Hang on, I'll log back out and see what advertising shows up :| I don't remember anything from Ford showing up here.
About two months ago Ford did a massive advertising drive and for about a week there was a questionnaire sticky, sponsored by ford, at the top of the general threads page. What made it more annoying was that it constantly showed the general thread as having new posts in the lobby due to the sponsored content.

Due to the massive amounts of non-member site traffic and the full on "in yer face" advertising that non members enjoy I'd say that this site is generating a lot more revenue than "enough to cover costs and the little or no time the admin spend making things run well"

right......

it is 16:55 GMT
I am sitting in the back room of my house, in Hull, Yorkshire, england, uk, planet earth, orbiting sol, milky way.
post number 3581 on the good deals on craigslist does not appear on the thread, but appears in the side feed of the lobby.

oh no.... wait a minute..... It has now re-appeared.

The problem seems to be the penny pinching owners who insist on using a forum provider that went south about 4 years ago. Vbulletin is shit and everyone worth their salt fucked them off years ago.

Spend some of the money we make you on maybe upgrading to a better forum provider. DTT makes this place look like a bunch of amateurs in terms of a smooth running site......

Ironic how we mock DTT content and all the while they are pissing their pants at the completely unfit for purpose vbulletin stone age abacus shit that we have to suffer.

Oh and just download tapatalk to your phone, PC's are so 2006.....
My phone is not compatible apparently.....

phone.jpg

Using sausage fingers on daft little touchscreens is not good for anyone's mental health, let alone mine......

I'll stick to using a computer with a keyboard for typing stuff and web browsing thanks.

I'll also stick to using my phone as a phone so that when someone calls me I can answer the phone at the same time as I type stuff and web browse.

I just experienced the database error. I didn't even have to right click on "show page source" to see the report info....it was already on the error page. All told, I spent about TWO WHOLE MINUTES OF MY VALUABLE TIME copying that info, and posting http://www.caferacer.net/forum/caferacer-net-team-vs-support/30513-random-database-error-here-just-now.html. The site was back as soon as I clicked back from the error page, and I had no problem posting the report.

Come on, complainers.....is this THAT hard to do?

Get a good enough one and you do both at the same time. I sometimes even have a shit while typing and talking. Modern man, me.

Hey guys,

As mentioned by WERA, if you guys experience issues like this, providing all of the info you can will help us with our investigation of the issue.
He also mentioned that this is a known issue, and we are working towards finding a fix, though it has been proven difficult.
Thanks for providing the above info pwalo.
When you see these Database errors pop up, continue to post the errors here, and provide us with the time it occurred, and the actions you took when it interrupted your viewing of the site.

Passed all of this negativity, your concerns for making this site great again, are being heard an are appreciated.
As for changing the format of the site; While VB has it's issues, it has plenty of customization and modification options.
Which help make it more friendly and open ended to provide interesting add-ons and plug-ins that add some really cool functions to the site.
Xenforo is very limited in the way of modifications and growth.

You mentioned that posts were not appearing in the feed. Can you explain what you mean by that?
Are you having trouble seeing new posts in the Active Topics section, your subscribed forums?
If you can provided examples, that would help greatly.

Understand that there is a large network of sites that we watch over, with only a handful of us that watch over them.
Let's work together to get these issues resolved.

All of your input and assistance during this is appreciated.

Richard.

I haven't been in IT for a few years, and I wasn't really good at it when I was. But, regarding the database error, maybe check back for the very first incident of the error that was reported. Then go back and see if any plug-ins, modifications, or upgrades were added to the site server or the database server, before or around that time. I can't see how a user's location or or any client side browser idiosyncrasy could be causing the issue.

If one of the mods just experienced the problem, shouldn't it be simple to just check the error logs?

Tech is checking the logs to find the cause. This is why we need you to continue reporting them, so they can see any pattern.

I know it's trying for everyone involved. We truly appreciate you taking the time to give us this information.
