Now old-format Unions are Bonk!'d! Actually, does that go here or in the "Unions are glitched" topic?

I also got these problems. Inbox won't load, blank page after posting.

Why does this keep happening constantly? :?

Because the root to this problem isn't easily fixed or possible... I don't know which. Or if something else.

Alright here to report it is still happening as :9:22 am est.

I don't get the bonk page, it just doesn't load.

You get a blank white page?

Yep, I surely know I do. Strange thing is, that if I jump back to the original thread page after I submitted my post, it'll show my post actually went through. Also, am I the only one that notices that post counts haven't seemed to move either?? I know I've been posting a helluva lot since around E3 time, but my post count has apparently been stuck at the same number for a looong minute.

Think this may also an additional symptom of the 'boinking'/blank pages issues? :(

Yeah.
#62 Posted by Diehardgames2 (1018 posts) -
Yeah. I'm getting white pages, and double posting, and my post count hasn't moved since like an hour and a half before I went to bed last night. :( I'm going to bonk bonk when I get a hold of it. :P

My guess for that is if you look at those threads it desn't show you posted in them....at least that is how it is working for me. I am gonna try and check my post history but if I am right it should not show up there either until BONK goes away.

Edit: Well that's strange as it does appear in my post history but I don;t get the mark outside these threads that I posted in. I am confused.

Not necessarily so. For instance, that very post you quoted to was a one done and submitted WHILE still experiencing the boinking/blank page issue. So clearly YOU (and well as anybody else, myself included) can see the post. Matter fact, every single thing I've posted to--across various forums--are exactly in the threads that I posted them in. And others, just like you, have even been able to see/reply/quote to them.

EDIT: LOL, judging by your edited post (as I was typing my this one a few minutes ago to you) you get what I've stated above. :P

#65 Posted by Diehardgames2 (1018 posts) -

It still shows on the main board screen that I've posted in the thread I've just been white paged from. This is really weird. :P

#66 Posted by call_of_duty_10 (4954 posts) -

I can't view my inbox....I always get a white screen with 'Gamespot-BONK!' written on the border.

Please fix this error!

Yeah you gotta try and click it randomly:( It comes and goes. BONK! is happening right now so try a little later.

Inbox is still glitched.

I had a recent post not show up in my post history due to Bonk!.

With the lack of a marker outside the thread I just assumed those posts would not show in the history. THis whole BONK thing is confusing,.

#71 Posted by Diehardgames2 (1018 posts) -
I've just posted in OT with no problems at all. No white page, no double posting and it was added to my post count. Yay! :P
#72 Posted by worlock77 (22547 posts) -

Are any of these near constant issues with the forums ever actually going to be addressed?

It likes to mess with us. Affecting inbox, post count, post history, sometimes stopping the page from loading and what not. :P
#74 Posted by Dracula68 (33102 posts) -
Second day straight this is happening now.
#75 Posted by sunshineisles2 (148 posts) -

Yep, I've got it. To be fair, it might have happened to me before, but I'm rarely here and/or paying attention. Does this happen a lot?

Usually comes and goes fairly quick except the past 2 days now.
#77 Posted by Diehardgames2 (1018 posts) -
It likes to sneak up behind us and bonk us on the head. -_-
#78 Posted by IceAxe18 (608 posts) -
I've been getting a lot of bonks lately when trying to post a message like this. When I do post something and it works it will post my message right away. If it doesn't work it will take a while, and then I get the bonk message.

#80 Posted by The-Apostle (12190 posts) -
At least I did get a blank page for once. That's something... :P
#81 Posted by verbtex (8536 posts) -

This is getting progressively more noticeable, bothersome, and frequent. I haven't been able to make one post over the past 6 hours or so without bonk.

Its just another ordinary day on GS.

*thumbs up* Keep up the good work, guys.

#85 Posted by Diehardgames2 (1018 posts) -
The more it happens the less I'm getting annoyed at it. :P
#86 Posted by Dracula68 (33102 posts) -
It over now? So far I haven't encountered it.

Same. Site has been working fine for me. Level's updated, post count is updating and no more constand 'loading' after a post in a thread. :P

It seems to have been fixed. I haven't encountered any bonk related issues, PM box works fine, fuse is working, post counts/levels are updating.. etc :P I did have a problem with trying to look at some pics on a gamepage though, not sure if that is related. Edit: spoke to soon, I got a bonk when trying to look at some game pics.

Yeah, I had the Bonks when trying to view new images from Dragon Knights, Unreal Engine 4, Miner Wars and a bunch of others. Seems to have been fixed. Thanks guys.

Strange, I haven't encountered a bonk yet. :P

Bonk! is rampaging yet again.

Killed the Inbox as well.

#93 Posted by VanDammFan (4285 posts) -

I have NEVER in the 15 years of web surfing EVER seen a website this slow..One day it works, next day its BONK..next time I log in its 10min of waiting for the page to load..this site "sorry to complain" is horrible at maintaining smooth running servers or something..

Funny...I can close this out...then come right back and it might take 4min to load OR it might load right up...THEN clicking on posting history might take 5min to show OR could load right up...Its almost unusable most times to me..

Today it happened? Well it appears to be gone for the last 45 that I have been logged in at least.
#95 Posted by dalger21 (1169 posts) -
I received this bonk thing for the first time a few days ago while posting in a thread. However, once I hit back, my post was recorded. Not really sure what to make of that tbh. I haven't had any issues with PM's tho. Seems to be completely random.

Hitting the back button or refresh will usually cause you to double post if BONK is around. I just submit a post, kill that tab immediately and open a new one as posts always go through.

It hadn't happened yet but I'll have to remember that the next time I get a "BONK" while replying in a thread.

Yeah, when I posted, even the OOPS! page was displaying. That doesn't always happen, you know it's bad when that page shows up.:P

Hitting backspace until you are in the thread again and then refresh... That way your own post won't show up as unread for yourself.

Too much of a chance for a double post that way. Not hard to open another tab :P
