My first experience with NodeBB

  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    So, I was pretty excited when I opened my forum tab and saw that the migration had happened.

    I couldn't log in, so I requested a reset email which promptly arrived.

    I clicked the link, and typed my new password, and got a swirly of death. Waited for a good 5 minutes and then tried again. Got the swirly of death again and another 5 minute wait.

    Tried again, and got "reset link invalid" or words to that effect.

    I gave up thinking that maybe it doesn't work on mobile...

    Anyway, an hour or so later, I tried again. After a couple of attempts I finally got in. Yay ish.

    Let's have a look around then... Wow, what's with all of the pop-up notifications? And why is it Jellypotato-ing every time I get a notification? I suppose I'd better tap one of these notifications and go to the chat and see what's going on...

    OK, I saw some messages, and then the screen went blank.


    All I can see is the chat title. undefined Let's try again. Same result. OK, this is clearly a bug. I finally get into the chat by going to the "chats" page and select the chat from there. It seems the notification links are useless.

    I go to browse the forum, and decide to upvote a post, and nothing. Hmmm the upvote hitbox is very small, did I miss it? I can't make it work.



    OK, it finally worked. Let's do some more browsing...




    Well shit...


  • Blame @Matches for that one I think. He apologises here

  • Guilty =x

    502 means the forum crashed

    Well shit...

    503 means the forum is throttling connections because of the (configurable) max requests per time period

    504 is the equivalent of any Discourse 5XX OK error.

Looks like your connection to What the Daily WTF? was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
