Subscriptions Not Working and VIFV is SO SLOOOWWWWWW!

I can not subscribe to anything. When I go My Account > Subscriptions > Categories and tick a forum item my browser (Safari on an iMac) goes into virtual meltdown for 90 seconds and then, when it has recovered and I click Save, nothing changes.

Would it not be easier and less resource hungry to just have the option to subscribe to a specific subject within a category by clicking on a 'Subscribe' button on that subject?

Generally the web site is painfully slow to act on clicks but once it starts it is fine. It's like the up loading is 20 times slower than normal but downloading is normal.

Whatever happened recently to this forum software, the reaction times have improved dramatically, AND the edit function is back! Thanks David or whoever that was for fixing this :-)

Yes, I've been waiting to post something to verify the fix was working. But, yes, I finally found fixes for these two long-running issues.

Re: Subscriptions Not Working and VIFV is SO SLOOOWWWWWW!

I have not been on since last Sept, but it is still slow in general. Loading a page takes so long that I load other websites and read them before this one is up.

Is it still as slow as back then ? Just curious as I would love to be able to research more but the slowness is just killing me

Well, from my side it is actually quite fast today, possibly due to my full DSL bandwidth being available at this time of the evening :-)

Re: Subscriptions Not Working and VIFV is SO SLOOOWWWWWW!

For me, the site now works better than it did at my original post - I think the 'WebMaster' tinkered with it about 6 months back. I have only about 2Mbps connection and it takes about 5 seconds or so before anything starts happening after clicking on a link. This is not the case with other sites. After that it loads pages with similar alacrity to other sites. Hope that helps. MW

Re: Subscriptions Not Working and VIFV is SO SLOOOWWWWWW!

I should mention that posting a reply DOES take forever. I got to about 40 seconds waiting for my last reply to get uploaded (the progress bar gets so far and just stops) and gave up and got on with something else... Clearly something is still adrift. MW

Re: Subscriptions Not Working and VIFV is SO SLOOOWWWWWW!

I tried posting this message in the Controllers segment a couple of days ago and it has not appeared:

"There were a few electric scooters auctioned at the local university that were abandoned by students who graduated and went home to out of State residence. My daughter put a bid on a eMoto G2 and won it. Needs some work; probably charge the batteries and no ignition key. Does this model have a security type key that communicates with the processor?"

When I open a page, I get this message:

"You are not allowed to post new content in the forum"

What does that mean?

New users can post replies, but a moderator has to approve them. This can take up to a day. Once you have posted successfully a few times then your replies and new posts will go up immediately without need for approval.

Re: Subscriptions Not Working and VIFV is SO SLOOOWWWWWW!

Hi to everyone,

I joined this forum a fair while ago after purchasing a 2007 Vectrix VX1 and wanting to find out more about it.

Since joining the forum, I have spent countless hours reading numerous interesting threads on here but until now I have managed to restrain myself from cluttering the forum with what I consider to be unnecessary replies to posts.

Unfortunately, as a new member I have no option, as it appears this is the only way that I can convince the moderators that I am not an automated spamming machine.
Hopefully I will soon be able to post something a bit more appropriate and worthwhile.

I had also wondered what the "You are not allowed to post new content in the forum" was all about, but at least I now know why I am unable to start a new topic.

I look forward to spending time on this "V is for Vectrix" forum finding the answers to my questions.

Alan

Re: Subscriptions Not Working and VIFV is SO SLOOOWWWWWW!

Hi Everyone,

I'm in the same boat as BIKEMAD.

I bought a Vectrix VX-1 to fix up and it looks like V is for Voltage is where all the Vectrix owners hang out. HOWEVER, the forum runs SUPER SLOW for me, whichever browser or computer I use. As a new member, I can't start a thread either, which means I just have to find somewhere to start posting messages.

Administrator, what does it take to bump me up to being able to post a new thread? I couldn't find an FAQ anywhere listing some common questions like that.

I really do just want to start a "build blog" thead in the Vectrix forum on here. Thank you in advance!

-Ben

PS: I also couldn't find an "Introduce Yourself" or "New Members" thread. Something like that would be nice to new members to be able to reply to and introduce themselves.

Re: Subscriptions Not Working and VIFV is SO SLOOOWWWWWW!

I am really fed up with shabby performance of this site. Over 4 years. I log in several times a year. Sometimes it works. I got to subscriptions, that grand long page, deleted my Current motors subscription, checked onto Zero-S-X thread, because that is what I ride now. Went to bottom and click SAVE. Comes up with no changes. Four times. Just won't register the changes. Useless I guess. AND NO WAY TO CONTACT ANYONE WHO CAES! No wonder its having a tough time staying above water.

Re: Subscriptions Not Working and VIFV is SO SLOOOWWWWWW!

Ever since Dave's tweaks late last year, this forum is running quite quickly working excellently. I haven't tried any subscriptions, and I'm note sure why anyone would need a subscription anyway, considering that this is not a heavily-visited forum.

The Site seems to work fine for me too.
