I got a few desperate emails over the last couple days from people who thought they had been "excluded." If there's a problem, please don't assume the worst. Send me an email and I'll check it out.

If you get a screen just saying "bonk" it means you have posted beyond the intellectual grasp of a moderator..

If you're posting a message on Mudcat to say you can't post on Mudcat, it's a little weird. Click here to see if Mudcat is up.

If the moderators were closing down the site for maintenance it would be helpful if we were given some notice. Otherwise we must presume the site not being available is due to some glitch beyond their control.

It wasn't that there was a problem posting on Mudcat, Jeri, just that a member couldn't log in. The opening poster posted as a Guest.

It's possible that the OP had been accessing the old http site as RtS described, maybe using an old bookmark. If so he probably would not have been able to log in because the link would have taken him to the new https site which was unavailable.

If he had already been signed in he would probably have been able to post - as RtS himself did at 05:38 and 05:43 AM that day - when I think the main site was unavailable.

Doug Chadwick, I sort of had to interpret, because Mudcat HAD been down just before he posted. Too many questions about what means "log in". The vagueness doesn't stop us all from making suggestions, though.

Steve Gardham, moderators don't close down the site. The only person who can do that is Max, and he probably doesn't have time, plus I believe many times, Mudcat is down and he didn't do it.

My heartfelt thanks to GUEST some bloke.

That screen just saying "bonk" happened to me too.
I took it very personally indeed.
Now I know it wasn't just me.
You have no idea how much I needed to know that.

Thanks and season's best.

Calm down, everybody. If the guy who runs the show has to shut the bloody thing down for an hour or ten, for reasons best known to himself, the same himself wot is paying for all this, then just get on with the rest of your life and look in now and again to see when all is back.

With you, Steve.

What's all this 'bonk' and 'muddy'? My screen just says something like 'offline' or 'service not currently available, try again later'.

'muddy' is one of the servers used (see by the logo top left of page)
The servers take names from Blues artists (I think). There's also an 'Ella'

It's best not to use those alternate server names. Mudcat is designed to operate at this URL: https://mudcat.org/

Those other URLs are primarily for administrative access. Using them can cause us problems - at least, that's what Max told me.

There were a number of people who had cookie problems last week, and some were not able to reset their cookies for a day or two.

Max lives in State College, which seems to have some of the worst weather in Pennsylvania. He gets nasty storms that knock his power out for days on end. And then Mudcat doesn't work, and he can't tell us what's happening.

"Days on end" - not so much. A couple of days, maybe. Come up to New Hampshire if you want days on end. I'm guessing he could tell us details of what was going on, when it was going on, if he didn't have to try to fix it and engage in life. I can manage to not freak out for a couple days.

If you log into Mudcat the way it's designed (Joe's link), Mudcat will poke a server. You can tell which one serves you (for tipping purposes), because it's in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. "Muddy" is one of the servers. There were a few others.

From: GUEST,who put the bonk?
Date: 18 Dec 17 - 01:54 PM

I still wanna know what "bonk" was about.
If I may pose a more specific question, it would be:

who put the bonk in the bonk screen?
Had the screen shown me
"service not currently available,"
I could have understood that and not taken it personally.

Instead, when I tried to link to the log-in screen --
never mind actually logging in --
up comes blank white all across the screen except for
the upper left corner which has      bonk      in it.
I mean, that's what happened two days ago.

Whence this bonk?
Is it a part of the Mudcat mechanism?
Was it put there personally by a computer person?
Was this person our own Mudcat Max,
or was this done WITHOUT Max's say-so?

fine, Call me paranoid --
like the Fear-Mongers' Shoppe
on the Prairie Home Companion.

And yes, I DO feel better now.
