Is anyone besides me getting database error messages all the time the past few days? I have never gotten an error message on this forum ever before a few days ago. Its driving me nuts! There is one thread on the racing forum where someone is trying to share the pedigrees of her soon to be born foals and I can't read it. I am sure she thinks no one gives a crap as its now halfway down the page with no replies. I have my own thread going on the sport horse breeding forum that I am unable to get into more often than not. I have reported it once as suggested, not the 50 times I got the message though. Any ideas?
I also am getting a LOT of database errors. I am also on AOL. This has only been in the last few weeks, so for some reason, there must be compatablility issues with the AOL browser now. I will have to pay attention to see if I am getting them on my Firefox browser.
The experts sayeth that, indeed, AOL does generally have a hard time dealing with vBulletin (upon which our board is based).
The immediate solution to AOL-based problems is to use another browser to utilize the board, but if you send me a screen shot of the error message you're receiving--or at least a copy of the text of the error--I'll forward it along for further diagnostics.
I think it is caused by or at least exacerbated by AOL, I have been switching to IE when it happens and reading the threads that way. Not sure why its happening all of a sudden though, I have been reading this forum for many years without one single error message via AOL. Oh well, its not that big of a deal now that I found a way around it.
Thanks for the screen capture FHC. Here's what our tech advisors had to say:
I think that changing browsers is not the best but only solution for the AOL users who want to access the BB.
'Fairview Horse Center' user on the BB is right. When BB gets busy with a lot of users, AOL just gives up too easily.
I believe that only solution for this is using a different browser at least in the hours when BB has a lot of users online.
I wish there was a button we could tell you to push or a setting to adjust, but it looks like the best plan if you prefer using AOL, is to use it when it's working, and if the board is busy and it's not, use another browser.
