500: Internal Server Error when clicking on Forum History

#1 Edited by LoG-Sacrament (20397 posts) -

There doesn't appear to be a thread on this so here goes:

Clicking on the "Forum History" button (when in the account toolbar or accessed through my profile) brings up a "500: Internal Server Error" message with the new dungeon crawler game and all that.

The URL is http://www.gamespot.com/profile/forums/

Try your account specific forum history link: http://www.gamespot.com/profile/LoG-Sacrament/forums/

You can also access that page by clicking on the public URL option next to the edit profile and messages button on the generic profile page followed by pressing the forums (history) button on the public profile.

It seems that forum histories are working fine, there's just something wrong with that particular page link, resulting in a http 500 internal server error instead of displaying the appropriate page.

That's not working correctly either. I don't get a 500 error when I view my history that way, but I can only view the first page. No matter what page number I click or type into the GET variable in the URL, it only displays the first page.

@Byshop: That would be because the page variable appears to be completely broken for forum history pages for some reason - and has been for a little while actually, for some reason I assumed that was fixed and never thought to check. Thanks for pointing it out, I'll raise that as well.

PS: a SkiFree avatar? I haven't seen anything from that in ages, had almost forgotten it even existed.

@s_h_a_d_o: It's not that I've forgotten, so much that I've been so busy with E3 that I haven't had much time to spend in the forums, or out of the office, or sick, but enough excuses from me, and apologies. These updates will begin appearing regularly again, starting this Friday, with a big one to cover the past few weeks.

As for these particular issues (pagination not working and the /profile/forums/ link not working), I've filed these as bugs and got them in our work queue. Thanks for reporting these!

Cool, ta. :)

Fingers crossed this comment...

This is actually being addressed in a complete overhaul of our notifications system, which should be released this week and will allow you to control each type of notification on an individual basis.

... means we'll be able to separate wheat from chaff, and prioritise the tracking of Friend's blogs (again).

@s_h_a_d_o: Both of these bugs are now fixed. Yay!

As for prioritizing the tracking of Friends' blogs, what do you mean by that? BTW, our new notifications are out now, so you can check the settings in your profile settings page now!

Yeah, I had a look at the new settings - tried to disable emails for these two, but they wouldn't save changes and kept reverting to what's displayed...

Well, I realise we can now specify how we're notified regarding blog posts, but I was hoping we might see a separate feed incorporated into our Feed tab.

Also, when you say "fixed", does that take into account the fact that I now receive notification of having quoted myself? :|

They seem to working fine for me, it's possible they weren't working earlier due to the system being recently added, so it may be worth trying again

That would be in reference to the forum history pages - both pagination and the non-username specific forum links now work, though the performance seems a little poor. That said, the site in general seems rather slow for me at the moment, both are probably temporary.

It works for me now.

Also, I know this comment will just be ignored but...

Now if only we can unfavorite multiple boards at once, like we used to be able to.

@s_h_a_d_o: We've identified an issue that causes this to happen and will be fixing this. Thanks for reporting it!

It's working for me now too.

Regarding the avatar, I made it myself using screen grabs from the game. :)
