REPOST: How To Avoid Bad Navs

Repost of this that I posted before and part of one Witchy posted also.

Many of you are getting bad navs, and lately I've noticed a lot are user errors. Here are a few things that cause bad navs:
1.) Refreshing your page with your browsers refresh button. If you need to refresh, you the refresh under chats.
2.) Playing in multiple windows(or tabs). You don't need to chat and level at the same time.
3.) Clicking the back button on your browser. It won't bring you back to your previous page, so its pointless to click.
4.) Timing out and logging back in during a special/event. Also, if you die in PVP and time out before clicking Daily News, you'll end up being killed again and losing experience again when you log back in.
5.) Typing or pasting the URL instead of clicking.
6.) Pressing F5 or Ctrl R(which will refresh the page) can cause them too.
7.) Clicking something before a page is fully loaded.

These are some things that cause it so avoid doing them. Sometimes it can be the code itself, but a lot of petitions lately are user caused errors.

If you have bad navs you cannot get off of, petition right away. Do not sit there and wait days and then send rude petitions because of it. If you choose to wait to petition, that is not our fault do not take it out on us.

PETITION ONLY ONCE. Petitioning more just takes us longer to get to fixing because we have to sit there and close all your petitions. We'll get to it when we get on.

Do not get your friends to petition if you are stuck.
Do not owl staffers if you are stuck.
Do not get your friends to owl staffers if you are stuck.
Do not IM staffers if you are stuck.
Do not get your friends to IM staffers if you are stuck.

Going to the hate mail page also works:

None of the above you listed applies to my badnavs, Spiney T_T

mine? it just sends me to the badnav.php link whenever it feels like it. O_o like when i use the refresh link in chat. it gives me badnav.php too and i didn't even go anywhere else other than being in chat. o.o

Hip hip hooray for all the staffers who have been undoing these in a timely fashion. You all are heroes.

I still get periodic bad navs, but no website is perfect. You take the bad navs as they come and roll with it. But I would like to see the Hate Mail page get updated... I guess people like the staffers now.

Better hope none of those old staffers read this. They're still pretty scary! =P
