- Funny characters in text
and of course
- Discussion board not working

Hi, I'm still having one issue. I can't get the site to load up on my galaxy tab 2 with the android OS. It comes up cannot establish a secure connection. I cleared the cashe and cookies, still doesn't load. I don't know if it's a problem on my end or yours. Taarpa

@Taarpa I'm gonna have to say that's a problem on your end. Not that I can absolve our site of causing weird problems — as we've seen plenty of that lately — but in the past, this has been something that's happening on the user's end.
If you're using Chrome, type "chrome://net-internals/#DNS" into the address bar, then a page will come up, and click the "Clear Host Cache" button. That's a deeper a cache clearing process.

I Know I am not the most prolific user but some issues I found when tried to put in a new story. But otherwise great place.

We're aware that the site will become unresponsive 1 or 2 times a day, but it usually clears up in 5 or 10 minutes. This is probably due to some kind of background maintenance process on the server, or we're being indexed by Google or Bing. I'll see if there's anything that can be done about it. It may just be something we have to live with.
...And by the way, because we don't have throttling, we've put the site back on Google and other search engines so people can find us again.

Yeah me too, I can't see any of my tracked stories anymore.
- DreamerVTT on 08/28/19 08:26 am
About three times a day it goes offline for me for about 15 minutes each time it usually happens while I'm reading and go to the next chapter :c

It’s not only tracking stories that doesn’t work. I can’t favorite stories either. It still has my favorite stories from before the crash but I can’t add anymore.

Hi Joe, thank you for all the work you put into this site. Any word on when the discussion forum might be up and running again?

@brucejedi The issue with the forum is that it's going to be a week-plus of work to do it. I have to set up a test site, then install everything, then work through the steps to integrate the forum software, make it look nice and then troubleshoot everything. It's almost as much work as putting up an entirely new site. So when i get the time, I'll do it, but I can't be sure I'll have that kind of time... For a while.

Darn, I logged in to inquire as to the progress of the forum. It's a bummer to learn that it won't be back up in the near future, but as I run a website of my own I understand all too well the process you have to undergo to get it back up.

Been noticing some problems loading the page in the past few days. I take it its due to the server's being worked on? Hate to see it go down, I love this site!

Months later, I am sorry to say, this site continues to have loading errors. One a good day it happens once for a moment. We haven't seen any updates on the progress of certain site functions either, which is a mite concerning.

@Desert Willow - the site freezing issue is still present, yes. It's happening less frequently, but it still happens. I'm going back and forth with our provider on it, and they're trying to figure it out, too, I consider this the most important issue to solve, and until it's solved, I don't want to invest my time in other problems. If we have to move again to solve the uptime problem, then we start everything all over again anyway.

Hey, at least the holidays being represented here are still functioning. That's a plus. :D
- MrSimple on 10/31/19 02:08 am
That's one thing, still...not getting to check out my tracked stories is a let down. hope that this can be solved before the new year.
- DreamerVTT on 12/18/19 02:48 pm
I had many TG stories that I would have liked to read, and all of them are "Tracked".
If possible, will that function ever come back?

I've just come across an error when submitting chapters for one of my stories. The compiler doesn't seem to like the '

the pointy brackets. Even in markup code, they won't compile. That is, '<' will post fine as a pointy bracket in the story preview, but then cuts off in the actual story.
- Ovid Lemma on 01/08/20 03:32 am
The angled brackets usually tell the site that html code is coming, so yes, they cause text to be lost or cut off if they are used.
- TG Storytime on 01/08/20 05:12 am
Right. My point, though, is that if you use markup code to make them, (that is, '& l t ;' without spaces), the angled brackets will properly appear in the chapter preview but then cut everything off below them in the actual posted chapter. This is a pretty minor issue since almost nobody uses this bracket in their stories (though I do, obviously), but I thought I'd point it out.
