Trying to Post but it is hard..  
Okay so I'm still having a lot of trouble with LJ. I can post but it isn't easy. It is like the coding of LJ is missing. I see nothing but text and then a couple boxes for my post text but there are no buttons for formatting. I have figured out if I put the coding for a image you all can see it but that is about all.

I have managed to put a couple posts into LJ that were more complicated but somethings just won't work.

Responding to comments/posts is a little complicated too though not nearly as bad. I'm trying to hold off as much as possible because the Support team told me they were working on it and even had me run some Command Prompt trace which would tell them where the issue was but I've heard nothing back and LJ is still messed up.

It is more than frustrating. Thankfully, I was able to post a Happy Birthday notice earlier but I couldn't even do the username right. UGH! LJ FIX IT!

And to tag anything I have to post and then tag. It gets so frustrating.

I had a terrible time yesterday when posting the two entries in outlander_watch. I never ever use the visual editor, but for some reason, LJ kept defaulting to that. I had a dickens of a time trying to put in a clickable hidden link. Finally got it to work, but I have no idea how.

I think LJ is crumbling. That is what if feels like to me. Though I know the issues is likely one little file that has one little error.... it can throw off everything.

I've experienced similar issues on my sites but wow.

Well, I finally got the posters entry done, but it was a challenge. I don't think LJ likes outlander_watch for some reason.

LJ definitely isn't what it used to be. Their best people left to start dreamwidth and the ones who stayed at LJ don't seem to know much about maintaining the site.

If the posters entry isn't the way you wanted it, let me know and I'll make whatever changes you want.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on March 6th, 2015 10:56 pm (UTC)
Yeah but I don't even like Dreamwidth that much. I mean I do but not really. Still and LJ fan at heart but now they just need to get their act together.

And the post is good though I always downsize images because those coming up on your feed/friends page can be a lot. Or put big images behind a cut. Either way.

Still thank you very much for the help. What trouble are you having with posting? Is it like me and you aren't really seeing LJ right?

I have a Dreamwidth account as a backup in case LJ crashes really badly. Most of my flist have accounts for the same reason. I haven't been there for about a year and I never post anything.

As for the photos in the Outlander LJ, I didn't realize the poster photos were that large or I'd have either made them clickable thumbnails or put them under a cut. I just copied the links from your email and uploaded them to Photobucket. There were several problems when I was doing the community post and one of them was that I couldn't see the photos, only links. Tonight, however, I can see the actual photos.

Also, all my entries here keep defaulting to the visual editor and I don't like that. I much prefer using HTML code. I don't have this problem with my own LJ and it didn't use to default to the visual editor here so something must have changed.

Hmmm maybe that was a residual issue from what was going on with my LJ... like you just didn't have all the issues but you had that one. I don't know.

I don't usually make them really small but I do go with around 400 width unless the height is really huge. I just don't want them to overwhelm people on their Friends pages. I've heard far too many people complain about things like that.

But I figured you didn't mean for them to be that big. So it is totally okay and I appreciate you putting them up for me in the first place. *hugs*

See and mine are defaulting to the HTML format and I like seeing my entries and then doing final edits in HTML if I feel it necessary. I'm guessing there is still a bug in the system.

gah, that sucks. I haven't had any problems so far *knock on wood* I hope they fix it soon, whatever it is *hugs*
Jill aka Josireesanwar on March 5th, 2015 08:03 pm (UTC)
So I believe it is one little piece of coding in one file over all their thousands of servers. That would be an issue to find but there are ways to find the problem and it is taking them forever. I hope they up my paid time here because I can barely use LJ.

*cross my fingers* that would only be fair

I know right?! It's annoying. My paid account ran out the other day and I'm leaning towards not buying or supporting them until they add some more benefits or give us more paid time like they used to for their problems with the site. :(
Jill aka Josireesanwar on March 5th, 2015 08:04 pm (UTC)
Exactly! I mean I know it is highly likely that some coder when into fix something and then accidently erased something or added something by accident and it is throwing everything off but the issue is finding that one tiny little error.

I haven't had any problems at all, other than it being a little slower than usual.

I hope they figure it out soon so things can get back to normal!
Jill aka Josireesanwar on March 5th, 2015 08:06 pm (UTC)
Gosh I hope so too. I'm replying by email. You know how you get emails about comments. Well at the bottom there is a reply box that sends it into LJ. I'm using those! UGH!
tracyj23: Garfield - facepalmtracyj23 on March 6th, 2015 06:44 pm (UTC)
Wow, that's scary. I wonder if other people are having the same problem? I don't know of anyone else who is, but maybe you're on a different server than them. I don't know if I know anyone else from the California area. Most of my friends are from the eastern US or Europe.

Ugh is right! Don't worry about answering and posting etc until it gets fixed. Too much frustration!
Jill aka Josireesanwar on March 6th, 2015 11:07 pm (UTC)
I was "checking the support pages" or at least trying too but I did see that several people are having this issue and they are being told it is them. I did finally get through to someone who said they are working on the issue. So let's hope it works.

Commenting via the emails isn't too bad except I have to confirm my comment three times and then wait for the page to "load" and then close it to move onto the next comment.

That's just so odd... I've been reading up on LJ these couple of days, and I have had no issues at all. o.O I guess it depends on what server you're on. :-P
Jill aka Josireesanwar on March 5th, 2015 08:10 pm (UTC)
It does. You are so lucky you aren't having the issues I am. I've snipped some pics of it that I will share when I'm able. It is so awful.

Strange that. Well, I hope you can manage to post pictures of it. Should be interesting.
Jill aka Josireesanwar on March 6th, 2015 11:14 pm (UTC)
Oh it is... and the odd thing is that it isn't like LJ isn't working but more like because of the error it just prevents me from gaining access to things.

*delurks from the woodworks*

I did notice a slight hick-up, as I was loading the Friends Page just now.. not so pretty layout, and then back to normal.. Hmm >_>

I guess LJ got too big, yeah :/
Jill aka Jo: OUAT: Snow in dinersireesanwar on March 9th, 2015 10:47 pm (UTC)
Yeah it is having hiccups now but there was far more wrong with it the last two weeks for me. I tried to post about it this morning but LJ lost my post. Oops. It posted the one about the errors but not my personal update. Geez.
