It does drive me mad, Tim. The hosting company has had problem since Monday and they still cant get them fixed. In your particular case the problem they have is Comcast - they said that they have big issues with Comcast connections, and they are working to resolve it but they dont know how long it will take. Anyhow, I already spent two last days of sweat and blood to move the site to a rock-solid hosting company owned by IBM. I just am ironing out some small things in the side code there, as it runs on a newer system and some of the older code is not compatible with it. Right now the site is still operating on the old host, but it's ready for an instant switch, once I fix the final bugs on the new server. I expect that by Monday we are switched to the new host - I will post an announcement. Until then, please bear with me.

Okay, I have completed the move of the site to a new web hosting company.

Please, guys, post how it performs for you. The old connection problems should not happen any more.

WTG Newsy ! Performing great here ... very fast display speed. The only glitch I notice is my Stats Contest Entries graph is not showing up (Foxfire/WinXP).

I also tried it on AOL IE8 browser and the site works just as well and as fastm only the graph and my avatar do not display.

Thanks for your efforts.

Thanks for the feedback, GRM!

I fixed the avatars. Will fix the stats graphs shortly.

Right now I am upgrading and fixing the image upload component, as the old one does not work on this new system.
Until I fix it no submissions/edits can be done (and no avatar uploads too). I expect to fix it within an hour.

And by the way Comcast is my ISP. Comcast Xfinity is by far the fastest connection I have ever had, I mean way, way faster so I was stunned. I generally am on a site and loaded before I finish blinking. Thanks man

Yes sir, working fast now! Don't know about submissions though, and like above, no graph on stats page.

Also on Comcast.

Hey, Hits and Bob, thanks for the feedbackies!
Submissions took half a day to fix since they basically had to be rewritten from scratch.
They are good now!

The stats graphs will be fixed next, but maybe tomorrow

The media folder section has been fixed. All uploads and deletions work there.

As for the Stats Contest Entries graphs, we are dropping them, since they don't really fit the new design of the stats pages which will be done in the next few days.

You are most welcome. Just a note that I am sure you are aware of. My Karma got knocked down around 40 points during this mess when it should have stayed at 200. I went back and checked how the loss could have occurred and a bunch of points just went missing about 4 contests back. It has come back up on it's own anyway but seems some players might not be getting the benefit of my 200 when it was around 160. I think I got it up to 183 now and you can reset it or just let it climb back up to 200 over the next 1 or 2 contests. It's no biggie to me one way or the other. Thanks mate.

Yeah, there were some karma glitches connected to the switch, sorry.
I've upped your karma to 200.

Great job Newsy ! The new Stats page is terrific now by showing contest images and being able to sort them ... much better than the old graph and text listing.

One item that has been missing that I would like to see restored is the View Leaders for ENDED contests. It is very convenient to scan this window of contest results rather than having to scroll through all the contest images.

No offense, but I prefer the graph and stats (you could click on any one you wanted to go see it), over having all the images. This new design only seems good for those that want to look at all their entries again (at one time). Everyone has their own opinions, right?

Pro Work Newsy!
Yes..I think I'm going to like this new stats page...
The SORT BY filter really makes the new design work for me.

What are the chances of getting those message input boxes to expand vertically, so one can proof read what they've just typed.

Half the lies they tell about me aren't true.
