Hey @codinghorror, I’ve been having trouble with YYE on my phone lately and I thought I’d make a public post in case someone else may be experiencing this too.
I’m pretty sure this is a problem with my actual phone, not the forum.
I use Chrome. Let’s say I open up a fresh tab and navigate to the forum. Lately it seems as though the forum reaches a point [about 20 minutes in to using within a freshly opened tab] when it won’t respond in real time. Like, it freezes, but it’s deceptive. Because I can navagate between topics just fine, and “like” posts just fine, but the site won’t actually be updating.
When it reaches this freeze point, I can like a post, navigate to the “latest” page, and navigate back to the previously liked post to see that it didn’t actually register my like.
The biggest giveaway that it has frozen on me, is when I go to create a topic or post.
The site usually saves my draft as I write, and notifies me with a little check mark that pops up periodically on the bottom of the post in progress. When it is frozen, that check mark is replaced with a perpetual loading circle.
It won’t actually post a reply or topic in this state. I have to copy the entire body of text, close the Chrome tab, re open a fresh tab, navigate back to the site, and paste the copied text in the designated field.
After I open the site in a fresh tab, I will also typically receive a plethora of notifications that didn’t previously register because the site was frozen.
I have recently cleared my cache, cookies and history; none of which helped.
I am running pretty low [almost completely maxed out] of internal storage space on my phone. I plan on getting a new memory card soon. Could this be the cause of this problem?
