Comments Working Again

As many of you noticed, we had a small comments outage earlier today.

The problem has now been fixed.

Comments (7)

It doesn’t look to me like it’s been fixed yet. I got e-mail notification of a number of comments to various pages, and those comments have not in fact been added to the pages. (For instance, the “AMC – Loews Merger to Close Soon” news item should have many more than 2 comments.)

There were close to 80 comments on the Utah Theater that deceided not to show Brokeback Mountain. They are also not back. I think it may have been the hottest topic of a news story that received replies.

It also appears that anything posted during the time of the outages did not make it on to the site.

Thanks for reporting these issues everyone. They are being investigated…

Ron, the comments are there, but as you note the news item says it has 0 comments. It’s a bug, unfortunately.

As for the comments on Brokeback, that news story and its comments are still there @, but it also notes that the comments are missing, even though they can be found by clicking the comments link for that and every story.

Ross: No, I got several notifications of new comments during the ‘outage’, and those comments are still not posted. I hope you can recover and post them.
