I figure having this could be useful in case any problems pop up. Report any forum issues here.

I'll start with one that we discovered yesterday. It looks like German IPs sometimes have trouble accessing the site. rollermonkey reported that the site was inaccessible while he was using a VPN through Germany. I can't download the webpage through a German tor exit node myself. I get a connection error. Not sure what the issue is, but just so it's out there.

This is essentially the same problem that English Metter was having earlier. Tor exit notes, proxies, and VPNs are generally blocked on our host's server. As I've said before, just drop me an e-mail with the IP addresses that you last tried connecting from, so I can request for their whitelisting.

Your server host is too strict.  Tongue I can't actually reproduce rollermonkey's error, but I'll try to compile a list of blocked IPs later.

Sure, I can try to get them whitelisted. Just be cautious that they may get blocked again.

Unfortunately, we don't get enough traffic and funds to move to a better server.

I don't know if this intentional but, whenever I do a search, the site seems to think I've just done one and tells me to try again in (x<120) seconds? Not the biggest of problems, but a bit of a pain when you're looking for a list of bands....

Likely because you just got done searching for new posts. I'll reduce that limit to less than a minute.

Oh that's probably because the "view new posts" button is technically a search.

Ah I see. That would make sense. Thanks!

Is anyone else occasionally having problems accessing the site? The past couple of days I've randomly gotten a resource loading error for a few minutes.

I've been having intermittent problems since last night.
