I'm getting Bonk! in posts again, and it also won't let me view any of my PMs. :(

#2 Posted by Shadowchronicle (25977 posts) -

I get it when I post and when I try to view my inbox.

#3 Posted by topsemag55 (19063 posts) -

Yep, the good old HTTP 500 error is rampaging again.

#4 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -

Alright, I've let them know. I'm seeing white paging and pm is taking a while to load, then sometimes white pages

#5 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -

We might be okay here in a moment. Crossing fingers!

#6 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -

Alright, I think we're okay. My posts are going through promptly, and my pm inbox is now loading. Let us know if you still have problems.

#7 Posted by Shadowchronicle (25977 posts) -
Mine is fixed.
#8 Posted by JodyR (16412 posts) -
Mine is fixed. shadowchronicle

#9 Posted by topsemag55 (19063 posts) -

Thanks Jody, posting and PM inbox is functioning properly.:)

#10 Posted by The-Apostle (12176 posts) -
Yeah, it works now, thanks. ;)

I have 2 from Jody..managed to get to main inbox to see title of PMs and who they're from after a little while, still can't manage to get far enough to actually read them though >_>

Pfft, pass, I don't want my email inbox flooded with PMs I can read from the site anyway :? *hates on fuse more* quite sure fuse is the cause of the problem in the 1st place :evil:

No, you are not understanding. You don;t get a link to GS. You read them in your e-mail.
#19 Posted by Dracula68 (33102 posts) -
Alright working fine again.

Oh I understood, the thing is I don't want the email in the 1st place, as I'm likely to check them sooner via the site 1st anyway, and this sort of bug isn't common enough to warrant my email account getting filled up with PMs from the site just because I don't check it daily. The facebook spam saying that I haven't logged in forever is bad enough.
Alright working fine again.Dracula68
Yup, once again I seem to have missed the bulk of the bug, with it disappearing under an hour after I get online, lucky me :L

Oh gotcha. I actually love e-mails as you can read at your leisure. Also, I notice e-mails way before I would notice a pm here mostly due to my own personal bug of plus 1 garbage. And I can read them without having to log into GS.

This error used to occur long before Fuse existed. It being down is just another symptom.
#23 Posted by Dracula68 (33102 posts) -
Bumping since it is back as of right now.
#24 Posted by Haziqonfire (36344 posts) -
Yeah, I can't read PM's. What the bonk is this.
#25 Posted by Dracula68 (33102 posts) -
Seems to be fine now.

I see that but it is 2 days later and it WAS fixed when I posted.
#28 Posted by Shadowchronicle (25977 posts) -
When posting it is really slow right now, I'm not getting a Bonk! message but its pretty slow compared to all the sites I visit.

Wouldn't hurt to ask Gmax if he has a fix for that plus 1 bug, he might very well have one.

I might have unintentionally and/or indirectly gotten him into his +1 predicament when I told him how to "un-ignore" a user, since his issue started sometime afterward. I don't know that for sure though. In any case, I naturally have a couple theories about what's going on, but without wanting to risk things getting any worse I think we've agreed that trying to live with it might be the safer course for the time being. Really though, someone who knew how the database was organized could probably root around and figure out what was really happening. Sorry again Drac.

gmax

Yes, I blame everything on gmax! I asked you how to un-ignore users so it is my fault. I got use to checking my pm box every once in a while now. In the beginning it was annoying :P

A while back I sent Drac a way to unignore a user, but I didn't discover it until after his bug occurred. You can use a PM from yourself to an ignored user if you don't have one from them.

Chances are my method did the same thing - I figured it out from something way back; it might have been something like that. I never got a +1 problem in my testing though, so I have no idea what's going on with that. Somewhat off topic I know, but did we ever figure out if there was a way to get a complete list of users you are currently ignoring? Edit - I got a white page when I posted this a minute ago... Not surprising, I guess.

Undoubtedly. I'm actually impressed they've not had to turn the forums off this year.

Happened to me about 2-3 times. Just letting that out.

Okay. What's the issue all the other times you guys have this problem when it's not E3?

You are asking me who works over 3000 miles away from everybody and who is not qualified fix a thing on this site?

Well, you DID imply that the problem was caused by to much traffic from E3...

It doesn't take much common sense to come to that conclusion. Internal server errors (i.e. the bonk error) are caused by a number of reasons, one of which is heavy server load.

The list of ignored users has been known for ages (as in, several years) to my knowledge o,o anyway, it's here - note however that if there's no one on the list it won't show anyone anyway, and ofc you can replace 'self' with a specific username, it is possible to view other's ignore lists as well (provided you can view their profile) - and Drac in particular appears to have no one on that list at this specific point in time, frankly, most users have no one on the ignore list, only a few do.

Yeah that list has always been there but there was never a way to remove them. I had 14 at one point.

True, if you didn't keep a PM then there was no other normal way.

So basically this isn't getting fixed till E3 ends?

I completely forgot about that. But this year Fuse keeps going offline instead, which isn't ideal for most people since they can't easily see game updates.

Guys, here's a quick fix if you're looking for game updates: Go to your profile and click "My Updates". It''s the old look but it'll get rid of the mail icon telling you you have updates.

Happening pretty bad right now making me dupe post without actually hitting refresh or the back button(things that normally make users double post)
