    Firstly, I never have trouble with the software.
    -Last week or so I have to hit the post button two to four times and it shows a loading bar in forum before posting which can take up to a minute or more. Often for each post.
    -When I load pictures sometimes it loads two of the same photo, or one when I loaded two.
    -Also when you click on a thread sometimes it goes to the last post you looked at and sometimes, often maybe it doesn't, like it used to.
    -Lastly, when you see where someone quoted someone elses post and responded theres a little arrow in the quoted text box. Used to if you clicked it it would go to the original post (the one that was quoted) and now it doesn't.
    -Sometimes I hit "reply" to someones comment and it goes to the text box at the bottom but nothing is quoted. I have to go back up and find it and click it again. Sometimes it takes three or four times to work right and quote the post.
    -The other day I noticed I clicked like and it showed but still offered the "like" instead of "unlike", so I clicked it again and apparently unliked it. Went back and forth several times until it worked right.

    -May be so other stuff I'm leaving out but those are the ones that stand out.


    If this is just me then I'll deal. I just thought if others were having similar issues it should be brought up for the Admin and mods to acknowledge or fix.

    Sometimes its like bam (normal), but lately its been more frequent, lot more.

    Btw, I cleared my cookies and cashes and am running updated software.
    Still, if its just me then whatever but I didn't want to not say something since its been a week or few.

    Yes, most of the time, I have to click buttons like ‘post reply’ or even the one to show the emoticons at least twice.
    Hope the upgrade happens soon.

    @Guy ?

    Yup. Been noticing some of the above issues as well. Thought it was just my old computer and horribly slow over-the-airwaves internet connection or something else on my end, but appears it's on forum end.

    i've been on a few different computers, and a few different networks...but the site has seemed to lag lately-taking a long time to load pages, taking it's jolly good time before acknowledging i clicked like/watch/reply/post/etc. i hadn't thought too much of it-it's not been a big deal, but it does make a difference to know that i'm not alone.

    I access the forum on a window enterprise machine often and I still get security warnings ever since the "upgrade" never was an issue before

    Spoke with tech support, they said religion and politics has corrupted the server and they are working diligently to delete the malicious files.

    The error code was “PC load letter” but I’m not familiar with that one.

    Yessir. I didn't want it to come across wrong. You guys always take it seriously and do what you can. Didn't want to keep waiting in case it was accumulative or something.

    Well we get a lot of reports of the forum not working for individuals, 99% of the time it’s that persons computer and not on our end. Obviously there were enough people having trouble this time so it looks like something is going on.

    Looks like we have maxed out our server's memory. I have initiated a support ticket with our hosting company.

    I checked the other resource usages as well and I can't believe we have over 100 GB of data on this site. That is nuts.

    I have had several posts act like they are posting, and then the ‘post reply’ button lights up again. If I click it, it posts.
