Is anyone else experiencing problems trying to post in threads when using the Bigfooty app on AppLe devices?
I can access the boards and read content, but am unable to post replies; usingiPhone and Ipad. I‘ve noticed this issue after recently updating to IOS 13.1.2.

Whose in charge of the Bay these days Chief?...I'd like to seek permission to be allowed back on it, given it's been 5 years or so.

3 or 4 times now when on big footy (hasn't happened on another website yet) my browser just redirects to a Mac support site saying I have a virus.

Could this be somehow bigfooty related? I don't use a lot of websites but like I said it hasn't happened on any other website yet which makes me think it's not my actual laptop.

If you can get a screengrab of the page, the URL etc I can fire it off to the ad networks.

They seem to have new methods for detecting rogue ads so they may have already killed it.

I can try but after it comes up it then has the pop up come up so I close down the whole browser. So it initially goes to the website that says I have a virus that looks like a legit Mac support website, but then a pop up appears that looks like one of those things you'll never be able to click out of.

It's just weird that so far it's only happening on bigfooty. Not youtube, reddit or the other 2-3 sites I use (but I don't use them anywhere near as much).

Chief is there an issue with changing avatars ? I am on Windows 8 laptop using Chrome to access the site and it seems the Choose File option allows you to you find a JPEG on your desktop but when you open it it doesnt appear in the top left of the screen.

Given you cant pickup a new av image you cant change the current one.

A couple of others on the SFA board are currently seeing this issue.

Might be due to server changes today. TechFerret is unavailable until tomorrow but this ping should alert him to check it out.

Do you get any error message?

How big is the file?

Sorry - edited it - do you get any error messages?

How big is the file? Can you attack it to a post in here so I can have a look?

Sorry about that one, Chief AceAndy I've rolled back a caching change made today, perhaps overly aggressive/optimistic. Since the rollback I have been able to change my avatar to something else then back again. Can you please confirm if it's now working for you?

Regards, TF

Thanks for your assistance in resolving this. :thumbsu:

Having a lot of issues with the site in Chrome. Pretty much every page goes unresponsive. Did everything on my end to try and fix, but no luck.
