    Question What's wrong with the server/hosting?

    This site should be very easy to host. I run and host several VB forums myself and would be willing to assist. What's with the ongoing issues?

    It appears today was another rough day for the server (database errors) ... but at the moment it seems to work again. Cross fingers ... though - nobody else around?

    What happened?

    Is there anything we can do to help to keep the forum and its software running?

    ...I am beginning to think that it uses some software I have written.

    Still slow, intermittently speeds up but generally crappy speed for some reason. One of my favourite sites to fritter away my working day when working.

    Someone should really take Entrep or imarktu on their kind offers of help, the website has been running terrible for weeks on end with no public response as to what is being done to resolve it.

    Sometimes all it takes is a fresh pair of eyes, though from a permissions perspective this might be easier said than done, especially if the database infrastructure is hosted and/or administrated by a third party.

    Either way, offer is always there. Hope we can get things up and running properly soon.

    This is a great forum and thanks to those who provide it for us. But, please, please let's get it working properly, it's been so frustrating for weeks now. Even some indication of just what the problem is and maybe an ETA for a solution would be helpful.

    I second that. Quite frustrating to use this forum at current - and, to be honest, I start to look for alternatives.

    If there is anybody around who is still listening ... any chance to get from a moderator / administrator some acknowledgement of the problems (i.e. are you aware of them?) and do you have some idea and a plan how to resolve them? It looks like some of the forum members are not just prepared but as well qualified to help.

    Please - lets keep the communication channels open.

    some further feedback ...

    The response of this website has recently been better... sometimes....
    but (esp today) still erratic and slow , sometimes worse, sometimes marginally acceptable. but rarely good.


    I'm not sure if its useful or not but as an end user my view is that google ads are taking too much time to 'work' , as evidenced by this showing for a while during refreshes....

    and also that anything search related on the website is very slow....


    If resources are an issue then you need to take this to management and get funding. Plenty of people would pay if it meant a better functioning website.
    For clarity, nothing I say is advice....

    Agreed Peat, giving up on the site for the night. Sometimes good, sometimes not... regularly annoying.
    Maybe tomorrow will be better, who knows?
    All day today has been cringingly slow on mobile and PC.
    Like you and others have suggested, happy to make a contribution if that's what it takes to get over whatever problems are going on here.
