Board is operational again - Sorry for the difficulty!

Postby allingeneral » Tue, 31 Dec 2019 18:55:55

I have been working on upgrading the server, and I totally broke the VGOF boards for several days. I determined the issues and believe that it is now corrected. Please let me know if you see any problems going forward.

Now let's get in the fight!

One suggestion. The webmaster or the admins need to publish an Edress that IS NOT on the same server as the forum.

I tried for a couple of days to email you through your website and the email bounced and undeliverable. I was trying to give you a heads up that posting and PMs weren't working. I was 2 or 3 days after I noticed it that the Forums down message appeared.

Your commercial website has several bugs IMHO.

Great news! I've been trying for a couple of days to touch base here, and it was like being a ghost: I could sign on and type posts, but they wouldn't come up on the board. Since I was fairly certain I wasn't dead, I was beginning to wonder if I'd been excommunicated. Nice to know the answer to that is "not yet."

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

Next Firearm:
I can always use another 1911.

I logged in, from the sticks, in N. Florida, with a dial-up, and the world's crappiest laptop, so I think you're good to go.

Whoa - I thought dial-up was dead. Are you on a 56k modem?

Thanks for the vote of confidence! :thumbsup:
