application error while trying to browse profiles

e
emerilcantcook Aug 23, 2008 08:11 AM

I keep getting an error when I try to browse certain profiles. It's been like that for the last few days, and nothing seems to help (refreshing, emptying the cache, etc). This is really annoying especially since I am in a country where you pay for the internet per the minute you use it. Please please fix this site, the usability problems are getting ridiculous.

The error page is titled "CHOW: Application error", with the following content:
<There's been a slight problem...
Sorry, something's not working with this page. The CHOW team has been notified and will check it out.>

PS: It doesn't happen for all profiles for some reason, but for those that it happens, the error is consistent.

    Which profiles?

        Here's another one: www.chow.com/profile/220492

        I don't recall seeing any of these three users' names before the last day or two. While it's next to impossible for us mere mortals to test, my theory is that these are all new members and that their profiles are inaccessible due to the database latency problems that have plagued this site for nearly four months now.

        Same problem here, for the last few days as well. More examples:

          I can't only see page one of my profile. Frustrating as I've been away and wanted to catch up on older posts.

          Today I couldn't see this profile:

                    This isn't just happening on Profiles (although I'm sometimes getting the same thing). I just tried to access Member Recipes (or ones posted by Chow.com themselves) and am getting the same error message. Cannot read any recipes, no matter what group they're under.

                      Okay, poked at this some more, and it does seem to be a lot of profiles affected. I've raised a ticket for Engineering on it.

                          As of this morning, I can't access My Chow. It was okay yesterday; now I get an application error.

                            I can access MY Chow first page of recent posts, but on all pages up to the last, page 63, I get the applicatrion error. Also, I cannot access any pages listed across the top..... Why do these things happen on week-ends?

                              That's my situation too - I can get to the first page, but not the subsequent ones, but I can get to all of my other pages (photos, etc.), except for my "Reading" list.

                                Try clicking on the number for the next page, not the "Next" button. That usually works for me.

                                    I also can't get to "my chow" at all. I had been getting the application error occasionally for about 2 weeks but its been continuous since Thursday.

                                    Well at least I'm not feeling "as" paranoid after reading all these posts!
                                    For the last couple of weeks I've gotten the "slight error" message sporadically when clicking on other Hounds' profiles but with ever increasing frequency until last night.
                                    I couldn't and can't access "my Chow", So whatever I did, please forgive me and please give myself back to me ? Please?

                                            Something I'm wondering about, for people who can't reach their own profiles. Have you ever answered any of the questions on the right hand side?

                                              I am having the Application Error when attempting to access "My Chow".

                                              I'm one of those who have never answered any of the Profile questions.

                                              I'll answer some and see if there's a change in my online experience.

                                                The chowhound team profile page loads even with no questions answered.

                                                  It used to have some answers at one point, though, I think. My admittedly somewhat wild guess about a possible cause is that the problem is that if there's no entry in the profile questions database, the page breaks.

                                                  When I was poking at it on the weekend I found that most relatively new profiles were broken, with few exceptions. And the exceptions always seemed to have some answered questions, where most newish profiles don't. I'm just curious if that matches up with the experiences of others.

                                                    That could be. The chow team profile does have entries in the "People Reading Me" section.

                                                      Sorry, but NO!!! I have entries in the profile box, and have for a long, LONG time (years). Yet for two days now all I get is a blank screen in that horrible dark brown/black I hate, with the Chow logo and a message that says "application error." Nothing else.

                                                      This happens regardless of whether I click on "My Chow" or just on my name where it says "hey, janetofreno."

                                                      And in answer to your next question, I HAVE changed my profile since the switch to the Chow format on the website. So don't try that one as an answer....it isn't a new profile to the Chow website. Sorry.

                                                        Yes -- that theory was shot down a few days ago -- it was my best guess for what might have been the reason why some profiles showed and some didn't at the time. Now I'm just as baffled as anyone else.

