I'm not sure where to post this...
I advocate for this site a lot on the FB macgregor page, always trying to steer people over here.

I have a lot of trouble with the main page of this site. Often I get a "failed to fetch" error (currently) and just as often I get a "maximum number of views exceeded" error. The active topics dont show up and the site becomes hard to navigate. I suspect we may be losing some new members to the landing page issues.

I like how the site is progressing: the core of regulars is awesome and I'm seeing more and more new handles. Maybe it's time for a holiday reminder: it looks like this resurrected site has achieved critical mass and is here to stay so maybe it's time to DONATE to keep it running.

If I had one wish, its that the main page would go back to the way it was before, with the top 10 latest topics visible instead of the last 25 posts, all of which may have been on the same topic. I know I can bookmark the "active posts" link but still.

Here's part of the problem:

That's from my cell. Currently my desktop has the "fail to fetch" error.


Here's another problem:

Oddly, I can't donate directly with my credit card. When I select Mastercard it forces me on to Paypal instead of taking a direct mastercard payment.

Agreed. The most recent posts widget is not working well. Will have to work on something better.
The "old" way was better, however, it was all custom code and components that were no longer supported by the latest version of PHP.
