What just happened to TIO?

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 15:02:37

My threads are in weird order, and before you ask, yes I double checked the order I had them and even changed it with the drop down menu, they are still in a weird order!

I can't even tell you what order they are as it's all wonky and illogical!

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 15:03:17

And this thread isn't on it at all....

FivesGoldNorks Mon 10-Dec-12 15:03:22

I think it has gone back in time

FellatioNelson Mon 10-Dec-12 15:04:05

Mine too. I am seeing threads that have had no responses since 30/11 confused

It's started, hasn't it? The zombie apocalypse. confused

LoopsInHoops Mon 10-Dec-12 15:04:08


FivesGoldNorks Mon 10-Dec-12 15:04:09

Si its threads we were on 2 weeks ago, or whatever
I'm guessing something has been overwritten?

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 15:04:24

I can't see any of today's posts.

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 15:05:37

Oh good it's not just me!!!

HQ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TECH!!!!!!!!!!!!

GrimAndHumourlessAndEven Mon 10-Dec-12 15:06:01


Now, where's me ofrs?

fuzzpig Mon 10-Dec-12 15:06:47

Me no likey!

greenhill Mon 10-Dec-12 15:07:05

Mine too, threads I've posted on today aren't showing up either.

GlaikitFizzogTheChristmasElf Mon 10-Dec-12 15:07:49

Same here! Someone unplugged the wrong socket to plug in the Christmas lights I think!

FivesGoldNorks Mon 10-Dec-12 15:07:56

Don't want to worry anyone but its just started pelting hail here. And I think I saw a zombie this morning.
That could have been Dh, mind.

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 15:08:06

One from 3rd dec and then nothing til 26 nov. I can't find who I'm talking to shock <hyperventilates>

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 15:09:01

I've reported this thread to HQ. Everyone breath...get the OFRSes ready...don't panic...

mines all weird as well.

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 15:10:02

<remembers she can do advanced search for today in my name>

Do you reckon the gin has finally got into the servers Tee?

TrillsCarolsOutOfTune Mon 10-Dec-12 15:10:32

Yes it is weird.

FunnysFuckingFreezing Mon 10-Dec-12 15:11:05

yep I've got the same. Think they are busy deleting the webcam thread and it's all gone haywire as a result

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 15:11:31

Maybe not enough gin, Pash?

::feeds gin to the servers::

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 15:12:04

Pascha, rather, sorry. Missed some letters!

Jins Mon 10-Dec-12 15:12:04

me too...

Looks like I have missed a good thread as well

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 15:13:42

Pash is fine. Almost Chao-like smile

I read the op of the webcam thread, muttered bollocks and moved on. Did it get interesting then?

Please come and join me on my time-travel Raleigh Shopper.

You lot can sit on the tartan saddle bag at the back.

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 15:17:27

Can I go forward?

icclebabyjesusheave Mon 10-Dec-12 15:18:32

Mine too. It has eaten about the last two weeks's worth of threads.

I bet someone applied some kind of update and rebooted something and that has lost some of the data in one bit of some kind of database. <technical>

Pascha - let's pedal forward to Dec 24th when all the sodding shopping and wrapping will be done.


LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 10-Dec-12 15:21:57

Oh lord <sets Tech klaxons off>

Ok, we released a change to make the reason for a thread deletion show up in Threads I'm on.

It appears to have, erm, done something odd to Threads I'm on.

We'll sort it out as soon as poss.

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 15:23:21

Can we reach 30th and is there a baby seat?

Pascha I don't actually want to miss Christmas - what about all the choccy? shock

Tell you what - you drop me off at the 24th and you carry on until the 30th.

You can put the baby in the saddle bag - just make sure you fasten the toggle at the back.

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 15:30:13

Fuck that! I was going to laze about at the back and let you do the pedalling wink.

Ok - fairy snuff.

But I'm not missing out on my annual MIL Giant Box Of Thorntons. If we stop at about 1130 on Dec 25th, I will have unwrapped it by then (and feigned surprise) - I can shove it in the saddle bag with said baby and I will forge on to pay day.

