What happened to Datalounge last night and this morning?
Was it down for maintenance or broken?
Is it happening again?
Only the DL gold card members were allowed in during the overhaul.
So the new format isn't just me, then? Wasn't sure if I'd changed settings.
Liked the prior layout better.
Is anybody else's thread watcher list gone?
I see no changes on the computer but when I use my phone it looks different
r5 on my phone yes.
My thread watcher and all threads were gone for about six hours today. I could only access the stuff in wit and wisdom. Several hours ago, everything came back. Since people are still having problems, I'll keep the page open or it may go back to the glitch state if I shut down for the night.
What happened to the search function? It's been offline for months... is it only for members?
So which threads were whacked?
it dun was broke, glad it it is back.
My phone, too. Don't like it.
Go to Manvox. In the years I've been going there, not once has it shut down.
It's always down between 10am and 10:10am. Every morning.
If you try to post anything during that time, it just hangs forever, and never gets posted.
What a ridiculous time to schedule maintenance or recycle the web servers or app pools or whatever the hell it is they're doing.
Shouldn't they be doing that shit at 4am or something?
Yes, suddenly my ipad will only run the ipad version...& I hate it.
HELP! both at work and at home, the only threads i see are the ones i've commented in...there are no other threads in the general thread list. i am not a paying member, so i'm not sure why this is happening in two places??
Or is DL broken? Can someone help me get all threads back and visible? Thanks!
You can clear out your cookies or try using another browser, R16.
R16 here, i already did that at home. Cleared cookies and history, and it didn't do anything.
And further, why would it happen on two different computers?
I do use Firefox on both though, so maybe i will try another browser - thanks for that suggestion.
I tried Internet Explorer...same deal there.
Chrome doesn't seem to have a problem. Whatever it is, it is the software on this board that is causing the problem. it is buggy as hell.
Like, r2 said it was a timeout period for everyone but the Gold Level members. No MARYS! like r16 allowed.
I hate it when this happens
I literally was about to write a post on a random thread asking anyone else if they were having the same problem.
The site just started working for me right now.
Hate the new version. Hate the green letters...
They fixted my Daddawounge!!!
OH, FANK YOU!!
You fixded it!
Why is the W&W gone? Is it forever?
If so, it's a shame.
Also, the "new" site is just for mobile devices, right? Or is there a new address and all?
it works now.
White people problems. Shut the fuck up. It's a fucking website. You should all spend your time working on your racism instead a complaining about something as dumb as a website.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
