Its great to have the forum back, but it would be better if we could have our pre meltdown statistics and PMs as well, it would appear that the chosen few have theirs.

That would do nicely, thank you Martin,
I wonder how many members made a donation to help with the stirling work you and the backroom boys have to do
to keep us all in order.

... I donated many, unaffordable brain cells...!

Actually, a number of Mayhemers did make donation which covered most of the costs, thanks again Gentlemen.   :-))

I seem to get most time outs @ between 12 to 1 AM here in Canada, that would be between 7 & 8 AM U/K time. I just disconnect & log back in & it works most times. I do have a lot of posts that are not mine & don't have the ones I did post. But I am sure it will all sort itself out in the end. I don;t know where my avatar came from, certainly not from me, but I kinda like it. Mick B.

Please bear in mind there are frequently over 100 users accessing this forum, which is a heck of a lot more than many others I read, with most accessing searching and dowloading content.

In my experience, 100 users is a very small number indeed ! On one forum for another interest I pursue , there are normally between 5,000 to 10,000 users on the site and it has peaked at over 12,000. For a small UK site dealing in a particular niche aspect of the same interest, there is normally five hundred on line at any one time, peaking at just under a thousand, without any problems.

There is obviously something amiss at the server end and I feel really sorry for Martin and those others helping, trying to sort all this out, as it must be highly frustrating and also very time consuming for all involved.

I know that I, like everyone else, am very grateful for the time effort and dedication put into it all as I really missed the site when it was down for a while but as we all know these 504 errors are a daily occurrence now, I'm sure Martin's blood pressure in particular will improve no end when it's sorted and he'll love being able to get out in the fresh air occasionally again.  O0

  Just post 339'd me again followed by a 504 and I'm not blaming you Martin but it's about time the Burks got it sorted.

Even if Mayhem got to the state of the Ohio from the Pedestal convoy
I'd be almost as happy as Malta was in 1942 to see it still afloat ...........
with Martin and the tech's acting as the destroyers and tugs alongside it.
