We are working on technical issues--if you can help, please read
 
I am so sorry we are experiencing issues with the forum. My tech help is out of town right now, and I am in the middle of a crazy rush for my business, but I am hoping to get some help as soon as I can.

My tech help is the person who knows about the nuts and bolts of hosting/servers, etc. I need his expertise---I sent him an email and will hopefully be hearing from him soon.

In the meantime, please forgive the inconveniences of the issues the site is experiencing.

I am swamped with my business right now, but if anyone can offer help, please contact kindspirit through the forums. I believe he is under that name on here. He is the one who has helped me with problems with SF throughout these past 5 years.

I can't give out his private email, so if there are any issues contacting him through here, contact me and I will try to respond as soon as I can.

I am so sorry.

Such is forum life.. I adnit to being kinda peeved after making a detailed and carefully worded post and was editing it.. when it vaporised.. i tried everything to get it back, it must have entered a black hole:icon_frown:

Trying to be helpful...
 
Star Wolf... Not sure if you're aware of the following...

When I'm writing a long or intricate post, I do so in a Google cloud document, then copy and paste it into the forum message pad...
That way, if it suddenly disappears, there is a means of recovery at hand...

All you need to access the facility, is a Google mail account - if you've not already got one...

It's a good document set up system, which I wouldn't want to be without...

Hope you're not offended by the suggestion...

Or even a plain old Word/Open office or even trusty old 'Notepad' document for the purposes of cut and past, Ive lost one too many epic replies off of the ipad so make it a habit to do that anyway now...

I want to say first that this is an excellent forum. I am having trouble with slow posting and at times pages loading slow. I have gotten one message, " could not connect to database".

I do not mean to intrude here, but I have had some experience with these issues. I have set up and maintain a half a dozen SMF forums. SMF is different and inferior to vBulletin, but the problems you are having is the same we have experienced in the past.
I contacted my host and increased the number of connections allowed. I cost a couple of bucks more per month, but it was worth it.
Another thing that caused posting problems in the past that resemble what you are experiencing was anti spam packages such as Askimet.
Like I said, I do not mean to meddle, but I like your forum and felt that you may benefit from our experiences.
Best regards,
Tim

I've only found the forum running slowly on odd occasions, which hasn't troubled me to any degree... I surmise that is caused by the same, or a similar thing...

I suppose it depends in some respects, on what funding is available to the company running the forum, whether or not, anything could be upgraded, to avoid such issues... However, I don't think members can really complain, when a service such as we get here, is completely free of charge...

Personally, I'm content to ease off a bit now and again, to allow things to settle down, sooner than having to start chipping in with donations to off-set running costs, or even worse: getting hung up on advertising...
