Oh, it's been insane for me for weeks now. Sometimes after I click the "Post Message" button, it will take seemingly forever to finally post, if it doesn't time out and give me an error page first. Earlier I was trying to post something, and it took so long I had time to go downstairs, get a drink and come back up before it finally posted! It's really been hampering my enjoyment of browsing for about the last month or so.
Aren't the DPs related to this? Sometimes I see threads that have people posting 5 or 6 times in a row, I guess they kept clicking lol? I wonder what the exact reason for the slow board could be but I'm not an IT specialist. It kinda reminds me of the time when internet connections weren't that fast
Maybe it's time to 'upgrade', both server and software?
However, I think no-one else would like the idea as many here have stated in the past they like this board's simplicity, but I feel it has to be said that it is a bit behind the times. I know of no other forum software that doesn't have post tracking for members (so they can know what threads and posts they've read!).
I think it's a monetary issue. Lukas is already spending personal money to keep this board alive, so I don't think we can expect an upgrade anytime soon unless there are some friendly benefactors out there.
However, it is obviously in his interest to keep the board working well in its current format, so I hope this particular issue gets sorted out. If it's a big financial burden to fix this problem, maybe we all can chip in.
