Some doubt about "kind of" bugs in the forum-software.
O.K. let us see this. I have since yesterday problems to load the pages of the forum normally. From 22:00 GMT+1 time I was unable to log in at all. This morning it is better but as I write the page is in a "won't load state" that I well know. In these cases I have to wait the autosave function did it's job and then reload the whole thing and then recover the post. Not ideal.
Now that I did this, I am able to change paragraph, while it hasn't finish to load I can't. The only symptoms I encounter is that in the status bar there is a page loading indication. This is with Firefox 3.6.26
Another thing that is puzzling me is the usage of emoticons. There does not seem any comprehensible rule. One user states to be able to post as much as he wants over NNTP, another claims a limit of 4, other had (like me) 3, but recently I cannot put more than two.
There is then a repeatable bug with at least one of the emoticons. If you insert the following one:
then at least with me, if I do submit the post, all the text after this sign is gone. And the emoticon itself too. This is repeatable.
Probably all useless observations, I know one can live with that without problem, however, at least the page loading and login problem I would like to have somebody look after. I suffered that for a nearly a month or more, then it got better, but now I fear the direction inverted. Men@work or other problems going on I do not know.
Just "clicking away" security warnings about a change in repo signature ? Not able to control?
Then please vote for
openSUSE should have an efficient web of trust.
