Activity Bar not Changing

I couldn't find a topic about this, so: Last night I noticed that the activity bar was not changing even when I commented in groups. This morning it is still not working. Thought I ought to let you guy know. ~Ian

Yup. Yet again, the activity bar has frozen. Maybe because there is not enough server space dedicated to the 'pages.

I could get on, just fine. Though over the past few days and weeks, it has, on occasion, not worked, so. Was it briefly down for you?

Yes, I thought that maybe it was down so that they could fix the activity bar, but I guess not.

Nope, unless if the activity bar is down so upgrades can be put on it.
For me, I am relying on my email, as well as a continuous scan of the 'pages, to stay updated.

Thanks for that ;-). I am sure, though, that the amazing crew behind the 'pages are working hard to fix it (cut to a scene showing the "big three" Admins of MOCpages sipping lemonade while relaxing on lawn chairs).

Well, I have another problem. Now the activity bar only says:

Query for failed SELECT activity.* FROM activity WHERE activity.to_personid=56218 ORDER BY activity.created DESC LIMIT 13

I'd assume it's the same for you guys, correct?

FOLKS! Read the previous posts! And yes, my activity bar is saying query failed, and whatnot. I have had trouble posting comments on creations and groups. It posts the comment, but when it takes me back to the conversation, or MOC, I just get a blank screen with some random text. Mind you, if you exit out, and then go back to the conversation or MOC, the comment is posted, but I figured I should let you lot know.

Confirmed. I will tentatively see this as a good sign, because getting rid of the activity bar temporarily (maybe to fix it) is better than keeping up the frozen bar. :P

Well as you can probably guess, my activity bar keeps freezing. Although now its doing some weird thing that now I can't do certain things because my activity bar won't update. For example I can't comment on mocs, I can't add creations ( I was already having enough trouble with that), heck this comment might not make it.

Don't worry about it. Theres a lot of confusion going on, so I wouldn't blame you.

Anyways, I noticed that if you type a comment in a group that needs to go to moderation, you don't end up with that blank screen with text. In fact, it works perfectly. Though, however has to approve that message ends up with that blank screen.

Yeah... instead of extending the/my homepage to accommodate for the length of the activity bar, the page just cuts off after the "recent MOCs" sections, and the bar now just runs off the page.
Permalink

Just to add on to what as been said, it seems that the activity bar has been cut off. For me, the bottom portion has been cut off, but I have a scroll bar next to it, so I can read what is happening, at least for now. It still updates properly, from the looks of things, its just been moved into the path of ads.

I've used the "inspect element" facility in Firefox and I think I understand the problem. The whole right hand section is listed as "Advertisement swimlane" as a result ads can use that entire section of the page to display in forcing the MOCpages data to be pushed out of the frame. What is compounded is that the current filters in adblockers treat this entire section as an ad therefore anyone using one will not be able to view their own stats.

The solutions are:

1. (the complex one) Sean shrinks the advertisement swimlane section so that ads cannot crowd out the data, not sure how big a job that would be.

2. (the user solution) scroll down past the ad.

3. (the adblock user solution) disable ad blocking on MOCpages, or add a custom filter for the true ads and not the statistics section.

Please note, the official line here at MOCpages is not to use adblockers.

Yep, I read them. Just seeing how many people have the problem. The thing is, some of the adds are really inappropriate, and I know, adblocker takes money from the site. I use Firefox which has a previously installed adblocker. (Comes with the browser, so I'm told) It's nice, because without adblocker the adds would load, and make the page take longer.

I've google for a possible fix, but I haven't tested it so try it with care.

In adblocker select open blockable items by pressing ctrl+shift+v, it will display a list of all items on the page which have been blocked. look for the items listed as "hidden" and unselect them all, you'll still see no ads, but the stats section will reappear.

Good luck.

Hey, is anyone else seeing an ad for a car, an Infinity, that seems to clog up the bottom of the page, and shows up no matter what you do? It has a button you can use to get off the ad, but the problem is that whenever you get off that page, and, say, go to the homepage, the ad pops again? I am using an iPad, and I am having theis problem.
