    I can't reply to some threads, pages are loading slowly (I have disabled the embedded Google Advert), background is not loading.

    May want to check the server or db.

    Edit 1: Was better 5 mins back, got worse again, and looks better now...
    Edit 2: Immediately after the first edit, background loads very slowly again...

    Anyone having this issue or is it just me?

    I find it extremely slow loading and background skin not loading. Everything is blue and white instead of brown.

    The forums look ok to me, they feel like they're a little sluggish, but I'm not sure if that's my internet connection or the forums.

    Only problem I'm having is not being able to load uo.stratics.com at all.

    Stratics won't load, and the forum is a funny colour. So glad it's not just me!

    Same for me. Connection is good and all other sites I pull up load fine and fast.

    The one time I go to use uo.stratics.com it isn't working. I was all excited about digging up that level one t-map on the island off Skara and I can't find the stupid chest.

    Oh, that's easy.

    You know that island that's just off the coast of Skara? Well, your chest is buried on that island.
    Good Luck! :D

    I can't get Firefox to even load the page so I'm using M$ IE yuck. Firefox is loading everything from www.whitehouse.gov to www.themskanks.com as fast as ever...only thin not loading in it is this site.

    Here is the error message from Firefox for what it's worth,


    Failed To Connect

    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at uo.stratics.com.




    Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.

    * Could the site be temporarily unavailable? Try again later.
    * Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer's network connection.
    * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.

    The boards and the actual Stratics web site are separate entities (as with most message boards and their parent sites). Generally a problem with one will not have any effect on the other. I have separate bookmarks in my favorites for each. One for uo.stratics.com and one for vboards.stratics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=3.

    That way I can easily access the forums easily if there's a problem with the main page. As a rule, I only usually visit the actual UO Stratics page maybe 2 to 3 times a week. I generally just go directly to the forums when I need something.
