Makes me so sad. :-(
I am so sorry that things have been so inconvenient for you. We know that things are not working as we had expected and are still working on the boards and will get them fixed. We are still dealing with a database issue and once it gets permanently stable then we will be able to move forward in fixing things.
What we do know is that there is a delay in the authentification process that occurs when logging in. It takes longer to log in that what most of us have grown accustomed too. If someone tries to post before fully logged in, then she will get error messages (not authorized to post, etc.) Generally if you wait until your name appears at the top of the screen then you are good to go. It does take some people a few tries before then can get complete the process.
We really to want to thank you all for sticking it out with us while we work through our problems. We want you to know that we are committed to getting this straightened out!
