    Just now, using Opera, can't Save an Edited post. Just spins and spins. Finally aborted and reloaded the page, but found it had logged me out! That's a first.

    Came back in using Chrome for this post. Had trouble logging in. Timed out once. In on the third try.

    I think probably many people are having forum issues and are just not reporting it. I know that I didn't for like a week. Most if not everyone in the Tracfone section for example has mentioned it. It is intermittent so sometimes the forum is fine for a while.

    I should add that I'm am seeing the issues on the full version of the forum from a laptop using Firefox.

    Anyways, thanks for trying to figure it out.

    Is it just me or there are too many guests on the forum? Could it be some kind of bot attack?

    I've seen guest numbers that high before and it hasn't been a problem. It would take a lot more than that to bring the forum down, especially since we're protected by CloudFlare. Something else is going on, just waiting on Howard to get back to me on it.

    Yeah I use the Microsoft Edge browser primarily. I've noticed that if I go to howardforums.com the page either doesn't exist or is unavailable.

    But if I point my browser to: https://www.howardforums.com/forumdi...ier-Discussion then it takes me to the site w/o any issue.

    I've seen some posts show up multiple times. I've made posts where only the title shows up and the body is completely missing. I've also had the webpage time out after editing.

    I just spoke with Howard and we are going to be switching to a new server in a few days to alleviate this issue. Sorry for the inconvenience and your continued patience is appreciated.

    I can’t access the forums at all via the app or Tapatalk all day so far, but have no issue accessing it from my browser.

    Yes I am having the same issue.
    Maybe it is to do with switching to a new server as mentioned in post 36?

    I need my HoFo fix. ����

    having issues as well, and noticing a lot of duplicate posts for example https://howardforums.com/showthread....1-year/page117 1748, 1749, 1750, 1751,1752 are all duplicate posts, but it also looks like it was in the process of being edited or something when the first few didn't seem to post.

    Logged in using the mobile website currently.

    I can tell there's maintenance activity occurring, and things are loading faster now, butt there are a few hangs for me:

    When I log in at the first page I usually land on (...forums.php), the images of all the listed subgroups are not rendered correctly. No way I can see to post an image logged in this way. If I get to a PC I'll show you what I mean.

    Also, going to any page off the one I log in at, I lose my log in. Have to log in again. This is even when using the "Remember Me" check box.

    Haven't checked this with a desktop browser yet. Just reporting what I see so far.

    I don't know if this is related but the last few days i've been given a cloudflare "checking your browser wait 5 seconds" nearly every time i've tried to access the forum. Anything I can do to avoid that?

    It's a protective measure enabled by the admin.
