Vern
The lack of emails to alert of a watched post response or a PM persists.
Is no one else having this problem?

Hi Len,

I never watched for these emails as i just checked the forum now and then, so i dont know when they stopped but i dont get them now.

Also, i still have the problem with the "Posting Hang" where the site hangs after a post is made. Then later it might say "Another post was made before yours so you might want to read that first" or something like that, and then it shows me MY post as the NEW post that came before MINE (ha ha).

[Note 1: it just happened again, and again before this with another post earlier. I will come back with another note if it happens with this editing of a post]

[Note 2: it works ok when i edit a previous post and then submit it, no hang up]

SITE PROBLEM LIST

Post by Lenp » Wed Jun 03, 2015 8:44 am

Maybe there should be a bug list, like A 'STICKY POST' Here's a start:

1. Screen turns white after posting anything. Pages need to be reloaded, but, post is accomplished.
2. No notification email is received from a watched post, or from incoming PM's
3.?
4.?

Lately, when I log-in, I am amused that the 'Bots' are being counted as 'Registered Users'

well no one is maintaining the site so it is deteriorating, soon it will get to a point that it is non-functioning.

Hey Dac-
As an update- we are at the tail end of a large site migration. We have been moving to a new hosting company so the focus has been on the main site migrations (e.g. http://www.NutsVolts.com and http://www.SERVOMagazine.com) and email (gigs of data and SQL migrations are not fun!) :???: . Now that those are complete, the next step is moving the forums. :grin:

Hi Vern,
I hope the best is yet to come.
:idea: Are any new users being migrated from someplace else! :cool:
