    Hey, I noticed just today that while I appear to be logged in to Disqus on the Disqus site, for some reason Disqus mysteriously logs me out and it never registers me as logged in on Patheos. I've tried to log in on two different browsers on two computers, plus one on my phone, so I know the problem isn't on my end. And Disqus won't even let me contact them in the comments. Can any of you contact Disqus for me to see what the problem is? Please? Because otherwise it's like I've been banned, only Cas didn't do the banning. Disqus effectively did.

    Disqus has taken a dump again for me as well.

    I've been noticing too that if I click "reply" there's a fifty-fifty chance I'll be dumped, whizzed to the top of the page, or to the bottom. Until now, I thought it was my and my bad aim. Sometimes it's just a relief to know the other guy actually DID screw up.

    [​IMG]I see the image in email but not here. except, er, here. Maybe they want to be sure we're paying attention...
     
  7. Right now on Disqus, whenever I scroll, highlight something, or click to expand a thread, the screen refreshes multiple times, jaggedly, and it's disconcerting.

    Anybody else seeing that?

    Using Chrome with Adblock Plus and Ghostery.

    Edit: It isn't happening on other sites.

    I haven't been here for a while, but I came to find out what's up with that.

    Damn they'll do anything to get your attention, won't they, AG.

    you don't suppose there were just too many comments and we blew the place out of the water? Us? Nahhh. Or else someone used a Bad Word
    and got caught.

    Clancy I'm never sarcastic.

    When we get too many comments, Disqus becomes unreliable, usually by omitting many comments on a refresh. As the RtD comment numbers rose, we started having trouble because the Saturday posts were accumulating 900-1100 comments. That's why Cas started the LSP posts.
    The locking or pre-moderating of the combox seems to be unrelated to the number of comments. It can easily be undone by a moderator, but we have to realize it's happened.

    Disqus is a bloody dumpster fire.
