Is there something going on with the server that holds forums.linuxmint.com? Recently it seems to have deteriorate massively in performance, especially evenings UK time. Sometimes it is impossible to get on, other times you have to hit refresh 5 or 6 times just to get a thread up or to post a comment.
Also, twice today I have posted a reply to someone else's thread and waited for the confirmation page so I know it has been accepted. This has duly come up correctly. 5 minutes later I have gone back to the forum to see that my reply is missing and I've had to go and stick it in there again.
I guess the biggest question is...
Is it just me?
