    The New Server for Bike Forums Sucks

    Anyone else being told "Server too busy...please try again later" over and over again?

    I guess it means I really do need to get off of here and to work. Improvements for this server have yet to materialize and it just continues to seem slower and worse than before.

    Thank you, Voltman. I agree this should be here so perhaps those in power will take a peek. Guys, this forum is really just problem after problem. What's going on?

    I don't know, but it's been slow for me, too. I've moved this to Forum Suggestions & User Assistance, as it seems to be the place where the tech guys check for user reported problems. Don't take that as a sign to stop reporting your difficulties, though.

    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    Yeah, this is strange. Thanks for pointing it out, guys. I'll make sure the tech guys see it.

    As for the kidnapping, well... I don't think you'd get much for ransom, unfortunately.

    Same problem here. I didn't mind the outages as much when this was a mom & pop operation (I gave money because it was, in fact). Now it just kind of sucks.

    Bikeforums.net is slow due to the SoCal wildfires.

    Trust me there were plenty of problems when this was a "mom and pop" organization. Overall, i am suprised to say that there have been fewer since the sale. But I also must say that there is a problem since the recent server migration.

    +1 - it's sucked all day long.

    Numerous "Server too busy" messages, slow page loads, errors when trying to post, etc.

    we could just all move to cyclingforums.com and take the place over...just a thought...

    here's what it said when I logged in over there today..

    +1...it really sucks today.

    As a BF advertiser and forum participant, this sucks!!

    A heads-up from BF tech support acknowledging the problem, and an estimate on when it will be fixed would be appreciated.

    Everything seems to be working at good speed for me except that I don't see a good many of the Avatars. Not a complaint mind you, just an observation.
