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

Not really. I use the quick quote a lot, so for me it is one hit on the backspace button then refresh with F5 :P

I only use quick quote/reply. I guess we are both set in our ways to change now.

Not as far as I know.

[QUOTE="horgen123"][QUOTE="Dracula68"] 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.Dracula68

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.

I never get a double post that way, only when I hit refresh during bonk.

This is affecting the comments sections of union articles. I posted once, and it counted it as two posts and did not count them at all in the counter. Help now!

So wait, this bonk glitch was here early yesterday morning... then why is it still here? page isn't loading after I tried making a post, that fact that its still here and hasn't been fixed even after all these hours is beyond ridiculous if you ask me. (Unless it disappeared for a certain time but came back here recently since then.)
#111 Posted by jediknight52501 (69715 posts) -
and Bink is back again.
#112 Posted by Captain52 (448 posts) -
So this site has loading issues when I try to submit a post, called the bonk glitch... and to add insult to injury, level updating STILL has not yet been fixed either. I'm gonna go with the entire site's dev team currently on July 4th vacation. Wait, this post went through with no trouble, so I guess its gone now... who woulda thought? :P

It is just playing with the tech staff here. Coming and going as it will.

Buzzump...happening again.
#116 Posted by worlock77 (22547 posts) -

Any idea when you guys will actually get around to fixing it, rather than just saying that you're fixing it?

#117 Posted by Dracula68 (33109 posts) -
Posting to say BONK is still around and the site seems really sluggish too. Takes me at least 10-15 seconds from the time I click on a thread till the time I get it to open.

My settings must have changed cause I had it set to read pm's via e-mail specifically because of BONK! and was working awesome up until a few weeks ago. To make matters worse, I can't get to Fuse to check my settings. *rips out hair if he had any*

I can't open my Inbox, this is my second post after Bonk! cropped up again.

Wait...are you bald, or have a crewcut?:P

I can grow hair in some spots--bald in others so I shave with hair clippers on the lowest setting and not a razor as I would be left a bloody mess.

Got a small favor to ask in reference to Bonk!, Drac.

Can you force refresh the entire server?:P

#126 Posted by topsemag55 (19063 posts) -

Looks like it stopped for the moment, Drac. My inbox opened.

That was odd. I finally got into Fuse and my settings are the same but I have not been getting any e-mails....

Bonk! is in full force tonight. When can we expect GS to fix this?

Sometime around the 5th of Never.

Had every post start Bonking out since earlier this evening. Logged out for several hours, and it's still bonkinging every post for me as well. And the site seems really really bogged down.

#135 Posted by Wanderer5 (25726 posts) -

It seems like unlike before (or even earlier today) the bonking is a lot faster when submitting a post, like automatically.

#136 Posted by thom_maytees (3669 posts) -

It seems that there is a new Ooops! screen due to bonk!

#137 Posted by Horgen (111157 posts) -
It is there with every post I make now.
#138 Posted by killerband55 (107961 posts) -

i hope this ends soon

#139 Posted by worlock77 (22547 posts) -

This is pathetic.

#140 Posted by bbkkristian (14967 posts) -
Its back... We were going on a streak too. :x
#141 Posted by SuperKaio-ken (322 posts) -
I get it every-time I post, my post count is also not going up anymore.
#142 Posted by Dracula68 (33109 posts) -
Remember this is the weekend folks!

What does it matter if it's the weekend?

#144 Posted by RobotOpBuddy (65295 posts) -
^Weekend means nothing will be done about it until next week begins due to lack of dev staff over the weekends. I love how I somehow manage to avoid being affected by this most the time lol; seems it's very intermittent whatever is causing it though, I'd blame comic con, but there was many reports before that started, so it's quite possible/likely it's not just due to higher than normal server loads...that and I have no idea how many/few are bothering to watch the comic-con streams, certainly less than the amount at E3 with the very limited selection of games that are there. Edit: Spoke too soon: just got hit with an oops page when posting (1st time in ages like), post still went through though so no harm done.
#145 Posted by konvikt_17 (22368 posts) -

yup, got BONK as well.

Post count seems to have stopped going up as well.

#146 Posted by konvikt_17 (22368 posts) -

testing in chrome.

yup, still bonk with no increasing post count

It has been coming and going since early June. Just as levelling problems started around that time too.

You'd think after how many times this has happened they'd have it fixed by now, but nope.

It's almost like it happens mostly in the summer when kids are out of school and the traffic increases. Maybe CBS needs better servers or a bigger pipe to handle all the traffic.

I got Bonk! when posting this too. I only had one post all day that did not get Bonk!ed. That was a surprise.
