Not a bug report but I wanted to say that there is noticeable improvement in the site's performance. Everything loads faster.

small bug but but can't click on the numbers for pages of any board, just a gray number not a link. "Next" works to move through them, catalog works.

Thank you for your report, this has now been fixed!

when will the site migration most likely occur and of course what engine(I don't know if that's the right term) can be the most similar to the aesthetic of LC?

not really an issue but the spaces between the attached file metadata fields are different compared to before: there used to be a comma and a space and now there is just a comma as delimiter. not a big deal or anything but noticed so thought i'd report!

Just wanted to say thanks to admin! Can't believe you're the first one in almost a decade who bothered to update the server! Looking forward to what comes next and maybe getting some of the features you promised last month?

No. 74014

Currently can't upload mp4s directly to the site. Instead it's either not posting due to lack of text, or just posting the text without the video.

I'm not sure what happened here but this showed up at the bottom of a page suddenly and I laughed my ass off. It linked to the pro-ana thread and at the corner of my screen was another icon I couldn't see but clicked on which took me to the shayna thread. I hope this is a new feature for "ads" for other threads but I think it messed up in execution

Samefag to show a screenshot of the error message that I get: picrel. I've tried uploading a lot of .pngs and they all give me this same error message.

No. 74325

We haven't been able to replicate this issue. Can you please either email one of the images you were trying to upload to admin@lolcow.farm or upload the image to imgur or somewhere similar and post the URL here? It will be much easier to resolve with an image to use for testing.

The post flood timer was reverted to exactly how it was before Hellweek, so it should be behaving how it has been for years. We'll look into it and make sure it is functioning correctly though. As an aside, if you're trying to post the exact same text as one of your recent posts (same IP) the timer is much longer (5 minutes).

No. 74327

Here's the imgur link to a test image:
I tried to post itt just now but it didn't work, it gave me the same error message. Sorry in advance if this is a me problem and not a site problem, I will feel silly if it turns out that you can upload it but I couldn't.

No. 74328

File: 1712051629624.png (6.6 KB, 578x235, fHJdmJH.png)

The image posts fine for me, but it may be that Imgur stripped something out that was causing the issue. If you save the image from Imgur and try and post it here does it work for you? Were all the .png files that were causing the problem screenshots, or was it any .png image?

No. 74329

It's always screenshots. When I take a screenshot on my laptop, it makes the image into a .png and usually that's what I'll upload to lc. I used to be able to post them no problem from before the update, which is what makes it weird to me.

No. 74330

Can you try posting a screenshot now? I think I've fixed it.

No. 74331

I just tried but it's still giving me the same error message as here >>74307 , I'm not sure what's up because I can upload the screenshots fine in other places like cc and even here before update. Sorry to give you so much trouble

No. 74332

It's usually when I want to post multiple pictures on /m/ or re-post my post after deleting (fixing typos or adding info etc) it makes sense now

No. 74334

I made another change, can you try again now? The reason why is because when we updated all the packages etc. running on the server, the package that processes images was also updated and it added new checks that it didn't previously have (causing the error).

i had two bugs i wanted to report. i notice sometimes when i am quickly scrolling down a thread with a lot of videos on mobile i get an autoplay screen, but nothing is playing. this never happens on my ipad or macbook. it doesn’t happen in every thread either, just media heavy ones. i also had issues reporting a post today. it got stuck on working and i got an unexpected error message. that’s never happened to me before. i just refreshed the page and left it alone as my browser froze, too when this happened.

I got picrel while trying to post a mp4. The mp4 is 1:55 minutes long and is 9.96 MB. I tried posting with and without my commentary to no avail. I know there was a video issue but I was able to post a 25 sec mp4 a couple days ago. I'm wondering if it is due to time length.

Thank you for your report, this is now fixed!

Can you possibly email the MP4 file you're talking about to admin@lolcow.farm? It would help to have it for testing

Can you scroll to the top of a thread where you are having this issue and check whether this link (picrel) in the top right says "show" or "hide"? If it says "Show", press it and the hidden posts should come back. Let us know if that doesn't work!

No. 74535

Can you look into why threads sometimes get stuck in-between pages sometimes so that you can only see them in the catalog.

I get a long time even when I've changed the post to fix or add something, but regardless can you change the message to reflect how long you actually have to wait? It's a little annoying trying to figure if I have to wait 30 seconds or 5 minutes

Hi farmhands/admin, I randomly received a pop up when I tried to post that said I was banned, and when I clicked ok it took me to this page I’ve never seen before (picrel) saying it was a glitch. But the problem is, my glitch ban seems to be permanent and so the whole site is flipped to farmcow. I know the instructions say to email but I wanted to post so if this happens to anyone else, they can see my post and know it’s happening to other people.
To be honest I don’t feel like setting up a burner e-mail for this to get my ban lifted (am ban evading now kek but I don’t like to do it) so I guess this is goodbye for now and I hope it just reverts eventually or something, idk.

I'm confused as well because I almost got the same issue but I closed the tab when the pop up appeared so I'm not sure if I would have had this message >>75542 as well, I have no idea if I just had this same glitch just a few minutes or hours before you said you fixed it or if it's something else. I checked my most recent posts and they weren't redtexted, the screen I got just said I was permabanned without a time limit for no specified reason.