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Huzzah and Hurrah!

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 15:39:41

Okey dokeyProbably best I miss this trip. Being heavily pregnant I might have eaten all the chocs you stash in the saddle bag.

BartletForTeamGB Mon 10-Dec-12 15:50:56

Not just me then. I thought I was going mad and had just dreamt about posting!

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 15:52:16

Wait...how did I not know you're pregnant Pascha??? When are you due?

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 15:56:18

3 weeks, Tee. 3 long weeks.

TheHoneyDragonsDrunkInTheIvy Mon 10-Dec-12 15:56:23

How do we know when Pascha is due if Mnet have warped time itself?

TheHoneyDragonsDrunkInTheIvy Mon 10-Dec-12 15:56:57


Shes THAT MUCH pg that she knows when she's due grin

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Mon 10-Dec-12 16:00:01

Mumsnet cannae take it captain!

<gets geek on>

AndrewMyrrh Mon 10-Dec-12 16:00:40

How on earth am I supposed to know what threads I am on?

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 16:01:14

I'm chocolate-drunk on Turnip's MIL's present (possibly, I may have stolen her raleigh shopper to get them early) but even so, I always knew when I am due. too sodding long

diddl Mon 10-Dec-12 16:01:56

Gone weird for me also.

Thought I must have been bad & had loads of stuff deleted!

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 16:03:02

So I've just missed...oh...8 months of you being pregnant! Uneventful, I hope?

::Tee wonders where she's been for 8 months::

NagooHoHoHo Mon 10-Dec-12 16:05:23

Oh that will be a good change, but yes, I have gone back in time too shock

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 16:05:57

Very boring indeed. So dull even I have forgotten sometimes.

SecretSantaFix Mon 10-Dec-12 16:06:42

So how much sherry was Tech drinking when this began?

OwlLady Mon 10-Dec-12 16:07:36

it's weiord for me as well and now i fancy a baileys but have to take dog to vets

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 16:08:12

Well that's good, Pascha. Boring is good when it comes to pregnancy!

Is this fixed yet?

TheHoneyDragonsDrunkInTheIvy Mon 10-Dec-12 16:08:33

Tee ALL Mnet pg seem brief since Reality took the award for The Longest Pregnancy Ever

Only topped by Nickel who took 3 years to give birth to hers.


GoldQuintessenceAndMyhrr Mon 10-Dec-12 16:09:51

Today is gone.

It is the Langoliers all over again. sad

NetworkGuy Mon 10-Dec-12 16:11:18

I often fancy a Baileys and have no dog. Enjoy a large one when you come home.

OK back to Site Stuff... I noticed recent threads missing on TIO too, so thought I'd check what Tech+MNHQ had done to screw it up smile

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Mon 10-Dec-12 16:11:38

Oh yes three and a half thousand posts? No thanks, mine will be Am I in labour and an hour later a birth announcement.

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 16:13:51

Ah yes. I remember both of those events. Anything would seem short after that. grin

Mine's odd too. Glad it not just me.

MrsDeVere Mon 10-Dec-12 16:18:09

My life was in disarray until I saw this thread.

Now I know all will be well once MN sort it out.

GlaikitFizzogTheChristmasElf Mon 10-Dec-12 16:22:19

Mnhq, can I suggest tech try control-z I have found its sorted out many a mistake I have made!

LottieJenkins Mon 10-Dec-12 16:24:03

My TIO are muddled too. I posted on the HG thread and then i didnt see it and was worried i had done something wrong!!!!

I've spent ages faffing about with settings thinking it was my fault.

GlaikitFizzogTheChristmasElf Mon 10-Dec-12 16:29:00

Threads I'm on on the apps are working still! I still can find Hugh!

AndrewMyrrh Mon 10-Dec-12 16:31:57

I've worked out that mine are all still there, just back to front - i.e. most recent are at the bottom of the page.

