I want to second this. I access the site through VPN at work though pia VPN or free VPN. If the VPN is on the site doesn't work but all others do and if the VPN is off then I get a too many redirects error. Will check at home later if pia works on my home PC.I have been having trouble accessing the site on my home internet connection (FiOS). Not an expert, but I suspect some sort of DNS issue; when I try to ping the site I get timeouts. I tried switching to a few different DNS servers (126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52, and the default Verizon one); on the default Verizon DNS I was able to get the site to load briefly and saw that the IP resolved to something different when pinging. I've disabled any adblocking and the "traffic protection" functions on my router.
The site works fine when loaded via cell network on my phone (which is how I am posting). Will check what it looks like on the office connection when I get to work.
Seconding this, it is 100 percent infuriating and has been like this for months, the subforum selection page is extra irritating
When you load a page the ad banner takes several seconds to load in, and when it does it pushes the entire page down. This has repeatedly caused me to tap a different thread title and other things due to it loading in right when I tap. It'd be nice if the size of the banner is coded in to the layout, so when the ad loads it doesn't move the page.
We've investigated solutions to this and unfortunately there isn't a perfect one. The best we could do is create a fixed container for it, and we did in fact test that solution on the old design, but the result was that it cut off the "Report Ad" link underneath the ads and members were no longer able to report bad ads directly. That obviously generated a lot of complaints as well, and in the end we decided to err on the side of allowing reports.
Lately i've been getting ads that are a good 3-4x taller than normal, which makes this even worse. Add on top of that ads that update to new dimensions constantly and it's just a nightmare, even on pc. The pages are constantly and seemingly randomly re-flowing and I frequently lose track of where I am in threads or click the wrong thing 3-4 times as I quite literally fight against loading ads. Makes this site so frustrating to use.
I'm getting the same thing. Not sure when it started, maybe late last week and as far as I know it only happens at work when I'm connected to a VPN.
I have been getting this a lot lately too but only on desktop but haven't seen it on mobile. I'm not on a VPN.
Laptop in my case, I don't really browse on mobile. Also not using a VPN.
That's horrible. I don't currently have anyone on ignore but I wouldn't want to hear from them at all if I did.
You definitely shouldn't be seeing those. Please report the PM so that we can investigate what's going on there.
I reported this ever since the redesign first launched!
Yeah there definitely is, though I don't know what the limit is. You can still click jump to new though and it'll take you to the proper post.
No need to worry; your account should remain valid no matter what happens to your old email. The only thing you'd lose is the ability to reset your password via email if you lock yourself out of your account. If you absolutely must change your email in the interim, drop me a PM and I'll see what I can do.will the site ever support non-paid for emails addresses? just asking because I'm gonna cancel my sub with my current email provider and i wanted to change my Era email to my gmail address at least until I sub to a different paid-for email service (didn't want to risk my account being in limbo while i make the transition).
Looks like a problem with the search index. The fix is straightforward, but it's also tedious and will result in search being disabled for most of a day. We'll try to get to it this weekend.
