Anybody else?

I face the same issue when I want to access my drafts. After logging out and then back in, the problem gets solved but temporarily.

It's getting (getting?) annoying, having to clear my cache & cookies every time I visit the site.

Yep, it was happening to me too! Many buttons on my user page just kicked me back to the homepage. The right people are aware though, and looking into it.
For me logging out and back in resolves it, but it does seem to return after a few hours again.

It's the same for me on all devices.

I saw the site was down for a while yesterday, I thought that was folk fixing stuff, but I'm now unable to get to my draft projects!

Any idea when it's going to be fixed?

Not sure if it is really related but:
I noticed that quite often these background things that appear in the bottom bar of Firefox when loading a website take like forever to complete.
At least for me it then means in those cases that I am facing problems.
The redirector for some (or all) buttons seems to play up as well.
Almost as if the script behind it is pointing to the wrong area code to execute.
Like we had a while ago when clicking buttons did nothing at all.

I do not have a timeframe, but it is on the radar for the site's engineers.

Well, it is always nice to know the code monkeys are aware of some problems and trying to fix it.
Thanks for the update!
And please give a bunch of bananas to the code monkey(s) - they deserve a treat! ;)

Please poke them - this is a major useability issue for the people creating your content.

Nice if it is indeed fixed for you, but here the problem is persisting.
Following a comment link rom my Emails gets me nowhere and the comment tracker is still empty.
But at least your topics seem to make it here while mine last few ones all seem to be published in the digital nirvana.

Maybe we should start to donation buttons everyhwere!?
If everyone visiting the site donates 5 cents we might get enough money to employ a second coder for maintenance and bug fixing....

"Your topic was successfully created! Redirecting to edit page..."
Well, I would prefer it to be published instead of saved for starters.
And if it was in fact created and published then of course it would be too convinient to actually see it appearing somewhere else and not just in my overgrowing list of drafts...
Really starting to wonder why I still bother here and assume we will ever get things working properly.

Well, I got an Email informing me about comments on my Ible.
No comments visible in the Ible...
Followed the comment tracker from the Email and from my profile but still the comment I see in my Emails is not there at all.
Logging in and out did not help either.

Does anyone do any testing and checking before new things are implemented or are we now down to just user reports and hoping things get better? ;)
I mean, it is not like anyone would actually bother to read or answer comments, or is it?
No offense but usability of this site seems to still go downhill instead of back uphill :(