                                                        You're the second person's that's mentioned a message that says application error and nothing else -- it doesn't also talk about the Chow team being notified, etc? If not, can you send me a screen shot as a jpeg or png file to jacquilynne dot schlesier at cbs dot com or upload it here? That sounds odd, and it's a problem I'd like to see.

                                                          Sorry, but now I'm not getting the application error. Besides, I'm not sure how to save a screen shot as a jpeg. Just because I use the computer doesn't mean I know anything about it.

                                                          But in answer to your question, no, there was no talk about chow team being notified. It was just a blank black screen with the brown border and the chow logo. And the words Chow: application error up where the url is.

                                                            In case you see it again, here's how to take a screenshot on a PC:

                                                            While looking at the browser with the error message, push Alt+PrntScr on your keyboard. PrntScr is usually somewhere up on the top right near all the other weird keys like NumLock and Insert that none of us ever use. That basically takes a picture of the current window and puts it in your clipboard.

                                                            Then, open Paint using Start -> All Programs -> Accessories (at least in WinXP and older, I'm not sure if that's changed in Vista, as I've never seen it) and choose Edit -> Paste.

                                                            Then File -> Save As, and change 'Save as Type' to JPEG or PNG, give the file a name, and save it. Then you should be able to upload here, or email it to me.

                                                      Darn! Wild-ass guess shot down.

                                                      Thanks for letting me know. Fortunately Engineering should be able to pinpoint the problem with more accuracy than I can.

It's been going on for several days now. I can't into My Chow and cannot access past posts from other members as well as other problems stated. Any idea of how long the "fix" will take?

When they were failing last night, I tried to access them repeatedly and over about a 1-hour period. And all the others in my list were working then. And I was getting the application error page that says "engineering has been informed of the problem" or whatever. So maybe you've got something in your logs somewhere. Definitely I tried all 4 within a minute of posting.

                                                                                          When clicking on names to see their recent posts I get consistent 'errors'.
                                                                                          From the Ontario Board I can't see anyone's (including my own). But from other Boards there's no problem (e.g. just connected from Wine Board).
                                                                                          this may be why posters on some Boards are getting a variation on this issue.
                                                                                          The Ontario 'links' have been down for about a week - only recently discovered it was OK from other Boards.

Are you not reading any of the complaining there? There haven't been any responses from staff there. Perhaps staff doesn't want to step into the middle of that thread...
                                                                                              I had no or limited access to My Chow options and other peoples info when I click their link in a post. Some or all of it works on some, infrequent occasions for several weeks. It's still all very slow and undependable.

                                                                                                You have been found guilty of upsetting someone at Chow, or Chowhound, or both... Perhaps you are just upsetting the servers by hitting refresh too frequently! (I know I have; I can no longer read "Open" on my F5 button)
                                                                                                They are now messing with you and gas-lighting you. They are getting even and will drive you crazy!
                                                                                                If you've ever had a post deleted or questioned a moderator's judgment you will be unable to reach your personal Chow page with increased frequency and it will be the least reliable when you need it the most.

                                                                                                Moderators: please realize that I am trying to add humor to a difficult situation. I know playing whack-a-mole has your arms tired and I sense growing frustration.
                                                                                                Thanks for giving me a respite! I am proud to say that, as of this moment, all of Chowhoundom works for me, albeit slowly. I take back everything I've said, at least for the time being.
                                                                                                Thanks (and don't stop punishing the non-believers, nay-sayers and rabble-rousers).

I get the "oops, sorry" message. I also get the Error 502 (?) the proxy error message. That happens every couple days for the last 2 weeks.

Been trying for three days now, and constant application errors. I know I don't have my full profile filled out, but some is, and I do have people listed in people I'm reading. I'm a bit older, been a member for 2+ years (since before the BIG CHANGE), so it's not just restricted to newer profiles.

                                                                                                            1. GIOny Sep 2, 2008 08:02 AM

I never have problems with people I recognize as long-time posters, but when I click on an unfamiliar name I get the <There's been a slight problem...

Since this is a larger issue than a simple code fix, it will be some time before it is completely ironed out. We'll keep you updated and will work to make the site more stable, consistent, and faster.
