^ haha, I don't think there's a fix. Pretty sure there's a self-destruct mechanism built into the code. Another Y2K problem and that was real too.

Ha. Almost a week ago (man, this site has been broken for a while) in the random posts thread:

P.S. Bets on what his 50,000th post will be? What comes after “God” (that’s why the site is acting up)?
P.S. Wish the old site was up without glitching. Can't say I really care about changing it into something "better".

My question as well. Any other places aside from Facebook groups and the "so street" forum?

Seriously what the hell is going on? I work in tech/e-commerce and all the issues this site is experiencing should take the afternoon to clear up. Hire someone, drop $500-1000 and fix it, otherwise sell it someone who can actually handle running a basic website.

More strongly worded than my previous post, but I agree with the sentiment. None of these issues should exist today. Contract a reputable party for a one-time migration to AWS, charge members a small monthly fee to cover expenses. Call it a day.

If you want to enlist some members with technical experience to look behind the curtain and make some recommendations, I’m sure folks would be willing to help.

How long has it been since a "mod" has at least given a update? That's to long. Did they take the money and run or get burned by someone?

I hold hope that it will be fixed, but the bigger issue is that members are dropping like flies now.

Also unable to send private messages to work out Sales/trades - anyone else having same problem, or is it possible that it’s on a per listing basis?

EDIT: I SEE IMAGES AGAIN....HALLELUJAH

EDIT EDIT: Images are gone again...was that a test or a mindf*ck??

My expectations are so low that multiple attempts to post are not frustrating me cos I can see a structured page with a color palette I recognize...
