    Threads take forever to open

    I guess the forums are undergoing maintenance again. When I click on the link to the first unread message in a thread, the progress bar in my browser advances quickly to about 75% and stops. It takes several seconds before the thread finally opens.

    Re: Threads take forever to open

    Hopefully all the glitches will sort themselves out soon. In the meantime there is some weird stuff going on. Is there some kind of maintenance going on?

    What kind of weird stuff? (I knew you were going to ask that.) Well, stuff like starting a post and having it disappear.

    Thirty minutes for maintenance is not bad- it's an oil change.

    No maintenance was happening on the site yesterday and there were no issues with the server etc. Sounds like external network issues that you experienced.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
