Frustrating and probably pissing some members off. They PM me and I can't answer. Only happens on OFL site. All other site I'm on are fine. Hope this gets posted. Been trying to do this for over a week. Some times it works, most times it doesn't.


I Have got to be perfectly honest, I don't think there is a problem with the site regarding posts not being submitted properly, if there were then I would have had a problem and I haven't had this title problem at all. The only time when a post doesn't get submitted properly is if I have taken too long to write and I get time out.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I've had no real difficulties for awhile but my page creation times average 2-5 seconds.

If you have trouble with pictures

a. make them smaller you do not need 4000 pixel images to post, they get re-sized in the site anyhow.

b. use photobucket or similar site and paste the image code in your post.

Frontosa.com lets you chose your personal color scheme....not sure how complicated this is to do but they do it.

as far as replying to PMs i have noticed a lag and sometimes the submit button doesn't work. we have discussed this on another thread before. this issue got worked out (for the most part) . Before there was only a problem with people using GoogleChrome browser. since the fix, i have had that issue occasionally, and again... only with googlechrome.

OFL wrote: Guys, I have absolutely no idea why occasionally the site runs slowly, I've looked into it, the hosting company have said is nothing wrong with the server. Sometimes it's perfectly okay, other times is a little bit slow, it's rather difficult to know what to do really.

As for a dark colour scheme, I'm afraid that is out of the question totally. Whereas a dark colour scheme is quite eye-catching, it's rather like winter and summer, the brightness cheers you up, makes you feel good,being in the dark can be depressing, I couldn't sit in front of a dark forum for a long time, especially at night when I'm in bed.

Sorry about the slow this occasionally, I was hoping that somebody who was either a web designer, all array good knowledge of the Internet could have got together with me so we can sort the problem out, I'll try and find out why this keeps happening. The only other option is to change servers, but that is quite a radical step and it certainly doesn't guarantee that it will improve the situation.

EDIT: if you look at the bottom it says how long it takes to create the page, it's taking about 0.3 seconds at the moment, that is quite fast

Penn, thanks for taking the time to respond here. I am sure you will get the lag issue sorted with time.

As far as the color scheme, you do bring up a good point. THis forum is a bit of a "happy" forum and shares a similar color scheme to facebook (which has proven to be very successful in its self). .. as you know, i have been lobbying for the darker color scheme for a while now. :lol: ... this last suggestion (site example) really cought my eye. I think personally I would like the darker scheme for longer periods of time spent on site, but this is a personal preference. and i wouldn't want the moral of the site to be compromised. ... thanks for looking into my suggestion.

CHeers. :cheer:

Okay guys, I want everyone to do some testing for me. I want to determine how many people have problems sending private messages. Speaking for myself, I've not had any problems whatsoever. I'm using Firefox 7.0.1 for my browser.

So if you can simply send somebody a private message and get them to return, and then vice versa we can try and figure out how many people are having problems. The people who are not having problems please tell me what browser you are using. Likewise for the people who are having problems, please state which browser you are using.

I'm quite sure that if it was a problem with the software everyone would be having a problem, that's how it normally works.

The other day I was running Chrome as I prefer that browser, and the site was slow as hell... But no issues with PM's or posting...

Hope this helps Hun..
