The Gold Derby website keeps logging me out every 10-ish minutes. Just a few minutes ago, I was replying to a comment in the Chat Room and I just got logged out! Why does the website keep logging me out every 10-15 minutes? Can’t I decide whether I want to stay logged in or log out myself?June 22, 2017 at 3:48 pm #1202130450
Will anyone answer me?June 26, 2017 at 4:51 pm #1202134009
Anyone else having problems with the Seth Meyers banner on mobile??July 1, 2017 at 12:22 am #1202138733
I like what I’ve always liked about GD.
I have difficulty c/p’ng which makes it super tough in the Games forums.
But I’ve had chronic tech problems since the beginning which, nobody can figure out. Lol.July 1, 2017 at 2:12 pm #1202139121
I don’t know what’s going on but today multiple forum topics from two years ago are popping up on the Forums homepage and when I check to look to see who updated them, the last replies are from 2 years ago also. This isn’t really a problem I just am starting to think that there is a ghost forum writer I don’t know about lolJuly 3, 2017 at 2:16 am #1202140282

I think when you delete a post from a thread that was several years/months old, the most previous comment to the deleted post is displayed on the Forums homepage.July 24, 2017 at 3:22 pm #1202164042
I love the site overall. It’s so addictive! The articles, the podcast, the videos. All excellent.
My only suggestion to improve is search capabilities. For example, if I type Oscars in the search bar. A lot of unrelated content comes up.
Also, the ability to sort through past predictions easier. For example, I think we used to be able to search through our past predictions by ranking/score.
One last thought, maybe add a countdown clock feature so we know when the prediction center will close. Not all clocks have the same time unfortunately. Tom, it was that last second switch to Spotlight that gave you bragging rights in 2015 🙂 So I know I’m not the only one that makes last second changes.July 27, 2017 at 9:45 am #1202166594
Just visit your profile area (scroll down the page) to see all of your past scores, your rankings, even your old predictions marked with green check marks and red x’s. I admit that things are hard to find here. Our search functionality needs fixing, you’re right. We’re working on it! Tx for your extremely valuable input.August 7, 2017 at 2:11 pm #1202177686

I’ve had the exact same problem the first time I created my account. I complained and I looked like a lunatic. Also, as of recently Tom O’Neil said there has been a person that created multiple accounts and cheated on the games board and it’s just now that this person was caught, but it sucks because a lot of games are almost finishing and according to O’Neil there is more than one person. Have they got no resources to know who they are???
Also, I can’t fucking change my stupid avatar image (which BTW, it’s fucking gross).August 8, 2017 at 7:49 am #1202178617
Our tech team recently worked on fixing the problem with updating a user’s profile photo. Have you tried doing this over the past few days? Go to your “Profile” page, look for link that says “Change Profile Photo”August 11, 2017 at 12:14 am #1202181955
It would be much better for users, if there were notifications of replied comments or new content in certain topics that users have comment before in the browser tabs, just like facebook or gmail when you get a message.
Something like this:
Also, there should be an option to subscribe to a topic or a complete forum, users would be more active.
I don’t know if these features exist, maybe I’m missing something.
One glitch, when I post a comment, it automatically sends me to the first page of the topic, it should stay in the last page.August 13, 2017 at 11:05 am #1202183951
