I am experiencing some bizarre problems when trying to build/edit queries on https://data.stackexchange.com/
Confirmed to be firewall/proxy problem.
This started on SEDE, whenever I try to create a query with a Group By clause. For example, this trivial query works:
Select Id AS [VID], Name AS [VName] from VoteTypes
but when I add a group by clause:
Select Id AS [VID], Name AS [VName], count (*) from VoteTypes group by Id, Name
I get the following (note: I get the same error if I have the group-by right - including the 'name' column - as well as when I get the group-by wrong....):
I went to Chat to whine about this, and discovered that I cannot type group by in chat either. Any time I try to submit a chat with that text it fails with 'unexpected error'.
I have tried a number of things, but it appears that I can type "group by" just so long as there is something other than a space immediately after the 'y' in 'by'.
Here is the difference bewteen having something after the 'y', and not:
I have tried rebooting, I have used both firefox and IE. This is on windows7.
When I get home I guess I can try a different computer.
When I tried to add a comment to this post, I got :-) :
