    Site operators - to fix that "Size of a request header field exceeds server limit" error message that comes up 95% of the time, edit the Apache config file and increase LimitRequestFieldSize to something (much) bigger, then restart the httpd services. This should at least let the site stay up and load real content, not the error page after error page.

    Hope this helps.

    I agree 100% with remik ,"just not understanding the logic behind moving forward, then back.a big step back " ,you made a big big mess. I don't get it .My goodness! the old site is back..... you are so amateur....

    ^^ Unfortunately I have to echo this. I really didn't have a problem with the new (old) system and this all seems like a needless headache, especially for us splitters and sellers who have ongoing transactions that are getting held up in limbo because of lost PMs, threads that are gone, etc.

    Also, I cannot adjust the settings to stop getting emails every time someone responds to this thread.

    Really? Every time I refresh a page I get server errors, bad requests, redirects to default cPanel home page, etc. Have not been able to use the site at all today. I know it takes time, but... something like this should have been done on a brand new set of servers in the background, make sure it works, then flip the switch on the domain name to resolve to the new servers.

    Am I the only one who feels this is a major step back? No pun intended. This move back does not feel smart to me... the site is dog slow, just like in the olden days, missing a lot of features, doesn't have mobile friendly interface anymore (which I used 99.99% of the time), lots of content is missing and likely will never make it back to the old system (feedback, PMs, etc)... The move's been made before to a newer, faster system, with more mobile friendly options - so this now feels like three steps back. Why? Why not use the new FAST and stable system, with mobile accessibility, and just add the old content in a new way, rather than going back to old, slow, outdated, unfriendly code?

    Sorry for being negative, just a wee bit frustrated with what I perceive as unnecessary transition to the clunky old system that was a pain to use, and by the looks of it, will be just as slow as before. Not meaning to offend the site operators, I'm sure you are working your asses off to get this all working smoothly, just not understanding the logic behind moving forward, then back. I may be in the minority on this one, perhaps, so please forgive my negativity on this subject.

    If you do need a solid hosting platform, feel free to PM me or email me, I'd volunteer my services (I own not one, but two web hosting companies... <hint><hint>)

    I cannot believe basenotes proper is back. I have been so sad without it. I hated the new basenotes and decided not to come again so it was only by accident, i found out. So thrilled, thank you.

    Private Messages: Any idea when they will be restored? I'm sure many people have some very important information in the form of PM's that they need access to, especially regarding the marketplace, swaps, splits, etc.

    Hey guy,
    Just a thought and no insult meant but... have you looked into having the site programming professionally done? As you admit your a self taught perl programmer even talented amateurs are still not professionals that understand all the in and outs of accomplishing tasks. I understand there are costs but if you have 100K plus hits a day if you put a direct funding donations link up to cover the cost (once they give you a firm quote) Ill bet you get the amount you need in a month.
    Just a thought, great site though especially considering its all you!!!

    Hi Grant -
    I put on a review of Hope by Denney - I decided that I really do like it and want to give it a positive review - I want to remove my neutral or thumbs down review.... I sent a revised/edited review an hour or so ago.
    Love your site - most of the members are amazingly gifted writers!
