I'm getting "Could not obtain topic watch information" when I post and it finally takes me back to the thread.

It also takes ages to take me to the thread but the information has been posted

I noticed this too, in addition with :
When I post a reply, it takes ages on the posting window, if I force by clicking on the Gentoo logo, I can then see that the reply has actually been posted.

Probably a coincidence but it happens since I upgraded icedtea-bin from 1.9.7 to 1.10.2. I am using firefox 3.6.17.

it's happening to me on XP and Chrome so I doubt that's the problem :p

Just a coincidence, I get the same on chromium. Someone's been 'fixing' things that aren't broken. Edit posting works normally.

Along with our infrastructure team we are currently looking in to what might be causing this issue.

User: Xamindar
Topic: How to set cups to allow remote admin?
Post: post 6731175
Reason: Not sure where to properly report this, but there seems to be a forum problem with this thread - my last 3 posting attempts here returned a forum error stating "Could not obtain topic watch information" after a many seconds delay, but apparently the postings actually did succeed and I had to delete the extras. Just a heads up...

Edit, I guess it's not just that thread, it's happening in the report a post thread here as well. But I was able to successfully post on another thread so maybe it's an intermittent issue?

We have found the cause of this problem and although we don't have a fix for it we've got a workaround which seems to be doing the job.

If you experience any more related problems please post them here and we'll investigate them.

Thanks, Tom & co. :)

EDIT: Just posted this, it took an awful long time to post, I thought it was going to do the same thing, but I got the normal return to topic or forum dialog.

Sometime after the message "Could not obtain topic watch information" the entire forum was unaccessible (unable to refresh or load the main page) until to an hour and sometime the message "unable to connect to mysql server" appear and the forum remain down for one/two minutes.

I have experienced the database connection problem yesterday at morning, I think its a normal response to temporary overload but better report all.

edit: At posting this messages the forum has accepted it but i was unable to reconnect, as offline, 1 hour long.

Leaving aside that "was" is alas somewhat optimistic in tense, especially if the workaround for whatever reason stops working around the problem. It seems that connections to the back end were being dropped for as yet unknown reasons following the sending of any mail by the front end.
