Forum Issue

Just wondering if anybody is experiencing problems with the forums. I can reach DT home page with no issue but clicking on any of the forums it takes up to five minutes or longer for the page to load. Also, the appearance has changed too. I've tried Firefox and IE and both encounter the same problem. Very slow to load. I can browse to any other site without a problem.

Same issue here. I'll make sure Webs knows about it, though I'm sure he's already aware of it...

Over the last 2 days, there has been a slow down when I login and post in DT (and compared to other forums, it loads a page at half the speed). This problem still persists today and would appreciate if this slow down can be looked at.

I'm getting this too, although as far as I can tell it's not just the forum.
The entire site is slow- http://www.defencetalk.com/ takes a long time to come up at all.

the emoticon problem seems to be script based

eg

smiley icon by itself doesn't consistently work

but
/grin
smiley icon followed /grin generates the emoticon

but
text
smiley icon followed text generates the emoticon

the above doesn't always display in a post but does appear in preview

Using Opera 12 Win7

I can't see any emoticons there, even if I refresh the page several times.

I can see them when generating a reply, but that's it.

I can see the smiley in that post (as in your last one), and just noticed another in a Naval forum thread.
