Patience -> Frustrated about entering show (2/28/2011 11:13:48 PM)

I finished up my piece for the Art of Dance show (my first EBSQ show since the recent website changeover).  i finally figured out where/how to enter using this new system (though I was having a problem writing an accompanying statement) -- except that I had that same 'snapping' problem again, whereby the button to click to enter the show is at the bottom of the page, but the page keeps 'snapping' back up immediately whenever I try scrolling down to get to it.  As such it was impossible for me to 'click', and thus I cannot enter my piece....  Super disappointed...

This is not good. [&o]

Gee, that sounds like something is really wrong. Hopefully Amie will be along and can help. Did you try another browser? Sometimes some browsers seem to have unique problems...just a thought.

I hope something works out!

Patience -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/1/2011 7:22:37 AM)

Well, because I'm set up with an OS OP, for uploading art I have to utilize a specific browser thingie (Wine) -- but i still have that frustrating 'snapping' (I don't know how else to describe it?) problem with the ebsq pop-up windows no matter what browser I'm using....

skeymask -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/1/2011 7:26:07 AM)

Well, I hate that...I finally finished a piece and entered it about 11:30pm last night. Just got it in under the deadline but I had no problem at all entering.

What time did you try to enter...I am wondering if it was after the deadline and that's why you had a problem.

Patience -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/1/2011 7:40:19 AM)

Well, it was down to the wire (natch! 'Last Minute Lucy' here... ;-) but it was before 11:00 my time (CST) which would have been before 12:00 EST (are the deadlines still based on EST for everybody?), plus it was letting me select the show I wanted, but it just wouldn't let me scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page to finally click that 'enter' button. If any of those clickable buttons in the pop-up windows are 'below' my viewing window/screen (and I don't have much of one because I'm using a Netbook) then I can't get at them.....

gillie -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/1/2011 7:49:14 AM)

Yes, the deadline is EST for everybody. And it sounds like it's totally a Linux issue. I do understand the "phenomena" you're describing (for lack of a better word) but I'm unsure how to fix it; the java scripts we're using for the site tools just don't want to play nice with Linux. I can't turn back the clock for you, but we'll definitely take another look at how the site code is working with Linux once we're done with the next release.

skeymask -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/1/2011 7:49:41 AM)

Yeah...that part could be a technical problem of some kind...I don't know.

It's the same with me on the entry time...11pm my time is 12pm EBSQ time.

I think I noticed a difference in time entry deadline. Used to it said entering was over like say on the 1st of each month, but you could still enter on the 1st. It looked to me like it has changed because it said entering was over yesterday, which is the last day of the month, which would make it where your entry would have to be in by the end of the day yesterday, instead of today.

Don't know if I am making any sense to you.[8D][8D] I did see on the blog that it ends at 11:59 on the 28th?

gillie -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/1/2011 8:06:11 AM)

Shows always end at 11:59pm Eastern Time on the last day of the month. I think the way this information displays on the site might be slightly confusing. I'll take a look at what it does and see if we can take the confusion factor out before the end of March.

skeymask -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/1/2011 8:19:20 AM)

Amie I understand what you are saying but I could have sworn that even though it SAYS entering is over the last day of the month, that I always see last minute entries through the evening of the 1st. I think I have done it myself...or maybe I am just having a brain fart...[8D][8D]

Question: If the entry deadline is over would it maybe give you the bounce back effect that Patience was talking about or would it just give you a message?


gillie -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/1/2011 8:45:24 AM)

No, what Patience is describing is a technical glitch with Linux OS/Javascript not playing nice together. She's unable to scroll to the bottom of the enter-shows window. When she tries, her window "snaps" back up to the top like it's trying to center.

skeymask -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/1/2011 9:03:27 AM)

Thank you for the reply...guess that's all the questions I have to bug you with right now.[sm=crazy3.gif][sm=crazy3.gif]

Patience -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/1/2011 9:36:39 AM)

Yup, that's what happens all right ;-). Glad what I was saying makes sense at least -- thanks for the better description....

gillie -> RE: Frustrated about entering show (3/2/2011 12:43:43 PM)


I cannot at all remember what version of stuff you're using. Any interest in trying this to see if it helps your OS play nicer with EBSQ?
