Site and/or forum bugs or things not working

Recommended Posts

I think it's an ID number mix up: 19204 vs. 19205, for example. This might require the creation of a custom process that walks across each record - a tool that's complicated to build, and will only be run once. (only a guess).

 

Those 3 links above contain both an ID number, and a map name. If links like this need to be preserved (I imagine that's true), doing fixups could require some messy work.

 

Anything I can do to assist?

Only noticed last night that there's no strike through, superscript, and insert/remove numbered list buttons on mobile.

This is maybe dumb but for some reason i'm not able to embed youtube videos. No matter what is still showing as text instead. Maybe i accidently disabled but how activate that thing again? I'm not able find such a thing.

edit: it's fixed itself somehow, wonder what happened.

(srry for the spam)

You can at least use superscript with the "sup" tag.

I've noticed that pasting a link will not turn into a link by itself unless it can fit on a single line. This might possibly only affect the mobile site.

 

For example if the link is long enough to split onto a new line in the reply, it does not get turned into a pressable link. Changing screen rotation to go landscape mode and pasting the link works as intended.

Another issue, sometimes the site is just unbearably slow to load for me. Other sites load fine and video loads fine, so it's the site or my connection to the site. Sometimes things take 5 seconds and others it may take a full minute to load a page.

This might sound quaint, but sometimes the site is falling victim to spambots. I don't have a particularly good defense system in place to deflect automated attacks, which are unfortunately a reality for anyone running a web site in 2018. Just now I looked into your complaint and found a spambot that had been pegging the site's CPU at 100% for the last day or so.

Before someone suggests Cloudflare, let me remind you: I do not have access to the DNS servers of doomworld.com and I am unable to use Cloudflare at all, which is one reason I would like to switch to cacoworld.com or what have you, since I do not seem able to procure this domain name.

Wow what a difference it seems to have made. Two second load times every page so far since logging in. Damn those spambots!

I was going to post the same thing, but I thought it was just my connection having fun. I guess that wasn't the case after all.

The latest most advanced russian spam bot, at least when I (happened to) look into it was touted as having the ability to defeat word CAPTCHAs, so the capability is out there. Apropos of the discussion.

My apologies if this is not the right thread for this question, but when I follow someone, is there a way to set things up so I only receive notifications when they actually create new threads, and not for every comment they post?

 

The reason I ask is that there are a few Doomworld members whose work I like, and if they release something new, I don't want to miss it -- so I currently follow them. However, in practice this means that I am sometimes bombarded with notifications when they are simply interacting with other people on the board (often in threads that do not necessarily interest me), which is not what I'm after.

I'd like to also know the answer to that question, it's the main reason I don't follow anyone at all and wonder how my 50-something followers don't go insane :P

It would be nice to be able to customize the notifications honestly (as in, receive notifications only from certain people you follow), if it's possible to introduce such a feature. I'm following a number of topics and people, so usually if I don't check my notifications each day their number can easily go through the roof (like, 90 notifications in 2 days). 

 

I sometimes wonder how the followers who actually read my posts often don't go insane since I'm a spammer (what, it's quite obvious, no point in denying reality).

turn off "Someone I am following makes a post" 

 

Thank you, but unfortunately this turned out not to be as useful as I had hoped. While I have stopped receiving notifications for each new comment posted by the people I follow, I've just noticed that I now no longer receive notifications for new topics/threads they create either. For me, that pretty much defeats the purpose of following them in the first place.

 

Is a middle ground possible (i.e. to receive notifications just for new topics/threads created by followed members)? It would be nice if it were.

Can someone explain to me the meaning of the 4 powerups in each post? The Megasphere, the Invinceble, the invisible and the Supercharge, they're all "Likes". Is it a way to tell how much you liked the post from 1 to 4? And if it is, What's the low and high?

There is no difference between them, unless you give each sphere meaning. All four spheres are present mostly due to their cool factor.

Thanks!

So, could you or someone get me an example of a meaning to each of the spheres?

If this is already mentioned in the preceding 41 pages, my apologies.

 

I tried to sign up to DW for over a year using various email addresses, but the email verification would never show up in the inboxes until I used this particular domain (gmx.com). Is there a doomworld filter against particular domains? Or did I just happen to hit a few email providers that would bounce emails from doomworld? Initially, I thought the latter, but after the same result from multiple domains, I thought the former. If it is the former, could DW admins please post this list before a user signs up, or notify the user of rejected domains during the sign-up process?
