  1. was wondering who messed up the racedepartment?
    was on last night at about 8pm GMT and all was as normal and working fine, i switch on this morning and sign in to find what i think is a new skin applied and the site practically impossible to navigate round( buttons missing etc). took me ages to get into the forum and keep having to use the back buttons to get back to main index from threads, not good when you just want a quick look.
    Please could someone give the person resposible a good whack round the back of the head and tell them to sort it out cheers.
  2. Same here, it's almost imposible for me to read the homepage.

    If they change it again, I'm gone!

    I suspect we were "mid-upgrade" when you/we encountered these issues (I was seeing the same as you lot), but it looks like the navigation stuff is back now.

    Please do the following:

    - if you see a broken style please logout and log back in or clear cookies etc

    Currently switching the forum to our WIP style for testing purposes. Default one seems to be broken for some reason.

    Please note that this one might have some issues as its not fully compatible with the current software version we run. At least it should be readable again with a messed up frontpage.
  7. Thanks Bram, you saved my day.

  11. Still some odd things. Going down to a "subforum" (like the Simracing Team Challenge) I miss the navigation menus.

    Yeah, Dave was doing an update and something went wrong, so custom styles in subforums are broken. Apologies for the inconvenience, it should hopefully be fixed soon :)

    Yesterday i had to rapidly disable all the forum features that require extra resources. For those of you that were online today saw how many visitors were only.

    Server was almost smoking :) When things settle down a little all those things will be enabled again mesa :)
  15. OK, understood, thank You, Bram! keep up the good work
  16. Really struggling here last few days, its like being back on a 14.4 modem again, hope its sorted soon.

    We all do.

    See it like this: normally we are a shoe size 8 with a footsize 8. Currently RD is a footsize 12 trying to fit in the same small shoe and that doesnt work.

    I hope to have news soon about a new awesome server that we are negotiating that fits our new jumbo status better.
