    Default Double Post - Very Annoying

    I tried posting the Joop Homme Very Sexy In Pink thread. It timed out, and the browser said it couldn't display anything. I checked the Male Fragrance Discussion board on three occasions over 10 minutes, refreshing each time, and this post hadn't shown up. Confident that the post hadn't been posted, I hit the "Submit" button again.

    Then both posts showed up! I don't understand what is happening here, as it has happened twice before.

    Regards,
    Renato

    The whole site has been all F'd up lately. Ridiculously so.

    I noticed that some people's threads are appearing 4 and 5 times. I think because the server was overloaded, the databases weren't getting updated as quickly as they should. I looked at a couple of threads last night, and there were posts showing on the thread that hadn't shown up on the main page.

    I think a modicum of patience is called for at the moment and try resist hitting the submit button too often

    It's all very curious, compounded by my having a internet connection that is lousy around lunch and dinner time, such that all sites don't load well, including Basenotes. I still don't understand though, why Basenotes works well in my early morning hours, when there are a heap more users joined on in the northern hemisphere. I'd have thought the lighter traffic from the southern hemisphere would have made things easier for the servers.

    Anyhow, it doesn't really annoy me most of the time, just when I'm trying to fix an error.
    Cheers,

    The server sucks, time to upgrade or get another one.

    I've had this issue a bunch. Times out and then I try and post again. I just ended up figuring out that even if timed out it posts. I'll get a message to "leave the page" too. Some days I can't even get in. Really slow and jacked up.

    Forum performance improved for me a couple of days ago, but now it has regressed. The fragrance directory is not accessible at all.

    Noggs, I just checked the directory and got in straight away.

    The problems seem worse between 6pm -1am UK time when we have Europe, Southern Hemisphere and USA, all battling for server time. At those times, there are a lot of non members reading stuff too, which has a knock on effect for the members.

    I've been having lots of problems with double posting too. Time for an upgrade.

    I have also been having issues with double posts. I agree, an upgrade is needed.

    Clicking once should be sufficient, even if it doesn't show up immediately or takes ages to load.

    Worst perfomance ever.

    Maybe moving from php/mySQL shareware junk and moving to a full-featured MSSQL back end with a .NET / IIS web platform would certainly help. Time for Basenotes to strap on the big boy pants.

    Yeah, there are a lot of simple things administration could do to get this to run smoother, but I have not heard much. I tried to post a thread today and poof, 3 threads appear an hour after I tried posting.

    I hate to say it, but it's nice to see that others are having problems too. Thought it was just me/my computer.

    Double posts are anoying but the front page now has one thread posted 10 times and another posted 7 times. Time to stop visiting this place for a while until this gets sorted out perhaps.

    The problem goes well beyond double posts. Clearly, the server can't handle the amount of traffic it's receiving. Double posts, double comments, timed out pages when loading. At times, the forum is practically inaccessible.

    The first page is full of multi posts now. Wish it would occur to people that the system is slow at updating and there is no need to keep bashing submit etc. Doesn't take a brain surgeon to work it out.

    There are at least NINE dupes of the anamalic chocolate thread.

    The system isn't slow at updating. The system is failing. It's taking me nearly a full minute to have pages load. I usually open links here in new tabs in hopes they'll have loaded by the time I get around to reading them.

    Look at my two duplicate comments above: they're posted a minute apart. Huh? I clicked "Post Quick Reply" once and walked away to get a cup of coffee. I don't know if the issue is the server, the software that runs the forum, or a combination of the two... but... this forum is a mess. It's been a mess for months if not longer and I have to assume it'll continue to be a mess until it experiences a crash with massive data loss, at which point everyone will be screaming bloody murder asking why nothing was done ahead of time to prevent the loss.

    Well, today should be that "ahead of time" and attempting to patch thing up to get by for a while longer isn't the answer. There's such a great community here. It's such a shame the server/software/etc is so bad.

    It is crazy. As someone who enjoys coming on here several times a day, it is increasingly frustrating, and even worse, not hearing for the powers to be does not make it better.

    The other thing, as a splitter, it is extremely difficult. You can see with the increase in issues, splits are taking longer, because potential participants are not not surfing the site like they normally would.

    Imagine, when a split is filled and mailed and I want to send PM's to the people who participated, it could take me as much as 5 minutes per PM just waiting for it to go though. Yes, I have started using e-mail instead, but now I have to keep additional records instead of using the PM file cabinet. Uggghhh

    Don't have to hit submit more than once, it sometimes just acts as if it is stalled, asks if you want to leave page, then posts itself twice!

    This happens to me all the time. Have you noticed the people on line at any given time the service slows down. Maybe a loggoff feature after 5 minutes of inctactivity should lessen the problem I know I have been guilty of not logging off when I'm done but been diligent of logging off.
