Anyone else unable to post at CodingForum?
« on: 11 Jul 2021, 09:21:34 am »
I've got a thread over there where JudgeDredd is asking for my help on code I've provided, and I seem to be unable to post anything over there. It ACTS like my posts are going through, but they never show up in the threads.
I'll fix every flaw, I'll break every law, I'll tear up the rulebook if that's what it takes. You will see, I will crush this cold machine.

@Jason Knight,
I’ve just posted ok, perhaps you’ve been banned :)

Are you, perhaps, confusing CodingForum with Sitepoint::)

Nope

It must be the work of one of the many gremlins
that seem to beset CodingForum then.  :(

Yeah, it's not behaving like a ban, it's behaving like... well... it's acting like the post is behaving normally, they just don't show up! I think they're running vBull, and that usually does a good job of telling you things like being banned.

But then with the legacy code they're probably dealing with, who knows. The less-than-reputable previous owners pulled a lot of stupid shit in their attempts to "monetize" things; like when they added the mining bot, quadrupled down on the off-topic adverts that made the site unusable without an adblock, etc, etc. The current owners have done a decent job of gutting out all that junk, but who knows what nasties and gremlins are lurking in that codebase.

It's part of why when I made this site I only placed one adsense ad... and honestly I'm tempted to rip that out as not being worth the time or effort. Oh noes, I use up resources on my hosting that's absurd overkill for my needs that I was paying for anyways, not that.

But then SMF is so much less resource intensive than other forum software. Never was quite sure why.
