    Forum Issues

    So whats the problem with the forum "Now" over the last couple days. Click on a Post/Forum and it takes about a minute for a page to load!

    There is no problems elsewhere on the web in either IE, Chrome or Firefox browsers! I thought things were supposed to improve with this new server!

    It will probably take a minute + to post this when i hit the submit button.

    NOTE: Well it took me 3 minutes to get back here, to post this picture. Shall go elsewhere for a while. See what excuses there are when I get back!

    Here you go.PNG

    As stated in the "Poorly Forum" thread, that would be yes. Right at this minute, response is OK.

    Yes, I've had that too. You definitely get a better variety of crashes on EF.

    And now, it seems, it's attributed to the Commercial Services.

    Looks like we'll be meeting in threads like this for a while.

    Yes, I'm sure we'll have many pleasant hours together

    Talking of "pleasant hours", the hour during which the Commercial Services forum was going to be down seems to be in a little time warp ... which is probably a good thing.

    Re: Forum Issues

    The submission "thing" of waiting for an eternity to have the post accepted has another twist. I just answered a question and was prompted to submit again. This resulted in 2 entries in the thread.

    In the same forum, I got 6 emails informing me that there was a new message (the same message).

    The same thing happened here and I just backed out and the message was posted. There was this error message before I backed out:

    Do you get multiple emails only for threads in a particular forum like suggestions or water cooler or is it across all forums?

    Re: Forum Issues

    The problem seems to be intermittent but affects all forums that I visit. It might be a fluke but it seems to me that there are more problems around 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM EST. Could it be a problem of traffic to the site?

    Newdoverman,

    Are you talking about the forum being slow leading to double posts or are you talking about the subscription emails?

    Re: Forum Issues

    For me, when Excel Forum is slow and sluggish, I tend to get multiple subscription emails and trouble posting answers, but when it is fast like it is right now 10:13 Am EST everything seems to work correctly including the subscription emails.

    I will try and see what the indicated traffic is when I am on and compare it with the performance that I experience both in answering and subscription emails. If I can see a pattern in the numbers, other than the feeling I get that it is the amount of traffic, I will let you know.

    Well, that didn't take long to get blown up. I just received 9 identical subscription emails from the Excel General Forum, Conditional Formatting, Changing Colours to rows thread.

    Hope that helps.

    I dont think the multiple subscription issue is related to the forum being slow. Both are independent issues.

    Hi Arlu

    Received eight (8) of the SAME notifications of a PM time stamped 9:29 AM today. Not a big deal...but something is not right...this has to result in a demand on the Servers.

    Yes, it's slow this morning. I've replied to 2 threads and both times got the " ... wait for another 11 seconds ..." Also, those two replies have not appeared on my UserCP, or in the list of New Posts. I'm not sure if my post count has increased.

    It happens so often. Please find out what is causing it and FIX IT.

    Pete

    EDIT: Same again for this post - wait another 27 seconds

    During the past few days, I have been intermittently logged off without my logging myself off. This happens when answering a question. Is there a time limit allowing only so much time for posting an answer?

    Re: Forum Issues

    It happens if you have tabs that you left open in your browser yesterday and then you try to reply to them today. In that case, you just need to refresh your page and you can post in it, still remaining logged in. I have selected "Remember me?" while logging in, so i remain logged in.

    Re: Forum Issues

    I close all tabs at the end of a session and my browser history is deleted upon exit and at the end of a session, then my computer is powered off. I do however select "Remember Me" which seldom works. I will stop selecting "Remember Me" and see if that helps.
