Your Complaints Are Needed E-mail
Written by Big Head

As we get this site rolling, and with Bloguin being a fairly new network, we've been noticing some bugs. Derek the Bloguin dude has caught many of these before they even hit the site. I have seen some, and you with your hands down your pants after accidentally finding this site Googling 'Jessica Biel Ass' have found a majority of them. Here's what I want you to do: complain. I know, it should be second nature to all of us, after all, we are Mizzou fans, but if you find a bug or a presentation error or whatever, tell us. Leave it in the comments or shoot us an email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . I don't use anything but Internet Explorer, and a lot of people prefer FireFox or Google Chrome, but whatever browser you're using, if you have something weird happen, we can email Derek the Bloguin dude to get it fixed or get an answer.

I shot him an email with some of your concerns to get some answers. We got answers. It looks like if you're registered with a username won't have to use CAPTCHA (thanks B Moore), I've also had problems with the AT&T sidebar ad popping up in the middle of the page, which apparently they are working on as this is written.

-Is there any way to remove the CAPTCHA from the comments if you have a Bloguin account?
-How do you post pictures within comments? How about HTML links? Our readers are having problems with both.
-How do the 'Quote', 'Code', 'List', 'Item', and 'URL' tags in the comment box?
 
I've also noticed a few bugs (I'm running it on IE):
 
-A reader using Google Chrome said there's major presentation problems.
-I find myself clicking on a post to leave a comment, and some of the ads come up in the middle of the post instead of the actual post, and I have to refresh. I probably have to do this half of the time.
-I'm coming into the site via the Mizzourahblog.com domain, and sometimes when I leave the site via typing in a new URL, the URL won't leave Mizzourah. Actually, that tab ends up being basically useless. I have to close that tab out, and if I have another tab open, I can type in that same URL and it'll go there.

Hey,

So I went looking around your site to see what issues I could find and figure out what was causing them.

#1 - The ad issue was a mistake on our end.   Either Ben or John posted in a leaderboard code where they should've pasted a box code.  I fixed the change, and it will take a little bit for it to process.  However, I've been moving around in your site for a while now and I haven't seen the error any more, so it's probably been processed. 

#2 - I've looked all over your site in Google Chrome and everything looks normal.  Perhaps this guy was referring to the ad issue?  I'm not really sure.  "Major Presentation Problems" is kinda vague.  The only major error I was getting was the ad problem.  Otherwise it looks normal to me in Chrome.

#3 - IE7 tab issue - Not sure what's causing that.  I did get it the very first time I went to your site in IE7.   All subsequent visits worked normally, and I've never heard of this happening with any other site before.  I also went around the network testing out other sites and didn't see it either.  I did some googling, which is always a good way to figure this stuff out, and couldn't find any mention of it.  I'm kind of at a loss with where to go on this issue.  I'm not trying to sweep it under the rug, but it's happened to me once in like 20 tries, so I'm not sure how "big" of an issue it is. 

#4 - If you'd like, I can switch you to a different comments system that will allow registered users to post comments without a captcha.

- Derek

Yeah, lets definitely kill the CAPTCHA for registered users.
 
As far as IE freezing up, the only way I've gotten around it a bit is to close that header ad that pops up on every page (the New Balance ad).
 
I had another guy email me about the AT&T sidebar popping up, and I had it just happen again. I have attached a screen cap of what I'm seeing with it to this email.
