    As Other thread was locked :)
    i messaged @erocker with a page load mem problem ( was reaching 240 mb for forum main page ) mem load problem seems resolved ( now 12 to 18 mb for forum main page )
    was this related to the Server Problem ?

    Ps Thanks for resolving problem and getting site back up

    Using the Techpowerup app on my iPod Touch Gen5. Looking at the review of the Rm650i, it locks up every time I try to use the drop down for the different pages.

    No idea, could be that it kept trying to load a resource.

    I Have no idea on that
    my thoughts were
    Site was producing errors failing to load because of serverside script errors ( the Site Crashing )
    Server resources not loading causing my Browser (firefox ) to use ever increasing amounts of mem on the tab with TPU on ( it peaked out at 250mb ) to try and load the page by contrast as i type this the page/tab load is 15mb ).

    I do Expect that this was related ( from my end ) to the Crash
    as i said earlier
    Problem seems to have resolved itself with the Server reboot
    Thanks

    Send me links whenever. I don't think we have a dedicated spam cleaner mod or anything, so just drop me a line for cleanup detail.

    Simples.... Just check out every comment posted in the last month - there is literally one spam per article, without fail - If you comment on it, they will come. All them "my friend Lori just made $100000 working from home..." shit posts.

    Before it was every so often but now it seems to be every damn time i post theres a bot that replies with spam.

    Huh, I checked some posts from today and yesterday and they were semi clean. Lemme go digging.

    EDIT: Opened every article with comments since May 4th - no spam? Perhaps it got deleted by actual Disqus staff - they're pretty slow at managing their message boards.

    fair enough, It just seems like every time i comment there, I get spammed and I see it happening when other people post too. Sorry if i've wasted your time. I know this is really an issue with Disqus - Maybe we need a better platform :p

    Is it just me or do we still get PMs and alerts from people you have on ignore? Does it take time to update in the database?

    On the front page, the panel on the right side that shows new posts, reviews, drivers, etc. seems to have been pushed down to the bottom of the page ever since the revamp.

    I get a costant issue, i dont know if its common,or has a cause that is inherant to the platform, but when im on my tablet,i cannot for the life of me,copy and paste on TPU. Even after loading the site as desktop on android.i can copy, but cannot paste in a post/thread. I can paste into the insert image,or link/media option boxes, but not into the comment field like where im typing this very message.

    The mobile device is a Samsung galaxy tab4.android 4.4.2 ,iirc "kitkat"

    I'm using Firefox all day and never seen that issue. You don't mean the right bar disappearing on narrow screens, but rather you mean it drops down below the main content ?

    Do you have any strange addons installed that might be messing with the site layout?

    Yeah, I've got 1920 width and it drops below the main content. Only add-ons I have are Adblock Plus and NoScript (though it's enabled for the site).
