    Absolute bloody nightmare today I just cant Mod I can ban then move sometimes and thats about it.
    Keep getting the message 503 server not available.

    FOUR HOURS, it took me just to ban 4 persistent fake posters, who re register with similar user names every day.

    I have never felt so frustrated, angry and so pissed off.

    How on earth are we supposed to Mod a board like this. The spammers/fakers keep coming back
    because they know this site is an easy touch. So many have got away with it today and there is nothing I can do about them because it wont even let me change pages most of the time, same old message

    503 server not available.

    Took me over 7 attempts just to post this

    General Discussion section is being filled with ad spam lately, I tried to deal with some of it but it's hard to do anything much atm (there are still some ads in that section).

    I'm also sick of seeing bad threads created in the games section.......mostly by Vietnamese and Polish posters.............but recently there's a few spam threads being posted every few days in what looks like Russian (or a similar looking) language.

    The place is always a mess whenever I try to look around, but it's impossible to deal with all the mayhem and rubbish.

    Meh, I think I'll go back to just trying to concentrate on keeping the console games sub-section as clean as possible again.......the main games section always ends up having pages and pages of bad threads every single day.

    Same thing as yesterday. CANT MOD. It will let me ban some of them but not open a page to post in it. Same message

    503 Server not available.

    There are loads of spam and fake links and I just cant post on them or move them and it takes forever for the page to open. So the board is deterioting fast as we cant clean it up

    I tried so many times to post that message yesterday and it went through a couple of times. Today the problem continues, allows me to ban the fakes and move the threads but not post on them. The spammers and fakers are having a party. I cant do normal modding after I move stuff to the recycle bin to advise the ops where they have gone wrong. It is so frustrating. I see so many with faults and can do nothing about them.

    Same message Service not available. Hope this goes through.

    Tried both your DNS hope and the one Geo recommended. It still wont let me post on threads, so I cannot post on them to correct ops faults. When I try to open their threads it wont let me, I receive the same message below. It will let me post in reply to a pm, and hopefully on this thread in staff areas but not on the general forum.

    I can ban and move threads into garbage but that is about all. Driving me nuts cos there are many threads not posted correctly and I can do nothing about them. Receiving the same message;

    503 Service Unavailable
    The server is temporarily busy, try again later!

    No matter how many times I have tried the past couple of days I cant post or Mod correctly.

    I use OpenDNS myself.
    Been using public DNS for ages.
    It can make a huge difference with DNS issues, but all the other problems that exist on this site will not disappear until something is actually done about them.

    I haven't been here for a few days, and just look at the state of the games section (as an example).

    Meh

    All the movie sections are a mess also. This is crazy I cant even open a thread to check and deal with it. I can only post in the staff area and pms.

    Email me dead or itisjust PLEASE and help me overcome this.

    Still cant open threads or post on the open forum only in staff areas and pms. Tried lots of different DNS and nothing works

    I assume you know how to change your DNS settings now.........in your network connections, Internet protocol (TCP/IP) properties (not Microsoft TCP/IP version 6) , General tab, select "use the following DNS server addresses".

    Have you tried OpenDNS?

    Preferred DNS server: 208.67.222.222
    Alternate DNS server: 208.67.220.220

    You have probably tried some if not all of these.....

    But after changing the network settings, go to command prompt and type the following command to refresh network settings

    ** Goto Start and you can type in Command Prompt in the search box or you can go to the Accessories folder and run from there.

    C:>ipconfig /flushdns

    Well it let me post on 2 threads today out of maybe nearly 20 I tried on. It is impossible to mod on all the faulty threads with incorrect icons/fakes/spam. I will try your suggestions itisjust and thanks
