  • Forum downtime issues

    for the recent time, for weeks, this forum has A LOT of issues. Now it also goes down A LOT, sometimes for 5-10 minutes. I don't remember the archive forums having so much issues.

    I'd like to ask: NK Does something to fix these widespread issues? It doesn't seem so, because for WEEKS there are tons of downtimes.

    posting again, THIS is the time I couldn't get to this thread due downtime issues. Not to mention I got one right when I created this thread. It's getting out of hand.

      This has been going on since the beginning of December. 2 and half months ago. Come on NK. So many issues.

      1) JSON Syntax Error every single time I click Post Reply.

      2) Posts not showing up, which include mine. (I post, then it vanishes and I have to post again. Or sometimes, it takes lots of refreshes to get the post to appear)
      3) The auto-saving function not working since about 7 months.
      4) Edit function not working properly. (I click Save, but it doesn't save. Or at times, I click Save, and it just says "Working..." so I have to refresh the page to get it to save.)
      5) Random 404 errors (they seem to be happening today)
      6) 404 error while checking the notification page
      7) "Ninja Kiwi is under maintenance" error - they happen after posting a reply and changing page, but sometimes they just happen randomly, such as today.

      8) Avatar glitches while browsing forums. For example, below it says "by Gamzdude", yet it shows lla26's avatar.

      9) First row of member list not being lined properly.

      10) Mobile only - sometimes, I get the wrong threads to appear. For example, it could say the last post was "today" but the last post was yesterday instead.
      11) Dark skin not working. (black text gets turned into white, making it unreadable)
      12) Other mobile issues. (such as lla26 not being able to edit posts, space lines, or write certain symbols such as ^ or <)
      13) Deleting post error.

      14)

      15)

        Yeah, this crap has gotten out of hand it started in early December, then got a bit better, then worse, and now it's really, really, bad, I'm at the point where I'll likely quite NK as whole including the forums, and just start my own forum, it's utterly ridicules how NK has fallen to pretty much EA & Zynga level of bad, and all get an awful rating from me.

        NK if you care please fix these forums, like they were months ago.

          Hm.. I haven't had any problems on my end, albeit using it for very little. I don't see why this is such a huge issue. Just email support, they will read it and work on it as soon as they can. Ninja Kiwi is very busy, and its servers seem stressed by other projects. But honestly, you are blowing this way out of proportion.

            Yeah, this has been going on for over two months, and it's getting worse, sorry, but it's a big issue.

              You can't say that it's not a big problem if you use the forums very little. For us the people who use the forum a lot, seen the problems Superbloons mentioned for TWO and HALF months. It's a Major issue as these forums are broken as heck at times, a lot more than the archive forums were.

                I seem to be very lucky, because I seem to almost never get your nonsensical error messages except the 404 notifications page.

                "6) 404 error while checking the notification page"

                Ever since I disabled notifications for likes, I never got a 404 for the Notifications page.

                  Guess what? There was another 10 minute forum downtime.

                  NK has done nothing to fix these issues. In fact, I checked the "is it down right now" website and it says "Down for: more than a week", which is when the problems began again.



                  EDIT: There was another one, and it lasted 25 minutes.

                      if there was one lasting 25 minutes, then soon there will be ones that last hours. NK, PLEASE do something to fix these.

                      if possible, get back the archive forums... seriously they weren't that bad.

                        ^ Guess what I don't think NK will. In fact, no real response since this thread was created, NK has gotten so lazy, that they really don't care any more . I also doubt they would bring back the archive forums .

                        And keep in mind this nonsense started in late Nov.

                              I don't think that it's fair to jump to the conclusion that at NK "they don't care".

                              If that was true, they would not bother hosting and maintaining this forum.
                              Yes, you can argue that there has been hiccups on this site. But when NK fix it within an hour most of the time, it proves that they "do care".
                              I can understand your frustration, and your wish that this forum would never have any down-time.
                              But there is a lot going on that we are not able to see.

                              The best thing to do whenever the login acts up, is for you to try to report that problem to [email protected].

                              Thank you for your help.
