Unable to see new posts -- Anyone else have this problem?

Post by Fate Flyer on Mon Oct 19, 2009 8:15 am

This has been going on since probably the creation of FOG for me, and I am thinking it might be a Safari/Mac thing, but do the icons not turn blue for when their are new posts for anyone else (either for the forums or for the topics or both)? I was just curious. It's something that has made remembering to find topics that I was involved in very difficult.

Axiom and I are still considering moving FOG to our own host, where we would not only have complete and total control, but all these little Forumotion bugs and problems would also disappear.

It works for me. Although sometimes they randomly disappear. Like I will be checking topics and I know I haven't seen them all and then all the topics will be marked as read. That probably doesn't help with your question though. Laughing

I can see them, and I'm using a Dell. However, like Sunwolf stated above, occationally the page would seem to 'refresh' itself so that all the blue icons disapear. I'm not certain if it's a setting hidden away somewhere, (where maybe after so many unread posts accure, it starts over?) Or if it's automatically cleared at a certain point in the day. That must be frustrating, Fate! Maybe we can try a good ol, menacing fist shake, and it'll whip it back into shape. Smile

It happens to Ryona and I all the time, but that is because we are constantly logging each other off. I know that it happens if you log and and log back on. It seems to reset everything as "read." I've never seen it happen otherwise, though.

This seems like an awesome idea, but after reading what your schedule is like this quarter I definitely wouldn't recommend doing it now. We can all deal with Foumotion bugs ***stops for a second, squashing a forumotion bug as it crawls across the board*** for a little longer. Wink

Sounds like this is an issue that kind of comes and goes with you guys too. Once in awhile, I'll be lucky enough to be able to see the new posts (like just now, for instance -- yay! XD). Almost all the time though, the entire board looks like there isn't anything new for me to read lol.

I really do apologize that some of you are having this happen to you too, even if it is just some of the time. I get to experience it a lot, so I know it's annoying, so again, I really am sorry.

When/if we do get our own host for FOG, Axiom would be doing 99% of the work (since I really don't understand what all that entails and how to go about doing it -- which is why, thank goodness, I have my fiancé haha). Still, his schedule is much like mine: busy. He works full time in addition to being a student, so it's going to be interesting figuring out when would be the best time for this.

However! Let me make it clear that FOG will not be going down periodically or anything if/when we do move to our own hosting site. Axiom would have the entire thing set up and ready before we even think about moving. FOG would have to go down obviously for the move itself, but it won't need to be down for the process of recreating FOG over at our host. So, I don't want to cause any worry or panic about that. If FOG does go down periodically, you have Forumotion to thank for that. Mad

In all honesty, this only happens to me if the threads haven't had a new post in at least half a day. Otherwise, it remains blue until I read it or until I see the forum in which it's sitting.

One problem I have been having lately is either getting email notifications days late or not at all. It's only been happening for the last few days, but it's super annoying. ._.

I guess I don't really have that many problems with this bug. I'm involved mostly in threads either I've created myself or stuff that interests me. I've noticed it a small amount but not enough to really make me get frustrated about. I guess another reason for this is because I'm not to involved in other threads around the community cause of all the crap I'm working on personally. My RP projects, art projects, and artwork resume is enough to keep me busy. I don't really worry about little things such as this bug (it's little to me anyways).

I do now how frustrating things like this can be. Hopefully the problem is fixed once the solution is found but I'm sure the powers at be have a lot of their plate anyways. Things usually work out in the end. I'm use to having that kind of patience with services like this one.

All in good time Fate, all in good time.

That sounds like it probably has something to do with all the other little issues Forumotion boards have been experiencing, Kathryn. Sorry that that's happening though. For awhile there, PMs were even down, which was also rather irksome.

I'm glad it hasn't really affected you much, Tkwiget.

Usually things do get worked out in the end, thankfully. The purpose of having our own host though would not only eliminate our dependancy on Forumotion and thus directly affect us if they have problems, but it would also allow us the freedom do have complete control, meaning we would be able to do a whole lot more and could better accommodate people and their suggestions for the forum. We would essentially be able to create and do anything, which also means we would be able to have different themes/skins for you guys to choose from (something that we have been wanting to do for awhile).

Well if I knew how to do that sort of thing I certainly would offer it but even if I did it sounds like a lot of work and a lot of money.

Hey I'm game with whatever decision you guys make. Administrators are like US Presidents, I will support them no matter what (cause I'm a suck-up and brown-noser.... nawwwwh jk.... well maybe sorta xD ).

In the long run I think switching from Forumotion will be the better choice. We've seen unwanted ad consperacies rear their ugly heads, failure to recognize that IBM sucks ass, complete idiocy in general, and an admin of an English help board that (as his name suggests) OBVIOUSLY CAN'T SPEAK THE DAMN LANGUAGE!

At first I can only imagine that things might seem a little...awkward. How one would transfer important threads (like current roleplays, or hot discussion threads in the OOC forums), I don't know, but a solution will come, as Tkwiget said, in good time.

Why be professional when you can be adorable? XD

I think my email notifications have stopped being stupid. I'm getting most of them on time now. ^^_^^

I just recently noticed this. If I keep the new posts page open for awhile, it does a 'reset'.
