One interesting thing that I have noticed:  If you can paste a message in the box before the red line at the top of the page reaches the right margin, you will not get the database error.  I just did that in a post for the Joke of the Day.  I posted my cut and paste joke message so fast that the database error just couldn't keep up.   ;D

What sorcery is this?!?  I'm not sure what red line you mean, but this sounds like dark magic to me...

When I open a message box there is a thin red line that moves across the top of the page, from left to right, just above the black forum banner and below my Firefox browser's line of tool boxes, address and search box. Once the line reaches the right-hand side of the page the forum database (or whatever) seems to gain control of the message box.   ???  I assume that represents the progress of the complete downloading of the forum information.

Huh - I see it now.  It's a proper "thin red line" on my screen, almost invisible - and it takes mine about 1/4 to 1/2 a second to zip across the screen and disappear.  Fast internet connection?  Not compared to most people I know...

Thanks for all the comments everyone, all though we don't reply back on each post, we do keep an eye on the feedback you give.

Just to give you a quick update, we have hopefully fixed a few of the bugs over the past few weeks. In particular, special characters seemed to have been causing a few problems when posting and giving database errors, hopefully the update which we have carried out today will resolve these errors and this particular issue will have improved and posting symbols like:  "'£$%@:;#@ will become less of a problem.

Dan Hitchcock has also told me that they have invested in software fixes that should fix the photo download issues.

Since they updated the forum software I haven't had a single problem posting anything.   :)

I think they've finally cracked the posting issues. Now if they could recover the old photo gallery that would be wonderful.

The only real issue I've had has been the need to double-space replies so my sentences are actually separated when posted.
