Checking favorited posts - Too many requests?


Website Feedback


I'm getting the error splash screen:

"You have made too many requests for the same page too quickly.

Please wait a minute before trying again."

When I attempt to see who favorited a post of mine. It happens to a number of different posts, but here's one.


This one too


And before anyone asks, I am only clicking once. ;)

No, that's a bug where the code page generating the URL you're clicking disagrees with the code for handling the request. The site tries to redirect your request to what it thinks is the right URL, but which is actually again the wrong one, and the cycle goes round and round until the "you clicked too many times" code kicks in. I'm actually in the middle of rewriting all that code so it should be fixed soon.

How does one pull up favorited posts? I am constantly missing my Perception rolls for anything involving messageboard features.

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

You can see posts you've favorited, and which posts you've written that have been favorited by others, on your profile page. If a post has been favorited you should be able to click the "x people have favorited this post" text to see a list of people who favorited it, but that link is broken for some posts.


By the way, PMG, it would be nice for those of us who spurn their original main account to be able to see those favorited posts on the preferred alias page.

Super low priority, but it would be nice.

EDIT: Or... you could make Evil Lincoln my main. It's only got 5 times as many posts...

Well, the issue here is fixed.

But...

lead me to the store blog, and messageboards, respectively.


Might that have something to do with the space in the URL?

Yay! I broke more things yesterday than I thought. Though I probably should've seen those two coming.

Everything after the question mark in the new URL format is optional. It's designed to give humans some context as to what the URL is for, and survives being mangled in an email or having random spaces inserted in a messageboard post.


When I ask to see who was crazy enough to "favorite" any of my posts, I get booted back to the main messageboard. Does this mean I'm better off not knowing?

Dude, half the time it's me. Saved you a mouse click!

It means I borked it good. I'll try to have it fixed soon.

Was going to come here and point out the same thing. Since I check to see who has favorited my posts as well. But I see Gary knows and is slaving away to fix it.

I thought we could have this fixed before the weekend but at the last minute I found a flaw in the new code so we're leaving the old code in place until Monday. Sorry about that, I was looking forward to the new code.

I'm too lazy to read this thread in full - has the weird alignment issue on iPhones been mentioned? When I go to someone's profile, all the text is squeezed into the far right margin and is unreadable. Same thing happens for other profile tabs.

Apparently, I'm also too lazy to even find the right thread. Oh well, this is as good a place as any to get the pmg's attention.

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

Fortunately I am too lazy to bother adding that to my todo list before Monday, by which time I will have forgotten this thread exists. Also it looks fine on my iPhone. Are you sure you're using a real iPhone and not a empty beer can or something?

Spoiler:
It's possible I'm not seeing what you're seeing because I have sekrit admin powers. How long has this been going on?

It's even worse on my empty beer can. I just noticed it tonight, but I'm not sure when I last looked at a profile on my phone.

Someone favorited this post, and we won't know who until Monday!

Oh the huge manatee!

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

Viewing who's favorited a post should be fixed now. Sebastian, we're still investigating your beer can.

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

OK, I take it back. Viewing who's favorited a post in a product discussion thread is still broken.

I see what you did there.

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

I forgot to mention, we fixed viewing who's favorited a comment in a product discussion thread.

Edit: And just as I hit the submit button on this post, I thought to myself, "I wonder if viewing favorites on a comment in a blog post discussion thread is broken..." And it turns out, it is.

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

But it's fixed now. I'm sure something else is broken but I don't know what that is just yet. I am confident it will come, however. The b0rken always does.

Cool now I can keep track of all the crazy people aka people who favorite anything I post.
