That just doesn't work, for me at least. So I am faced with trying sometimes dozens of times to get around it until I can. Then the site works fine for a few minutes, then back to the "Cloudflare" interstitial and the game
begins again. This is extremely annoying and has only begun happening in the past couple of days. The reason for discussing it is so that the admins can realise that this feature is not actually functioning properly and is just preventing ordinary use of the site for some of us. Why would you have a problem with that? Allow me to suggest a burns ward for your gizzard.
Actually, my rant wasn't directed to the actual complaints about specific problems like you have. I have made some complaints to the mods a couple of times about specifics, including the login issue. I suspect many of the issues are either device specific or browser specific but that is a hard one to figure out sometimes.
If it becomes so hard to post and/or read that it is too much trouble than more and more people will leave for greener pastures. I may be one of the lucky ones in that I have had only a few issues with posting
, e.g. when I spend a little too much time putting together a post and it gets deleted with no draft
save. I have been truly PO'd about that.
But not to the extent to flame the forum overall. May be for you that's the case. I personally appreciate what I get out of the forum far more than I hate the technical glitches that pop up at times. I have made, and will continue to make, known serious problems with the system. If I could no longer login that would be a done deal.
I don't have as much patience for some posts though. I love my boat but at times I want to sink her in her slip or out in the ocean. It ain't a perfect world. Of course Apple sets the bar for perfection as we all know who have had their devices/software.
So, Muckle Flugga, you weren't included in "guys" plural in my post. Apologies if you misconstrued it that way.
