  • News Regarding The Site Forum - Please List Problems Here

    Due to high volume on the site, Mike is going to have to switch servers and upgrade the forum software. That is what has been causing the site issues the last few days. This is being worked on and hopefully everything will be back to normal within the next 2 days. Thanks everyone for being patient and supporting our site. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Well thank you for letting us know Kerwin

    At least we now know it is due to the site growing and we all can live with that.
    Still collecting Frank Thomas in any uni and HoFer G/U & Auto's.

    I do not trade nor buy at "eBay values", unless a card is so rare that it is unlisted.

          Great News!! Glad it is usage issues and not lack thereof.... where it is moving too fast from having no other users on the site would be a different problem entirely.....

          Do you anticipate any downtime for the switch?

          Thanks,

          SGC

              Can everyone please list their issues here for me? We are having issues isolating the problem for the forum so any and all help would be appreciated.

              Thanks!

                Forum problems - list them here

                Sorry for the technical difficulties everyone. Because of the massive growth of the website we are encountering a lot of unforeseen issues. The good news is we are officially the most visited sports card site in the world now! As a result a chain of servers may be necessary to run things in the near future. As part of this growth, we will be making some very cool additions to the side, and more tightly integrating the forum with the rest of the site. But first let's get back to fixing the issues at hand.

                We have made several upgrades which seem to have taken care of the site crashes and fixed the other parts of the site. We are trying to figure out why the forum is still experiencing these strange glitches. Please post all your issues here on this thread as this is where the IT guys will be looking in order to troubleshoot the problem.

                Thanks for your patience and I promise we'll get things back up and running as soon as we possibly can.

                Thanks

                Mike

                  Sure!…

                  Half the time, even while logged in, the site doesn't show you as logged in.

                  Posts seem to disappear… they don't, but they look like they do. Any time you navigate to a new forum or thread, things will look the same as they did the last time you were on the page. The only way to get any updates is to use the refresh button… after every single click…

                  This refresh problem also makes trades seem to disappear, and makes it hard to read private messages / accept trades. In regards to this, trades and PM's send multiple notifications, even after having been read.

                  The server often times out, requiring me to actually completely exit out of Safari and / or Firefox, then attempt to log back in to the forums.

                  If anyone can think of anything I am leaving out, place feel free to add… haha

                      Common issues members are reporting:

                      Have to hit refresh when logging on, and on every page in order for new posts/threads to show up.

                      When deleting a PM, some members are getting this message. "Your submission could not be processed because the token has expired."

                      Looks like something is wrong with the site cookies and cached items. It is not reloading and refreshing for everyone.

                            Brett are you still having trouble seeing the mod forums?

                            I just checked your permissions and they look fine.
