I find that threads where there are link after link in one post after the other take a very long time to load. After a few hundred posts containing links it appears that babble's program does not work well. It seems to me how long a thread takes to load is somehow linked to the length of the thread and the number of external links.

Maybe a resident techie can tell me whether it is possibly the problem that Boom Boom on dial up is experiencing.   When I use a rerouting program for security in internet cafes I get the 502 Error message on most of the BC election threads and some of NDPP's long threads that contain many great links but little else.

I'm back after a three month absence, I'm still on dialup, and babble is still as slow for me as it always has been, but now I'm getting this message every second time I click on a babble thread, and evrytime I try to delete a post from my Inbox:

 

Rabble.ca is temporarily unavailable

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

(Error 503 Service Unavailable) 

 

It really is bloody frustrating, because the other site (BNR) doesn't give me any problems at all. I may just give up trying to make this place work for me.

"babble is rabble.ca... 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. "

No it isn't. Babble is where the mod tells you to shut up cuz he doesn't believe the same things as we do.

Babble is where the moderator is the castigator. Its a FAKE site, not operated by the left but by the right.

Just got this - for the techies' enjoyment:

The site works perfectly well for me on high speed wifi here at the motel, but, sadly, tomorrow I go back to dialup. Cry

 

Xplornet sent a techie out to my community last summer to install new satellite dishes - but could not get a signal from their new satellite. Their old satellites still work but the old satellite dishes aren't available now.

 

Meanwhile, TELUS has installed high speed cable broadband at the community clinic, but so far has refused to install any residential addresses.

My options are all gone for highlighting or inserting images.

As well the spell check only works intermittently. (it is now,phew) Since I have been experiencing spell check problems it seems other peoples spelling is also hit and miss.

Anyone else having those problems?

As well yesterday I had a hard time getting into rabble or babble and other sites worked just fine.

I've never had spellchek on Babble. Meanwhile, I'm back on dialup, and starting to get error messages again - but only when I try to post.

Boom Boom Boom Boom's picture

I get an error message every time I try to post, and have to 'refresh' the page and re-post.

 

Am I the only babbler on dialup and experiencing this? Frown

Posting is now okay - just getting the following error message while using the Babble 'search' function.

Rabble.ca is temporarily unavailable

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

(Error 503 Service Unavailable)

The thread Idle No More doesn't show up in my TAT. What gives?

Unionist

Re: Active Topics page.

Prior to the upgrade, you could "page" backwards to earlier AT entries to find a thread which might have slipped off the first most recent page.

That is no longer possible. Now, if a thread hasn't had a new post in 2 or 3 days, it's sometimes very difficult to locate.

Could "paging" please be returned to the AT page?

Thanks.

ETA: Whoops - my apologies - I forgot that Summer had made this exact proposal [url=http://rabble.ca/babble/rabble-reactions/darn-tat]two months ago[/url]. Looking forward to hearing back from the techies on this and other issues (disappearing threads and posts).

 

NDPP

I just posted an article to the 'One Billion Rising Feb 14, 2013' thread.

http://rabble.ca/comment/1423886#comment-1423886

Yet nothing appeared/registered on the Active Topics page.

What's up?

Unionist

That thread was opened by epaulo13 - and, like my threads: 1) all his posts were "disappeared"; and 2) the thread itself disappeared from the forum listing and from Active Topics.

I'll PM the mods and they can fix it.

One day at a time.

Thank-U...

Happy days are here again! Just think of all my fans who have been languishing! Thank you, CF.

..my apoligies for that thread. that is good news catchfire! txs to the crew!

Catchfire Catchfire's picture

Sorry, epaulo! I didn't mean to implicate you -- I just mean that Ensler's recent actions have turned her from a dubious character to an atrocious one. No apologies necessary, of course!

paolo

..i felt embarrassed when it came up and to say sorry helped a bit.
