    The forum wouldn't connect for about 20 minutes just a while ago. Time out error message every time I tried to load a page.

    The page keeps glitching every time you go to a different page. It flashes the top bar for "read new Naruto chapter" down before it finishes loading.

    ^ Noticing the same thing just today. I use Opera 11, and each page I load, when it loads a particular number of elements, the page glitches and sort of freezes.

    My mouse scrolling doesn't work, all the links don't work and testing BleachAnime.org forums, I didn't suffer the same problem so there's a particular thing on a new page that makes it glitch until the page is fully loaded which takes 2-3 minutes. Unacceptable on 10 megabit connection and I know my speed is still blistering because I used a speed tester, downloaded a file in my browser and ran a torrent. All of them achieve speeds of half a meg to 1.5 meg per second.

    And I got Avast with Firewall and have run my browser as the sole program to cut off interference.

    Anybody know what's going on?

    I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the top bar for the the Manga reader. Now it's more active with the "Like/Tweet It" button, plus the read button, so I think it's a webdesign problem. It also pushes my browser page down when I try to "go to next unread post", making me miss the first part of the post and I have to scroll back up. It's more annoying than anything.

    Kenpachi TZ, try clearing the browser's cache if you haven't yet.

    There is something off with the bar, it does seen to stretch before going back in Firefox and Opera. On the other hand there is no problem with the bar in Chrome. Which browser are you using?

    Would you be willing to download Firefox Nightly, an experimental version of Firefox, to test if the problem still exists for you in Nightly? I don't have to, in Nightly, scroll up to read the first part of the post so it's possible that Nightly will fix that problem for you.



    If that doesn't fix it then try getting the NoScript extension along with the Adblock Plus extension if you don't have them.

    Hmm, I cleared my cache just now just in case but the problem's been rectified before I did that. I'm guessing it's that coupled with my being stonewalled by the Great Firewall of China (as you can see, I'm in Shanghai) as that element of the page has to be blocked while the rest of the page loads.

    It's never been a problem before, but if it's significantly more active, probably has to block more connections or such. But that much be pretty significant activity if 10 megabit doesn't breeze through it. I don't know, I ain't tech-savvy with web shtuffz. >.<

    It seems to disappear when I have set up my proxy software into Opera (and those elements of FB/Twitter load without a problem since China ain't blocking me), but sometimes rears its annoying head when I turn my proxy off.

    .... I'll keep going with my proxy (as I get more smilies with it and the photobucket pics ain't blocked), but any ideas what the root of the problem is with the further info?

    No idea, Mbxx will probably fix it sometime in the next twenty years assuming that NF doesn't close before then.

    I'm struggling to see how this is a problem. Whatever technology you're using to access the forum: smartphone, console, computer, touchpad, whatever; has a clock on it.

    Or does this actually affect something here? o_O If you're talking about post times, I like it. Feels like time travel when my clock is half an hour ahead. :p

    While we're on this topic: If any of you have the beta, use Tools->Web_Developer->Inspect and click on the 3D button. Tilt the site around and the insane amount of nesting for the +1 and like buttons are glaring.

    I installed and put facebook.com in the blacklist. Can't exactly block google.com but it sure has sped things up again.

    .... Well, I think that just makes stuff confusing. My proxy allows the Google Plus and FB stuff, and it speeds up. When I go back to getting trolled by the Great Firewall of China (thus auto-blocking both elements), the page glitches and I need to go make a sandwhich or something each time I load a page to keep busy. o_O

    Whoever has access to the server hosting aka Cpanel needs to adjust the time settings which then will reflect onto the forums.

    Or ask the mysterious men working the kinks in Germany to fix it aka calling the hosting company.

    Not a big problem for me since I don't care for time on anything (since it just fly's by cause I'm always busy) but for everyone else this issue should have been fixed by now.

    You know...I haven't seen a spambot thread/post in ages. :rotfl

    A lot of the time when I go to click to go to the last page of a thread, it will actually take me to a few pages before it. Been happening a lot recently, it used to never happen.

    Yeah i've noticed a good 30 minute time difference too, but more recently i've noticed that i'm having trouble with embedded yt videos. i can click play but i cannot stop the playing no matter how many times i click pause and then the mouse key gets frozen and won't do anything for a while.

    My connection's been screwed with and it's slower than normal and seems unstable.

    Seems more like a problem on your end, have you tried switching to another browser to see if the problem exists there as well?

    Letting a server problem that can be fixed in under five minutes reflects poorly on the server admin.

    Oh my. Time to hack the forum?

    Wherever the server may be, lets hope it has a UI and uses either Windows Server or Linux/UNIX. That way we can see shit just in case if someone like me would go blind from the 400TB worth of Hentai that's kept on 3/10 of the servers.

    But the real question is, which server is the forum hosted on? :datass

    Apparently it is an nginx server and is vulnerable to XSS attack in admincp log panel. I'm thinking of leaving Mbxx a nice little image there. :maybe

    My eyeballs cringe at the time now that everyone keeps mentioning it.

    DO IT, I triple dare you. :maybe

    If you can be Super Admin without having someone edit the config file to access them logs, you win. :datass
