I had difficulties posting messages the other day.

Post by E1-Beard-0 » Wed Oct 30, 2019 9:01 pm

Mods, Admins,

Monday, the 28th of October and Tuesday the 29th of October, I was trying to inquire about several different matters. I lost track of how many different messages I was unable to post. In each and every instance, upon clicking submit, the board would time out.

I will note that I recently started using a VPN provider. Ever since that, logging in, page changes, and other internet related actions have been very much slower.

Today, Wednesday 30th of October, I'm not having nearly the difficulties I was having earlier, however I'm not logged in to my VPN provider.

I'm asking because I'm trying to determine where the problem might be. For instance, if it is know that the board it'self was slow, that might indicate that the issue is not wholly related to my VPN provider.

Thank you and respectfully yours, E1-Beard-0

Reason: Moved from Linux Mint Main edition to Open Chat, because the reported issue is about potentially slow forum access, not about Linux Mint

I have not had any such difficulties, or experienced slowness, at those times.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

the board, itself can be slow, at various times,
but there has been no mention of that issue, in recent days.

- - you should confine your use of an VPN service, to the specific reason,
that you chose to use that VPN service & thus not use that VPN service as an general internet access method.
- - unless you do have an specific reason, to permanently hide your actual location, of course.

and DO LOOK at those Unanswered Topics - - you may be able to answer some!.

No problems here either and I was on the board a lot Monday and Tuesday.

From your experience Wednesday it's pretty apparent that the VPN connection is quite suspect.

This board's host has a history of oddball connectivity issues. I've personally room afoul of them in the past and a VPN was not a factor.
