New 'new bug'....

By hippiekarl ·
Tags: Off Topic
When I click on a blog (this has happened twice since yesterday, the latest--just now--was to Deb Littlejohn-Schinder's "How MS could take over..."), I'm directed to a page with the article and no comments. Clicking the 'comments' button, or the adjacent one (a 'balloon' enclosing the current number of comments), I'm sent down the page comments. I'm able to reach them only by clicking the link from the 'all articles/blogs' list elsewhere. Doing that gets to the discussion without the article.

Anyone else notice this yet?

I almost said "yes", but the comments finally loaded.

AFAICT, they are always tinkering with the site, so it could be that. I suppose it is possible that TR may experience more connections than the servers or bandwidth can handle occasionally, since they have attracted many more new users after the site redesign, &c (according to the PTB).

edit: Oh, yes, that particular article is definitely broken. I was just seeing lag in some other cases.

It may be blog specific

then scroll to the title, clicking on that brings up the blog without comments, I waited a while per Sean but no comments.

And Debs

same symptom, been looking around and the other blogs so far seem to work proper, way to many to check them all, but it does appear that something is amiss.

That one is definitely broken, too.

I should have amended my post title. I was seeing some other blogs that appeared to have the same problem, but then the comments would suddenly appear after a while. [edit: Which is the second link you posted. v/ ]

I searched for the particular article mentioned, and the behavior was just as described by hippiekarl.
