    @FeistyGibblets, The threads still exist, they just don't get boosted to the top when a member adds a comment.

    The recent Dalai Lama one. This Nginx demon might haunt us, and I think the damage it could do is at least a bit serious. People are less likely to post on a forum if their precious, oh so precious, words could possibly go up in smoke, and as much as internet fora are a potential for Dharma discussion, they are also driven by the intellectual vanity of know-it-all posters like myself and others here, though I daren't identify anyone but myself.

  • federicafederica Seeker of the clear blue sky... Its better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak out and remove all doubt Moderator

    Yes, same here.... My only option is to contact @Linc again and get an update if one even exists.

  • JeroenJeroen Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter Netherlands Veteran

    I noticed it happened just after Alex’s last post, so perhaps there is something in the posting operation that causes this to manifest. Kinda reassuring that it is not random corruption.

    They're often your threads. I hope you don't feel singled out and victimised.

    No worries, fella... we're actually none of us really sure what triggers this... But one thing's for sure, even if a member is "responsible" it's never deliberate...

    Such is the transitory nature of all things....

    Im now getting the nginx Bad Gateway error on the ‘A minor point about rebirth’ thread as well... is it my imagination or is this getting worse?

    An apt message for a thread on rebirth, intruding on all of our theory's in saying that all that continues on is a programing error that ends up being pretty tough to address.

    It's definitely the last comment in each thread that's causing it to crash, but I cannot for the life of me determine a pattern. I could just bring them back by moving or deleting the last comment (ironically, once moved, the comment no longer causes a problem) but I'd rather leave them until I solve this so I have evidence to test against.

    So if that’s the case, it can’t be the content of the comment that causes the problem. Perhaps it is the content metadata? There must be some other (badly formatted or corrupted) data associated with the comment which gets rewritten during the move operation, which causes the error. Perhaps that is a lead, and what is in the corrupted data might give a clue as to how it actually gets in there. My bet would be a buffer overrun or something of that type.

    You lucky thing.

    There are many things I can't do. Through intense and systemic practice I have learned to accept this.

    meanwhile ...
    with another thread ...

    In the process of doing this, somehow the mobile theme was changed (it was throwing errors for a while). I took my best guess at what it was set to before. Apologies that it's off-brand (wrong colors) but it's the best mobile experience I think we can provide at the moment. I literally cannot remember if this is what it was before.

    I have noticed that the part of the sidebar that links to threads selected by topic has vanished, as has the topic drop-down menu in the new discussion form...

    Ahh finally I can answer people on all my threads... I feel fulfilled.

    I could not open any thread. When going to newbuddhist, just a blank background wallpaper appeared.

    This was using my preferred and previously working 'Brave' browser.
    I am now using working Safari browser.

  • lobsterlobster Veteran

    Back on Brave.
    Turned the shield off (it may be a new default setting when I recently upgraded). No shield but am now running Newbuddhist in Brave Browser 🥳

    Alas, I am now getting the Bad Gateway screen of death on more than half a dozen recent threads, including the previously immune Word Association Game.

    I can access those threads when I am signed out, but not when signed in.

  • JeroenJeroen Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter Netherlands Veteran

    Curious because everything seems to be fine for me including the Word Association Game... I was getting php server errors last night though they seem to have cleared up today.

  • JeroenJeroen Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter Netherlands Veteran

    My mistake... The errors are still there. The website crashes on my iPhone giving a “null value passed where there should be an instance of Vanilla\AddOn” somewhere in the php code. I’ve mailed Lincoln a crash log.

    But it works fine on my iPad. Both running the latest os revisions.

  • JeroenJeroen Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter Netherlands Veteran

    Yes, that’s the same as my error, or at least it’s the same function. Hopefully on the crash report I sent you will be able to see the full call stack.

  • ShoshinShoshin No one in particular Nowhere Special Veteran

    Same here it happened on my phone and then when I tried to log in on my laptop... It's all good now though...
