Not just you. As has been mentioned, image uploading is throwing errors. Since adding art to the database involves uploading an image, db additions isn't working...mostly. There are super short windows where it'll behave normally. Maybe like a minute at most. So I've been testing it periodically as I'm able, trying to find one of those windows, and then slam as much through as i can. But yeah, that just means three or four entries a day at best. Needless to say my queue of art to add is piling up pretty significantly. But I'm trying. :?
Once that refresh happens I'll work hard to get caught up.
So it goes...

Yeah, it's been much better this morning. I was able to put two full gallery shows and a handful of other things in my queue into the DB before work, without any issues. So I'm cautiously optimistic. Still have a bunch more in my queue to put in over the coming days, but it's definitely improved. :cheers:

Yeah, I mean it's just my way of contributing where I can. If my crazy OCD tendencies can be put to positive use, then all the better. haha XD

I must say the latest, throwback, all text forum skin is not a good one.

So, would it be easier to start a new site, get the latest threads (like last 3 months) and continue to move content in in the background, over time?

I don't know how bad the back end of this site is or, if you are even trying to fix it, but it seems to me that it might be a lost cause...
