babble is rabble.ca's discussion board but it's much more than that: it's an online community for folks who just won't shut up. It's a place to tell each other — and the world — what's up with our work and campaigns.

Site down

Hope the continuing problems get fixed. I'm still geting "validation error" and "page not available" messages five or six months after the upgrade.  Smile

Me too.  It's a pain, but hopefully the fix will come tomorrow evening.

I certainly hope rabble has made alternate arrangements to keep us entertained for those three hours!  We might have to talk to our families or something otherwise.

I wonder if babble is so busy today because it goes down tomorrow?

Michelle! Good to see you! I guess it is like quitting facebook makes you spend more time face to face with friends?

Fingers crossed those nasty validations errors are behind us.  I know we can count on you to let us know if you come across any. Cool

I had trouble getting on this morning, along with the "page not available" message, but it seems okay now. What happened this morning?

Same here. Rabble.ca was totally down for maybe half hour.

Serious problems remain. Just a few minutes ago I posted something here, and it did not post.

And, for 24 hours everytime I tried to get on babble I got this message:

Page Unavailable

We're redirecting you to the homepage in 5 seconds.

(Error 503 Service Unavailable)

Page Unavailable

testing, testing, testing

so, what's going on??? Frown

So, in one of our ongoing attempts to solve the validation errors and some load time issues, we have switched rabble to different servers -- that happened Wednesday afternoon (evening to you Eastern overlords). Because of the way babble functions, it has produced some very long load times while the site updates its cache (I think that's the best way to explain it, although I don't 100% understand it myself). This will improve over time as the servers cache babble. There are some other speedbumps along the way (like yesterday's crash). Thanks again for your Job-like patience, babblers.

I made a couple of posts in two separate threads and they did not show up either in the thread or on TAT.

Things will get sorted out.  In the meanwhile you might want to hire a sherpa to navigate some of those speed bumps.
