    Forum problems (site down, posts not posting, etc.)

    Hi, all.

    Is it just me, and my machine, or have there been alot of issues lately with the forum not working correctly -- can't get to the forum, OR, when there, can't get posts to post (posting results in a "timeout" and and "error message" from the server), etc.?

    Just wanting to see if it's just me, or if this is a known issue.

        Thanks to those who manage the site maintenance

        I just want to thank everyone who helps with the site maintenance. This must really be a tough issue to deal with but I am glad this site has great people supporting with the maintenance.

        Keep up the good work!

          I haven't been here in a long time. Is there any update on the site "" and if they will ever return, or if they've changed name, or taken over by another entity?

            The site appears to be up and running, but there haven't been any updates to it in the last three years.

              1. In the upper right corner of the screen select "My Profile" under your username. The default profile picture will be shown in your profile page.
              2. On a computer, if you hover the mouse over the default picture, an option will show to edit avatar in the lower right corner of the image.
              3. On a phone or tablet, tap on the default picture and the option edit avatar will appear in the lower right corner of the image
              4. Click on the edit avatar button and you will be able to upload an image.
              Note that the image needs to be square before you upload it. The size will resize it if it is too large, but won't allow you to crop or otherwise edit the image.
