It has been a couple of days, but site still is turning up error msgs a lot.  It happens when I click on PM button in someone's post in a thread, sometimes when I hit "submit reply", sometimes when I click while doing a search.  We have not changed anything with our computer settings or server so I just assumed this was a PBS problem.

others having this issue too?

Yes, for several days now.  I've been putting it down to the necessary changes needed for the conversion when the postal rates change, but guess it could be something else, but I'm going with postal rate changes.  Of course, if there are still problems after the rate changes, I'll have to think of some other excuse.

PBS has been working on the server hardware and some software stuff behind the scenes.  I don't know when they are supposed to be completed, but I sure hope that it is soon.

Thanks, Mary. I have not contacted the Team about this because I know they are working on it, and I am confident that the Server Errors will go away soon.

Me, too!  Lots of error messages plus my internet server is having outages.  Really making it hard to post anything or print labels.

Still having problems; I tried to "bump" two of my postings in the Book Bazaar for crochet & knitting booklets offers, and neither one moved back to page one.  Also got a PM from a member to whom I offered something in the ROAK forum, but when I clicked on it, it was blank.  Annoying glitches, hope they get fixed soon!

ETA:  I see my threads did get bumped up, though certainly wasn't immediate.  Same thing with the PM.  Checked my messages a couple times after posting, and all the sudden the PM was visible.

Same here, not able to post books right now.  Errors continue today, every other page or so.

Trying again to post this message.  Same here, unable to post books right now.  Error messages are about every other page I try to go to today.  Lots of errors yesterday too.

I'm getting lots of error messages/site crashes too, so I'm holding off on doing any of my projects or things I don't have to do.  It is even wrecking my fun, now also: Crashed again while I tried to post this message.

I posted on a thread in CMT and my post doesn't show up, though the CMT main screen shows a 'my latest' post time on it. When I searched my member name I found two blank posts supposedly in that thread but not accessible.

I've had this issue for several days and only now are people starting to post about it, so I assumed it was a problem on my end.

I am ready to start the next round in the MYSTERY/THRILLER VB, but there is NO WAY I'm going to take the chance of my posts & edits disappearing.

These last few days are the absolute worst that PBS has ever been!sad
