New Posting Problem

Post by c327 »

Over the last week I have noticed a new posting issue here. What happens is after typing what it is I want to say and click submit nothing happens, but when I return to the forum main page and navigate to where I was I see my post. If I keep clicking submit and nothing happens it will post multiple posting for every time I click submit.

We hate rut, but we fear change.

I understand. I will try to avoid this issue as best as I can from my end.

Hi everyone!

Our new hardware went into the data center late last week, and we're working hard to get everything set up and migrated with as little downtime as possible. That move will be to the current version of the site as it is, just on (much) better hardware.

Once that's done the next step will be a major upgrade to the forum software. In conjunction with the mod staff, we've successfully tested an upgrade to a much more current version using a clone of the existing site that went pretty well. Once we get settled in to the new hardware, that upgrade will be next.

Thanks to all of you for hanging in there while we work through these massive, time-consuming infrastructure changes.