ErikNorseman Mon 10-Dec-12 16:32:48

Weird for me too! No response from MNHQ yet?

GlaikitFizzogTheChristmasElf Mon 10-Dec-12 16:33:05

Hugh's thread keeps crashing the app! sad

I have a really bad feeling folks! This is it, rapture is coming!

Either that or Hugh is more powerful than we thought!

PigletJohn Mon 10-Dec-12 16:46:00

scent marking my place

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 17:03:45

Erik, HQ responded up there ^. Or maybe down there ¬ if you read your threads weird... grin

It's a sign we should go and get on with stuff I think......

MardyBra Mon 10-Dec-12 17:06:24

Thank goodness I've found this thread. For a moment, I thought I had a MN stalker who had bumped all my old threads.

MissLToeishavingsantasbabyboo Mon 10-Dec-12 17:30:29

Phew, they know, I don't have to start my own Fred about it <relaxes with brew while I wait for it all to be normal again>

garlicbaubles Mon 10-Dec-12 17:35:42

It's driving me crazy! (OK, it's a short drive ... )

MNHQ: Threads I'm On is sorting results by thread number. Please fix.

Sorry if someone's already posted this - just skipped to end.

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 17:37:43

Is that how it's sorting it, Garlic? I couldn't figure it out! Seems so random!

garlicbaubles Mon 10-Dec-12 17:51:00

Yes, though obviously I don't know what their code actually says. It could be sorting them by date started (if threads are numbered sequentially).

Which reminds me, I'm supposed to be coding now - or catching up on The Fear! Oh, okay, then, Brighton bully boys win blush

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 18:20:05

Still not fixed...very annoying...and did you notice that the link in the side bar about the Hugh Grant talk goes to Active Convos...not to Hugh's thread...

Mine are only showing from half 10 last Friday!

Though I was in trouble for something at first. Came here to start a thread and saw 3!

MrsSantasCervix Mon 10-Dec-12 18:29:52

Driving me batty, having to scroll to the bottom to find the thread I most recently posted on.

First you fuck with Floaty, now you're messing with TIO?

When will it end????


TheHoneyDragonsDrunkInTheIvy Mon 10-Dec-12 19:02:37


Dude. Things are bad enough with out urinating on them too. Put it back in the pants please and fetch mop.

Still not fixed. It's driving me mad. And when I post it doesn't move back up either.

OhYouMerryLittleKitten Mon 10-Dec-12 19:07:50

Thank goodness it's not just me, but its going to make things very confusing for my important Christmas Day weather thread.

CabbageLeaves Mon 10-Dec-12 19:17:29

Aha! I have been refreshing TIO and shaking my iPad in an irritated gawd you're just crap way. Now I know it's not to blame I'll go back to stroking it

Tech (MNHQ) Mon 10-Dec-12 19:44:16

What's all this? I'll have a look.

OlaRapaceFru Mon 10-Dec-12 19:49:07

It's all gorn weird, Tech confused
Get yeself out of that Manhattan bar <snort> grin

Tech (MNHQ) Mon 10-Dec-12 19:49:28

Hi, we can fix this, but it means restarting the site so we'll do it overnight. Sorry for the trouble....

OlaRapaceFru Mon 10-Dec-12 19:57:42

Yeehah - saved by the Cavalry www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAcK8eLXObY Tech!!

Thank you. Mwah!

Fingers crossed for the morning then. Thanks Tech.

Sympathy to all the night time mn'ers.

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 20:20:51

MWAH Tech.

Did you see my other thread about the link to Hugh's web chat going to Active??!?!

Have you started the Christmas drinking early?

FamiliesShareGerms Mon 10-Dec-12 20:22:30

Phew!! Thought I had fucked my settings up somehow!

Restarting the site overnight? But what will I read when I'm up feeding shock

usualsocksprezzie Mon 10-Dec-12 20:27:51

I'm lost without TIO.

usualsocksprezzie Mon 10-Dec-12 20:32:06

oh I've found some at the bottom, It's also showing threads I was on but have been deleted. Did it always do that?

