    Default Getting booted.

    Is it just me or is this site acting up like it normally does?
    My current favorites:

    Bleu De Chanel, Creed Green Irish Tweed, Zino Davidoff, Dior Homme Intense, Creed Royal Oud, M7 (all versions), Chanel Egoiste, Dior Homme Sport, and Thierry Mugler Pure Malt.

    For those who don't know, the server for Basenotes exists on an interdimensional rift, shifting from galaxy to galaxy.

    It really infuriates me when I find a really fascinating thread, type in a well thought out 10 line reply only to have it crap out. I could throw the Laptop. I try to frantically type in a few word reply mostly and hit enter just so as not to lose it.

    I'm certainly getting 'whiffs' of Basenotes here when a little more linearity and tenacity is called for.

    The connectivity problem is so chronic I'm almost used to it. It's only when I visit other sites that I realize how bad Basenotes is. It is the only site I have any real problem with.

    Yeah.... what he said.

    Wish some of my frags had the longevity of the server problems here.

    If you use Firefox there are add ons that save the info you enter into fields so you don't lose it all. I think the one I use is Lazarus, and if any webpage I'm on goes down at least I know I will be able to recover the text I have entered.

    Very helpful Tappio. Thanks. I've been trying to respond to a PM and everytime I try and send it out I get the database error.

    What's up with the pure protein banners? I have to reload the page 3 times before any link works.

    Happens to me on my iPad - I think the new advertisements have a transparent div that drops down and covers the top nav bars. Great idea. *sigh* So, now, even when the page does load, there are still problems with its usability.

    Cumbersome as it may seem typing your post in a parallel running program such an email or Microsoft Word, then copying it and pasting and posting to the Basenotes Thread of your choice works.

    BN plus members can turn off the ads!!!!!!
    If you subscribe, you can escape being advertised to

    Anyone else can use Adblock
    And agree, Firefox.

    The rest is being worked on, as I understand it, a lot of re-programming going on, but a lot of data to preserve, maybe?

    I hate that Pure protein banner on the top, everytime I change or renew the page that thing just expands by itself, why they put there an expand button if it's going to do it anyways.

    It's sad that nobody will do anything about it. I am sure some forum members would be willing to help out if they could.

    I consider this website to me just as important as a library. It needs to be up and running....regardless of what stands in it's way.

    Thanks...the possibility of loss of a post is in direct proportion to how much time I spend on it, and how passionate about the subject I am.

    LOL - that's right, the vintage formula basenotes will fetch a small fortune on eBay. Watch out for fakes though.

    Damm, I hate reformulations ;->

    Edit - in spite of the quirks and drop outs etc., this site is brilliant. Lots of great information, and loads of helpful / knowledgeable members. The drop outs and other issues are a little irritating, but I don't find it all that bad.

    When it gets really bad, I swear I am going to Fragrantica. But the lack of decent forums, and the thought of re-typing in 221 frags reviews I have tried and reviewed always dissuades me. I like their picture notes, and that we 'vote' on which notes are most prominent, but the reviews are not the same quality as BN and you can't easily see how many likes/neutral/dislikes a frag. has.

    That damn Pure Protein banner is a royal p-i-t-a if you use an iPad. I understand the need for advertising income and I will gladly click on a banner or two but not when that banner holds the page hostage. The only thing a banner like that does is guarantee that I will avoid their product at all costs.

    Thats exactly what I think! It's so bad that I don't want to log in. I understand advertising but this is too much, way too much.
