If service is poor, vote with your feet!

I've been told at the smf forum to ask the hosts if they could move our site to a different server rig. This will be the next step.
If they are unwilling to do this, we might just have to find a completely new webhost.

Agh, so much trouble...

Not being able to reproduce the error "on demand" is indeed a major hassle to debug it :( 

Must have been on that "restart" - something that didn't stay "right".. Though I find it odd that only works sometimes. I HATE those. I mean.. GAH.

Good morning dear Friends  :wave:

I succeeded yesterday to post an entire story and I am delighted to confirm that the few error messages I received while doing so certainly did not keep me from delivering the presentation of the Victorian custom figures  :cham:

Now I got that inconsistency..

Was posting on trading post, got the 500 error... Went back to the Trading Post board.. last post there was not mine.. (I had copied the reply before hitting "post", of course)  Went to the topic again, intending to post the reply again..

But when I opened it, my reply was there..

In the main page it doesn't appear either on the board, but it is listed on the "last posts". I wonder if it will disappear?

 ???

Every time I want to log in on the forum the last 3 to 4 days, everytime I have to retry because I get that stupid error .
When I then finally succeed to log in and click on "new unread posts", the result = 0 but there certainly are (a few) new threads and new posts  >:(

Well, I must have tried most posts I did now 3 or 4 times.

Dang it!  And I have no idea how to track it down, since it appears to be so random :(

I started to get used to it and I don’t bother about it anymore.

Doesn't really bother me if I am browsing... If I am posting, it does.  Fortunately, I copy the text for the PROCESS here - and I try to remember to copy before hitting "post". If I didn't, I don't think I'd be up/able to write the thing twice.. right?

Well, it appears that when I have the error after posting something and I press “refresh”, my post is posted ;-) . I don’t know if it works for everyone, but for me it does. And if you’re in doubt, just press “go back” (when the error appears) and all the text you wrote is still there, but again, this works for me.

It actually just happened with my last post here and look, it’s posted (after I pressed the refresh button)
