You are here

can someone please explain to me what is going on with vegweb?

Has the site moved or something?  Does everyone visit through Facebook?  I'm not on Facebook so I wouldn't know . . . .

The other day I posted three or four questions in Dish n Dine and have not yet gotten one reply. Not one!  I think my feelings are hurt.

This just strikes me as so unusual.  Definitely not the vegweb of yesteryear. Can someone fill me in?

I know. What I wouldn't give for a good hunting debate right now . . .

I hope they comb all the Chinese spammers out of the pets and hobbies sections...

ha, there are actual spam posts that were copied over. I'm guessing when they did the data migration they happened to be on the forums XP

I signed up to be a beta tester, saw the new site, tried it out, and sent in my feedback.  Patience young grasshoppers ~^_^~.  I liked the new site a lot.  Pretty easy to use.

The spam is still here too... (at least in Animal House)
Maybe the people with the ability to delete it haven't been visiting much lately.

Also, the beta site seems to be down today. I wonder if they are re-migrating the data.

It seems like they've fixed a couple things - there is now a button to post a forum topic on the main forum page, and the formatting for the forums is mostly fixed (the lines don't run over, and it's organized by page rather than listing all topics on one). For those interested, though, it's not quite ready to go. There's still an issue with thread pages (each "page" leads you to the front), and some of the forums are missing now (maybe has to do with the data migration?). Otherwise mostly functional, with some missing features (reporting a post, for example).

Is the beta site responding for you? I haven't been able to access it since yesterday. I did notice though that the sorting order had been fixed. Also, with regard to the missing forums, it seemed to just be that the links were gone, while the data seemed unchanged if I visited via a direct URL (e.g. http://beta.vegweb.com/forums/kitchen-sink ).

It makes me wonder how many other features are actually implemented but have a missing or incomplete interface. Purely interface problems can potentially be fixed client-side (with user-scripts and/or user-styles), but some things really need to be supported on the server-side.

Yes, I've been able to access it. For whatever reason, I've had to re-enter the username/password twice to access it since first going there, though the browser has remained open.

I checked out the direct link too and saw it was there... I don't know if the links are missing because they're in the middle of fixing the second half of forums or what. But at least they aren't totally gone.

Oh, okay, I tried restarting my browser and now I can access it again. Come to think of it, my browser crashed at some point yesterday or this morning, so it probably had nothing at all to do with the beta site. Silly Firefox ::)

ETA: (Though needing to enter your password twice is also a bit weird, so maybe something about the site did change too.)

ah, it wasn't twice in a row, it was two incidents of having to re-login. I assumed they re-did something on the site that logged off all the users or something.

oh dang. now beta is loading all old-school for me. i guess they must be working on stuff? hopefully...

I snuck in and signed in but I don't see a "Submit Recipe" button anywhere. I suppose we'll just have to wait...some more...
Avoid me, I was a preemie.

If you go to a specific recipe, the button will show up on the right. It's weird that it's not on the main recipe page.

Yes, that is weird.

Yeah, it took me a while to find it too.  I mentioned that in my site feedback.

Moi aussi.

I would mention it somewhere only, as I say, I snuck in. I'm not really supposed to be there.
But of course...if you leave anything unattended for long enough, it grows shrooms...
