Technical Difficulties With the Forum

Postby Tonyblack » Sat Mar 07, 2009 7:46 pm

We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with the forum site that are causing problems with loading pages and therefore returning error messages.

The owners of the site have been informed and are working on the problem. They hope to move the site to a new server eventually and this should solve the problems.

Please bear with us and try not to be put off posting here. A site like this needs loyal contributors - so hang in there!
:)

No problemo chief! I'm stuck like glue here :lol:

It's settled down again now but then I've been out :shock: most of the day! It was a little slow this morning but I couldn't stay on to get frustrated. Yesterday was a nightmare though... :evil:

Tell me about it! I thought I was in but when I tried to sign in, or post ... well, Tonyblack, how are any of us supposed to get to 2000 posts with the site crashing on us all the time! :? !

It was almost enough to make me :twisted: !

Do these problems only happen to certain people or is it the "new member" protection scheme? I haven't had any problems whatsoever.

I guess it depends on who busy this site is compared with the other author sites that they also host on this server. Most of the time with regular posting the server just about copes but at busy times it can't handle everything.
