    Sometimes when I reply to a post I get "Database Error". When I click Reply again I get "You have already replies to this post". When I check the thread, my reply is there.

    Also, sometimes I type a reply, click Post, and everything appears normal except my reply never shows up.

    The "new posts" list has not updated for around 12 hours now, & neither do new posts appear on the main boards list, but when l click on a thread, there are new posts there. Not getting email notifications again, either.

    I notice that members can post new topics and can reply to posts. However, the stats are not updated (eg. latest posters do not show up on the main forum, number of replies and views are not current, etc.). Not sure about others but I am not receiving email notifications from the topics I am subscribed to.

    Slow, slow, slooooowww ... well, what can you do. I'm glad that the site is working at all.

    One trick is, when invited to leave the page, to leave the page. And then, without logging out, close altogether. ( Don't re-submit the post, like after 30 seconds or so, as this will result in double-posting ).

    More often than not, the post was accepted and has landed, as I find out when I re-check back in. So, when it takes very long to get in via the front door, then chose a line from your computer memory, of previous history when you were connected, and go to your Profile, and from there back to the What's New category.

    We have to be "smarter" than the computer, but it sure is patience taxing.

    Ha ha hah - sloooooooow happens about once a week, at which time the Basenoters go over to Fragrantica and complain, and re-unite after the System is back.
    This makes for a comparison of both sites, and frequenting both sides afterwards. IMO, Basenotes could be a bit more visual, and Fragrantica could have more of deep discussions. Just saying ...

    Slowdowns??? I've had complete stoppages almost every day for at least a week - time outs, error messages, database failures. I'm guessing things haven't really been fixed.

    Luckily for me, my experience was quite the opposite. BN has been running smoothly since the May 12 update, until this morning. If there was any hiccup in between, I couldn't remember it or it wasn't really a big deal to mention.

    It's been happening every morning here, at about 8:20 or so, and I get the error message for about 30 minutes. I've worked it into my routine, but it's still pretty irritating.

    Anyone else having problems with Basenotes over the last few days?

    It's gone down for me a few times (not for long though) and the pages are currently taking 30 secs plus to respond.
