I just tried and it said “database not available”. That could be a server error, or they’re fixing it so we can search it . . . maybe. Not sure what the cause is, but it doesn’t mean it’s completely gone, just not accessible at the minute.
Yes I’m seeing it today and it is very slow to load. Considering it’s on the same server as the new store and forum, that could just mean a lot of people on the server at the same time. High user traffic will slow any site down.
They have been doing regular updates to the server so that accounts for some of the decrease in page loading
Someone at DAZ has done something that has damaged the accessibility of the forumarchive site.
It was working fine on Tuesday. Then, for a short time it was not accessible. When it came back on line on Wednesday it was (and still is) displaying a broken link icon in the upper left corner of every page. (See the image below.)
I believe that the pages are trying to display a link that is now broken and is taking twentythree seconds to timeout. The broken link seems to be pointing to http://www.daz3d.com/images/spacer.gif
Every page on the forumarchive site now takes twentythree seconds to load!
Could you communicate to the web developers that something is still wrong, and needs attention?
And by Jove, I miss the old layout - I find myself hardly visiting the DAZ Forums any more.
They may have needed an upgrade for the store, but I rarely saw a less attractive Forum
layout than this one here…..
