It occurs to me that this forum is a bit slow and cumbersome to use compared to other tech sites. That in itself is not that much of a problem, but it's also a bit unclear as to why this is. So i've got a few questions for you:
- The site and/or forum are down very frequently (compared to other sites). Is this due to actual capacity reasons, or is there a lot of unmanaged maintenance, is the site hosted on a personal machine running on an unstable DSL line?
- My first post needed to be reviewed before publishing. Is this just because I am new, or because the permissions system is different in SPCR article discussion (the forum where I posted), or how does this actually work? How many posts need to be reviewed before I can post on my own?
- There are a few reports in this forum of vanishing threads, replies, etc. Is this because of moderators silently doing their job, broken code, server issues or something else? In particular, about a page worth of commentary on the newest review (Gigabyte A75 FM1 motherboard - viewtopic.php?f=13&t=62690
) seems to be missing.
I'm very interested in the workings behind this forum.
