People are having trouble signing up on this board

Post by MWD » Tue Feb 25, 2014 8:25 pm

I've had at least 2 people tell me lately that the tried to register, but the Open ID is broken, and when they signed up manually, they never got the confirm e-mail. I even had them check their trash and spam. Never showed up.

Probably explains why none of the people I've been sending here in the past week have shown up. A couple friends told me about having issues. But there were also a bunch were people I didn't know, they probably also couldn't get in and didn't bother telling me.

I had similar problems the first time I tried registering on here. I came back 48 hours later, and it worked. But apparently it's not working again, at least it wasn't working at some point yesterday. The board itself was working at that time, I checked. I could get in.

FWIW I received an e-mail from the forum today with no troubles. Has anyone else been having issues with e-mails from the forum?

Another really odd issue is this: About every third notification e-mail I get for replies on this board uses a non-working Dot-Bit URL instead of the usual working Dot-Info address. (I think the working ones are dot-info, I didn't save any.)

Here's the e-mail that notified me about your reply. The second and third links work, but the first and fourth links bring me to the log-in page, with me signed out:

I'm not sure what would cause the link in the e-mail to be weird... @phelix or @khal, do you know what's up with that?

The nf.bit link works for me, but I needed an HTTPS Everywhere rule to make it work. That appears to be a combination of the WordPress FreeSpeechMe bug and a weird bug in the forum software. When TLS enforcement is implemented, FreeSpeechMe will work fine with that link. I guess that's part of being an early adopter.

I can confirm this, I was able to sign up through my email but a developer friend was unable to signup using neither his gmail nor his personal email account. Something is wrong.
DNS is much more than a key->value datastore.

Hmm, that's not a good sign. Is khal the one who would have to investigate it?

Jeremy, I've been telling you this almost daily for three weeks. You only believe it when someone you know well tells you the same thing one time?

That's frustrating.

I'm unaware of having claimed that I didn't believe you. I said it wasn't a good sign that more people were having the issue, i.e. that it's less isolated than it could have been. The issue is being discussed on the private dev list, a fix should be coming soon.
