    That would be much better. The addon isn't that savvy, so I just de-activated it altogether.

    Forum was down again the whole night, same as two days ago. This is so annoying that when i can't sleep or do a little night shift this site is just down. This really feels like the middle age and i don't know any other forum that is crashed down at nights on a regular basis.
    Is there no solution to this? Can not someone from the US users here get involved and simply have a look over this? Because when that happens, it's about 1 or 2 at night here in Europe, so it must be early evening then in the US, there must be someone from the US who has time in the early evenings to have a look at that and press "restart" or whatever there needs to be done?! I mean, this forum is not the holy crypt of an ancient egyptian king that only one person in the whole world can have a key for and is always asleep when the shit happens here :re:
    What is the big deal, that there is no soultion for this years long regulary recurring problem that the forum is down for 7 or 8 hours every other day? I really don't get it...

    Perhaps her name is Julie Grey and she is the keeper of the red file. That is, how to restart soapchat :giggle:

    Forum very slow at the moment, takes an age to get logged in and seemingly only lets you post once, but nothing thereafter.

    There's always a freeze at 2 o'clock (midnight) but it often comes back after a few minutes.
    (but not when I'm in the middle of posting a message!:brick: )

    AM or PM ? I'm aware that it doesn't always load back up around 1am (GMT) It just needs a reboot. @Jason73 has set up an email for anyone to use if it doesn't load up. We're not always online, so anyone using this option gives us a nod that we need to check and deal with it.

    Unless anything has changed, the forum is on a shared server and whomever it's shared with is likely to be getting hits at the time things here start to fall over here.

    The cost of a dedicated server with round the clock monitoring is just not sustainable option for an ad free forum. Of course if @Ome wins the lottery he might treat everyone to one :dance:

    The site has gone down a few times at random in the past week or so, most recently about an hour ago.

    As long as it comes back up at some point though I'm good.
