Website problems?

Post by catsx11 » Mon May 08, 2017 1:26 pm

What's up with the website?
For the last few weeks there have been great problems getting any part of the site to load and on occasions no joy at all.
Tried emailing admin a week ago or so but, no reply.

Same here. It's getting to the stage I can't be bothered with it. If it does load then it takes forever to navigate to different topics or to post a reply. Gets a 1 out of 10 for me! :cry:
Cheers, Clive.

Apologies for this. The server is stable, but the connectivity to the server is coming and going. Unfortunately that's the bit that is somewhat out of our control, but we're asking the relevant people to fix it. Please bear with us...

Cheers,

Today is the first day that I have had any problems. Tried several times during the day to log in to no avail. Now tonight I have managed to get on line but speed rather eratic. E.g slow or slower.
Hope you manage to get those that can to sort it out quickly.

It's not been right, clearly - but I know our admin will work on those responsible so if it hangs I open another window to look at another OC forum and come back to it. It's not life and death, after all.

Well things seem to be back to normal again, well done admin. It was getting rediculous here, taking over ten minutes from hitting the submit button to it actually posting. Now down to about 10 seconds!
Cheers, Clive.

Hmm. Not here - just took me several minutes to post a reply to Clive...
but I guess Scotland's a way away from here

As previously stated, the actual server appeared to be fine, but the access to it seemed rather slow (high latency).

However, it now appears to be okay again. We'll keep any eye on it and monitor over the coming days.

Site continues to be sporadically slow to load, if it loads at all!
I think someone needs to look at this problem.
I am sure it's putting off the few that use the forum.

We have been investigating the problems, but paying work takes a much higher priority than purely voluntary work I'm afraid, sorry. :roll:

If you'd like to take over the role of hosting and running the website, forum, wiki and members database, be our guest.
