WHAT IS UP WITH THE SPORTSLINE SITE?

Posted on: June 29, 2008 7:58 am
 

I am not posting this to be a jerk but almost as a "Customer Service" assist to CBS.   The last couple of weeks I've seen or encountered numerous problems with the site.   I thought maybe it was my computer at home, but,  the same things are happening with a different laptop and with my desktop at work. 

Here's my list, please add to it:

1.  Error messages- Getting them on both posts and fantasy baseball and football while trying to navigate teams.

2.  Try to submit a post, get an error message and then find the post posted 3-4 times.  Each post a little longer than the previous one.

3.  Site just "Kicks" me out and I have to log in again.

4.  Disappearing posts.  I had a post last week that posted, got scored a 93 and when I went to look for it, it was listed on my messages board but didn't exist on the thread, and the message I got back said there was no message with that number.

5.  Ratings- Haven't gone up or down in weeks.  I see some members getting changes, I haven't seen any.

6.  SLOWWWW!  The site is moving terribly slow.

I don't know if it's a server issue or if it's happening at high volume times.

I will never understand the ratings and you just have to forget about them. I have been 98 for about six months with the exception of June1 and July 1 where I dropped a point. I involve myself in alot of threads and blogs but people who have got on in March are at 99?? Just keep on plugging the posts you like and kind of forget about it.

I've contacted CBS and they are looking into what we've posted.  I also gave them specific message links for messages I had problems with.  They asked for them so they can look and see exactly what happened.

Now, on to the rating system.   On 7/2 I checked my ratings and found after a month of no movement, the score finally changed.  I lost rating points.

In June, I posted about 500 posts to alot of different threads.  In return I received over 2000 reviews, all 4 and 5.  I have 2 fantasy BB teams, 2 Fantasy FB teams, fantasy golf and racing.  I also tried to rate alot of 4s because I know you get penalized.   My Connections rating went from 98 to 99, Participation went from a 96 to a 99. But,  my value went from a 55 to a 28 and I dropped from a Top 1K 99 to a 98.

I DON"T GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Post- I've had a few of the same problems as well.  The site IMO has always been sloooow but, like you said, other problems are occurring now.

Get to Work CBS!

I don't think this is an error, but it sure is fricking annoying- When you click on one of your rated blog comments (if you want to re-read a post to see why someone rated it a 1), it doesn't take you to that comment, it takes you to the begining of all the comments on that blog. I f'n hate that, like I said, I don't think it is an error, just poor programing design.

1.  Error messages- Getting them on both posts and fantasy baseball and football while trying to navigate teams. - Yeah, all the frickin time

2.  Try to submit a post, get an error message and then find the post posted 3-4 times.  Each post a little longer than the previous one. Never had this one

3.  Site just "Kicks" me out and I have to log in again. Nope

4.  Disappearing posts.  I had a post last week that posted, got scored a 93 and when I went to look for it, it was listed on my messages board but didn't exist on the thread, and the message I got back said there was no message with that number. Once or twice, but it's been a while.

5.  Ratings- Haven't gone up or down in weeks.  I see some members getting changes, I haven't seen any. - I had a meteoric rise, I went from 0 on March 8th to 97 by May 7th (60 days)  and I haven't moved a point since, either way.

6.  SLOWWWW!  The site is moving terribly slow. -Ehh, sometimes

Heres the link again.  I apologize for the link on my previous post but I didn't have the time to figure out how to make it a quick link.

I don't know if any of you have read the attached thread but it is good reading and pertains to this subject.  It's a pity that The Bong Show got so frustrated with this site he took a leave of absence.

Perfect example. The 6/30/08 1:12 post I just did gave me this warning:

Error Submitting Post - Error Code: -100

Then I see it posted, after having to refresh.    &nb

I think we're being invaded by ALIENS!

I just posted a message on another thread that posted as a PM, I never checked the PM Box???????  Also, still encountering having to refresh to view a posted comment.  

I was thinking though, because the rating system was so out of control, maybe CBS has started a monthly rating system?  You could watch someone move up and down in the course of a week before.  Makes sense if that's what they're doing, especially since trolls could come on, go crazy over a couple of weeks and become Superstars in a month.  Now it takes them longer to be able to post Avatars, warnings, etc... 

Just a thought.

After rating a post, the computer jumps to the top of the message board and doesn't take the rating
