Unable to post reply to my question in SQL Server Forums

Answers

  • While this reply shows that it is no longer happening to me, it does not answer the question on why this is happening in the first place.  What if tihs happens again?  What if it happens to someone else?  How does the response "it is not happening any more", help them? 

    Please remember these forums are not only used to answer the individual's question but are also considered information resources for people experiencing problems.   There is nothing more annoying that going out to a thread describing the same issue that you are experiencing only to see it is closed without providing an answer.

    So can someone explain why I was getting a 503 from my own thread in SQL Server Forums and only that thread?

  • Hello,

    Since it is not a question abouct SQL Server product, I move it to this forum. It is more appropriate.

  • It's rather unlikely that you'll get a technical response from the forums team here.

    There are strange quirks with the forums software all of the time and I've never seen a thread get a response with a real 'why this happened'.

  • I have gotten responses from the team for the official Microsoft ASP.Net forum,  www.Asp.Net,  about the inability to do a copy and paste on their forum using IE8, and they updated  the forum to fix this. Are you suggesting that their forum team is better than that of the social.microsoft.com/forums?

    Update:  I got an email from the thread in question reporting

    Another user, Naomi N, has replied to a thread you have subscribed to in the Transact-SQL Forum.

    But when I get out there there is no post by Naomi N. What is going on with this forum?

  • Yes.


    EDIT: Clarification - the ASP.Net forum team has only one forum to look after and they use different software. The forums team here has the entire MSDN/TechNet sprawl to deal with, plus the forums software in use here seems to be much more problematic.

    Since you mention IE8, here's what you can expect from this forum when you have issues such as that:

    Also, it depends on the purpose. So their forum team probably monitors the forum you posted to. The purpose of this forum is to get bugs submitted to the forum team. We don't actually know why the specific issues happen. But I do know it was related to an update that got fixed.

    Our goal on this forum is just to make sure the forum team knows about the issues and bugs them accordingly.

    The forum team asked us to do this so that they can focus on getting the issues fixed.

    Thanks!

    Thank you. That explains it for me and anyone else who may experience this issue in the future.
