Hey everyone,

I just wanted to write a quick note to apologise for the intermittent nature of BRB over the past couple of days. We've been having a number of problems with the server that the site runs on – which resulted in a number of core components of the website becoming corrupted.

In addition to this, some of the core system files of the server itself also became corrupt, precluding the ability for me or one of the other tech guys (David and regua, who are legends) to remotely log in to the machine and repairing what needed to be repaired.

Hopefully the site should be a little more stable now, but we're still doing a bit of cleaning up – so pages may take a little longer to load or there may be the occasional bit of downtime here and there.

Thanks ever so much for your patience.

-Dan & the rest of the BRB team

I been having some trouble with the site for a while 1st I couldn't log in without a google authorisation code which ive never seen before then I had to reset my password now the only way I can post in articles is by using the quote button, add post isn't woking.

 

As other ppl are still using the site it's possibly a fault my end but it's only happening to me here. Anyone got an idea of what going on?

Basically the forum software has stopped playing nicely with WordPress, the forums or people. I would more strongly word my disappointment and mistrust that just this happened to occur just as the forum software support policies changed (and also betting that support prices have shot up too) but to be fair we have never given them any money and so don't really have a leg to stand on.

We have identified some nice shiny new forum software that we plan to move to just as soon as the peeps behind the scenes have time to make sure this happens smoothly. Recent issues have forced our hand to move a little more quickly than we would have liked (as we really wanted this to happen at a similar time to some more exciting changes we have planned for BRB this year) and this has unfortunately caught us at a point that isn't really suitable for people to make the time available – but I for one will be very happy to make the change as soon as – I understand your frustrations although can almost guarantee it causes me more issues on a daily basis!

But, thanks for caring enough to mention it though! happy
