    For the last 4 weeks this forum has gotten progressively unstable / borderline unsable for me.

    I click links that load for 10-15 seconds and show a black page.
    I click links that load but then they show half a page (spin signal stops) as loaded.
    I try to send pms and my entire screen freezes.
    The only reason pms get through is cause I save them then try resending 3-4 times.
    Navigating this forum is like breaking the davinci code.
    For no explanation, certain forums in the sidebar don't open directly.
    But then if I navigate through a different route, like clicking "forum" then subforum, it works.
    So I'll change my user behavior. Then that stops working, and direct links work. It's crazy.
    Too often I'm closing my browser to reopen which sometimes works. It's just slowing down everything I do on here. Oh shit. I just tried to bold the word "everything" and the HTML editor is gone.
    This is EXACTLY what I mean. From the marketplace to research to pms to formatting it's made this forum virtually unusable.

    Here's something else. When my donor status ran out I told myself, "I'll renew in a few days". The ONLY issue I noticed with a bluename was somedays I couldn't connect to BHW at all. They were brief periods and for the most part everything worked fine. But afterwards, early August I go back to yellow. A week later I went to donate and the window starts seizing. For matters of principle I thought "let's see if this improves". What happened was the opposite. The problems went from happening every few days to now every day I come on here. It seems 1/3 actions I make ends in a freezing / seizing / black / half loaded window.

    I don't have any viruses. This is a safe computer. Fast connection. Most of 2014-early 2015 BHW generally worked great. With very few rare exceptions. Now, it's every day all day. The only positive thing I can say is if I close/open or refresh enough times eventually something works.

    I'm gonna try to post this thread now and count how many times it takes to win (like a slot machine)...

    Error 1 - Had to click "preview post", all formatting was changed to 1 giant block of text. Had to repaste but now the html editor is up.
    Error 2 - Came back to editor to fix a typo, edit post function froze.

    Edit - Ok, so even though it froze the edit went through. There's gotta be a way to stop this stuff from happening.

    I can only speak from my own experience and I must say that
    I have had nowhere near the problems that you are experiencing.

    - Have you tried flushing the DNS cache?

    - You might want to download, install, and run the free version of CCleaner.

    - Just for the heck of it, you might also want to download, install, and run the 30-day free trial of Hitman Pro

    - BTW, what browser are you using?

    From time to time the forum is not loading and imho is not my internet . But that happens 1 time per 2 days or so.. for some minutes.
    I personally think that there is issue with BHW DNS

    I have a few problems every now and again from phone where I post a message and it says there was no content in the message - like it loses what I wrote, but on PC I have not had any issues.

    I am using Windows 7, Opera 31.0.

    The amount of issues that you are having it does make it sound like its something your end - I would recommend running the following:

    ccleaner
    your antivirus program
    malware bytes
    adaware
    hitman pro
    defrag
    sfc /scannow

    reset your browser, clear your cache etc.

    works just fine for me even if my internet connection sucks, maybe it's from your browsers' cache

    For the past one week, I am experiencing same issues mentioned in op. At times, to post a reply or sending a pm, i have to refresh atleast 5 times.

    Page loading is stopped after certain seconds and i have to refresh again. There must be a problem with server. Most of the time, it shows "connection is reset" or "Shows error in server"

    I have cleaned cache, cookies and i have a famous antivirus and using windows 10, latest version Firefox.

    I am also thinking there must be a update, but there is no note found in any forum from admin regarding this.

    The bolded is occurring for me as well. I had an awesome, helpful reply typed out but suddenly it all disappeared and then I got the "are you sure you want to leave this page?" dialog.

    I was facing it before a fortnight but then I cleared my cache files and then it worked fine.May be thats the solution.
    Try once.
