Happening for the last few hours - does it have something to do with the numbers accessing the internet/Castanet?
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

Yes, that's exactly it Fancy. We're seeing a record-level amount of traffic coming to the site every day. It may be hard to tell at times, but improvements to keep things running quickly have been ongoing. Hopefully the slow downs will be eliminated very soon.

Heads up the strike though feature erases the entire post & comes up with to few characters to post.

The gremlins are alive and well this morning!

Let me see how this works. Highlighting a word or words and then using the strikethrough....

Thanks for letting me know. Yeah, it appears that a few of the custom BBCodes (s, center, left, and right) aren't working properly right now and causing the whole post to be blank. I'll add this to my to-do list and let you know once it has been fixed.

How do I add a ' like ' to a posting ?

I wish there was a ' thumbs up ' & a ' thumbs down ' under a forum posting.

Let me go check! You should have the "Like" option on all posts except your own.

Thanks for letting us know. It appears some bots were hitting our site pretty hard this morning and causing issues for at least one of our servers. Things look fine at the moment though.
