Well today every time I changed from one subject to the next on the main index page I had to log in again, 3 times it happened in less than 10 minutes today so could I ask that this hiccup be at least looked at, I don't mind having to re log in again just about every thread etc but it is way past a joke now and seems to be getting worse.

It started a while back and comes along just as you change subjects or threads. It seems random now more so than it was before and was reported a month or more back as well. Yes I know we cannot expect every little thing to be fixed but it might be something that is keeping some posters away from this site.

No changes on this side guys please try clearing your cache as this could be the problem.   I have looked at testing this today and no issues across Chrome and IE.

Whilst I don't have the problem, why on earth would you test on IE? My understanding is that IE is no longer supported by Microsoft, makes it unsafe to use. Anyone using IE should be encouraged to use a supported browser. It's a wonder you didn't test it on Netscape Navigator! Laughing

I’ve found that the liveries section is no longer working, and the photo competitions page is suffering from the a similar problem.

IE, talk about outmoded I use Chrome and Microsoft Edge on my computer that uses Windows 10. IE is a thing of the past.

I dunno if it is just me, but I've noticed the URL coding seems a bit screwy... Traditionally it has been

But putting that into several posts recently has resulted in the hyperlink becoming the descriptive test and the link being broken - See below:

These problems have existed for years. I've reported them before, but still nothing has been fixed. Hence my calls for all old bugs to be fixed before any new development is undertaken. I know this site is free and we can't expect perfection, but hey, why pee off your users with stupid bugs?

Yes that would be a good idea Graham4405 fix up the existing bugs etc before doing anything like developing new things to be added as some of those older bugs just might affect some of the new developments installed. What the site could really do with is a full time paid person to get rid of the backlog of bugs and niggles if possible before anything else is done. Clean up the existing website and then add what you like to build on to that.

We will not be building anything new before all the bugs are fixed.  The developer has already made a lot of changes for reliability.  The site has not been down much at all and the performance is much better.  more to come but I cannot fund this to the speed I want personally.

The site peaked at nearly 600 online users yesterday.

I am not posting a lot here but I am listening.

Would you guys be interested in a committee setup to assist in how the site is managed going forward?
