    I am not sure why that refresh thing happens then doesn't happen - but I our dev ops has been notified - I would only be speculating as to why it would be happening as I'm not a techie. Hopefully they can give us some insight on what is it is and get the fix in.
     
  2. Here I am again with a very silly though annoying problem. Every time I remove an image the machine prompt with the message image removed . The next morning it is back. I have tried 10 times ( to be sure)And it comes back like a dog that is following his master. Anyone out there having a decent idea????
     
  3. Again back after a couple of month. Unfortunately it is still a mess on this site. I tried to upload an image and created a new gallery. I would like to change the photo title but that seems not possible anymore. Furthermore I put the photo and galery on Private. After logging in again I couldn't find back the gallery neither the photo. The site is still very slow. When is this site upgraded again to the professional site it was once?
     
  4. I've had a few issues uploading photos to forums the last week or so with red box warning (photo too large, etc). I think this happens when several people are trying at the same time. Deleted photos seem to stay deleted now.
     
  5. maybe the site is a single user version . lol. It sounds all very unprofessional.

    I have had the same issue several times, but in every case, a few tries got everything to work. My guess is that several people are doing the same thing at the same time. In the scheme of things, a relatively minor inconvenience.
     
  7. Glenn speculated in another thread, I can't find exactly which thread, that it may have something to do with their tinkling around with the spam filters. I've had that error message quite a bit in the last couple of weeks as well. I usually have success by quitting my browser and relaunching it.
     
  8. I have the same problem, unable to permanently delete an image - it keeps reappearing
     
  9. (Sarcastic Font) "When uploading pictures, remember, this is the Hotel California of web sites"

    It MUST be painfully obvious at this point that the people who run photo.net either do not know what they are doing or flat out do not care. Our reporting so-called bugs and then waiting months for inaction nothing short of redefining...well, you get the idea.

    Hope my honesty does not get me banned - it has happend to some who tell truth to power! Although what would I really be missing?

    Im loving PhotoNet is adding new features when the old ones havent been ironed out yet.

    This was once a wonderful place to share information and network with great photographers.So easy to use, no frills no nonsense.

    Funny, I wanted to see what the CONTEST section was about since it opened magically as I tried to get into or out of my photos which I still have no idea how anyone can see them because I cant see theirs. Anyway, the contest area was so clunky loading and jerky shifting a large photo up n down the screen with no menues or a clue what I was getting into. How do I enter the contest? where are the contestants for today?... or is it a weekly or monthly contest? then god forbid I might find a section to vote on contestants. I managed to get out of it and after some clunking around I got to find the forums to post this... now Im just looking to get out as fast as I can. its very frustrating in here.

    BTW why cant we see peoples stats under their avatars? Its always nice to see where people are from when posting.

    Paaaaaaaalllllllleeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzz make photonet great again?

  11. Site navigation--AAARGH! I decided I'd try this place again after leaving in despair a few months ago. Surely, I thought, some of the bug have been killed.

    Well, no. My biggest frustration: Once I'm in one of my own galleries, I can't back out (to go to another gallery, for example) without repeatedly using the "Back" button on the browser. The handy navigation window on the left edge of the screen is gone once one is inside a gallery. That was a frustration six months ago, and it still is.

    Anybody home? Glenn, I see you're posting occasionally, but is anyone fixing anything?
     
  12. Try "right-click, open in a new window".
     
  13. My previous 24 hours before having to re-login seem to have dropped to 12 hours over the past few days.

    In addition, it seems like half the time these days I get an error when I try to post. The errors are all over the place-sometimes telling me I've exceeded my limit for the day, sometimes telling me I have to wait an arbitrary amount of time before making another post, and sometimes just a simple generic server error.

    As I've said before, Xenforo is one of the most popular suites for forum software these days, and I don't have these kind of issues on other sites. The knowledge for how to make this site run smoothly is out there.

    seems there are issues with the time keeping on PN. the 15 min edit limit expires in 7 min real time. if you refresh the screen, you will see after posting, the times erratically change with every new screen.

    at first i thought 15 mins was too short till i did a few tests and timed it with a stopwatch.
     
  15. Explore / Browse By Categories will not scroll. Same result in Safari & Firefox on MacOS 10.13.2
     
  16. The site appears to be working on desktop, but in mobile Chrome on Android, as of the last day or so, I'm seeing a continuous "in progress" bar, and I don't appear to be able to log in (I attempted to log out to see whether it would clear anything). I've attempted to clear cookies for everything photo.net related (if I need to clear anything else - by which I'm afraid I don't mean "everything else on all other sites I use because we can't be bothered to tell users which specific cookies to clear" - please say). Running the browser in "request desktop site" mode doesn't seem to fix it.

    Has there been a recent configuration change which could be causing a problem?
     
  17. Does that in Safari but not Firefox for me! Started just lately, maybe today.

  18. I’m also getting the same “in progress” bar continuously on my iPad.
     
  19. It would, for what it's worth, be lovely to have a "site status" (at least in a link) on the home page, so we can easily tell whether something is known to be playing up and whether people are actively involved in a maintenance problem. It doesn't have to be obtrusive, but trying to find somewhere to report this kind of thing (if we can - like the posting problem a few days ago) is tricky and it's hard to tell whether it's redundant.
     
  20. Hmm. Progress. The "in progress" bar seems to have gone away, but I'm still having trouble that the login (green) button doesn't do anything on mobile, so it looks like I might be logged out for the evening unless I use a laptop.
