• Hello!

    Either you have not registered on this site yet, or you are registered but have not logged in. In either case, you will not be able to use the full functionality of this site until you have registered, and then logged in after your registration has been approved.

    Registration is FREE, so please register so you can participate instead of remaining a lurker....

    Please be certain that the location field is correctly filled out when you register. All registrations that appear to be bogus will be rejected. Which means that if your location field does NOT match the actual location of your registration IP address, then your registration will be rejected.

    Sorry about the strictness of this requirement, but it is necessary to block spammers and scammers at the door as much as possible.

Server problems - 07-30-2022

In case some of you have noticed, there is a problem on the server causing replies to existing threads, as well as new threads, to pause excessively between clicking the SUBMIT button, and the screen refreshing after the server has updated the database. Times range from 30 seconds to 60+ seconds.

In some cases you may think the SUBMIT didn't work at all, and you will click it again. Which will duplicate your reply or thread.

Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
FYI, replies and new threads ARE being posted to the site's database immediately after being submitted. It is just that the server is hanging up sending out the refreshed page back to the submitting client (you). To test this, you can submit a reply, then backpage out, then refresh your browser and you will see that your reply or thread has actually been accepted at the server and available to everyone else to view.

You DO NOT have to wait for the browser screen to refresh in order for your reply or new thread to have been posted successfully and available for viewing to the rest of the world. Just backpage, refresh the browser screen, then get on with other things you want to do.

Hopefully this will get fixed, but in the meantime, this is an effective workaround.
