    I'm trying to reply to someone and every time I hit post it says server error has occurred.
    or it says you must wait so many seconds
    I finally gave up, I see it's OK this morning so far

    It's not your computer, last night was unbelievable, I just talked to others and they couldn't do anything last night on the board.
    It's almost always slow , now this morning it's just slow for me
    So it's not us it's the server :cat:

    I had problems last night, Diane (between 4 and 5am UK time I think). Also had a glitch earlier on today (blank screen with just a message about a database or server error IIRC).

    Nice to meet you too, Diane. :)

    Board outages always give me the willies: my first reaction is dread that someone will have a 911 or a low-running cycle in progress and get cut off from help.

    I was thinking the same thing, I was hoping that no one needed help

    It's a rotten situation for both helper and helpee. :banghead:

    I don't know whether it has happened to you at all but sometimes the forum software hiccups when you try to post a reply to a thread (has done so for years), usually when your forum login session has timed out for some reason. I got into the habit of using 'select all' in the post text box and copying the contents of the post to the clipboard before hitting 'Post Reply'. Saved me a lot of grief and frustration on many occasions.

    The first hint of trouble I had last night was when I tried to 'Like' a post and the forum software ignored me repeatedly. I have years-long issues with chronic insomnia so my eyes were out on stalks at the time and I wasn't sure whether it was me doing something stoopid but the board went completely haywire on me shortly after that.

    Don't know about you, Jeanne, but I kinda find it oddly reassuring to find out I wasn't on my loney-o with posting problems. :)

    Thanks, Diane. It has been an ongoing issue for over 14 years. :( By-product of PTSD (plus I became agorophobic and developed OCD as additional sequelae). One never gets used to it.

    If this should happen again, please send a PM to any or all of the Moderators. The PMs sent us an email alert. We can backchannel @Robert and Echo, our webmaster. The problem, obviously is that if you can't post, you can't reach Robert through the site. We have other ways of contacting him!

    Hi everyone, I should have posted an update! Yes, we had a problem with our system the other night. After checking on it, I found it started around 11pm CST and lasted until around 7am CST. Thankfully we have a contract w/ a good company that hosts our site, and I was able to work with them to recover our data that had been corrupted. It was fairly straightforward but for a minute I was concerned!

    Apologies for the down time, it was totally unexpected.
