Is there any remote chance of updating or possibly even using different forum software?

Web Wiz just came out with version 11 and we're on 9.69.

I'm just tired of the multitude of problems with the forum that are probably addressed in later software versions.  Just think the site could do better.

But if it's not going to happen, I won't waste time on the topic again.

It would be nice not to have problems every time we visited the forum.
What?

MMA and JMA are both on version 10.16 so it seems weird to me that PA hasn't even been upgraded to that. 

I got an error the first time I tried posting this.

If it's this that is causing all those ridiculous time-outs, error 500s and additionally logging members off in a jiffy, then it seems about the right time to upgrade. 
You all know that I'm worthless, when it comes down to these sorts of things, but I'll point Max towards this thread and see what's whatSmile

Anything that works with any hardware, software or technology designed, built or invented any time after 2010 would be fine by me.

Hi Pat

We've been trying to get a hold of Max, and I think Keishiro bumped into him over Facebook. 
From what I've been able to gather, then this is not something that can be done in a jiffy, which means that he's waiting for a free weekend to be able to make the update. I'm sorry I can't be more informative, but that's all I got atm.
Here's hopingBig smile

I'm sure it's hard to find some free time in past year(s) or so..

*sigh*

David, really appreciate your efforts in alerting Max and trying to make something happen.  Cheers.  Beer

I noticed that too, the "new posts" function has been pretty much useless today.

This is really irritating. Hell just by looking at your profile now Matt, it's as if you aren't online. That part has magically disappeared.

Edit: I was looking forward to spending some time on PA tonight, but with the way things are, I'd rather not. Too much of a hassleOuch
I'm out.

My last visit ended up with me getting logged out, so now I've tried that as well.
But the most frustrating issue I have with the software today is the fact that I keep getting time out on my posts. Some taking less than a minute to type


Aaaaand it happened again

"The form has not been submitted...."
Poetic justice? How about poetic nuisance in the arse....

^ Ditto for me on the timeouts. Sometimes I get them 3 or 5 times in a row.

I also get many 'not authorized to post here' errors and that's not even in the collab zone.
