First the forum tells me that I am an "active member", then when I try to chat or PM it says I am not an "active member".

What is going on here?? :?:

Also when I am logged in all news items on the main theblackvault.com page are not accessible they have a picture of a lock and say "private". Only if I am not logged in can I then see the news items.

The lock looks like this Image

Whats up with that?? :?:

Hello magnus,

It appears you never approved your account by clicking on the link that was emailed to you. I went ahead and did that for you manually. Please let me know if you have any more issues.

I did not get the activation email, I tried "resend activation" and I still did not get it, I tried "forgot password" link and I got that email tho.
It appears this forum has trouble with firefox, I am using FF20.

Thanks so much for manually activating me.

The site should work for you now. Sometimes, activation emails are sent to a spam/junk folder.

In regards to FireFox not working... can you tell me what issue you might be having?

Hi John

Everything looks like its working now, tho pretty slow at times.

I guess its more of a slowness issue than a FF issue.
Like when I sent you that PM, "compose" took a long time to load then when I hit "send" nothing happened, so I reloaded it and when out and did some painting, when I came back in it worked ok.

I mite be able to find out some info to help you.
You mind telling me the name of your web host that this site is on?


thanks
magnus

The site is definitely up, and has stayed up. You may be timing out due to the heavy traffic, but all is operational.

The server load that comes with an appearance on Coast to Coast AM is quite heavy :) So, I am pretty happy with how the server performed. The traffic was pretty incredible and actually still is.

To add to that, I have a full dedicated server. The traffic peaked and stayed steady at pushing out 10 megabits a second solid, and was RECEIVING 1.5 megabits (a full T-1 line) of JUST incoming traffic. So, to push and pull 12+ megabits a second, is a heavy load!

I appreciate the offer of help, but I guarantee, the slowness is only temporary as the onslaught of traffic dies down and gets back to a steady (but lower) amount.

Yes your C2CAM stint maybe making heavy traffic, which is good for you. :thumbup:
I did some research and found that codero is a good full dedicated server.
