    Time for a Craps forum home page redesign?

    Something like this?

    It looks like the software gremlins may be fixed. Hope it keeps up.

    Jacob hasn’t been here since Friday, and I couldn’t access site 3 hours ago, but now it’s working. I’d like to believe the gremlins have been vanquished, but then I saw the movie. Those gremlins are nasty varmits.

    They’re back. Just had a ridiculous time just trying to reply to a post. Click about 19 times and wind up doubling up?

    I have encountered two different limited resource scenarios while trying to post a reply.
    1. Getting the message "You must wait [some number] seconds before performing that action." I believe in all cases this indicates my message actually did get posted, but to check I have had to copy my reply to the clipboard, load a different page, then come back, in order to verify that is what happened.
    2. Getting the limited resources message and clicking "Post Reply" again. Occasionally this results in a duplication, easily corrected by deleting one of the posts.
    3. Things appear to proceed normally, but on rare occasions a post still is duplicated. I delete one of the posts as in #2.

    Perhaps "easily" was a bit of an exaggeration for I have had to make multiple attempts. Still, I would say it took at most only four attempts to get through, though I did wait 20 seconds or so between them. I am not trying to make light of the problem; it can be a first class pain in the posterior, but I have developed some workarounds to mitigate it.

    I’m afraid workarounds aren’t in my toolkit. I’m just trying to survive out here in this lifeboat, floating on an iPad, but I do appreciate the life lines you throw. If it ain’t working, I just move on.

    Yep: They're back. If anyone isn't having any problems logging in or posting please let us know what browser you're using. Firefox has problems that come and go with no apparent rhyme or reason except it's seems worse later in the day.

    I can't see how it could be browser related, but for the record I'm on a desktop with Google Chrome. Having sporadic problems but only rarely have they been insurmountable. (And of course as I'm about to click "Post Reply" ...)

    Just took four try’s to put a like on your post, also using chrome. No rhyme or reason to the problem. Has to be gremlins.

    Haven't got this one for a while. Was trying to post a reply to a thread. Funny thing, though. I alternated between catching up on my unread posts in other threads and retrying to post my reply, and while I was getting this message on the reply I was able to cruise around the forum without exceeding resource limits. Can't say this is an improvement, but maybe there is still hope for a solution. (Probably should stop sniffing this stuff, eh?)

    Anyway, note the number of users online at the time; not all that many but it does give me an idea. What if Jacob forced users to log on to use the forum at all? Would this get rid of the guests and robots, which may be the resource hogs? Worth a test period IMHO, assuming the forum management software allows for it.

    I am reluctant to classify these enhanced error messages as an improvement.
