Same.

 Yea, I get it too Traveler. Every time I try to post a second response in under 45 seconds. Go figure. Since I seldom have much to say it happens more times than not.

Well, not really. But it has happened.

Thanks guys. I feel better now.  ;D

I hadn't known that we had that limit. I assume its an anti-spam measure.

It is an owner problem, as far as I can tell.  We are trying to get his attention.

We can't. The forums sit in directories on a server. There is a layer of control that the Admins cannot get to - it's called a Cpanel and it's the interface to the raw guts of it all. Only the person who paid for the hosting account can get to it, and that's the only way to fix the other forum and upgrade this one.

If you want to complain you should email this guy -

http://www.marshallbrain.com/

His email is at the bottom of the page - it's no secret.

If enough people do this he may act ...

If not enough people try it, nothing will happen.

Good Luck.

Do something about it. If I can't get anyone to start another forum then at least the community can simply write an email to the guy. That doesn't cost anything. Maybe if he gets 100 emails he'll pay attention. If the community can't even do something that simple then I'm not going to feel bad for you if this place shuts down.

You can, but I have no idea whether he even read your email.

Still inaccesible (fuck you, spelling!)

You believe evolution and there is no evidence for that. Where is the fossil record of a half man half ape. I've only ever heard about it in reading.
