Also experiencing the "Quality" issue explained above and the review archive always sitting on "Loading...please wait"
I am a subscriber to GI but not digital, I entered all the info i have to prove i do subscribe by entering that number asked for in my profile information yet it still only states i'm a member, what gives?
Another bug that I've encountered multiple times whenever I've attempted to create a review in the last six months or so is this:
You submit the review and it pops back up telling you it is a duplicate post. I've even written the entire thing over before and it still tells me the exact same thing, doesn't publish my review, and forces me to have to put it on my blog and hope it works there.
In my time on the website actively here, I've written nine reviews- four of which have actually worked on the review page. I've attempted to write a Max Payne 3 review most recently, to no avail- as it gave me the same error message that I'd last encountered three months ago when I posted my "final" review in annoyance.
Is there something else causing this somehow, because I can tell you they are most certainly not duplicates. I often take bout fifty minutes to write out a lengthy review, and that is how I am rewarded for my efforts. It always ends up being a waste of time, to the point where I'm just not even going to bother posting them anymore- since it doesn't even publish it. All that work gone to waste, and I can't reload the page to try again without deleting the reviews.
Is there anything you could do about this, or is it just an unavoidable site bug? Does anyone else experience this problem for no apparent reason?
Apparently the default text color for a blog works in both lights on or off, however, I sometimes switch it to black. In trying to fix the setting, I selected what appeared to be the default color (it showed up as the color despite having chosen black when originally publishing my blog), however, the text now shows up as gray with lights on. Is there a text color that can show up as both black with lights on and white with lights off?

For some reason, I'm unable to participate in the site polls. I go to the Polls page, and all I see is a completed poll, and no way to vote. I'm not sure if this is a glitch or just a lack of knowledge on my part, though.
I've updated my Firefox and my Flash, but the Next and Previous buttons still don't work on any browser for my digital subscription! Is this a normal thing? WTF.
I can't start a new thread. Every time I type one out and hit "post" the page refreshes and erases what I had typed. It has a message underneath the text body area that says it requires content in the body in order to post. It's pretty frustrating and makes it a drag to actively participate.
I have been having a problem with my PSN Gamer ID that is displayed on the right side of my Bio. Since I joined a few days ago i has been showcasing none of the trophies i have gained on the PS3, just a bunch of 0's. It has also be showing my very first avatar that I changed months ago. I did have a suggestion from somebody to refresh the gamer ID from the PSN website, I have done that and still no change. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Not that I know of. But I don't know if that's something that gi.com has control over since it comes from the PlayStation network...
I will take it up with PSN support if that is the case. I just wanted to check and see if anyone else had this problem and had an easy way to troubleshoot it.
I wouldn't really say that it's a bug but the ad in the upper bar goes over the drop-down menus for "Explore", "Take Part", "Magazine", and "Hubs". It's just annoying that I can't use those on the front page.

I wouldn't really say that it's a bug but the Assassin's Creed ad in the upper bar goes over the drop-down menus for "Explore", "Take Part", "Magazine", and "Hubs". It's just annoying that I can't use those on the front page.
I am not able to type into thread, my bio, or blog posts. Is this something to do with a sudden imcompatibility to Internet Explorer?
Got anything to say in response to my blog? Check it out.
I have no idea how I was finally able to get this to post to the forum, but I'll try to add additional information which it keeps deleting/not posting:
I'm not able to either post to my bio, or post to my blog. I'm not even able to delete my bio. I click Save Changes, or Publish, and it simply does not do anything. The scroll bar within the text field also does not work after entering new text into the field, only the scroller on the mouse will work. If I click Cancel, it will move along, but nothing will change. In both cases of bio and blog, I paste my text into Notepad then copy from there, so I wouldn't think that is the issue. Especially since I get the same results even if I just type "test" into the field or simply delete everything. Have these features been disable recently?
I clicked Reply, then Use rich formatting, which brought me to the larger view, and then pasted the text which I had already typed above once, tried to hit Reply again and it said there was no text. I then went back twice, where IE told me I would lose content, and voila, my text is now here. Why? I don't know.
