Snapshot 1, on my tech page, the link Active Tickets (in Progress) at the very top right of the page is clicked -

Sending me to Snapshot 2 - Page not found.

As a note: the link to Active tickets when in the Open Question page works :)

When Cheryl sent me a private message, the popup notification I received offered OK for new window or Cancel for existing window. Either way, I was left with a 404 Page Not Found. Had to manually click Notifications on the top navigation bar and link to private messages from there.

Regarding the two links above noted by Cheryl, they link to a subdirectory called questions when it should be called newquestions.

I cannot understand what this notification means. When I click on the link, I go back to "My questions" which are all closed.


Scott, since you officially jump to 2.0 code, how can I visually see if a user has answered me ??
I must confess I stop answering questions and close all my tickets because I do not know how to handle responses. :mad:

Oh my god, how easy was the old way -red color- to view that some of my opened tickets had answers...

Phil,

The title of the question is in red when the user has responded and you haven't gotten back to them.

If you have a problem and don't know how to anser - just tell the user you are putting the question back in the queue and you have a link at the bottom of the ticket to do that.

You're right Cheryl.

I was confused by the fact that the last -let's say- 10 tickets I answered recently never received a response from the user. So, I was thinking the system had a problem

Regards
Phil

In Site Info when you click on Contribution Form in the side bar at the right you get
"Safari can’t find the server.
Safari can’t open the page “https://secure.macosx.com/info/contribute/index.html” because it can’t find the server “secure.macosx.com”.

Also you get the same thing when you click on Use our Secure Server to Contribute (and for mailing information) under Contribution Options

And the Flash Chat link (next to World Map) does not bring you to the working chat.

Well as of Aug. 27th E.S.T. the link for "User World Map" still for the error "404 - Page Not Found" but now the "Online Chat" link seems to work (I do get the flash chat room).
