:cry: Not getting any better, is it?.

Makes it bloody difficult to 'assist' in threads where RG staff are asking for ideas/suggestions for future articles, when you cannot log in or gain entry to specific threads to answer said requests.

It seems to be getting more and more broken... a bit worrying really

Flippin joke at the moment, going down more times than ...... (must resist joke !)

The good news is their new spam filters are very good, theres very few spammers getting through. On the other side of it the forum just keeps crashing/is unavailable/is super slow so often now

Very frustrating when you can only browse half of the forum before being locked out due to sql errors :evil:

:lol: Sign of just how bad things have gotten:I.E on 360 will bring up login page, i can enter my details, but it won't let me login.

The PS3 web Browser lets me log in just fine.....

I hate myself so badly......nothing to do with forum issues though.

:lol: Just been viewing your site, saw the 'RG' thread, started reading, it was Markop.talking about forum issues/not being able to login etc, thread creation was dated Jan 06 2013.....

So over 12 months have passed and we're still getting the same issues on here....

Koopa's forum does look tempting though.......

Same here post something and get the forbidden message, can't reply to pm's, or couldn't link photo's!! Forum goes from working fine to really slow or I get the yellow screen and external error message out of nowhere that last most of the day...

Not had any problems at all...until now. And thus far only the one problem: accessing the Forum. I have been able to acces the main RG site, but too often the following message when trying to access the forum:

"
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

Can't connect to MySQL server on '54.228.183.12' (111) [2003]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.
"

Obviously, seems ok now as I am posting this. But it sure is annoying as it has happened a few times. And it doesn't differentiate between being logged in (via main site) or not at all. Harumpf!

MPM says people have had trouble signing up to my forum? if so PM me and I'll try and sort it ....... although I don't know what the problem would be. I'll ask Titch and/or Nick who are much more gubb than I

Reported 3 lots of SPAM this morning, that was just tip of the iceberg looking at posts, then could'nt log in this afternoon....

So, what ever is going on, is clearly not stopping spammers getting through, just annoying the userbase on here.
