I don't find it any easier to post stuff. It was fine before.

The stuff barely works on my home computer.

Why, Bike Forums? Why?

It was one of those left handed statements from a Jersey-ite, you expect less?

Quick post now, while nobody is online and the forums seem to be actually working.

That's ok... we won't hold it against you. Too much.

New Jersey is like 'The Bog of Eternal Stench' in Labrynth, once you live there it never leaves you. From where do you think I got my acrebic attitude.

Well I live in the Delaware Valley in Ewing (Trenton area), the Delaware River itself is only a mile and a half from my door. The surrounding area of Trenton, however, is a sh**hole, with all of the gang wars and shootings and such. It has gotten so bad that my girlfriend has asked me not to ride my bike to work anymore. I work in Trenton and ride thourgh some dicey areas. But at least I have a couple of bikes and actually ride them..I have even posted pics of them .

Cheers,

Brian

Yeah, but it's STILL Jersey I've been out of Burlington County for about 7 years now and I still get the flashbacks. You couldn't pay me enough to live there again!

As a server administrator that is one of the worst things to ask. You have no idea about the problems or the complexity of the project but still offer advice. You would be good in upper management.

What I think the op is trying to get at is "if it ain't broke then don't fix it."

Although, the server certaintly seems like it needs fixing now.

Is it just me, or do the complaints most often come from posters without red stars? I recall from my time in retail that the most difficult and time consuming product sold was the stuff we gave a way for free.

I always thought that a company/store/whatever gave away stuff for free as trial to show how good a product is. If the product is good and the consumer likes it, then the customer wants (hypothetically) to buy it...but if the product is no good or doesn't work when it is free, well, you can hardly expect a person to spend money on it then. That is what everyone I know that worked in retail/owned a business told me anyway. Maybe things have changed.

I don't seem to understand what's going on here. At first, all went well on Bikeforums and I had no complaints. Recently, there was a change which brought on lengthy waits before getting to Bikeforums,
posting problems, difficulty in accessing entire boards, and even getting the ever-repetitious, "We can't find this page" and other problems.

Everything went so well before. Why, Bikeforums? Why?

Yeah, I really don't read BF anymore, a majority of the pages don't load, and I made a bunch of posts that never god added. I just check back occasionally to see if their any updates on an alleycat this weekend.

...adn I thought about upgrading, but glad i didn't spend $25 for a slow server that takes forever; a wet dream for sure

Executive level ...

It was broke actually. There were problems and speed issues that this upgrade will fix.

I'm a pretty hard core BF member. But this is getting pretty old. It's going on weeks now! It'll be interesting to see if this has any effect of forum members, in terms of numbers. I can't imagine that everyone is as patient and desperate for a life as me.

IF it is like the last time the numbers wont even get affected. Forum'ers have short memories. Once this thing is full swing, in a month people will only be praising joe for putting all the money and the last 3 weeks of his time into a worthy upgrade. Just in man hours alone (not including contractors) I would bet he has put in 80 hour weeks to get this place up and running. Plus server costs, redbull costs and loss of time with the family. All for something that costs him a fortune per month to keep up and running with little or no fiscal return.

Well we have all had the same issues and problems lately. I, for one, am willing to be patient and wait it out. When the server is working properly it gives me a failry good idea of how good it is goingto be when all of the bugs are worked out.....so....no complaints here. if I have to post the same thing more than once to get it on the boards, so be it. There are alot of worse things I have to deal with everyday.

Cheers,

Brian
