That is how it has been from the get-go. Editors can delete and post as players and editors but they cannot fix the broken things. Are there "trust" issues with the needed codes or what? makes for a whole lot of frustration

I don't think the editors are given the ability to tinker with servers so you can't blame them for this stuff.

Let me at the damn thing. At least I'll try.

Unless he's wasting away in Margaritaville. Looking for his lost shaker of salt.

Maybe he is away on holiday, spending all the extra cash he got in from his special offer. LOL Stranger things have happened at sea. Oh, sorry, that expression is in the wrong thread. LOL

Saw all the stuff over on Sploofus Refugees but entered fine at 9 a.m. UK time.
But obviously fings are a bit odd here & there within the site.
Any updates from anywhere yet?

I'm guessing it takes some tech know-how to fix server problems and it wouldn't be wise to open it up to just anyone. I don't know the set-up, usually a web I/T person behind the scenes with administrator like Justin; perhaps he wears both hats.

I got in just fine this morning as far as logging in goes and getting to chat.. Did my question of the day and the timer went all the way to zero before any answer was shown...I didn't get it right anyway...Then I wanted to see if I could check on my quizzes...I still cannot access them at all...It's 8:43 a.m. here...I'm afraid to try to take a quiz or to write one...I'll wait and see what happens I guess...Happy Trails everyone....

I've had problems logging in all night and this morning, and also the pages loading.

Also receiving this error message: CONNECTION ERROR=|db=sploofus|ip= on several things that won't load.

I'm afraid to do the Wordpuzzle yet as last night I completed the 8:00 p.m. one, and it said "Incomplete" so didn't bother trying to get it reset as the same thing could happen again.

Same here, this is pathetic. Just tried to do a WP only to be told that i've already taken it. This is the second time i've been told i've taken a WP that i haven't. Impossible to write any quizzes like this, what the hell is going on ?

Supposedly, (according to Facebook) Justin is basking in the sun in Florida.

Speaking of WP's, is it reasonable to request that the WP's that aired during this recent series of Sploofus Quakes be rescheduled once the server issues have been sorted out. It just seems a shame that an author put all that work into a WP and have a limited number of players due to server issues and Sploofus time outs. Just putting it out there...

ditto that did not even bother with a support ticket after gettinhg booted from Jim's hilarious one

Just an addendum to my previous post. I realize rescheduling WP's is no simple matter. I can't speak for other authors, but I would have no issues with my upcoming WP being punted to a later date so that this weeks authors could get their proper dues.

I am having a real problem with WP. My points aren't being recorded and it took me five minutes just to log on this morning. I sure hope Justin is working on it.
