For the past couple of hours, I've had trouble loading the site and usually only get the Cloudfare backup page after about a solid minute. Is it just me?

Obviously, there are temporary periods of uptime.

I was hoping this was because of a software update or something, but I guess not.

I had the same experience while trying to access the site late afternoon/early evening.

We need to do an upgrade. It will require taking the board offline temporarily. I've been trying to postpone as long as possible for that reason, but maybe it's worth it to put this behind us.

I think it's worth it.

Ironically though, the board has been purring like a kitten since last night.

Is the pm system down for anybody else now? 

 

Edit: Never mind. Signed out and signed back in and now it's working fine.

Since the extended downtime a couple days ago I've been unable to mark entire folders read.  For example, if I want to mark everything in the publications & podcasts folder read I need to go in and actually click on each thread.  It doesn't seem to be an issue on sub-folders through -- i.e. I can go into the MDA and mark a given/month year read.

An update on this. The board will be upgraded overnight tomorrow night starting at 11pm EST. You can still post after 11pm, but if you do, those posts will be lost when the upgrade completes. (You will see a 'Coming Soon' page if you just go to prowrestlingonly.com.)

 

A few notes:

 

- The board will have a Shoutbox at the top of the main page! (as requested long ago)

- The new address will be https://forums.prowrestlingonly.com 

- The board will now have a Classifieds section for all of you to buy, sell, and trade original wrestling merchandise and memorabilia

Good luck!

 

Will the current address auto redirect to the new one?

 

What's a shoutbox?  (Says the apparently old man from his rocking chair)

Think of it like a live chat embedded at the top of the forum.

Got it, so its a chat feature rather than a thread.  Everyone stay away and keep your comments permanent ;)

Ideally. There's an admin setting I have to figure out there, but yes.
