    The updates that have been at the heading of each forum are gone now, with only a re-post of rules. That's frustrating. It's like being cut off from any current info.

    We've seen some improvements, and yet some odd lockups still. I got the impression the upgrade would have been completed by now.

    Can the owner give us an idea when the upgrade VBulletin 4.1 will likely occur?
    I think It helps people to be patient if they have an idea when this will happen.

    We'd all just want to see things resolved. How about some info?
    It would be appreciated.

    No news as yet. I am sure you will be informed when another upgrade is due.

    Thank you for responding.
    We were told the site would be upgraded to VBulletin 4.1. I hope to have that addressed by the owner, if you could forward the link to her.

    It might be, it depends. These things take time and the owner does have a life outside the forum. We just have to be patient.

    Well these things can take a little time Trin. Over at my haunt it can take a while to get the bugs out and with the traffic here it is much worse. It depends on many variables and many times the web master does these things in his/her spare time.

    Yeah, I know. But the updates have been discontinued. I'm seeking general info.

    Hi, Makedde.

    For several days in a row, I could not log onto Political Forum.com.

    The system would just run and run and nothing would happen.

    Then one day, like magic, I was able to log on to Political Forum.com and respond to discussions once again.

    If this problem happens to me again, what should I do to correct it?

    Thanks,

    JC

    This forum has sucked for months.
    When I click on a link I expect to be taken to the newest unread post but it doesn't it takes me to the last post I read during the first time I read the thread, every (*)(*)(*)(*)ing time. That's bull(*)(*)(*)(*). I have to skip pages of crap to read the last page to read the new stuff hoping there isn't more than 1 page of new stuff to read so I end up missing some (*)(*)(*)(*), like replies to my highly informative postings.

    And it's also bull(*)(*)(*)(*) that you delete threads that go over 50 pages long. Sometimes it takes that many pages before it gets interesting.

    There are a lot of forums out there and they don't run this badly so why can't you learn from them and fix this (*)(*)(*)(*)?

    The only reason I keep coming back is I like a place to pound liberals heads in showing them the truth and the light. Although it's got too many muzzie lovers for my tastes.

    One more thing there is no such thing as a cuss word. Cuss words are inventions of narrow minded individuals who are trying to forbid certain thoughts by limiting the spoken word. We should be free to say what the (*)(*)(*)(*) we want when the (*)(*)(*)(*) we want to without filters on it. (*)(*)(*)(*) the kids, if they're on this forum they need to grow up.

    There is a blue arrow pointing down beside each thread title. Just click there.

    They are not deleted. They are locked with the option of creating a new thread that is a continuation.

    Give the staff some time to get their ducks in a row. From what I have seen, they have a pretty good size server and have ben making alot of improvements.

    They know what the community wants in the board and I am sure they will deliver

    The only time it works is the first time you do it after you log on. Then if start looking at other threads and repeat the same process it takes me back to the same post.

    If the owner could resume the updates, you know, just once a week, that would help.

    It you click on your username at the right it will lead you to a page that, amongst other things shoe 'Statistics'. Click on that which will lead you to 'All posts by Username'. Click on that and you have your last post in each thread that you have contributed to.

    It may be long winded but it prevents you from reading all threads from the first onward.
