    a rather daft and not very nice comment about a member who posted a good deal of useful info into the site, re volcanoes and also the weather in Shetland. give him my regards please?

    was getting a hard time off people with his volcano thread. wasn't appreciated enough for the hard work he put into the forum.

    Not the best place to add this i know paul, but i would just like to say i think this new thread in the model area is going to be great and help those who want to know what's going on fast 9if like me

    I've raised the issue with Invision (again). We'll look to change to another chat room system if the unreliability continues.

    Same here - Paul, I think the problem might be something to do with the counter for the number of people in the chat room, it never seems to correspond with the number of people actually in there !

    It's not the counter, the chat room connects into servers at invision's hq (everything else on the forum is hosted by us), and when that error shows it's because their servers are either down or not working properly. Last night it was apparently their licencing server, prior to that it was that they were apparently having capacity problems. They tell me all has now been sorted so fingers crossed, but we'll reserve judgement on that for now...

    I'm having problems changing my profile picture - I've tried various photos over the last couple of days (that's why my picture keeps changing in case anyone's wondering) but only a small selection of those I try to upload seem to work. I've tried saving them as bmps, gifs, jpegs, pngs, and a multitude of file sizes (often very small), but to no avail. Every now and again my picture decides to change itself to a previous picture I've used as well. Any help would be gladly received! :)

    EDIT: Using Gravatar seems to work so I guess I can just do that. :D

    EDIT2: Actually, it has worked on my profile page but nowhere else :(

    EDIT3: It has changed now after a 15 minute delay. :)

    Sorry for all the smilies ;)

    The avatars cache both in your browser + on our image servers, so doing a hard refresh (ctrl+f5) will generally show the new one, if not it's worth waiting a few minutes as you've found. It'll also only work for one change per 24 hours.

    Ty, it seems like the cache on the servers takes around 15 minutes to clear / update. :)

    for Paul

    Hi paul

    Can you tell me what may be the problem please when I get this? It only occurs on this site and happens when, usually I try to switch from Community to forum, sometimes form/to other areas of the site

    I have cleared the usual suspects and it is still occurring?

    I did manage to get a Prt Scr

    Hi John,

    The computer I use at work has Internet Explorer like yours and it gives me the same message every now and then so I changed over to another browser and all was fine I'm wondering whether you should try Firefox or Google Chrome and see if it occurs on them?

    As WM says, it does look like you're using a pretty old version of ie there which unfortunately is going to be prone to issues. I suspect the problem is an ad it's struggling to load, if you can upgrade at least to the latest version of IE I think you'll find everything runs a lot smoother for you net wise.

    thanks for that I'm not over keen on either of them so maybe I'll have to soldier on

    ok Paul I'll see what mine is and if its possible to load a newer version without causing any havoc with my web pages.

    Bear in mind John, that if upgrading to a new version of IE messes up your pages for you, the likelihood is that anyone viewing your pages with the newer browsers will also not be able to view them properly.

    yes thanks Paul its really what is stopping me doing anything-I'll just have to live with it unless the web team can find a way round it.

    Have spotted this error also , am using IE9 and the home page freezes knocking the computer out for some time.

    Netweather.Tv is not responding due to a long running script is the error message that keeps coming up.

    Seems sporadic though.?

    interesting to see someone else with a similar problem, mine is IE8 and Lorenzo on IE9, glad I did not do a change to IE9.

    It's a strange one, but the fact that very few people have seen it, and the fact we can't reproduce in any version of IE makes it's hard to diagnose. I'm pretty certain it'll be an ad which isn't loading properly as there really is very little else in terms of scripts loading on the homepage. Just to confirm it is just the homepage you seen this on?

    if its any help Paul - I find if I wait for the various bits to load once I've gone to Community, touch wood, it may be slow sometimes but it has not, so far, got any of the error meassages. Does that sound as if its an ad issue?

    Yes Paul it was on the home page when the browser crashed. Everything else looks fine, I reckon one of the ads is the source of the crash.

    another massive lock up this morning when moving from community to forum. The only way, after 10 mins of this lock up, was to switch the pc off and power up again.
