Hello I am a very active member on this website (my god I am crazily addicted that it’s unhealthy.) And I appreciate everything this site has to offer and all.
However I just wanted to make a suggestion/complaint of awareness that every time a major event happens (like when the Grammy Nominations were announced and now today with the Oscar Nominations.) The site crashes, presumably with traffic. Is there any way any of you can fix this problem with the forums? Since this rarely if ever happened on the older forums, and we all need to get ready for the major awards next month. Thanks!January 25, 2012 at 1:24 pm #458036
Is anyone else getting messages from “Blacktie” in the chat box when you are logged off? It pops up as though you were logged on and talkign to him. It’s starting to bother me quite a bit.January 25, 2012 at 1:31 pm #458037
^Yes, I’m getting that as well.January 25, 2012 at 3:06 pm #458038
I am also getting that — very annoying.January 25, 2012 at 3:10 pm #458039
Well, I wasnt going to mention this publically but, the chat boxes that pop up at the lower right corner has a ‘ghost’ popper; one with no name at the top but who calls me ‘BABY’ and then has an evil laugh. Spooky.
Also. the chat room at the top is something else, with posts appearing and disappearing; having to negotiate the chat just to be able to say anything, such as hitting the back button; sometimes all posts disappearing save your own.
But hey, it’s all good; although, no ability to do group pms.January 26, 2012 at 3:02 pm #458040
I love this site..but i just read a very disturbing article
on awards daily written by sasha stone..if there was ever
anything called reverse racism.,.. that article was a clear case.
Believing black actresses of today should win oscars not based
on merit but because the academy must rectify the past is
Wanting Davis and Spencer to both win to make film and academy
history is IMO..awful….its pure racism ..
People should be awarded oscars based solely on the merit of the
performance, nothing more..Nothing political, not about race!! Period!!January 26, 2012 at 10:52 pm #458041
Thanks for the feedback. We will continue to work on bugs in chat and hopefully will resolve them in the near future.
Elizabeth – apologies for the downtime. We get swamped on certain dates with traffic, but we are working to handle these situations better. It’s something we take very seriously and are working to rectify.

by the way- please keep the feedback coming, we do process it all. If you have any more issues with the chat let me know.January 27, 2012 at 10:40 pm #458043
The quick reply is still timing out replies, and there’s the time issue with the time zones.January 28, 2012 at 2:41 pm #458044
Actually I’m never sure when I’ll time out. Sometimes, it’s after a minute. Generally I copy anything that I think will time out.
*Edited to add: I’m also not receiving all of my notifications. I/we tried friending and unfriending, but that didnt work either.January 31, 2012 at 4:43 pm #458045
Hey. I’m trying to delete this account. Can mods do this?February 2, 2012 at 1:08 pm #458046
I’m new here and I’m having trouble making my predictions because when I click “add predictions”, and pick the event it says to “Use the boxes below to enter your predictions for each category”, but there is no boxes below. There is just the manage predictions box, with this “Review your predictions and change your bets by clicking on the boxes. The standard bet is 100 points. You also get one Super Bet of 500 points and two Big Bets of 200 points.” and that’s it. Does anyone know how to fix this?February 3, 2012 at 4:25 am #458047
Can there be a “Remember Me” function here so we don’t have to log in every time we leave the site or it just feels like unlogging us for no reason?February 7, 2012 at 6:51 pm #458048
Er, what happened to the Films you’ve seen in 2012 thread?
