Gypsy,

The "Who's Online" area, above the Shout Box, is not accurately reflecting those currently online.

Mina, it has always been that way to some extent. It usually takes 'some time' for the display to reflect people entering and leaving. I often don't see myself on the list for 10 min occasionally more.

Is that what you are seeing? Or is it something different?

no- Mina is right- the who's online above shoutbox and the actual screen are not reflecting each other and usually do within a refresh

Yeah, it is looking that way. I have been fiddling around for a while now and I agree that it doesn't seem to be updating. I will add it to the list.

Thanks for catching that Mina!!

Mike, I have been online about an hour and still not on the list. And... usually, if I click the Who's Online option, it refreshes for me.

Mea culpa! (Laptop died during my attempt to correct the issue at the time.) Hopefully, I've fixed it now! Please let me know if there are any outstanding issues.

Ummmm ... nope ... if anything, it is worse. The basic presentation on the site ... which had not been a problem ... is now 'whacked out'. I will poke around and see how the other issues are faring. But the 'Who's online' is still not looking 'up to date'.

welll ... when I initially come in, it all looks fine, but a 'refresh' gives me a 'weird' 'main' display. Also ... doesn't seem like Who's Online is working ... unless you are 'stealth' <g>

Soooo ... now that 'Who's Online' is working ... lets look at the other big (IMHO) problem <g>

If I do much of anything ... the main 'forum' display goes 'wonky'. Just click on 'who's who', for example <g>

FWIW ... clicking on 'Forum List' restores the expected display <g>

OK...is there anything else not working right now? Please refresh the page fully (e.g. press the [Ctrl] key and hit [F5]) to ensure that everything's reloaded properly first.

So ... the problem with clicking to refresh 'Who's Online' is still there ... otherwise ... everything else sees good <g>

FWIW ... 'refreshing' the page does not help ... going off site and coming back in everything looks fine <g>

I'll keep poking around <weg>

OK .. so the 'dice roller' is still 'having problems' <sigh>

I =had= tried it earlier and it =seemed= to work, but in the most recent test, if I gave it something more 'complicated' that 'd8' it seems to 'phreaque'. And that was using 'stored' past 'rolls' that had worked, like 'd20,d8'.

Which forum is this happening in? I've tried a few dice rolls, and they seem OK to me.

If anyone is experiencing any issues, please include details as to the forum and thread it occurs in, as well as any details of the issue.

E.g. "Dice roller "X" in forum Y thread Z shows an error when I try to roll "d20,d8"."
E.g. "Results table in forum A topic B post C chopping off text."
E.g. "Left-hand side of the site not showing the "Games List"."

This would let me track down the issue to the exact place it occurs in, and see what's going on.

Dice roller seems to be fine now <g>

But the 'click' on 'who's online' still gives me an ... unusual screen. I think that is the last item on my list <g>

I have been experiencing server connection errors a lot the last few weeks. To the point that I end up having to reboot. Not affecting any of my other programs except perhaps for Google Earth. Could it be a Google issue?

We haven't had reports of any one else having server connection errors - unless you know differently? grin Maybe the issue is at your end Ken?

Ken, if the problem is resolved by a reboot of your machine, it's very likely that the problem is somehow at your end, rather than here.

I'll get in touch via PM to see what we can do to help.
