Problems with Community Bridge (again) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone!

    I have problems accessing the forums Msdn.de-DE.visualcsharpde and Msdn.de-DE.sqlserverde via Community Bridge. I think it is the same problem I already had.

    The error messages this time are:

    Msdn.de-DE.visualcsharpde:

  • Hi Thomas,

    I had no problems today - and last week or so - with those two and even busier US-forums.

    What happens if your reset the forums in your Reader (Thunderbird here)?

  • This is probably what I have coined a "tainted range". I experience it today in the Transact-SQL forum. There were a lot of these after the cleanup of the bad spam filter.

    My approach is that I edit the list of read articles, until the group loads. (This is very simple to do in my newsreader.) Catching up and marking all as read is a more brutal way out.

  • Hi Elmar!

    Unfortunately this doesn't help. I'm using Forté Agent and after your post I installed Thunderbird as well (just to eliminate possible problems with my reader) and I'm getting the same Errors.

    I've no idea how to do that in my reader :-(

    May I ask which one you are using?

  • I use XNews, http://xnews.newsguy.com/.

    I looked around in my settings folder for Agent, but I could not find where it maintains the newsgroup list. But I don't use Agent for news since the demise of the private MVP groups.

    Nor am I sure how would do "catch up" in Agent. "Mark folder as read" comes closest, but this may presume that you have already downloaded the headers.

    May I ask whether you posted you response through the bridge or the web UI?

  • Hi Erland!

    I'm posting to this forum via the web UI.

  • I believe as of about June 18, 2013, the NNTP bridge no longer functions. See this thread where this was acknowledged/announced on June 20:

    As of now it seems there are no plans to enable the bridge to function again.
