Hey everyone, 

 

This topic is a place where we will keep the community updated about the status of any issues or bugs affecting the community platform that we are aware of and have reported. We will keep an up to date tracker of what the issue is, when it was first reported, the current status and the latest update. This will enable you to easily check if something you've noticed has already been flagged. 

 

How do I report a new issue or bug I've encountered on the community? 

We would like you to use this topic to report any new bugs or issues that you come across so we can add them to the tracker. To do this simply report the issue in the comments and tag in the community team so we can update the top post with any new issues. Please include as much detail as possible when reporting a new issue and where possible include the following: 

 

  • The Date and time you first noticed the issue 
  • A detailed description of what the issue is and how it's affecting your user experience 
  • If applicable include the URL of where you encountered the issue 
  • The web browser and operating system you are using 
  • If applicable a screenshot of the issue 

The above information will help us and the support team properly identify the issue and get working on a fix. 

 

How do I check the status of an issue that has been reported? 

At the bottom of this post you will see a list of all the active and recently resolved issues. The current status of the issue, along with the most recent update with be shown there. If you have a new question or more information about an open issue please post it in the comments of this topic. 


You can also use this topic to make requests or suggestions for new features or changes to how the community platform works! Please bear in mind that making changes can often take time and some requests won't be possible for various reasons but that said we would really appreciate your insights on how to improve the community interface and will aim to implement changes where possible. We will track any suggestions below the issues. 

 

Thanks for your patience while we work the outstanding issues and for your help reporting and testing.

Thanks for this tracker @Martin-O2, however one has been omitted.

*The post flooding error message when attempting to post emoji's whilst on PC. Not affecting posts made on mobile.

Re the security box missing? Firefox is my default browser but I have tried on Chrome and Edge and it's still missing. Windows PC.

Aren't the post flooding and the emoji post issue the same? Or does the post flooding error come up even if no emojis are in the post?

No they are different @gmarkj. I have had post flooding when taking part in Word Hunt Diamond. No emoji's involved. (when it happens, I change from capitals to lower case with the same word, then it will post!)

Ah, fair enough @Cleoriff wasn't sure. Strange that the same error comes up with different causes...

One thing to note, in the WHD, the Post Flooding error there usually means someone has just given the same word as the one you are trying to post - put in a different word (or lowercase the same one, as @Cleoriff says) and the post is allowed.

That is probably the only legitimate time you will see a Post Flooding warning, and it is genuine.

The whole thing about post flooding when smileys or emojis are concerned on PC really is an issue with how the forum is saving the post, probably as it tries to figure out if there is a forum emoji or a mobile one or a copy-paste one. 

Just my 0.2¢-worth.

@gmarkj 

In fact I would say post flooding on certain pages occurs far less often than the emoji issue

I think someone indicated with PC's it was linked to Windows? I use my Windows PC on the forum all the time.

I haven't been able to post a forum emoji for a month.

Also If I capture someone's post as a reply and they have used an emoji in their post, I have to remove it, otherwise I get the post flooding message when I try to post.

Hi @Cleoriff@pgn@gmarkj@Mi-Amigo@Bambino@TallTrees We've pushed an update live that should resolve the post flooding message issue. Can you give it a test and let me know if the error occurs again. Thanks!
