For the last few weeks or so, I've been having an odd problem on the desktop site, using Chrome. In that, every so often when I open a thread, all the usernames are 'blank' (See screenshot)
If I refresh, they appear....

Weird. Does it only happen on Chrome, Binary?

00100001 Wed 18-May-16 14:42:34

well, I only use Chrome. I did try and test it on IE, but it's intermittent, so if it happens I will screenshot it, but... ooo errr

I've had the same, also on Chrome, on laptop.

I have it too. Ditto Chrome on PC.

It looks like some sort of Chrome disjoint then.

Hmm I've just had this on my Chrome too! We'll send it over to Tech. More screenshots would be amazing if possible. Thanks everyone.

When it happens, I will screenshot it, and try and work out what is going on.

It only appears to happen 'one time' on the page/thread opening.

I sometimes get it when refreshing a thread.

00100001 Thu 19-May-16 11:26:24

The plot thickens.... dun dun duuuuuuuuun!

00100001 Thu 19-May-16 11:26:46

I do like giving tech people a nice intermittent problem to deal with grin

BeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 19-May-16 13:23:48

Tech are working on it! Fortunately, this is an issue that's pestering me too so Tech can see it happening first hand.

00100001 Thu 19-May-16 13:35:09

ah, have they worked out what might be happening?

00100001 Thu 19-May-16 13:35:21

Naturally, it hasn't happened to me since posting!

cozietoesie Thu 19-May-16 14:32:38

That's to be expected, Binary. grin

BeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 19-May-16 15:10:37


Naturally, it hasn't happened to me since posting!

Oooh, is it better for everyone?

It's not better for me <sulks>

00100001 Thu 19-May-16 15:43:54

Well, I won't know until it happens again... or doesn't confused


If it happens again, I'll respond here

GrouchyKiwi Thu 19-May-16 16:04:03

It hasn't happened to me since posting either. Gotta love technology. grin

Sorry Becca.

RafaIsTheKingOfClay Thu 19-May-16 18:08:06

I haven't had this problem for a few days. It happened a lot over the previous couple of weeks though.

GrouchyKiwi Thu 26-May-16 12:03:32

If Tech is still looking into this it's just happened to me again when I refreshed a long thread. Screenshots here. On laptop with Chrome.

GrouchyKiwi Thu 26-May-16 15:18:04

And here's an interesting variation from the same thread.

it's done it again! 6 and 8 july.

00100001 Fri 08-Jul-16 16:52:49

it seems to happen when the page takes a long time to load (as MN often does)

AmyGMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 09-Jul-16 08:13:22

Funnily enough I've just had this too Binary - it seems to fix when I refresh the page.

We'll get Tech to take another look, thanks very much for flagging flowers
