I would like to echo what Bianca said.  Please eliminate the stuff that was added to the bottom of each page.  It serves no practical purpose and is a big distraction.

Europa,


Tonight was probably the worst it's ever been.  From 7 pm (Eastern) on I have only been able to
post a small fraction of what I usually do in the same amount of time.  It has been really an agoniz-
ing wait between frames.

Qoais was complaining in her thread that her post had disappeared.

God(dess), I hope nothing goes wrong.  I'd really hate to lose some stuff I really put a lot of research
in, like the Astrology section.  The rest I posted is child's play compared to that one.

Hugs,
b

Bianca, what interent browser are you using, do you know?

The "go" button is beneath the body of the messages, currently, it should look like this:

=>Messages    go

See it?

No on both questions.

Server is like Earthlink, Verizon etc., right?

If so, Verizon.

By GO, do you mean the arrow?

Sure!  There you have it, using that should be able to make moving around easier, you can get to any forum really quickly.

I made some fine tuning in the forum and got rid of some stuff, hopefully it works better tomorrow!

The problems that happened during the afternoon weren't related to the widgets, though.  We seem to have some sever problems at mid-day when it is busiest and have for months. 

All the best,

Europa

It's working a lot better, Europa.

In case you didn't read me above,

My server is Verizon.

Europa,


I have been busy since my last post above, which youdidn't read, BTW.

Things were going fine, then they went back the way they were.  Before I got too
panicky, I realized that you had just ADDED some stuff to the BOTTOM  of the page.

THAT'S BEEN THE TROUBLE.

Take it off, that's what's slowing things down.

Hi Europa,

Thank you for removing at least some of the fluff at the bottom.  There was a marked improvement in the speed!!!

P.S.  I finally found the "Go" button.  As I explained earlier, it does help in my situation, but at least I know it's there.  Wink

Good morning!

Boy, I was afraid to log on this morning.  Right after my post at 12:58 am, I 'lost' you
and wasn't able to access AO anymore.  So I went to bed....

I see some of the 'stuff' on the bottom is gone.  I am going to post some and I'll let you
know how the new set up holds up.

At last!  I was sweating bullets this morning as I couldn't access at all.  Kept getting a notice that Service was Unavailable!

I don't know anything about how forums work on-line but would it help if we all cleaned out our mail boxes?

Hi all!

The server had a power failure last night, which is why the forum was down for so many hours. It has also been down for part of the morning, too!  I don't know what's going on, but it has nothing to do with mailboxes or what's on the front page of the forum.

Bianca, the server is sort of like a computer that this forum (and hundreds of other forums for SMF) sit on, which is manned by the owner and founder of the website.  We have nothing to do with the server, can't see it, can't monkey around with it when it is screwed up and simply have to wait for the techs to take care of any issues with it. Lately, it has been VERY tempermental and has been screwing up a lot. That has been a BIG cause for concern. 

As for the widgets, we paired down all but the ones that we really need - BBC & National Geographic, so hopefully the forum page loads a bit faster. The only way to make the page load quickly all the time would be to cut down on the number of forums on the page, which were are loathe to do cause a lot of them have been requested by people and are added to pretty regularly. 

We are probably going to open another Atlantis forum pretty soon so you have a place to post when this one is down. It looks like it will be a neccessity! We will post the address here when it's available, which will be in a day or two. Other than that, I guess the only thing to do is be patient, people.   

Have a good day, all!  And sorry about the problems!  It has been frustrating to us, too!

Thanks Brooke,

Now, at least, I won't keep driving the people at Dell crazy anymore.

I thought all this time that something was wrong with MY computer.....

Hugs,

Sorry about the problems, everyone, it seems that one of the other forums on this server was "hacked" and has caused all sorts of slowdowns for other forums on the same server, like ours. Techs worked on the problem last night and will continue to work on it until it is righted.
