I am so glad that it's back on, but I would like a bit of an explanation why they go down in the first place.

Last Wednesday, a "Could not open socket" message.  Since they use Apache, the most common cause of this problem is the Captcha.


 


I informed the admins of the problem last week, but they only responded that it was my problem (cache) and they refused to even look into it even though I told them that I was having the problem on multiple machines and even pointed out that nobody was posting and then was nice enough to research it and provide information on what the most likely cause of the problem was....


 


Of course the admins just ignored the information and didn't even look into the problem....

I sent a message in on the "help" thing at the bottom of the page yesterday. Asked them if they were aware that the boards were down, and said it could just be me if the internet is messed up all over my town, but I doubt it. Today, they're back up. Maybe a lot of people were telling them and they finally listened. Psh, right!

I wonder how many of us sent messages using the "help" link..... and notice the admins don't even let us know what's going on. 


 


Their lack of communication is appalling.

I tried to contact Admins about the board problems, but couldn't get through.  BamBam, I heard that afew people came to the same conclusion as you did, that the catchpa's could be the underlying problem.


 


I agree that it would be very nice if the Admin/TPTB would just communicate with us members.  Or at the very least, maybe realize that most of us really do just want to help the board thrive instead of looking at us members like we're scum or worse.  :: sigh ::  A feww bad eggs/trolls ruin it for everyone else.


Anyhoo, good to see it's up and running again!  :: waves at her friends ::

If it was the Captcha, I doubt they'd want us to know because it would just provide more reason not to use it.  (Especially if it was Captcha's issue and not specifically StarTrek.Com)

I noticed today, that there are multiple very odd screen name members logged in.  All similar in oddness. 


Edit:  I see from clicking on the screen names it is the startrek spammer.

Too bad the admins aren't as focussed on the site as the spammer...

For real! If we that are here posting and talking can figure this out, why can't they?

I understand that they have several system to take care of, but this is ridiculous.  We've been having problems for too long now.  And with the lack of communication from the Admins.....


And many of us have offered to help... but the Admins absolutely refuse.

It seems that when any of us offer to help or have suggestions that are intened to help is when Admin seems to think that we are really trying to ruin the board and make them lose their job(s).  :: sigh ::  Are they really that paranoid?  Are they really that scared of us?  Like I have said, most of us really do want to help and make this site the best that it can be!  Only a few trolls want to bring the board down and that seems to be only because the trolls seem to want to show everyone that they are the 'real' power here.


Anyhoo, good to see it back for however long :: crosses fingers ::
