Its a well known issue thats being discussed all over the board. We are working on it and may even be upgrading the forum software again soon to deal with the problems.

@ dsenette, it's not just you. The new forum software has been unexpectedly hard on our database server. We're working to optimize it.

@ computerwiz12890, I don't know of any issues. Make sure your Java is updated, and I'll look into it later tonight.

I see I can now close a topic again as I post my final reply, but it only works on the new topics.
:tazz: Just have to hold on till the old ones are gone.

Sounds like the problem. I'll update java as soon as I return to school on Monday. I'll let you know how it goes. :tazz:

You don't get the Fast Reply box, or the Add Reply button doesn't work?

It would appear the "Insert Link" button is not working properly. Is this an issue with the Forum software, or mine??

I press 'add reply' and the clock starts ticking. Then, the button loses his function and the screen stays like it is, like I'm still replying. But the reply is posted...

Also, when I try to get to a topic sometimes (70% of the time) the topic will not open. I have to click multiple times to get there

We're still tweaking. It's getting better, and should continue to improve.

I upgraded Java to the latest, like you suggested Admin. Now whenever I try to go to Live Chat, Internet Explorer exits. It just exits, no message, no nothing.

Any idea why?

Thanks for working on the issues. I can open topics more easy now. The posting issue happens less often, but it's still there every now and then.
