Hi, I don't know if this is news or not but some threads have been inaccessible; the 200-400 thread in the lens gallery is the latest one.  I posted a photo and then Eldar posted something, but now clicking on it only brings up an empty page.  Any suggestions?  Anything I can do to help?

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.

I have lost hundreds, literally hundreds of posts at times. I asked the mods at the time but nobody could figure it out.

When did you post?  I check the moderation log, but see almost no moderation activity for the past week, just the usual deletion of spam posts, and not much of that.

Sometimes I try to post and the link gets cut off and the post does not go thru, I tracked it down to a issue with my home router.

Hi, it was last night. This is the thread in question, and as far as I've seen the other threads today have worked properly.

I checked the 200-400mm topic in the lens gallery, and something is definitely wrong.  I see nothing at all, so there must be some corruption in the database.  It will have to be rebuilt I think.

I'll let CR guy know about the issue, he has some support people who only take orders for things like that from him.

Ok I appreciate that, and all the time everyone behind the scenes puts into this.

If he is able, he'll do the maintenance tonight, I think he is traveling, so it might not be possible.

There are some database tools to fix indexes and lost posts, but I have never run them, and its not a good time to learn.

No worries, thanks again.

I'm back online again.  A big thunderstorm rolled thru and knocked out both my wireless provider, and then Qwest DSL.  A reboot of the radio to pickup a new IP from the wireless provider fixed that, Qwest is alive, but does not let me actually communicate over the internet.  My Router is not able to detect that (I need to change the settings to enable a watchdog), so it was not switching over to the good service.

A post quote from the “Small or Large Thumbnails – Poll” thread......
http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=22158.0

..... As an aside, am I the only one to see threads with pages which wouldn't load?  I had a look at the "we the photographers" thread and about half the pages only came up blank - no content but no 404 either.......

I found the same on the Cars cars cars (and some bikes) thread.
I tried to back up one page to 15, got a white page. Tried clicking through from page one, got as far as page 10, can't see anything between 11 and 15.

 
Just now, I went back to the cars/bikes thread, page 11 returns a blank page as does page 15 .

All other pages of that thread load fine.
I as well as others have noticed the same behavior on several threads.

Another site complaint I'd like to air regards the width of the text entry field for quick reply at the bottom of each thread page.
That field is extremely wide, no issue on desktop, most annoying on mobile.
To quantify that width, I just copy/pasted a repeating text string on alternating 'i's and 'w's (narrowest and widest) as …....iwiwiwiwiw....... until a second line began, copy pasted the result from one line into a .doc, word count shows 776 characters wide.
Um, sorry, I'm only able to describe this oddity, I'm at a loss regarding possible causes and/or solutions.

Er, a First World problem for sure, I'm delighted to live in an environment that makes it possible to bother about such things rather than having to continually worry about nut job fanatics, famine, Ebola and other human miseries.

I've turned my quick reply off in the profile settings. 
 
Drop a e-mail to CR guy and let him know.  He does not normally monitor or read every post.
