Not sure if this is the right section, but anyways...

Over the last month or so I've noticed more bugs in my use of

- slow loading times
- sometimes failure to load at all
- failure to recognise log in, or active threads history
- some site bugs

i.e. this thread seems bugged just now:

Other websites I browse are not experiencing the same issues, so it seems to be problems with itself.

Thought I should bring it to the moderators attention.

Anyone else noticed any recent problems?

I too have had identical issues. For a week or so the site refused to believe that any new posts had been created at all though of course they had been and were in the forums.

I've been getting it a lot as well. The last week has seen pages taking upwards of 40 seconds to load, and any given page may end up with a "500 internal error" instead.

It seems to become worse at times. We're currently getting ready to upgrade the forum, in hopes this would resolve many of the issues we all experience with the board. However, that may take some time still. I hope you can all bear with us through these difficulties for a while longer.. It's being worked on. That's a promise.

Cheers Daeron,

It's a great site and the team do a fine job - just thought I should let you guys know about the bugs incase you didnt know already!

Over the past two or so years since Ive been browsing the last month has been the first extended period with notable technical issues. Usually I have no problems viewing threads or logging on.

Has the upgrade happened yet? I'm a long-time user but the entire website has become almost unusable. I hardly come here anymore because of the slow/failed loading times.

No upgrade yet, just some cosmetic changes.
It will be in the announcement.
Daeron and Rork working on that.
However, they must ascertain that the move will be done in a safe way, and this take time.

Awwww, what happened?! I checked back and the site was fast for about a week! Then it went back to being slow again.

We should be making some changes next weekend - hopefully that will go some way to sorting it out. Daeron, our technical guru, will release more information over the next few days.

An announcement is on its way but yes, there will be a server upgrade on Friday and Saturday (depending on the timezone you live in).
