Posting bug appeared with the update, and disappeared again Answered

Did anyone else notice the loss of "posting" for the last 8 hours ? It seems to have come back again at last, but what happened to testing ?

The bug has been fixed by unupdating the last update.

Perhaps there should be a completely different forum technology for posting bugs, so that when there is one, it doesn't take down the bug reporting forum.....

[cough] beta test ?

There is always EMAIL (which is how I reported it).

Exactly, plus a site-wide bug out of hours will be spotted by the Community Team first, and they can alert HQ as well.

Stuff does get tested before updates, but only by tens of people at a time. I do my best to break stuff, but there's no real way to replicate or simulate the effect of thousands of users at once.

I was invited, but didn't have time. Life's been a bit busy lately (family funeral and all that entails).

I was completely unable to post, reply, or anything, using FF or Chrome. I wish I'd seen this before posting my own thread on it....

Same here... last night after the site came back online, nothing was really working. The Q & A section "answer" links wouldn't open up the editor to post answers... I emailed the info as I haven't had much success in bug reports getting looked at.

Yep, i sent an email about it to there service email. It wasn't the only problem with the site either. The avatars where not showing the color band at the bottom with our Instructables count. On your profile page the Stuff you like wasn't showing up and the stats page would load your stats. Often when i was look at instructables or at various forum topics the status bar in the upper right corner acted like i wasn't logged in. But was fine when i went back to the home screen. So there where several problems.
