    Slower than molasses trying to flow uphill on a cold day.

    Yeah, much as I like it, this site is becoming very slow and troublesome... with these stupid error messages whenever I try to post. Saying I've double-posted when I haven't, saying I've tried to post more than once in 30 seconds when I haven't, posts not appearing, etc., etc.

    The site is running great so far this morning. It now seems faster than it has ever been. Thanks to Grant et al for addressing the problem.

    But we've had fixes in the past that were only effective temporarily. It has usually been a matter of time before the same problems cropped up again and again. I hope things are really sorted this time.

    I cannot reply to a thread in the Male Fragrance Discussion board. I type my reply in the Quick Reply box, and all I get is another page (the full Reply page) telling me that my reply must be over 3 characters (which it is). If I retype the reponse in the full Reply box the screen just goes blank.

    Also, although the site has performed quite well today in comparison with the past several days, with pages loading quickly overall, I do experience the occasional lag in loading.

    So we're still having some problems with the site. It ain't over yet.

    Yup, I remember last year some members lost thousands of posts. I'll lose some privileges if I'm down to below 1000. I think I'll cry if that ever happens to me. :-P
