Is it just me, or is everyone getting bored with this random shutdown/lack of access/can't log on stuff going on 3 or 4 times a day?

I have had/been doing some other thing so far this week and yet when I do try to come on TT won't respond, then I'll come back later and come on and it stops letting you post, locks up, then I log off and come back 4 hours later and the same thing.

Now THAT is funny Stu!!!!

now HrkDivr, The darkside is a place of good things. many, many laughs and good times. but not for the "thin-skinned". you must be strong to hang out there. but its worth the effort.

and the darkside now has a new home, thigns have been smoother than silk.

From a people standpoint, this is a great discussion forum. From a technical aspect, this is by far the worst internet site I visit. Random shutdowns, random and frequent lag, minimal software updates, and the only way to get any Admin presence and response is to post a picture of a girl in a thong.

IMHO, overall, this site should be an embarrassment to MasterCraft.

I usually get a TT Admin response if I recommend someone to answer a question for a owner up @ the big house. I have given up, in the mean time I'll just hurry up and wait!

Just my 2 cents. I notice the same lock ups and slow downs. I am not a computer guru, but I would gander it has something to do with whatever server the forum is being run from. As far as forums go, I think this one has one of the best layouts of any. Just too bad it has issues.

Yes, they have a server problem, they've had the same problem for at least a couple of years. Otherwise, this forum layout is standard vBulletin bulletin board software, but I agree the style sheet they've written is nice enough. In the meantime, this board isn't even the current version of vBulletin (and the $30 license fee gives them free upgrades). Currently, Team Talk runs version 3.5.4 and hasn't availed itself of the security patches and enhanced stability over several upgrades (current version is 3.6.9). It's nice of MasterCraft to provide the forum - but I'll bet this whole thing costs them less than what any of us spend on annual boat maintenance. Most of us value this online community and play by the many rules they've set up here. It would be nice if they'd reciprocate by giving this forum their attention for several issues other than swimsuits.

Just sayin'...

Are there more than one mod? I am a mod on several boards in my trade (portable hot tubs) and I have found that having several volunteer mods seems to take care of a lot in terms of spam and bandwidth-related slow-downs.

It also tends to give the admin more time to do updates and upgrades, not to mention that little added pressure of knowing that there are people out there giving of their time freely.

Just a thought.

We have 7 moderators and it's apparently not like that here. From what I understand, the moderators don't have much more abilities than changing toilet paper on the hanger and their hands are tied. You would think that if MC isn't going to be involved any more than they are they would give at least couple of the active mods the ability to do what they can't or won't when it comes to keeping the site clean and free of junk. And you wonder why no one wants to mod or most of the mods are sitting on their hands.:twocents:

What he devil is going on with this site. Why is no one at MC monitoring this site, reading that it's having problems and doing something about it. Click on something and the darn screensaver comes on before it responds.
Yes, MC has recieved awards for this and the home site for "looks", but they sure won't receive anything but compaints for "Performance'! Must be from the loss of bandwith from all the worthless threads, as one insider calls it!
Rant over!

I am going to let you guys in on a little secret. It is now 6:30PM. I just got back from BriEOD's Birthday Party and Welcome home party! I was conversing w/ fellow owners FACE TO FACE.

MC is shutting down the website from 11AM EST till 6PM EST on Sat and Sundays. This is a new marketing technique to get the owners out on the water vs. talking about there boats.

What an AWESOME idea...don't ya think ???

Looks like we have a site shut down most every evening around 4:30 for about 5 minutes or so. Sometimes you can get to Team Talk thru the MasterCraft home page and sometimes it's even down for a short period.
