Is it just me or has the broad been slow/unstable recently?
A little bit on my phone, but mostly settled down now.

The backup used to take about 15 minutes, but now takes more like 45 minutes.

I haven't been able to log in on my phone. A minor annoyance. Almost certainly from me screwing with the auto-fill settings earlier, but I thought I'd mention it.

Could this be related to the problem I've always had? I can't log in using the auto-fill settings when I click on the link in an e-mail notification (which works in every other phpBB forum I'm registered at); I always have to go to the forum index page in my browser and click the login button.

Why are certain forums (most notably Pure Star Wars) not showing up in my "Active Topics" list? I can't find any setting for it in my profile. Most every other forums shows up fine, even HoS.

Expired security certificate issues again. I've been logging onto here just fine with this fancy new tablet until this afternoon, when Google decided to be an ass about it.

Security certificate expiry confirmed, only three months since the last renewal. I thought these things were renewed annually?

Then Google is being stupid. Which is fairly typical of Google.

Not googles fault, the cert really is expired...
I do know how to spell
AniThyng is merely the name I gave to what became my favourite Baldur's Gate II mage character :P

Any chance of getting it renewed faster than last time? :roll:

No comment on problems per se, but a thought. Would it improve performance any to prune or condense some of the stickies?

For example, in Sci-Fi: 'Grand 40K Sticky', 'Idiot Master Chief Fanboys'. Halo isn't talked about very much anymore. 40K still gets a bit of circulation, but mostly it's old-schoolers here talking about it. The 40K Sticky is from... 2008. It's almost a full 10 years old. The Master Chief Wankers bit is from 2005.

The announcements about 'User Purge' and 'New Moderators' are at least a couple years old.

To be quite clear I'm not saying to get rid of all of them-- the stickies defining the purpose of each forum and setting forth rules and whatnot are still fine, obviously. Just suggesting a bit of housekeeping, mainly.

I suspect this would fall in Mike's wheelhouse though unless I'm wrong?
