Why can't I make threads on the forums???

24 replies

So I can't make a new thread so just picked this one to edit in my issue that has been going on for a while now. Evertime I go to make a thead after I spend time making it trying to help start conversation on a almost dead forum I get this bleepin message!

 

"You have already successfully submitted your post, please wait to submit again."

 

WTF How do you expect to have a forum if people can't make new threads? And I ask that knowing damn well I won't get an answer but FIX YOUR SHIITE FORUM! Then the moderators lock threads for necro bumping... Well if people can't make new threads what the f else are they supposed to do? Oh and I cleared my cookies and signed out and back in all that stuff so not the issue.

 

Thank you and have a nice day!

    Issue reported last week.  Don't think my PM to the point person has been read, though.  Sadly, the forums remain a mess.

    Now working like crap again... not only is it not working right yet it is causing many many copies of the same post which could cause crappy amounts of spam and thread recounts... :(

    Most likely the same problem as it was before, server issues.

     

    I was noticing the issue last night. When I hit reply, I waited (under a minute) to see if it would post and it eventually did. Didn't count exactly how long it took but it was definitely under a minute, maybe under twenty seconds.

     

    I'll check to see if anyone has mentioned it yet. Even then it could be until Tuesday before it's seen.

    It's been happening at least once a session, for me. 

     

    If I'm replying to a post and the Reply button doesn't seem to do anything, I copy the entire post, hit refresh, paste the text, and try again, repeating the process until the post registers.  :|  Of course, sometimes there's still a hiccup, like the time one recent reply I made ended up turning into three posts.

    Same here... I had a ton of posts from trying to click the button to many times becasue it looked like it was frozen, and I have had quite a few threads I had to copy and paste to get to work... (Key logger comes in handy to when the hick-up happens that causes a refresh on an edit and you loose all of your added post writting... )

     

    Plus this post didn't post... maybe its a time issue with how soon before you posting in another thread?

  • @Akira_994  Was running into the same issue again myself with the reply button working on and off. Same with the like button (which seems to be working again), along with the flag button. Sometimes it'll post the flag, sometimes it doesn't and I have to refresh the page.

    I had the 'unresponsive' Reply button once this session.  After two refreshes, my post was there... with a duplicate second post.  :(

    (Edit: Okay, twice.  The second time being this post.  At least it did appear after I hit refresh, though.)

     

    I've only seen the flag feature not respond once, I think.

    @STAB - Seems to be an issue with some browsers. It is something the Web/Forums team is investigating but it seems to be a tricky issue.

     

    By chance are you using Chrome? I think Chrome is one of the ones that does this. However, there does seem to be a workaround:

    • Prior to clicking [START A NEW CONVERSATION], open up the debug/developer console (Chrome is CTRL + SHIFT + I)
    • Under the NETWORK tab, check "Disable Cache", leave the console open.
    • Refresh the page, then click [START A NEW CONVERSATION] to start your post.
    • Then submit the post (again, the console should still be open), with any luck the post should be created.

  • Yes I am using Chrome on a Windows 7 PC. I could try a different browser or even use my phone or tablet but it's ridiculous that people can't make threads as they lock threads for necro bumping... What does that leave us with the few who can post but obviously don't and the ones that want to can't?

     

    Way to kill a forum on the edge of already being dead Sony lol.

     

    Thank's for the reply Dead-Sync but I don't want a work around it's not worth the effort if Sony doesn't think it's worth the effort to make this place at least function.

     

    I am trying to stick around but im close to being done with this mess. I spent 20 minutes making a thread about the new No Mans Sky update and all for nothing and it's not the first time. I have better thing's to do with my time.

    I hear ya, I understand it is frustrating, and it's no secret that many agree that the forums are in rough shape and have been for a while.

     

    Like I said, the web team is aware of this particular issue, so at least there is that, and I know some of the SMVPs have been working to try to isolate what has been causing it and provided a workaroud (I want to say it was thanks to GraphiteGB for the workaround find - but if it was one of the other SMVPs my apologies!) I guess that's all we can do until a fix is found I suppose.

    @BMW

     

    I have spoke to some of the PS Support staff regarding the 'Delete' action next to the 'Edit' button. This is actually a temporary biproduct of some other backend work. It may not necessarily stick around as a "feature" per say.

  • @Dead-Sync I'm not really crazy about in anyways. It's placed in a bad location, I almost deleted a post by accident.

  • So 3 weeks latter still can't make threads! I guess they're really hard at work... on coffee break! It's been month's since I could make threads.

     

    Why do they even have a forum feedback section if they don't read it? I appreciate the posts from my fellow forum users for sure but the morons behind the scenes should say something. YOU SUCK AT YOUR JOB!!! Better stay at Sony because this half assedddd work you do would be termination at a real company.

     

    And im just ranting because I know the real deal is Sony just doesn't have anybody working on this dump so I am ranting to nobody lol. I'm done trying though because I have to make a thread before I push post to find out I can't so im through wasting my time unless I hear otherwise.

    I tried a few times this week to make a thread about the Seasons greatings Blog post... It would not let me make a thread... I am not sure if it was because of the link to the blog post or if it was the title of my Thread or just because of the over run of Spam, yet I had issues makeing new threads this week more then once...
