Re: Page reload


Re: Page reload

Just ran through progressions, something I noticed, the screen reset happened a lot more often when I used the scroll down menu as soon as the screen loaded originally. Seems like it didn’t have time to load all the info it needed.

Hope I’m helping… Thanks for all your hard work!!

Re: Re: Page reload

I was doing some research on this and it sounds like Safari just refreshes when it’s running low on memory or cache space. There are quite a few complaints online about this. That would also explain why some people see it and some don’t or less often.

If anyone who has been experiencing this (Gus, Yankee, Bhicks) would be willing, it would be interesting to try using the site regularly on Chrome on your iPhone for like a week just to see if it’s truly a Safari issue or not.

I will continue to investigate as well.

Re: Page reload

I use Chrome and have not experienced this phenomenon.

Re: Re: Page reload

Shiek is that Chrome for iPhone?

Re: Page reload

I’ve just downloaded and have been using Chrome on my iPhone and it’s the same.

Re: Page reload

That’s strange. What happens when this occurs? The page just refreshes (and you lose any content being worked on)?

Re: Re: Page reload

Yes. That’s exactly what happens.

Re: Page reload

Same for me. On both Google and Google Chrome.

Re: Re: Page reload

Ok, thanks for verifying.

Re: Page reload

Sorry, didn't see - Chrome on my laptop. I don't use my phone much for PC, haven't noticed any problems when I do and I use android.

Re: Page reload

Yes. Ironically it happened to me once last night on my desktop but that’s the first time I’ve seen it on desktop.

It seems like all the mobile browsers do the same thing when they are running low on memory or cache. I’ve found a lot of complaints but no great solutions. One thing I could do is try to save text box content while someone is typing so that if the page refreshes on them they wouldn’t lose everything they typed. This obviously wouldn’t solve everything (like if someone was in the middle of a lineup edit).

Re: Re: Page reload

Hard to fix everything - too many variables.

Re: Page reload

On my laptop Mac book pro and I use safari. The page tells me that this site uses a lot of energy.
The other thing is I am getting lag when on pc page too long. Especially the new game Player Scramble Now that may be that my laptop is getting old. 5 years.
On my iPhone, I have an 8S. When on the ap, the page sometimes just freezes and I have to get out and try to reenter. Usually I have to wait an hour or so for this to stop.
As I write this I am getting the message "webpage is using sufficient energy. Closing it may improve the responsiveness of your Mac". lol.

Re: Re: Page reload

Update on this - I added the functionality that will save typing in progress on the main Create Message page, so if the page suddenly reloads, you at least won't lose the entire message.

If this works and helps, I can look to add this in other parts of the site that have long text boxes, assuming this issue is still persisting frequently for a fair number of people.

Re: Page reload

This is definitely still happening for me but that sounds like a good plan.

Re: Re: Page reload

Has this helped anyone yet? For those that experience the page load, how many times per day about does it happen?

Re: Page reload

Ive noticed it less recently. One day in the last few it happened two or three times.

Re: Re: Page reload

I think it has helped some. Still happens to me multiple times a day (like 20), but that's probably because I'm in the middle of checking box scores for records in one of my leagues, so I'm on the site WAY too much. Just ask my wife. I think she's around here somewhere! lol

But even then, when it shows the error message, it will take me back to where I was, no biggie.

It hasn't happened while writing messages lately though, so that's good.
Thanks for looking into this, Guy. Much appreciated!

Re: Page reload

I am curious, is this issue persisting the last couple days? Just wondering if some of these changes to some of the larger text files had any impact.

Re: Page reload

I have had it happen a few times the last few days. But I don’t notice it as much as when we first brought it up, or I just ignore it.

Re: Re: Page reload

Yeah it’s still happening for me too, but having most of what I’ve already typed reappear when the page reloads helps a LOT. Still happens on some other pages too, but perhaps not as often (just happened right now, DOH) as it used to.

Re: Page reload

I think many people would agree that PC might be a better place if we could reload and make the stuff Goose writes disappear.

Not nice - Gus is an upstanding and highly intelligent Canadian citizen !!! (and I may need him to approve a questionable trade I may make in the future).
