Update on Network54 Servers and Question to All Members...

by Pete (Login The-Universe)


The server errors that occur here from time to time seem to be due to updates being made to the Network54 server software. It appears to me that they switched back to an earlier software update and they are trying to either fix some bugs in the one we were using last week or they are trying to get the new beta edition they are testing installed.

Recently, automatic hyperlinks have not been possible, even upon reposting. Of course, you can always format them yourself...

[<] a href = "http://www.blahblahblah.com>blah blah blah</a [>]

- Without the brackets -

Anyway, I haven't heard from enough of our community to determine to wait it out with N54 or to search for a different server. I would like to read your comments. Frankly, I'm OK with using a non-threaded board, like Php vBulliten, etc. because it gives us better code posting features.

We have a couple of months before N54 renewal; so, I would like to know if most of you want to stick it out here and wait to see if N54 gets it right or make a move. Most importantly, I don't want to see the interest drop in the forum because of poor service; so please let me know what you think both in terms of what you are experiencing with the present service and if you would rather be on a different board and server at or prior to our renewal period.
