I'd be interested.

I'm getting that problem where a few read threads are still in bold looking like they're unread. I've noticed it only seems to happen with threads where the last poster is some bloke called Mick West. The Ghost Balloon thread is one example

i'm ok in IE. and Chrome. Windows 7.
is it still happening @cloudspotter ?

5. ### cloudspotterSenior Member

Just viewed this thread in Chrome and IE and it still shows up like this

6. ### cloudspotterSenior Member

And the forum shows like this

I have the same bug on my laptop and iPhone, both running Safari. I reported it more than year ago, somewhere at page 8 of this thread. @Mick West said it is Xenoforo bug.

Yeah it has been ongoing off and on for a while but this is the first I've noticed any pattern to it

I don't know why it happens. However you can flush it out by doing "Mark Forum Read" from within the forum that's showing the problem.

Then you can do that forum, or all of them.

(Which I just did for you, so it will be clear now)

I get "server error" on any forum page when I'm logged in on an Android tablet.
If I'm not logged in or use a desktop, there is no error.

Is this a new thing? Have you used the tablet before and had it work?

12. ### skephuSenior Member

Yes, it's new. But now as I think about it, it may be related to Chrome beta which I recently installed?

Entirely possible. Seems to be something to do with an add-on I have that logs user-agents, which would be affected by a new browser, or possibly a bug in the browser. I'll scan the logs.

I updated the add-on, try it now

15. ### skephuSenior Member

It works now, thank you.

Since I moved and changed to Comcast, my internet reception in general has been worse, with a lot of short duration crashes or pauses. Metabunk in particular seems harder than other sites to navigate in, and more likely to freeze up. Is there anything that I can do other than change service?

I have horrible speeds and usually MB is fine even when im running Netflix and playing a flash heavy game. When I do bog up I run my cleaners and reboot. If still slow (server side) I turn off all background programs/extentions I don't really need running and don't open any other tabs besides MB etc.

Back in the day with dial up, you can turn off your graphics (prevent graphics from downloading) but this doesn't sound like something you want to live with.

add: ps my mom has Comcast the biggest package and my stuff works way worse at her house. she had the techs come in and everything. she even got the boosters which did help a bit. but still I'm (my own laptop ) laggier at her house than here. we can't figure out why.

I am paying for a 15 Mbps connection via Shaw cable in Canada, which shares many infrastructure set ups that Comcast uses. I have no issues with MB. Speedtest indicates that right now i am gett 15.99 Mbps download.

The tex/latex feature seems to be working only for very simple expressions, but even then randomly only.
see
$x$

$x=$

$x=x$

$x_0=x$

$x$

$x=$

$x=ysa$

$x_0=x$

$E=mc^2$

can't see what I do wrong.

The LaTeX facility appears to be broken.

um i have been using this link http://news.metabunk.org/ for news as it did open pages of multiple sources but as of late it seems not to work to well,, some pages dont load up is it nqr or can it be tweaked

Over the last year most news sites have disabled embedding in frames, so you need to add an extension to your browser to disable the x-frame headers. I use this one:

Fixed!
