[Everyone Please Read] White Blank pages
« on: May 13, 2007, 04:36:04 PM »
I need input from EVERYONE who has this problem.

When do you see it the most?

Is it keeping you from posting?

Do you ever give up trying to read or post because of it?

Thank you for your participation in this survey as we try to fine tune OCnet's operation.

Today I was getting 20 white pages to 1 load of a page. It happens on the main page, but seems to happen more when viewing PMs or site preferences and editing your own profile.

I get them at all times, but today has been the worst so far for me. Usually I get them about 40% of the time, no matter when I visit.

By 'White Blank Pages' do you mean an actual white page loading or are you refering to a 'Cannot find server' error, the latter is the one I have the most problem with and I know it's something site specific. It took me three attempts just to post this message today and I've lost posts in the past, but that's my fault for forgetting to copy them first.

I do usually get at least a few a day, though I'll hold off on voting for a few days because I'm not sure when exactly they happen.  They haven't caused me to reduce the amount of posts I've made-- much to the chagrin of some  ;D I have had to copy stuff to notepade files before, because I got tired of trying after a few attempts, and then came back the next day.

EDIT--I know my sentences are convoluted, but the one in this post was a really doozy, so I rewrote it!

Just a white page after finished loading.  No "403" errors (I wonder why that number).

I don't know if this is a part of the same problem, but OC.Net takes the longest to load out of any website I try.  Even ESPN is quicker, and they have images and video's out the wazoo.  It might be part of the same problem...

I've had a problem accessing threads (including, ironically, this one) for the last half hour. It's the "page cannot display/not found" type of thing, just an oc.net error or completely blank page.

I have at least a few a day, including one trying to access this thread! The worst time of day is exactly when one would expect it (6 p.m. to 11 p.m.). They're very annoying, but love endures all things.

P.S. They occur on all sections of the site for me (main forum page, threads, etc.). Also, as my serbian friend mentioned, the site in general has been running very slowly.

I've been getting these blank white pages pretty often the past week or so, and they don't seem to favor a particular time of day.  During one of these white page sessions late Friday night (ca. 2:00 a.m. EST Saturday), I checked and saw that only two users in addition to myself had been logged on within the previous 15 minutes.  Sometimes the issue was so pervasively annoying that I just gave up doing anything on the forum and came back some time later.

I have to concur, this site has, since the server switch has been the slowest loading site for me of all the sites I visit too, I visit digg.com, which is notoriously slow a lot too.

Ya, beginning 7 PM today, and so far, I'm getting white pages.  I'm not voting yet to see who this plays out during the week.

God bless.

Now I'm not able to see the newer posts on this thread...? I see in the "show unread posts..." link that people are posting here, but when I come here, the last post that it shows is an older one from last night.

UPDATE--I can see the new posts in the topic summary below while composing/editing a post, but after the post is added to the thread, the two newer posts (by Anastasios and Serb1389) disappear again.

This is unrelated to the white page error. I'll take it under advisement though.

Hi Anastasios,

When do you see it the most?
Since the switch over.  It took me three days to even be able to get on to the site.  Last evening (11:15 pm EST), I managed to get one message posted then gave up.

Is it keeping you from posting?
Yes.  I replied to a message on the embroidery thread but could not get it to upload.  I gave up by 11:30 pm. EST.  Just now at 9:00 am EST, it has taken me 4 tries to get a window open to post.  I hope this goes through.

Do you ever give up trying to read or post because of it?
Yup.

Hello Anastasios,

I tried to post a topic under Christian News and it WSODed.  Now one version has my post in it, and one is completely blank.

You know what happens for me...

When I tried to post a new topic once it WSOD'ed me.  SO I just clicked on the "back" button and it went to my "new topic post" screen, with my original message.  Then I clicked on the topic link...lets say "free for all" and it went to the general free for all page and my new topic was posted!  Even though I got the WSOD. 

I don't know if this works for everyone, but hey its worth a try. 
I got nothing.

The company we are hosted on claims they have moved the site over to a new server and that it should be working.

I've been getting this error a lot in the last 30 minutes....  Kept me off the site!

My suspicion is that these white screens occur most often when attempting to load a page while another user is logging on/off the site.
