I have a suggestion. Everyone stop complaining about site bugs for the time being.

There's nothing Riven can do and everyone complaining to him is really not going to do anything besides aggravate him.

The thread is likely slow because of a database issue ... (though, to note, it only takes a couple seconds longer to load for me)

It likely has to do with the way the site gets pages of information. Again, not something Riven can go in and fix easily.



Blame it on Microsoft, God does.

I don't think anyone complained so much as pointed out the delay.

That particular thread was one I started and I don't get gold stars for longevity if it remains open. I only suggested we begin a new one since as you pointed out ,nothing can be done to speed it up at the present time.


I don't think its worth keeping open if the alternative is minutes in waiting.

Besides, Riven asked a required 3 more confirmations. What else was supposed to happen?

Well again, I won't stop anyone from starting another "Recently Found" thread. It's a staple of the Pit I would agree, but it is just another thread after all. I'm not reigning any command over it smiley

I intended it as more of a suggestion than a mandate... You're doing what I would do any way; seeing if enough people thought the thread was overloaded, and if there were, you can make one final post redirecting to the new thread, and I could lock it for ya. That way we wouldn't get any confusion.

I never suggested it because it wasn't an issue for me. But if there is a collective voice asking for a change, let it be!

About the issues... I don't mind peeps mentioning it in the bugs thread. It's a good way to record known issues if anything, but in all honestly I can't fix most, if not any of them. I know a little bit of HTML and PHP and SQL databases to get me by and talk with someone who does, but I'm not going to tamper with something I wouldn't know how to resolve if I messed up. Maybe one day I'll sit down and finish reading my HTML, XML & PHP books and practice more so that I can self-sustain the Pit, but that will be a long ways away from now. I'll acknowledge the issues, but don't get your hopes up on having them fixed any time soon. Sorry. smiley

I want to clarify I was referring to the "This thing still isn't fixed" and "You should get on this, Riven" type comments mostly. I guess that might not have been obvious.

Sorry if my "may wanna look into it BUD" comment made such a stir.. was trying to be polite. Seemed the best way to end that paragraph. I look at it from Crono's eyes and I can see the DUH in it now, like a no shit sherlock statement.

Honestly the delay is not too bad sometimes but others it is rather long... I am not sure it is anything with the pit so much as it maybe where it is hosted? Maybe peek times the servers get choked? I don't know.. just an idea.

Riven the wife is in school for programming, want her and her instructors to take a look at the code?

hmm, it's not just case sensitive?

Either way good to point it out. Our resident web coder has moved on however. This will be something to fix for v7 of SnarkPit.

And yet no Super admin out to tell him not to stir things up.. Nice how it can be so one sided here. smiley

There's nothing one sided about it: he didn't actually say anything. If he had, and it was offensive, I would have said something.

That chip on your shoulder must be getting heavy by now, any plans to get rid of it in the near future perhaps?

Sure, as soon as you bend over I know where to leave it. smiley

So by not saying anything and being coy, he gets a pass, even though you and I both know he is stirring shit up. No problem. Guess you live in Florida, Why do I feel like TRAYVON right about now.

You need to grow a thicker skin. The guy didn't even say anything.
So what if he's being coy? So what if his comment is negative?

There is a difference between openly instigating someone with insults or dredging up past arguments; and just showing a (alleged) distaste in something someone says.

I don't know why you don't understand this ... but this is how the community is. It's an open community, people have the freedom to say things as long as they are respectful of other individuals, even if those things are negative. What is NOT allowed is insults, threats, and tantrums.

If you can somehow convince me ellipsis are disrespectful or insulting, I'll listen to this specific matter further.

Now, I'm sorry if you feel like some sort of victim here, but the reality is that is not what's happening. If you want to discuss this more feel free to PM me. But stop lashing out in the boards IMMEDIATELY.



Blame it on Microsoft, God does.

Well as an example, when you said I was trying to instigate something when I told Orph Id love to see him start a a site and then he called me a name insulting me, and you did nothing to step in and tell him he was wrong. So there is a clear bias here. I have a plenty thick skin, would just like some fairness to your admining.

Oh wait this is an open board and we are allowed to say what we want, but not I, I have to PM it or stop voicing my opinion.. yeah I see how it is.

G4MER ... I didn't notice his comment until tonight. I sent Orpheus a PM about his comment.

I'm sorry I missed the comment, but I want you to stop talking about this in this thread. Not to silence you like some government conspiracy, but because it's entirely off topic.



Blame it on Microsoft, God does.
