View Full Version : Is Anyone Else Having Trouble with the Website??

I noticed that I cannot perform certain tasks, such as:

Locate new posts;

Find all posts by a member (I was trying to find an old post); etc.

When I try to do these things, I get the following message:

"There seems to have been a slight problem with the NSF Forums database.
Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists.

We apologise for any inconvenience."


I noticed this a few days ago when I tried to access "new posts" but since the message states that "an e-mail has been dispatched to our techinical staff", I didn't report it - seemed redundant.

Hi Maria,

Yes, I am getting the same error too. Based on all of the problems I recently had with my User CP access (which I still have but I now have a workaround solution) and absolutely NO contact from any technical staff or moderators when I posted my problem on the forum, I wouldn't hold my breath hoping this one will get fixed anytime soon.

I just look now on the main forum page to see if there are any threads that indicate something has been posted today.

That's EXACTLY what I'm doing too - checking the main page to see if anything "looks" new - frustrating indeed!

I realized I didn't have a signature here, so tried to add it and got that same error.

I have no idea if anything I've done in those regards has worked. I hadn't checked in a long time had some PM's so replied very late but I'm not even sure those sent after I got that error for my signature.

I tried 2 diffferent ways and both times when I went to save that was the error I got.

Of course, the website went TOTALLY down for a bit on me either yesterday or today (don't remember).

EDITED: I see my signature WAS saved. WEIRD. I got the error so didn't think it was on there until I posted this & it showed up.

Yes, Becky, there is some VERY strange stuff going on with the technical side of the site.

It's been going on for a few weeks - hopefully they will eventually get it resolved.

At least it's good to know I'm not losing my mind in this area anyway. :p

Very strange...at least I can post without a problem.

I just wanted to mention that we pulled the trigger on scheduling surgery when my one daughter hit 48*.

At the time of surgery about two months later, she was at 58*. Amazing.

It looks like the forum is working great again! I can go directly to User CP, search, list new posts, etc. and the errors are gone.

So, to whoever fixed all of the problems THANK YOU!! :):):)

THeonly problem I've had the past 2 or 3 days its signed me in but as it redirected me always signed me out. THis is the first time I've been able, and something signed me out before.

It's not a miracle ... It's fixed because they finally upgraded to the latest version of vBulletin.
