Haha, galfert :lol:!  I actually thought about a different device this time, but couldn't push myself over the edge!  I'll hang in there until they fix it, just thought maybe someone had an answer.

I'll add on to complaints about the search function. This thread is 40+ pages long, which is too much for me to go back and read everything, so I'm not sure if these specific complaints have already been posted. I know you used to be able to search for airports and Wunderground IDs. This still works on the app, but not on the website. Also, when I search for Howell, NJ I am redirected to Howell, GA. If I search for Lakewood, NJ I am redirected to Lakewood CA.

PWS id search should be coming back soon.
I'll make sure the folks implementing search know that you would like airport search back

Would that include MADIS stations that have not been showing up in months?

Re: WunderMap not working for several days
« Reply #979 on: October 12, 2018, 02:42:49 PM »
The WunderMap loads with a blank, light blue screen with all my Windows laptops and desktops.  The navigation/menu panel on the right loads fine. (running Chrome on Windows 7 at the moment, but same on Windows 10).  Interestingly, I've seen this several times on the Storm Android app, where a light blue background screen loads with no map, radar, etc showing.

Mine's been like that since June 18, was showing Missing Mapbox error, the error notice is gone but still just blue screen, identical PC hooked up right next to it has Wundermap working fine, and I have tried every fix or workaround, no joy.

My Wundermap came back last night, thanks to those on the inside that had been working on this.

Noticed that last night.  Thought it was probably on purpose because of what I've been putting in it.   :grin:

I haven't been able to update mine for months, so... maybe if it comes back it'll work?

Not sure if I should find this amusing considering all the issues with WU. I don’t know when this page went into effect, but in my industry it’s called “vaporware”.

That page refers to our last major overhaul.  It was launched a few years ago. Thanks for surfacing that document and reminding all of us the amount of thought and work that goes into the WU design and release process.

My opinion here...

Consider just shutting WU down...it's ruined. Every day there's something wrong. Today I can't log on and only get the local forecast with much info on that page blank. Lately the favorite cities function has been AFU. Can't change or add and it's loaded with repeats of the same city. Functions work one day then don't the next. The list is endless...

A few years back it was the best weather service going, now it's been (intentionally?) ruined as far as I'm concerned.
Take Care and Stay Safe,

WU is not my only source to upload or to see my data or weather information, so I can be patient and let them work on fixing and improving things.  I take them for their word that they are working on things for the better, and that it is a big task to do that.

Enjoy,

wunderground-PWS, the usual bad server of the 3 (54.148.11.142:21) serving webcam ftp requests went down again around 10-21-2018 07:32 CST.  Any way to get a more permanent fix?  If it's a disk full issue shouldn't that be straightforward to track down what is filling it?  How can the other 2 be so reliable but not this one?  TIA for holding this house of cards up.

There used to be a 'feature' whereby PWS owners would receive a text/email alerting them that their station is offline. It's just one of the bazillion issues in the works. IMHO, this is more about data quality than any of the bells and whistles.

That's a pretty vague question. Can others see their PWS on WU right now? Yes. Are more than a few having various issues? Yes, that's why this thread is now 40 pages long. Please clarify what you are asking.

On my WU site "KORNEWPO10", if you go to the top of the graphs and click on the "tables" window you will see that it doesn't upload on a consistent basis. The wind gusts and rain rate data is not posting.
 Also you can check when I upload to CWOP by looking at "http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/find.cgi?call=DW4355".  This is consistent intervals.  Any help would be appreciated.   Thanks  Leo, Newport, OR

I wouldn't say your CWOP data is perfect. I looked at your raw data and your packets are not consistent. You have a VP2 without a UV sensor yet some packets have the "L" identifier with no data. Also your station is not reporting wind gusts, only reports wind.

I don't know the details around Weatherlink but you are seemingly using verison 1.10 according to WU. I think you should consider upgrading your upload method to both WU and CWOP to address these issues. I don't think there is a problem on the WU side of things for your situation. I think the problem is your upload method that does not support rapid fire and may have other issues.

I suggest investing in a Meteobridge or other computer running some other 3rd party software (Weather-Display, WeeWx, WUHU, Cumulus...or something of the others like those).

I also suspect that you are double reporting with more than one software or online service at the same time (to both WU and CWOP).  Meaning that there is more than one sender into WU and also more than one sender into CWOP. That is a no-no in my book. The clue is in your CWOP packets and how they aren't consistent and have different endings (the software identification) and also your location is slightly different between both packets. Some packets end in DsIP (the ones with UV) and others end in DsVP. You need to pick just one sender to send data into each online service.
