Oops - Error 500

In the last day or so, I’ve found that DiS gets a 500 error when leaving a page open for a while, and then refreshing it. I’ve been able to reproduce it on mobile (Android) and desktop (Windows / Chrome) so far, and not consistently.

e.g. this link currently looks like this for me:

I had it on desktop Chrome earlier as well

I just got it

Getting it on the ‘Great Things…’ thread every time I try to open in in desktop Chrome now.

Was getting this on the Owen Pallett thread yesterday and on the Kanye thread today (desktop Firefox).

Both seem to work ok on mobile though.

Not true, see OP

Yep, same.

Do any of the @moderators have access to the logs?

There are multiple 500 errors on the Discourse support board, but from different causes. It’s not worth raising something there unless we have that information. It’s not provided in the network call.

It’s fine, we just want to limit the likes you steal.

(On desktop) I’ve found that deleting the post number reference from the end of the URL will at least allow the page to load.

Yeah, it’s as though it’s some sort of caching issue, as revisiting the same post from the board home again doesn’t cause the 500 error to happen twice

Just +1ing that I’ve been getting this too, seems to happen more in new tabs? That might not actually be true, though.

Bets on what the cause ends up as with this one:

  • A bug in Discourse. Kudos to the DiS community for finding it!
  • Sean found a plugin on www.very-real-discourse-plugins.us which allows you to play midi songs on your profile page and installed it
  • Other
