    We know people - including us - have had trouble getting on to the site recently. Sorry for the trouble.

    We are trying to find ways to prevent this from happening.

    In the sig requests thread, I think a whole page wasn't showing up because (I hope I make sense when I say this) you know when you're on a page, for example, page 3 of a thread, you can't click on the current page number right under the last post? I was on the last page of the sig requests thread, but the last page (172) was a link. When I clicked on it, the posts on the page I was looking at before disappeared.

    It seemes the problems are mainly in the Sig requests thread..

    Yeah, this happens quite a bit--it's an SQL problem.

    In the case you get an error like that:

    1) do NOT keep refreshing the page, it just makes it worse. Go do something for a few minutes (check your email, whatever) and come back later.
    2) do NOT email Charlie (the administrator), believe me, we already know that it's happening.

    I get a message which says that there is a database problem between about 1pm and 4pm (Central African Time) every weekday. What is that about?
