Meta Question

Do you see the blue snark banner, when you give a GQ or GA, or follow a question?

Asked by Brian1946 (28376points) April 13th, 2020

When I give a GQ or GA, I get thrown up to the top of the page.

Upon arriving there, I see this annoying blue banner that says “We’re glad you think this question is so great”, or “Marked great answer… Thanks.”

When I click on the X to get rid of it, I get thrown up from the question thread to the Section page.

With all this throwing up, could it be that Fluther has a stomach virus from drinking Corona beer?

I’ve been getting that. I think it’s a glitch that sometimes happens.

I’ve found the past few days, when I mark something “great answer” I get put to the top of the page. Then I just click on “activity for you” so I get out of it. It seems like a glitch. Hopefully temporary.

It’s happened before.

I also find when I type a comment and hit “answer” it puts me right to the top of the page, too.

It always puts me at the top of the page when I’m checking for new answers. That didn’t use to happen. I never see a blue banner, and the only snarky comments I ever get are from you guys (thanks)!

Edit: I just gave somebody a great answer and I was indeed put up at the top of the page to see a blue banner which read, “Marked great answer thanks.” That hardly falls under the heading of snark.

“Thrown up” is about right. It’s nauseating!! Who thought that is a feature?

I get the “Marked great answer… Thanks.” every time I mark an answer. I am thrown up to the top of the page when what I want to do is read the next responses!

Please decommission this new “feature” ASAP!

@dabbler As explained above, it’s not a new feature but a glitch that happens occasionally. It has happened before and will be fixed soon – we hope.

I’m also having problems doing a search or asking a Q. It says I need to enable my javascript. That made no sense to me since I didn’t know how to disable my javascript. Then again…I did a search to find out how to turn it back on. When checking, it shows that it is enabled so I go back to ask my Q & I still get the message that it is disabled.

Search gives me the same message but also has a Google link. When I click on the link it takes me to a page that says it doesn’t exist.

I’ve also lost my preview to what I’m typing

[Mod says] Things should be fixed now. Thanks, Ben.

LadyMarissa's avatar

Thank you Ben & @longgone.

My preview is back & I’ve not yet tried the search. Since they were tied into the same problem, I’m going to assume that it’s also working again. I normally try to be patient & hope things will be fixed soon, but this one lasted longer than normal. I do appreciate ALL the work that goes into this site & I try & save any complaints until another asks the question.
