Title: Forum Issue
Post by: AlbionFan on July 07, 2018, 12:33:22 PM
Question for the Moderators

Is there an issue with the PRE-SEASON FRIENDLIES FORUM? I know it was recently moved.

I’ve tried reaching it on several occasions, but only get an error message

Yep you did.

And from what I've just read I presume you posted using the tip of your nose.

Well I hope it was the tip of your nose anyway  ;D .

Problem is the hosting companys end, been happening since they did some maintenance a week or so ago, it is being monitored and if it continues we will be moving away from them.

Speaking from experience there are probably loads of companies out there hoping their air conditioning systems hold up at the moment. I wondered if that was why we disappeared this time.

From what we have been told the hosts have finally found out what their issue is so hopefully all now sorted and they can keep us up.

The problems with the site are out of westbrom.com hands, they are as frustrated as members no doubt

Until very recently the reliability of the site has been excellent.

Phew, was holding my breath and all but passed out  :D

Glad you are all back.

Can I suggest that all members buy a Ouija board for times of outage so we can communicate that way  ;D
Title: Re: Forum Issue
Post by: tommcneill on August 02, 2019, 01:19:10 PM
Yep problems with the hosting company...extremely frustrating for the admin team and the owners of the forum.

Were looking at moving to another hosting company I believe
Title: Re: Forum Issue
Post by: OldburyWBA on August 02, 2019, 01:46:45 PM
 All down to hosting company issues, they assured us it was sorted but obviously not.

Can I just say to the person who posted elsewhere that we did not just lock the thread in the main board as you stated, the Admin who locked it explained why it was locked as there are already 2 threads in the announcements forum so please ensure correct details are posted elsewhere

Just to point out yet again it's out of our hands , we run / mod this site for somebody else.
To see something 100 % wrong about us written on another Albion website by a member from here ( plus another dig ) is annoying really especially as this member is a mod himself on that site although granted there appears to be 12 members in total.
If you're going to have a pop get your facts right.

This, without question and without fear of contradiction, is the premier West Bromwich Albion forum on the internet and has the best, fairest and hardworking mods.

And when you are the best, those that envy your success and standing will take pops at you, they hardly ever reach the target let alone hit it, pathetic behaviour.

I understand that but that was days ago. There are 1,440 minutes in a day. How long does it take? The site is going to lose members if this carries on. A lot of people love westbrom.com but patience doesn't last forever. Albion is a community, this site is very much part of it. Transfer deadline coming up and site down YET AGAIN! Not good.

Mate, these guys provide us this wonderful website for free! They've said they're trying to deal with it. Moving servers isn't always an easy process if the hosts they're dealing with aren't doing there job properly - they can't just move. Very unreasonable response if you ask me.

I suggest if you have a problem then contact Glenn who along with the rest of us have jobs to do away from this forum as well as having lives.

As someone who was an admin on this site then I would have expected you to appreciate what goes on and how sometimes things are out of our control a bit more but I guess not.
