Possible PC Advisor Website Problem?

Is anyone else having problems with the PCA website over the past few days, or is it just me?.

The other day (possible Friday)it was server overload and site error plus 'waiting for' delays.

This morning trying to send posts are resulting in redirection to 'site error', with 'waiting for' delays.

I have even had a post that I have tried posting to, that repeated site error messages, and when it eventually took the post, a previous person and myself who had just managed to post, appeared to have no usernames attached (just envelope), but the originator of the post had theirs.

I am not having any problems with other websites. Using Google Chrome.

The same as applied with this posting, no originator or username, just figure and envelope, but the post did go straight through without delays.

It seems to be the "weekend wobbles" following the spam attack yesterday. In addition to the effects that you have noticed I cannot get into My Posts although I can get into My Profile. No doubt that when The Team get into work tomorrow they will sort it out. I am using IE 10 with Win 8.

Just noticed that it posted without a name but it was sent by Chub_tor.

Same here, I cannot now get into 'My Posts' due to 404 error message "Sorry! We can't find the page you were looking for".

I'll tick this as resolved, the previous poster as answered the question.

Something isn't right - the server appears to have stopped adding usernames to posts. Nothing I can do about that now, but if it's still happening in the morning we'll sort it out.

Meanwhile, apologies all round.

Perhaps we'll just have to sign our forum names at the bottom until it is resolved.

Good idea QuizMan, I thought at first that it was just me, though I did 'Notify FE' thinking it might have been something else.
