The “Mostly” in the title is because after trying a few dozen times, I was able to Rec one diary and a couple of comments. I thought the problem was solved! But then went to another diary, and the same problem. Periodically, there will be a pop-up with a DK system error notice, and “problem reported”.
Had a similar problem with leaving a comment. (See below.) But then that worked. And when I tried to write this diary, initially it wouldn’t connect to the server.
LOTS of people are leaving comments to this effect on the HELP board this morning. I wrote:
I've been having the same problem. I have a perfectly good internet connection. Pages load fine. I thought perhaps it was a problem with my iPad, so I switched to my MacBook, and having the exact same issues: unable to Rec any diary or any comment. When I click on a Rec box, the dropdown menu of those who have rec'd appears, the box turns orange for a few seconds, and then the rec box goes back to clear. I've tried multiple times in different diaries. Starting happening last night. Crazy frustrating...
And I just tried to leave a comment. The comment box pops up, I'm able to type in my comment, when I hit PREVIEW the box turns orange, but then I'm unable to SUBMIT. Nothing happens!
Seems like server problems. Don’t see any response yet from Tech people. Hopefully, they’re on it and getting it fixed. But just in case, I thought perhaps a “Story” might get some more attention.
UPDATE 10:30 am MST: Recs in this diary appear to be working fine. BUT recs and comments in the older diaries on the Rec List are still NOT working. So, the problem may have to do with the Rec List being stuck. (Hey, we know how those Dem server issues go...) The poll below clearly confirms that this is a widespread problem, so nothing any of us “users” are doing wrong.
