I've noticed some board issues over the course of the last couple of days. There have been times when I couldn't get in due to SQL errors or the server was unreachable. I thought I'd mention it so that feedback can be given the 'big dudes' who administer the whole forum just in case they're unaware.

I don't know if Joshua can make a backup of the board himself, but if it's possible it could save a whole bunch of trouble retrieving topics and threads should the server or the forum software crashes.

Before the error notices and server inaccessibility, I'd noticed some data base issues where threads should have been marked as read, and weren't and sometimes I'd post and it would disappear as though I hadn't posted at all.

In times past on other boards, the little signs often preceded an outright software crash due to corrupt databases. I sure hope that isn't the issue, but I thought I'd mention these things just in case.

I noticed it being pissy the last couple days also. I don't know anything about the details of the hows and whys though; just glad to see it pop up again.

I blame Joshua.

:rolleyes:

Wasn't just us. The host has been having issues.

I kindda figured it was the host due to the popup warnings. I don't know what kind of control panel you have and whether or not it allows you to make backups of your forum, but if it does, it would be wise to schedule regular and incremental backups. That way, if the host goes down and can't retrieve your forum, you have the files backed up elsewhere.

I can't think of a forum I've ever been on where something like that hasn't happened. I've come to the conclusion that it's not a case of "IF", but a case of "when''.
