there you go. Prime example. Tried to wwrite E.g.i and it's not worked.

Ooh, hi Ben, while you're here can you fix the private messages and the followed threads too please?

08/10/2013 at 16:43
Trying it over 3G to see if that makes a difference.

E.g.1 e.g.1

Literatin - The private messages and followed threads issue I'm looking into too, but examples of what you're seeing/not seeing more than welcome.

Thanks for your message Ben - have replied. The followed threads problem is that sometimes (but not always) if you post on a thread you are already following, the system automatically unfollows it. You then have to make sure you re-follow it. But if you do, the system defaults to sending you e-mail notifications unless you remember to go straight into your settings after re-following and turn them off.

haha, same thing just happened with this thread!

Thanks Literatin.

Ok, so posting from my mobile hasn't been an issue, but it's clearly not working for all so I'll keep looking into that.

Ben - I suspect that the mobile issue might actually only manifest itself on iOS. I have the problems on both iPad and iPhone: -

  • Text entry field freezes periodically and won't allow further text to be added, though can still delete.
  • Attempts to correct typos lead to bizarre spelling suggestions of usually non-existent words.

Thanks BBB. I noticed some lag when typing but it never froze on me.

but more important is the quote function on normal computers

08/10/2013 at 17:34

Yes it is Seren, that and the edit functions are the first fixes that I'm pushing to be fixed.

Can we have the Edit Facility back Ben? (disappeared a few days ago)

10/10/2013 at 15:10

Hi everyone. 

The latest on the edit, quote, PM and followed threads errors are that they should be fixed by the start of next week. Sorry that you have to deal with it over the weekend, but they're all issues relating to the entire platform and are part of a bigger lot of testing that's taking place. Not ideal I know. 


10/10/2013 at 15:49

Not ideal - but communication is always better than a stony silence.


10/10/2013 at 16:37

Thanks for the update Ben. At least we now know that something is being done.

10/10/2013 at 19:56

Ben, do we have an update on people not getting email notifications of posts on followed threads? From what I understand it doesn't affect everybody but I've had it since April. 

10/10/2013 at 20:36

You can have some of mine Andi!

14/10/2013 at 13:40

Hi Andi, if you go into my settings forum settings you'll see you can tick to receive email notificiations for your followed threads, however, there is an issue with the followed threads currently which is also affecting the notifications.


14/10/2013 at 16:14

Ben -'I've not been receiving emails notifications all day - and now - i've just received 15 in one go.

Also - writing a reply on the ipad still crashes safari or results in me not being able to finish a reply... oh and the spell check still isnt working.

Any update?

14/10/2013 at 16:17
