No. 0     Original Topic:  MC dropping my log-in more often than ever before.

I know because of the dropped connection problems I should Ctrl-A Ctrl-C with every post here. But on a short mailbox reply message, I never expected to be dumped on my ear.

Almost every response I've made these past few months, I've had to log back in again, find the message I was responding to, and paste my response back in and post.

But when I forget to SAVE my message, this is the time I always get dropped and have to log back in again. Sometimes it happens within only five minutes of logging in now.

I know the old database cannot be moved to a different forum program, but perhaps it is time to consider using something like phpBB and eliminate all the problems we've had in the forums from the antiquated coding.

I can't really help you Gary. You do seem to have had more problems with this over the years than anyone else. It very seldom seems to happen with me. If I have typed a long post, (which is very seldom) I usually Ctrl-A Ctrl-C before posting.

Have you tried a different browser?

Hi Tavita

Yes, I've used several different computers and browsers.

I've also checked at my end a few times to see if I was timing myself out, simply because it did happen to me so often.

For a time, it seemed to happen if I used a computer I never used here before, so kept digging to see if some setting was causing it. But then I go for long periods of time without the problem, on the same computer.

I also know there really is nothing Randall can do about it. Tom hand-coded the site long before certain things were done in certain ways. A lot has changed since then too. The way the databases are set up, they cannot be moved to a new platform, so we are basically stuck with this one.

On the bright side. Look how many years it has worked and worked well!

In a way it's my own fault for not saving before hitting the post button. I know I get dropped often, so usually do on the forums. But have never been dropped while replying to a mailbox message before.

Have a great day, and May God Bless
