  • Thanks for the update, was worried I was the only one. It's scary when you work on a large submission and then that dreaded 500 error appears.

  • Would this be causing a user to have trouble uploading an image as his profile icon? I am having trouble with said task and just want to make sure that this is part of the 500 error, because I just joined TV.com and would not like to be a faceless user. :( Thanks!

  • Is there at least a way to tell if the submission went through? I hate to dump duplicate submissions on editors, but it seems 50/50 whether the sub goes through or not when the error comes up. I'd check my submission history, but the bug that made that disappear, at least for high-level users, is celebrating, what? its six-month anniversary... :(

  • @TheMidnightMurk Yes, it is possibly related. Please shoot me a PM if you continue to have issues with this. Thanks!

  • @Gislef If you refresh the 500 error page - whatever page appears will tell you if your submission went through. If it refreshes to the submission form, your submission did not go through.

  • Thanks for the info! Although sometimes it refreshes to another 500 page...

  • @Gislef Refresh again

  • Oh I really hope this error page glitch gets fixed soon - it really is maddening. Happens to me every other time.

  • "Refresh again" Yep, I considered that. Unfortunately, no guarantee that just wouldn't send the same submission again. And again. And again. :( That's why I wanted to check first, rather than do that to some editor.

    TesserT: I've had it happen irregularly. Sometimes it won't come up for 20+ submissions, sometimes it'll happen 3-4 times in a row. No rhyme or reason to it, apparently.

  • @TesserT A fix for this is coming soon - I will keep you all updated. Thanks.

  • @Gislef If you refresh the page your submission isn't going to be resent so no worries there.

  • If it hasn't been fixed, it sure seems like it is: I haven't seen a 500 page come up all day today. Thanks!

  • Did a bunch of news column threads get destroyed last night? There was a brief period where Forum Favorites weren't showing up. Now it looks like the news/review column threads are gone, even though my Notifications list says that the ones I posted on are there.

  • @Gislef If this is still an issue for you, please send me a PM. Thanks.
