Did we get a new change to Fluther?

Asked by AmWiser (14932points) November 30th, 2010

What happened to the community feed that was on the right side of the page? Was it taken off for good or just removed to be updated to a new and improved community feed? Or was it one of the so-called changes flutherites wanted to see?

Are you okay with this change?

What’s going on? Inquiring minds want to know!

NNNnnnnnnnnOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

OK, I’m not really that upset, but I did like it. Why would they take it away?!

Cruiser's avatar

No good Newbies and all their nanny suggestions!! ;))

Jude's avatar

I kinda like that it’s not there.

ucme's avatar

Oh yeah! Didn’t spot that, well done “eagle eyes.” I’ve never really paid much attention to it in the past. So it’s no real loss for me.

erichw1504's avatar

@mama_cakes I flagged your response for “too obscene”.

Just kidding.

JilltheTooth's avatar

I like the community feed! I often find interesting threads that I wouldn’t otherwise have noticed by following someone’s GA or GQ. I hope it’s just a quickie glitch…

AmWiser's avatar

@erichw1504 I know. Whhhyyyyyy!!
@Cruiser That was my first thought:-)

downtide's avatar

I hope it’s back soon. It’s how I tell if someone’s hit a milestone of lurve.

Aethelwine's avatar

If I disagree with the idea will you tell be I’m being negative and off topic?~

JilltheTooth's avatar

@jonsblond : We’ll tell you that anyway just to get a rise out of you.

AmWiser's avatar

@jonsblond No! your opinions are always welcome. But what would you have negative to say about the community feed.

Aethelwine's avatar

@JilltheTooth There’s still room for you in my wagon. ;)

Aethelwine's avatar

@AmWiser Nothing at all. just a joke, I’ll send you a pm :)

Coloma's avatar

Hmm…didn’t notice.

The only thing I would like is to see a ‘must do’ on the profile/bio page of others.

I like to know a bit about the other participants, like age, sex, geographical location, etc.

But…it really matters little…go with the flow. ;-)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Awww man! I liked the Community Feed!

Jude's avatar

“I like to know a bit about the other participants, like age, sex, geographical location, etc.”

Some folks that to keep that info to themselves. :)

Coloma's avatar

@mama_cakes

Just my preference, I like to get a well rounded picture of others, but, I understand those that wish to keep most of their info. private for whatever reasons. :-)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@Coloma Okay, 31 yr old female here, in Texas. Married to a hottie with 2 adorable daughters, hate long walks on the beach. I love my computer, I have a long standing love affair with chocolate, and I think my male cat is really a creepy man in a cat suit. Slightly pudgy from having two babies, but I’m okay with my body. I eat leftover Chinese food for breakfast and I sing loudly in the shower. I’m mortally terrified of spiders and I take them out at every opportunity. I wish death upon anyone who abuses a child, I’d like to personally gut the man who ruined my innocence…... and I like to bake. :P

Coloma's avatar

@WillWorkForChocolate

Excellent, now I have a clearer picture of the person behind the name! ;-)

JilltheTooth's avatar

@jonsblond : Yay! I’ll bring some carrots for the horsies!

iamthemob's avatar

I love the feed. I thought it was just gone for a temporary update situation…

…I hope I’m right.

Brian1946's avatar

As I remember from the email that I got, the Feed was causing problems with Fluther, and has been temporarily turned off until that can be resolved.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Such a conundrum.

wundayatta's avatar

I’m not going to miss it. It never helped me do anything here. If you hadn’t pointed it out, I probably never would have noticed.

augustlan's avatar

As @Brian1946 says, it’s a temporary situation. The feed will return once we’ve fixed the issue it was causing. Hopefully, it will be back within 24 hours.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Goody! Yay, Auggie!

augustlan's avatar

Thanks to J0E and marinelife for bringing this question to my attention!

Cruiser's avatar

Just got another change….all my answer/replies in my profile are gone? Someone must be under the hood again….

JilltheTooth's avatar

Ack! Mine, too!

augustlan's avatar

I’m trying to find out what’s up with that…

JilltheTooth's avatar

I have faith. It will all be well.

timtrueman's avatar

The community feed is here to stay. Occasionally if there’s a glitch or downtime we disable it to get things running again. It should be back right now.

I’m not sure why you’re not seeing your responses on your profile. I will fix that. That was definitely not intentional.

Aethelwine's avatar

awww… little auggie photo. cute :)

lillycoyote's avatar

@timtrueman Good. I’m one of those people who likes the community feed. I guess not everyone does.

iamthemob's avatar

I’m glad to see the Community Feed back…but my responses are, alas, gone as well!

JilltheTooth's avatar

Everything seems a little wonky at the moment, I’ll bet @timtrueman and them are madly busy putting things back to rights. I lurve you guys.

erichw1504's avatar

I hope Fluther isn’t falling apart. :(

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

By responses do we mean “answers?”

I don’t see answers or greatest answers on homepages… is that a glitch or something new that I missed?

timtrueman's avatar

It’s a glitch, I’m working on fix it.

timtrueman's avatar

Answers should be back now (you can thank Cameron).

JilltheTooth's avatar

Thank you, Cameron!

JilltheTooth's avatar

Will we get our lovely new search back as well?

timtrueman's avatar

That should be back as well. Weird, it seems we had a bunch of permissions reset. They should all be back now.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Why yes, yes it is! Good job!

iamthemob's avatar

Wait – now my community feed is gone again. ;-)

timtrueman's avatar

@iamthemob I’m confused by your smiley. Is that a yes or no as to whether or not it’s gone?

timtrueman's avatar

Nevermind, it’s back.

iamthemob's avatar

No – my community feed is, in fact, gone again.

I added the smiley solely because I don’t want you to think I’m bitching about it as it could be part of the general repair.

But it’s gone now – just disappeared about 10 minutes ago.

iamthemob's avatar

You’re right – it is.

timtrueman's avatar

Today has been a real pain. It’s like playing whack-a-mole with no sleep.

ChocolateReigns's avatar

How come it’s still there for me?

augustlan's avatar

@ChocolateReigns Because it’s all fixed, now. Thanks, Tim and Cameron!

JilltheTooth's avatar

I worship those guys. It’s all…er…geek to me!

ANef_is_Enuf's avatar

@JilltheTooth haha, you’re too funny.

You guys are the best of the best. Hands down.

AmWiser's avatar

Thanks @timtrueman Thanks @augustlan
Now can we change..er, umm….never mind! :\

JilltheTooth's avatar

That sleepless wack-a-mole comment makes me think I’ll wait before asking about anything…
