Thank you, Phil :-D




It is especially appropriate as I am still having the same problems opening more than 1 message at a time.

I usually (ca 98% of the time) have to leave Message Centre, re-enter, and then open the second message. Then repeat to open the third, etc etc.


I also am having trouble opening Sent Messages ........ that has worked only once in the last 2 months. This means that I cannot check whether a message has been sent NOR if the contact has opened my message.

Now I remember you posting that!


I have only just been troubled with it.


But now I can't open more than 1 message, then I have to go back (or hit Renew)

so it seems to be getting worse for me

I mentioned the 'wrinkle' re freezing when trying to open subsequent messages on the 22nd November on this very thread.....!

It's a bug.....!

Until GR get around to fixing it, hit the refresh button and you you will be able to open your next message.

also, just found another wrinkle ................

I was looking back at some of the earliest pms that are still extant in my Inbox (a lot are missing), and found that I could open 2 in sequence, but then not a third message.

I went back to the last page ........ and the same thing happened.

It's as if the Message Centre freezes after 2, or occasionally 3, pms have been opened.

About 15 minutes ago, got one Error Message before Inbox would open.

Clicked on messages just now - see below:

It took 2 attempts about 10 minutes ago to open Message Centre to get to the Inbox ............. and that is using Firefox.


I suppose that is faster than the 3 to 6 attempts it was taking over the weekend and yesterday :-D

Tried once more just now and still cannot get into messages:

500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

Yes,

I also got that same 500 - Internal Server Message when trying to move within a thread, only about 10 minutes after the one reported above.

I think GR have changed their timeout message. his is all connected with the performance issues that the site is currently having because the database has grown too large.

It isn't specific to the Message Centre, not to the browser you are using, nor which part of the world you are in or how many users are logged on, it is because it is taking too long for the system to select and sort through all the records required to process the action you have taken.

I get exactly the same when trying to sort through the thousands of names in my Name Summary (which I have reported separately, and they are looking into too)

This is all part of the work that GR developers are trying to sort out. Unfortunately it takes time involving code re-writes and the rebuilding of database indexes as Phil has already mentioned.

We will just have to wait and let them get on with it.

New problem with Message Centre ...... to me, at least.


Using Mozilla Firefox .................

Clicked on Message Centre in order to open 2 pms

Got the following message:-

Server Error
500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.




What does that mean, please????????????????????

Thank you, Phil, for that update.

This is my first time on the computer today (Dec 6th, my time), so I am unable to say whether there were any problems earlier.

I will post this on announcements too.

The last few days has seen some extensive activity coming from some of the senior technicians at brightsolid to try and identify the errors and performance issues occurring on the site. Some of you may have been affected while they tested out these changes and put under heavy load the last couple of days, but progress has been positive so far and we need to continue work on this and get it resolved once and for all.

As a result, while these changes are being tested and retested, and while the new database indexes are still being created for the messages we are unable to roll out the Message Centre patch. This will be rolled out as soon as practical.

Thank you for bearing with us while we try to rectify these issues.

let's say there are groups working to improve sections like: tree, message centre, hot matches, performances etc.

because the topic is MC I can say that we will release soon improvements for this sections

Dan

What is the extent of the tweaks you are planning please?

Are they just confined to the Message System or do they also deal with the Browser Compatability Issues applicable to the whole site?

Hi Cynthia,

we have almost finish all the tweaks, so other few days and we will release all the fixes that should solve all the problems that all of you found until now.
