    One of the things I love about this place is the 'heritage' (for want of a better word); that some of our most active threads are from 2008 and that the accounts and contributions from members long inactive are still there. I especially love that even with closed accounts their comments are still there on the whole, so their contributions remain. I know we can't live in the past but the wisdom and experiments from years past still help people today, and it's a wonderful thing to be part of such an established community and see how much of it was shaped. (It is sad those first 5 years were lost, but it makes me value what we have now even more tbh.)
    That's very well said. I feel the same way.

    Yes, the heritage! Well said, Spoons! I don't do this as much anymore, but during the first year or two that I was here, I spent a lot of time reading old threads and older posts on threads that are still active. There's such a wealth of information, and besides that, it really gave me a sense of the community I was entering into.

    It loads slowly for me, no server busy messages as such, but I had a "time-out" page once, and it is super slow on the whole, loading and posting responses.

    I got database error and session time-out for a couple hours last night. It fixed itself before I went to bed and still seems fine now *fingers crossed*

    It was super slow for me the other day....but I was also having some satellite issues so I just assumed it was a "me" problem!
