Word rounds give me a response of (Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage) and then no results (incomplete results)

This has to do with the network updates that were taking place today. You'll all hopefully be happy with the site speed-up that is expected. Unfortunately, as a side effect, the implementation team reports that "any changes made to the website between approximately 8pm EST and 9:55 EST were most likely lost".

We apologize for that small burp, but with luck, the rewards will make it all worth it.

Weird; I reentered my WP score (and did worse this time)

I did get the same showdown question, but you don't have to worry. Originally when I took the showdown I got it right but slower than my opponent so I lost. When I clicked on it again, it was still time warping, and it gave me the same question but said I exceeded the time limit when I did not. Now, it is gone for whatever reason, but I'm happy because I truly lost that one.

What I'm dissapointed about, is that I got 6 or 7 out of nine right on the tqotd, and when I re-tried them they were all the same questions but all but three said I exceeded the time limit when I did not. Guess I'll put in a support ticket when I get around to it, as I lost several legitimate correctly answered questions on those.

I did not have my results for my last WP and no TQOTD this morning. Is it worth submitting a ticket? Probably not, the support team is going to be overwhelm with requests. Cheers

I repeat. Was any warning published anywhere that these problems were likely to occur ?

It's always worth submitting Support Tickets. We right all the wrongs we can.

If the editorial team had known about the upgrade in advance, or the effect it was going to have, we would have posted warnings. We are in exactly the same position you are.

Yesterday Sploofernatural posted in Hotwire under the Site Work thread about some maintenance taking place.

I didn't get my TQOD this morning yet- very strange.

It occurs to me that a warning of possible consequences of maintenance work should have been posted here. It wouldn't have hurt, it wouldn't have cost anything, and we would all have been on our guard.

Good luck to those of you doing Word Puzzles the rest of
the month. I'm done with October. Catch you in November.

Let's see: Hotwire: Official News, Announcements and Updates. People who care about such things probably check it.

Lots of people care and do check it. But it needs to be in a new post. If you add it to the back of an old notice, people aren't going to read it. Thanks to whoever posted a new thread on it in hotwire later this morning.

Lodi - wasn't you who before suggested any notices be posted in each room so everybody would see it?

I know that's not been protocol, but we're all creatures of habit. When we go to hotwire and nothing is posted for awhile, we stop checking and then get bit in the backside.

Surely (and don't call you shirley) it wouldn't take an inordinate amount of time to post a notice in each room?

I fail to see the difference between it being on a new thread or an old one. They'll show the same way. This particular forum system does not have a listing of "Newest Topics", as some I know do. Either way, you need to go to the overall Forums page and see a topic dealing with work on the site among the most recent posts, or go to Hotwire and look at the most recent threads and see that one's been updated since you last read there. What difference does it make if the thread is new or old?

Jank, then why even have a Hotwire? Do we need that sort of extra clutter of posting the same thing 7 times? I think the clinical term for such is "spam".

I think we do when they're going to do something that doesn't merely reset but changes everything and causes 12 hours of glitches and lost work. We don't need it for those short resets that just take sploofus offline for 5 minutes or so.

This one was the most disruptive change I've experienced in probably a year.

Why are you getting so sensitive about it, Ken? Nobody is taking away your birthday. Just asking that new and major things be posted in a new thread, not tacked on to an old one that says sploofus outage in August. Because if the thread says August, I tend to think it something that happened in August. Not sure why. I'm just not smart, I guess.

Actually, my idea was a mass pm to sploofus central, which Justin seemed to like, as well as a notice in all threads. But just for the major things. Minor tweaks wouldn't need that. That would, indeed, be overkill.

Thanks to you both for responding ad hominem rather than with any argument that supports your position. I'm sure that will convince a lot of people.

Who are we trying to convince? And why does it matter? Its just an opinion. I don't understand why you take a freaking notice in the threads so personally. Very strange.

A mass PM idea is a good one- I don't think I've ever seen it done here. Is it even possible?

The only reason I saw the post about the maintenance was because it showed up on the "front page" on the right side when I happened to sign on and see it. Otherwise I wouldn't have seen it after it sunk off and disappeared into neverland.

Personally? I just expressed my opinion and explained why. Why do you distort what I wrote?

Sigh. Because its what I do Ken. I wig out over posting notices to the sploofus general public in hopes of pissing you off. Good lord.

Are you ok? People are literally taking swings at each other over politics and you are losing your gourd over site maintenance notifications. Really?

Kim and Lodi - wonder if Justin could connect a mass email with TQOTD when he plans something massive, rather than a PM? After all, the site could be down and we wouldn't get the PM - but we might get an email?

Now obviously, this is just all theoretical. It's not like it's going to happen. I'm just wondering if it's a logical idea.

Losing my gourd? Hardly. And the number of times you say it doesn't make it any truer.
