Hi! I have inserted sound file in slide transition and it has worked in the past. Now, it suddenly won't play. I tried to insert it again and it still won't work.

RFO ('Rescue From Oblivion') Post:

In early August AskLO was brought to a shuddering halt by a flood of spam from Korea (I found myself in the unenviable position of attempting to de-fang massage-parlour links by hand in hundreds of these posts in the wee hours of the 4th; finally, many, many hours later, a moderator got involved & using AskBOT routines they were quickly dealt with).

The AskBOT maintainer in Chile got involved later in the day:

I'm afraid the site needs to be switched to premoderation.
This way all posts from new users go through the moderation
queue.

Unfortunately, paid Mods are few & far between on AskLO. That means that, when the pre-mod Questions are finally released from the pre-mod Queue (including, in my experience, any spam posts included with them) they appear on the site on p2, 3 or 4. That means that many of them disappear into oblivion, as most Answerers do not venture that far.

Indeed, it is worse than that. The sitemaps-implementation also appears to be flawed (HTTPS urls in both robots.txt & sitemaps.xml are in HTTP, meaning up to 3 re-directs; Google doesn't like multiple re-directs). The upshot is that many questions (all just now from 22 Sept as just one example) show 0 (zero) visits. Whoops-a-daisy.

Therefore, this & other posts are to try & rescue these lonely souls & give them a chance to be answered. When that happens, these RFO posts can be deleted.
