQ[/b]

What are duplicate posts?[/b]
Duplicate posts are posts that are 100% identical.

Example 1
Good morning
Good morning

Example 2
Good morning
Good morning.

The set in the second example is NOT considered a duplicate posting, because one line has a period behind it, the other does not.
The set in the first example is a duplicate set, the lines are identical.

If I make a post on one board, and then make the exact same post on another, is that considered a duplicate post?[/b]
Yes it is. Whether you make two identical posts on the same board, or you make one post on one board and then the same post on another board, they will be condisered duplicate postings.

How long do I have to wait between identical posts?[/b]
One minute.

If I post two identical posts within a minute, will I see an error?[/b]
You will not see an error. Your first post will be posted as usual, the second will not post.

Help!! My post disappeared and it wasn't even a duplicate.[/b]
This is a current issue that will be resolved shortly. It means that you previewed your post and did not wait 60 seconds between clicking preview and clicking post. As soon as this has been resolved, you will be able to preview your posts as usual again.

Does the post always disappear when less than 60 seconds elapse between preview and posting?[/b]
No, it happens now and then, it does not always happen.

What is happening? I keep getting taken back to the lead post of a multi page topic after posting.[/b]
You likely previewed your post and did not wait 60 seconds between clicking preview and post. When this happens, please check your post, it may not have gone through.

How am I supposed to deal with this? I post the same message in 6 people's mailboxes in the group and I'm so fast, I just copy and paste and I usually do it in less than a minute[/b].
You can still do this and you can still do it fast. Just make sure to make each post slightly different (e.g. add a period to one post, add 2 periods to another, etc..

Will this affect our grid games?[/b]
It will not affect your grid games at all.

I've just had exactly the same issue occur. Oddly, board administrators and moderators are supposed to be exempt from the (obnoxious) spam control. I'll have to report that.

 

By the way, if we were given a choice, we'd turn off the (obnoxious) spam control entirely. Brewerfan has had exactly one spammer make it to the posting stage in the three years we've been on Yuku, and that was due to an administrative brain fart on our part.
