Intermittent - fail to post: "unable to handle request"
« on: November 06, 2019, 03:19:14 PM »
Hi
   Intermittently I get an error when attempting to make a post. Error is:

"This page isn’t working
forum.arctic-sea-ice.net is currently unable to handle this request.
HTTP ERROR 500"

It doesn't seem to matter whether or not a file attachment is included in the post.  Same result on both Firefox and Chrome browsers. Most recent case has been on Consequences section. Out of 5 attempts to post, only one worked.
Hopefully this post works! Anybody else seeing this?

Nope. Works fine for me.

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Had this occasionally but not recently.
It is some trouble with the website which is usually fixed quite quickly

It might happen when the forum is under high load. At times we have really yuge numbers of connections...
This forum helps me to feel less uncomfortable about "doing something" about the melting Arctic and the warming world.

Just an FYI:  Occasionally over the past month or so, when I click Post (particularly when there are attachments), the load may finish with a blank screen (in Safari) with the message, “Cannot parse response.”  Sometimes my post has been posted, sometimes not.  Fortunately, I can use my browser back button, copy the text of the post, and try again using a new Reply, when needed.

In emoji news:  recently I’ve been able to post emoji that I could not post before!  Woot!  🤩🚀 💪

People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.

I just experienced this issue. The consequence seem to be that the topic I was attempting to post to is broken.

Currently the following doesn't appear on my screen:

https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,327.msg319082.html

It does appear if I "print" the thread though. Is there a DungeonMaster in the house?

Try removing the last post in that thread from your show posts list (copy it first)

I don't have a "remove" option on my most recent posts, but it's still there on an earlier one on a different thread.

I don't see the problem now. Has it been resolved for all?
If not, let me know which post exactly to remove.

This one is the probable source of the problem:

https://forum.arctic-sea-ice.net/index.php/topic,327.msg319079.html#msg319079

which was followed by this (also currently invisible to me) post:

Thanks, didn't notice the thread was not really reaching the end.
#319079 removed. The next one is now visible.

Thanks oren.

Things started working again on that thread, until I tried uploading an evidently troubling image again. With the following result.

However this time no post seems to have made it through to break things.