Tech (MNHQ) Mon 10-Dec-12 20:53:20

FLB, we'll only have to restart it for like 30 seconds or something.

TEOTS, what is the link that goes to active instead of the webchat? I'll check out the other thread

USP, the showing deleted ones thing is deliberate. It's because we used to get quite a lot of "A thread I'm on has disappeared from threads I'm on, why is that?" emails. If they stay on the list but marked as deleted it should be more obvious what's going on we thought.

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 20:55:03

Under the Latest box on the RHS, the link to Hugh's webchat actually links to Active Convos rather than to the chat thread.

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Mon 10-Dec-12 20:55:23

There's another thread in Site Stuff about it.

usualsocksprezzie Mon 10-Dec-12 21:01:27

Ah. Good plan tech. About the deleted threads.

GrimmaTheNome Mon 10-Dec-12 22:22:49

If it only takes 30 secs to restart, why wait...this is driving us nuts.

cumfy Mon 10-Dec-12 22:40:29

30 sec for Tech, not 30 sec for users!grin

GlaikitFizzogTheChristmasElf Mon 10-Dec-12 22:51:03

Like ripping off a plaster, best to do it quickly and without thinking.

NorksAreTinselly Mon 10-Dec-12 23:02:20

Having a problem with the space/time continuum, tech?
Perhaps we need Cpt Janeway to explain it, or Doc Brown?

Tech (MNHQ) Tue 11-Dec-12 00:57:14

Threads I'm on should be back to normal now. Sorry for the trouble.....

cumfy Tue 11-Dec-12 00:59:13


ErikNorseman Tue 11-Dec-12 05:25:39

Ok so it's back, but it looks different. Anyone else found that? It started looking different when it went wrong and it still looks different. I can't explain exactly how confused but I don't like it!

Bullet points?

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Tue 11-Dec-12 07:26:44

It looks normal on PC, weirdy weird on mobile site.

fuzzpig Tue 11-Dec-12 07:36:17

I'm on mobile site. Don't like the bullet points very much hmm

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 11-Dec-12 07:39:40


It looks normal on PC, weirdy weird on mobile site.

How is it weirdy, Tee?

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Tue 11-Dec-12 07:41:51

The alignment is all strange and the bullet points are in the margins and lost of blank space between thread titles.

Just sort of...weirdy.

This is on my iPhone 4S, BTW.

Mines the same tee


TheSecretSantaDNCOP Tue 11-Dec-12 07:51:32

I don't like change... sad

fuzzpig Tue 11-Dec-12 07:51:33

Mine (on mobile) looks totally normal except that each post that is visible has a bullet point.

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 11-Dec-12 07:54:11


The alignment is all strange and the bullet points are in the margins and lost of blank space between thread titles.

Just sort of...weirdy.

Ok, we'll look at that.

But better there than not, eh? <positive attitude>

Mine looks normal. I'm on a 4s on the mobile site too.

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Tue 11-Dec-12 07:57:21

At least it's in order again! I gave up MNing for half a day because of this!

How did the rest of you cope without my wisdom?!?

Can't say as I noticed santa grin

ErikNorseman Tue 11-Dec-12 08:04:41

Yes bullet points. I'm on the mobile site in an iPhone 3gs

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Tue 11-Dec-12 08:33:31

<looks sternly at tantrums>

FairyJengleBells Tue 11-Dec-12 09:20:17

Scary weird little bullet points. I don't like it!!!!

< whinges >

amillionyears Tue 11-Dec-12 09:27:41

I am on a computer. My writing has gone smaller.
Also, the adverts and mumsnet talk box on the right hand side now take up about 1/3 of my screen. I think that is why everything else has gone smaller.
Can I have it back as it was pleease?

amillionyears Tue 11-Dec-12 09:29:44

Actually, now also realised that on the bottom half of the page, any posts now extend across the whole screen. Much preferred it as it was, if that could be done. Thanks.

