    Snowthy, I've been having slight problems logging onto MC myself lately. It takes a couple efforts to get into the forum successfully, but then I get the "page cannot be displayed" message whenever I click on a thread to read. It works find now, but it took a few tries. So you are not the only one.

    I've clicked the "always remember me" option, but yeah I too get the "page cannot be displayed" message a lot, BUT for the past couple of days in addition to those, I get a disclaimer saying "an error has occurred with our database, try clicking refresh. An e-mail has been forwarded to our disbatcher" or something like that.

    It's gotta' be on your end, Snowthy, 'cause it's been workin' fine for me. :confused:

    It can't be because the error message I keep getting says it's a problem with the vBulletin server.

    I got it too, Snowthy.

    Okay, that's really weird then. The last time I got a vBulletin error message was when Phil updated the whole thing several months ago. :confused:

    It just now crashed again as I was posting a message... MC's NEVER been this bad before... do we have not enough bandwidth? Too many members? Out dated server?

    First off, it would be helpful that instead of saying the "forum crashed" that you gave a detailed explanation of what the error or problem you received is. Saying the forum crashed could mean many different things to many different people. Also what kind of browser are you using? What kind of operating system?

    Secondly, with nearly all errors on the forum, if there is a problem, I'll receive a copy of exactly what the problem is and if it is a widespread problem (that effects everyone) I'll receive hundreds of notifications. The level of notifications has been usual for me the past month. Our forum server logs also indicate with the exception of the hiccup about two weeks ago, that things have been running smoothly lately.

    This suggests that your problem may not be directly related to our server, but rather the route you take to access our site. I'd suggest whenever you have a problem that you "ping" our IP address ( This will trace the route from your computer to MC and help us to know where potential bottlenecks are along the way. Obviously, the only thing we can control in most cases is our own server, but it will at least let you know where the problem is. If it's something we can control, we'll get it fixed if at all possible.

    Well, I tried to get on just now and got another "page cannot be displayed" message.

    As for what browser I'm using, I'm using Internet Explorer; not sure about the operating system however.
