VANISHED!!!
« on: September 13, 2017, 08:13:25 PM »
I'm starting to think it's a personal thing.  Almost none of my posts stick around for more than a day or two.  Kinda discourages a person.

I think that's kind of odd...

How long a thread stays active is something I never gave a thought to up to now.
It isnít anything personal but more down to what others are interested in at the time.
Most threads in the Den that run on and on are usually derailed from the start so donít lose heart and carry on posting, we could use some new threads at the moment as things are quiet at the moment.

We really could use some activity around here. It's not you Rik, and not personal.

I can understand people not repsonding, I'm talking about the whole post/reply just vanishing.  I haven't done much, still not up to the old me just yet.  BUT, I've started topics and replied to threads, and it's starting to mess with my head, making me wonder if I actually did it or not.  Not good.

If I remember correctly the server had problems and some Den stuff got lost, I know it was down for some time.

I wondered why I couldn't get on some time back. I just figured it was Tapatalk.

Hey Rik I explained it to you last week. Yes we lost about 24 hrs of posts when the server crashed at the host. The host set up a new server and used our 24hr old backup copy to bring us back online. No way to get the lost posts back

You did do a number of posts right before the crash. Nobody is deliberately removing your posts. Some were lost the day of the server crash. It's just one of those random things in life... bout the same odds as winning the lottery except the prize sucks.  :{

Yes it took a bit of time for the host to get it all resolved. Was actually just a little over 2 days. With the addition of losing 24hrs of posts from the last day before the incident, in reality it was a total 3 days worth of downtime.  :)-1

Other then this incident its been a long time since we have had any down time from them. Only other instances is when they were hit with ddos attacks... but that happens with every server on the net worth hitting.

Darth, you keep this place golden, not complaining, just trying to make sure I'm not losing my mind.
 
Problem though:  I'm back to having none of the bling in my Post Reply window.  No fonts, no emojis, just nothing.  I'll go through the disabling of addons to see which is causing the problem.

The bling issue is definitely on your end Rik.

Your not losing your mind but do let me know if you find mine laying around... seemed to have misplaced it some time ago in a galaxy far far away  :u)

You can turn off AdBlock on a site-by-site basis. If you choose to do so for YouTube, you will see the intro video ads that you can skip after they run for a few seconds. That way AdBlock will still run on other sites. I have to do this on YouTube as well as Ancestry.com.

Glad to see you got it sorted Rik... no need for script blockers and pop up blockers here at the Den.

As Pete suggested you can turn off some of those addons by site. It's good to do because the net outside of the Den can be a dangerous place.  ;)

Hate ads? Yeah, same here. I haven't watched broadcast OR cable TV for several decades now. An ad for HBO on HBO is still an ad. Ads for public radio and public TV on PR or PTV - ARE STILL ADS! I only watch DVDs anymore, and I only watch them after loading them onto my Kaleidescape system, which will skip all the ads (previews) for different movies and go straight to the beginning of the movie.

Youtube changes things to prevent add-ons like AdBlock from working. It's always a battle between the gun makers and the armor makers. Each one makes an improvement and the other one has to counter.

So cheer up; the next iteration of AdBlock (or some new ad blocker) will eventually work on Youtube (until Youtube figures out how to defeat it). I will try the uninstall/reinstall. Only trouble is, it will break all the settings I have come up with so far.

I guess I've been using the right combo of things 'cause I haven't seen an ad on Youtube in ages.
