If the site claims to be down, and you’re pretty sure it’s not, look to see if the URL ends in / and take the / off. That fixes a lot of stuff with the forum, at least. I’m not sure why the trailing slash is a problem again, since it was fixed yesterday…

I think that what may have happened is that some Moderator or admin was in the process of sticking something to the forum wall just as the site went down, and the jolt made the pot of glue tip over, so some things got stuck in the cache.

 

Has anyone got any indsutrial strength glue remover   please.  wink

The club doesn’t help?


Another oddity is that when I get to the forums, I have to Log Out in order to be able to Log In.

I think they decided to try a twist on the Microsoft thing where you have to go to Start in order to Turn Off.rolleyes

Yes, some very screwy things going on, but it’s not DAZ, it’s me, I’ve cast a spell over the forum!


Actually, I’ve been having the same issues, sometimes I have to click on a post link from the index rather than a forum link, otherwise the site is down.  Right now even, the Bryce forum is down for me even though it isn’t.


I also discovered something quite horrific yesterday.  I got logged off, and after logging on again and then later needing to log off, the title Log Off had changed to a Not Me type button which is a practice so dumb it defies comprehension.  The only other website I know of that replaces the Log Off button with a Not Me button, is Amazon, an otherwise excellent website.


At the moment it has returned to normal again and I hope it stays that way, otherwise you are forcing confusion on your members (especially new ones) and creating a security risc.  Ask yourselves why someone called Jack would expect to click on a button called I’m Not Jack in order to log off?  It makes no sense because he is Jack, he just wants to log off and can’t because some person, for some reason yet unknown to medical science, decided that clicking a button called I’m not Jack is a much better and more obvious way to get Jack to log off than having a Log Off button.


In the end, Jack gives up and remains logged on because he can’t find the Log Off button.  He leaves the Internet Cafe and a dozen breast morphs get ordered on his account by the next person who uses the computer.


Later on he asks DAZ why there’s a bunch of breast stuff on his account, and DAZ recommends that he logs off next time.  Poor Jack of course, did everything in his power to log off, but couldn’t find the Log Off button.  He saw the I’m not Jack button, but because he IS Jack, he had no desire to click on it, just like I never the first time I started using Amazon.  I ended up reading through the Help section just to find out how I was supposed to Log Off.  Logging off took around 20 minutes, not just a second like on any normal website.


It’s an idiotically dumb and pointless thing to do, so I hope it stays the way it is.  And while I’m in complaint mode, for some reason, those nice big helpful navigation buttons that were good about the front page, have also disappeared for seemingly no reason at all.  The front page has therefore gone from functional to bad in one fatal and pointless move.

Maybe it’s those that have fallen off and clogged up the works cool smirk

I want to say something, I really do, but as I began to type…I think the site growled at me.


Or maybe it was Pam.grin

No Pam is too well bred to growl, one does not growl at Daz Forum Users, one simply ignores the ones that one does not wish to respond to.  mad
