    We are having a double post issue this evening.

    I find that when post reply is pressed the blinky in the upper right hand corner shows up. It will stop and my post remains in the post box. When I refresh the screen it will have posted in the thread. I previously had double posted. Other members are having the same issue. Please check this out.

    Thanks.

    The above issue I have mentioned does not occur in any other thread in which I have posted this evening.

    It's the old big thread bug, the one that used to hit around 62k posts, now hitting the FL* thread around 97k posts. It's time to actually focus on this and do a real fix instead of bandaids or just starting new threads. It shows an underlying error in the forum code, and postponing a fix or using workarounds just lets the problem fester and grow.

    And we all know the risks of letting Uncle Fester move in here.

    BTW, in addition to the post reply refresh/double post issue, I've also stopped getting quoted alerts in the FL* thread.. That's another old bug re-emerging.

    Your image linky is broken in MIA.

    This may be painful to you G but maybe no one is quoting you.:)

    I am having issues when I click "Post Reply" button. It doesn't take me back to the thread. I have to reload the page to see my post.

    At 2:13 pm EDT the problem in FL*3 persists.

    Friendly Skies posted from Denver and expressed his displeasure over having to refresh the page for his messages to post. He is young and gets quite perturbed without instant gratification. You don't want him to come to the HOM and lay a whupping on you.:)

    I know you have all been out and about thinning the raccoon population the past few days but the servers and particularly out thread need your attention. Months ago you fixed the disappearing icon issue in the Kiva threads and made us all happy. Please do the same for the FL*Lounge. It will please us to have 100,000 posts in that part of the thread. We don't want to have to go to Part IV.

    When you have successfully solved the issue please post in the thread whilst wearing your new coonskin cap.;)

    Thanks.

    Maybe they'll have waffles at HOM, like they did for the Come Fly to Me DO.. After all, I'm only a little over an hour from there :p

    Morning from the southeastern US peninsula HOM IT folks.:)

    Our lounge thread issues persist.

    However, you knew that and were just waiting for us to continue our witty repartee with you.

    Please fix the thread.

    Thanks.

    Well...I know we all hoped this had been fixed after FL*2 started having all the troubles with posts, needing to refresh to actually post, the alerts not working etc.....and I know Tim and others had worked on fixing the problem then

    However, it looks like the problem was just delayed by about 50% ...

    As Gargoyle says above, it would be nice to have a final fix on resolving these issues for large forum threads....it appears FL* has been a bit of a trailblazer in this regard (number of posts plus number of links/photos in said posts) and thus also a bit of an experiment as well....

    Hopefully this will be resolved soon....and all the different FL* threads can be all merged back together where they all belong :)

    Perhaps we're looking at it all wrong- it could be like the award calendar on Delta.com. We all think the award calender has been hopelessly broken and misleading for years, but the fact that it hasn't been "fixed" really means that it really is working exactly the way DL wants it to work.

    My point is, perhaps we don't understand the big picture and the admin perspective, and from their point of view perhaps nothing is broken, and this is functioning exactly the way they want. That could explain the lack of any response to this thread. :)

    Tell that to the cops at 430am when they ask you to do it. :D

    In all seriousness, every post on milepoint is a treasure.

    Clearly people care about it and value it, or they wouldn't be doing it.

    Exactly. That is why people in Chicago continue to vote even in the afterlife.

    This remains a known bug with the software we are using for Milepoint. As some of you likely know, we did build a workaround which did work, but when a subsequent maintenance release was available for upgrade, i elected to not reinstall the hack as I was short on resources to confirm it would not conflict with some other code changes in the program.

    HERE you will see that the problem is acknowledged by the developer and that it is flagged as a 'future fix.' We are aware that there may be a Beta of the next version of software by end-of-second quarter but at this point do not know if it will include the formal fix for this. We'll keep an eye on it for the best interest of the community and will post anything that we can confirm. We're certainly not alone in needing this bug fixed and like other board operators, wish we had more information.