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Tue 11-Dec-12 09:37:03

Actually it's the same weirdy weird on mobile on my Kindle Fire.

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Tue 11-Dec-12 09:38:53

Ooh get you Tee with all your fancy gadgets! Has this turned into a stealth boast thread? wink

Having looked again you're right. I have got bullet points. I just never noticed. blush

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Tue 11-Dec-12 09:42:14

There was nothing stealthy about that boast! grin

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Tue 11-Dec-12 09:49:11

It was a tad more stealthy than "I'm on my iPhone 4s, btw"

That made me think of the police advert about not waving your phone around when you're drunk. "it's all lit up like a Christmas tree!" grin

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Tue 11-Dec-12 09:50:56

Hey, at least it's not a 5! grin

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Tue 11-Dec-12 09:57:19

The idea of queuing up for anything at midnight makes me want to vom. I did it for one of the Harry potter books, but that was to help out a friend's sister who worked in the bookshop.

And no I didn't dress up.

TheHoneyDragonsDrunkInTheIvy Tue 11-Dec-12 10:09:29

Can I stealth boast?

I am posting from my broken 3GS but its ok because I am getting a iPhone 5 grin


I was so incredibly reasonable wink at Amazon they are sending me the new iPod touch 5th generation for £150 instead of £235 grin

I feel that's worth a boast.

BahSaidPaschaHumbug Tue 11-Dec-12 10:23:00

<hides chuggy old 2nd gen iphone behind back>

PigletJohn Tue 11-Dec-12 11:19:09

I have changed the signature line on my phone to "sent from my iPhone 5"

Sent from my iPhone 5

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Tue 11-Dec-12 12:16:51

Do you need an elastic band to call out on this model? Best mobile accessory ever grin

NetworkGuy Tue 11-Dec-12 15:08:45

< Just a quick note for those putting comments inside less than/ greater than symbols... Seems such comments might be hidden from view on the App on some Apple kit... I have a few Android devices but am simply quoting what someone else reported just yesterday on a different thread in site stuff... >

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Tue 11-Dec-12 17:41:11

TSSDNCOP sounds like the car my friend drove back in the US when we were at university. He had a special spoon to start it and then that was held in place with a rubber band.

TrillsCarolsOutOfTune Wed 12-Dec-12 08:16:20

But I like my creepy wee brackets!

TheSecretSantaDNCOP Wed 12-Dec-12 08:53:20

What, so I can insult iPhone <slaves> users without them realising it?

<the eejits>

TheHoneyDragonsDrunkInTheIvy Wed 12-Dec-12 10:13:03

This iPhone slave user has a lap top wink

and sent her Samsung S3 back on account it was a dickhead. <<blasphamy!>>

Jins Wed 12-Dec-12 10:50:32

I'm glad you posted that! I was teetering on the verge of going Android but I'm not loving the android tablet I have much (nexus 7) and wasn't sure if I could cope with two years of a phone I didn't like to use.

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Wed 12-Dec-12 12:27:04

No, just iPad slaves users. Works fine on iPhone. grin

Works fine on my iPad too by the way.

<So there>

garlicbaubles Fri 14-Dec-12 22:54:53

Just got my first deleted thread message in Threads I'm On smile Threads in perfect order, message helpful and appropriate ... Have another mince pie, Tech! Oh, and a brandy (for your sniffles, natch).

amillionyears Fri 14-Dec-12 22:57:20

ooh, what ever did you say, garlic!

garlicbaubles Fri 14-Dec-12 23:02:39

Sad to report it wasn't my thread that was deleted - just a notification in TIO. Was at OP's request, too, so not even third-party scandalous <-- boring!

garlicbaubles Fri 14-Dec-12 23:03:26

Maybe I should try and raise a bit of hell wink

amillionyears Fri 14-Dec-12 23:07:23


IceTheChristmasKateMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 15-Dec-12 12:02:56


No, just iPad slaves users. Works fine on iPhone. grin

How is it looking guys? Still weirdy? I am referring to the app of course...
