    Another day, another forum glitch

    Actually, two days.
    Last night I came here and clicked on New Posts like I usually do. Interesting... there weren't any new posts since when I was here earlier in the day? No, there were new posts. They just weren't showing up as new to me. If I clicked on Active Topics I could see all kinds of... activity. So I left rather than pick my way through each thread and finding where I left off.

    Today the same thing. Nothing showing up as a new post or thread, yet there has been new posts and threads started since when I was here last night.

    But hey, at the least I'm not getting the internal server error message

    I wonder how much forums really make their owners. I've always been lead to believe short of a reddit or the like, it's mere beer money. Being this site was in play and has been bought/sold, I'd imagine that there has to be more profit taking, than actual infrastructure building. At least that's what I would believe if I were you @PAcanis with all the hardships you are having. To be honest, I surprised you are still here!

    The Canadians are out to under-service you man!


    EDIT: - PA would have "liked" this post had he had notification of it lol!!!

    The situation has been, off and on, a bit disappointing for the last few weeks. Sure hope there are cures in store.

    I've been experiencing PM issues. I'll send a message and nothing ever shows up as sent like it just disappeared down the rabbit hole.

    Yup been having the same problem on and off for weeks, and just on this site. The cause seems to be is that sometimes the "Last visit" date and time resets as soon as you open the site. So if it thinks your last visit was just a matter of seconds or minutes ago there isn't much "New" to see. And it is a pain in the butt!

    And now my New Posts are working fine again. And I did nothing (no rebooting, clearing cache, logging out and back in...)

    But I can still just about get a cup of coffee in the time it takes each page to load.
    Yes, frustrating.

    Hey there,

    I believe there was a thread about this here: https://www.defensivecarry.com/forum/...-attack-2.html
    It's an intermittent server drop that we're trying to catch every time it gets reported.

    Report problems via email, and they seem to get promptly taken care of.

    I've just come to accept that this forum gets weird from time to time (in more ways than just HW/SW). I scroll through all the posts. Wouldn't want to miss the opportunity to rag on someone about something sometime somewhere.

    The new post button is my way into all of the forums I visit. With out that I'm nothing.

    Thanks for all of your patience though all of the site quirks. The tech team is trying to get to the bottom of things and improve overall site function, but technology is just finicky sometimes since there are so many different variables involved. Please continue to let us know when things go awry and we will do our best to get it looked at.

    Cheers,

    Erik
