At long last Chris has made a statement about Pensioners Forum and the ongoing problems.  He is not happy that this ' forum' has been set up, poaching members from PF.   As we all know and klondike in particiular has made clear - this IS just a back up incase PF finally bit the dust.  We wouldn't be here if Chris had explained at the beginning of the problems that he ' had it in hand'   No contact at all wasn't the way to allay any fears the site might close.  So where do we go from here ? hopefully our contact details will remain on the shelf in klondike's back bedroom.   :grin:

well i havent been able to get on the last four times i tried, then after being advised...lol... i got on and read Chris's 'message' that he has now set up a back=up site for when we cannot get on to the main site... but i didnt find anything saying anything was being done to stop the lock outs... but no rights of a public reply... then i clicked on Phills Free speach thread and got an error message telling me i wasnt allowed to view that thread but when i came out it was gone...
anyone who allowed their e-mail to be used to "poach" member will be 'monitored'...is that a threat?
dont close it down yet Mark, i will certainly be spending time here...

I've just tried to get in to read Phil's thread and it's freezing again.  I agree with crabbyob, I'll be spending time here more than over there.  But at least he acknowledged the problem, instead of silence.   I didn't click on his back up site - I can't see the point of him having a back up, why doesn't he fix the original  ? :rolleyes:
crabbyob he did say " It is simply that traffic is not reaching the site. This can sometimes be caused by a faulty switch at the data centre which normally quickly comes to the attention of administrators there and is quickly resolved. As the problem is ongoing I will open a ticket myself and get them to look into it.[/b

You won't be able to read it as it's been deleted, presumably by Chris.

It was a copy of my opening post on a thread I started on this forum, https://pensioners.digitalham.co.uk/index.php/topic,76.0.html

But I added a small limerick to illustrate the Harry Miller v Humberside Police Appeal Court ruling.

Well it seems some will be getting their posts moderated now. Presumably me and Scrumpy and maybe others. Well I'll be saving him some work by not posting there again. This site will remain open so long as people post here. Perhaps if Chris had commented before on the PF performance issues this issue would never have occurred.

Something for voters to ponder. ..

I understand how Chris feels and wish he'd acknowledged our emails earlier. The site's as bad as ever today though despite his defensiveness..Sorry K, xed posts..

Cassandra

Well said Mark. You have my full support here for the future and thank you.

I've responded to Chris via the link he left to his email.
I've only spoken for myself.
I've basically said that I wouldn't have signed up to this forum if I thought the goal was competition. I asked that question when I signed up here, I was assured that it wasn't the case, I believed it then & still do.
I'm no techno so Chris's explanation of the PF works for me.....hence, I can't make suggestions on the fix.
I hope it gets sorted is all I can say.

klondike

Thanks Cass. I see Alex already started a thread on this so I'll mergee the two.

I accidentally started a thread on this then saw Alex already had so I merged mine into Alex's one.

My posts are being monitored by Chris.. I checked earlier by answering a thread.. I don't think you did anything wrong Mark.. and I was happy, as others where, to join this site.. How many will stay here is another matter..
At least we haven't been banned from the site.. and should we decide to use it is up to us..

I shall continue to use and enjoy both. All those that I spoke to about coming here were well aware it was not a site in competition with PF. What Chris chooses to believe is out of our hands.

Well it is good news for PF that Chris appears to care at all about his forum because it didn't appear to me that he did and I gave my reasons for that elsewhere so won't repeat them. What isn't such good news is that he took the time to create a backup which doesn't sound like he is expecting the current problems PF is experiencing to be fixed quickly. If they are then well and good. Did this backup forum prompt him to chase it up? Meanwhile I have duplicated the monitor I made for PF and now have one that runs against the official backup.

As you know I considered taking a break some time back because I didn't like the way posts were being deleted with no indication they had gone. That was the reason I left as fortyone. This time I think I'll take a break from general posting on PF proper as I see no reason why my posts should be moderated. I'll just participate in the word games to see how that pans out.

Hmm.. possibly not well as they all come up saying moderator approval needed. Sorry if mine come out of sequence - feel free to ignore them. Assuming Chris approves them of course. Perhaps I'll just lay off entirely.
