    Well, if HTMLForums was thinking of killing of this site, then they could not have chosen
    a better version than vBulletin® Version 5.2.1 to do the job.

    The site takes longer to load today than it did fifteen years ago when I was on dial-up.

    Fifteen years ago I used to get email notifications, today I get none.

    I presume that non email notification applies to all members, because I find, more
    often than not, that new members never return to see replies to their problems.

    It is really sad for me to see the decline of this once unique forum, mainly because
    of basic technical problems that have never been seriously addressed.
    They could have chosen XenForo.

      Well, it would appear that the emails are working again. I have 55 in my mailbox!

        Explanation - When we moved to this new host, hence the forum upgrade, we are now hitting limits that our other host didn't have. htmlforums is not the only site on this new host that belongs to us. We believe another site is getting hammered and we are getting a lot of bounced emails so they suspend out account for sending any new ones. The reason we are now getting emails is because we are not suspended anymore, but it may happen again here real soon as we are hitting the bounced limit again. 40% of our emails are getting bounced, so spammers really love us

          without reliable email notification this site is pointless

          People come here with problems, don't get email notification of replies and go elsewhere for help.

          If you had a dog as sick as this site, then you would take it to the vet and have it put to sleep.

          vBulletin® Version 5.2.1 looks like vomit, does not work properly, and takes a lifetime to load.

          Take it to the vet.

              Hi there Brian,

              have you been doing some tinkering?

              Site loading and page navigation seems to have sped up considerably since my previous rant.

              There is no improvement on the email front though.

                Different plan on the host which gave us more memory and db connectivity.

                  Not much action going on, but have you seen emails flow?

                            And just to add another bug, the birthdates aren't being saved when someone joins, or they're not being filled in. The one person who joined this morning registered but the date didn't save/wasn't completed and they ended up as a COPPA user awaiting moderation.

                              Date of birth was not required so it can be empty, if they go into the COPPA group then ban them, because its disabled, meaning nothing is forcing them into that group.

                              From this point forward birthdays will be required.

                                Stone me Brian.

                                I just received my first email notification, since I don't know when, seven minutes after your above post.

                                This should not happen, is there a gremlin in the works.
