• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting

    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

Forum Website Running Slowly

Hi ArkRoyal ArkRoyal

Apologies if you are already aware, but the forum website seems to be running very slowly (well it is for me) at present.

I also appear to be getting frequent timeouts.


I appreciate the forum is free, so this is not a rant, just a message to make you aware.

Hi ArkRoyal ArkRoyal

Site appears to have slowed down again and had two more timeouts.

It’s late so don’t expect you to be able to do anything at this time of night.

I hope the web hosts can improve their service, if the issues are at the server side!

Thanks for your efforts

It's almost at every page turn.
I've noticed there haven't been many posters on here recently - perhaps they've given up.

Got this just trying to post this......

Oops! We ran into some problems.

Guys no one is more frustrated than me, but I can do no more than report the issue to the hosts as that is where where the problem is.

Obviously the long term answer is to move hosts but that is not something that can be done in five minutes. I am paying for a service that we are not getting at the moment and until I get some time to look into new hosting I am afraid we are stuck with what we have got. To be fair the hosts have been pretty good over the years but right now the service is very poor.

So apologies to all but please bear with whilst I try to sort something out.
