->> It's not just the hidden galleries. Message boards, posts, classified ads, all have some kind of problem with their communication with browser caches. It's been reported numerous times in various threads by a half dozen people.

It's not like $25 a year is expensive, but when we're all paying to be members of this site, it should work, right?

->> Debra,

That is interesting. I have a few items listed in the classifieds and in the past, I usually get a handful of emails about items, but this time I have not had any. I was just thinking that nobody was buying, but could make sense that there are some glitches that need worked out.

Thanks for mentioning this.

->> Michael--I am thinking the same thing. It's only $25 but I come here for the message board and classifieds and no one responds to classifieds and the message board has gone down hill with hardly anyone posting. I think it's time they bring SS back how it was, get some new blood to take over, or end it.

->> FYI: Some changes were made that, hopefully, will address the issues that some are reporting.

But, please note, using the 'contact us' form is the best way to report an issue and the best way to guarantee that someone will see the note.

Also, the classified email issue that Debra reported was not an issue at all. Emails are, and have always been, getting through from our end. I actually confirmed this with a few existing classifieds from various members.

->> On the front page under "In The Message Board:" I see the second thread as "Grover, Brad, Bert, et.al. Mark Loundy (12.30.15) Jason Burfield (Yesterday, 10:41 PM) 19

But when I click on the thread to see what Jason said it ends at Debra's response. I have to hit "refresh" to see Jason's reply.

When I open a new window to see "In The Message Board:" it shows Debra's response as being the most current one and not Jason's.

I think that is what a lot of users are experiencing.

->> One thing to note: the front page is a generated page so it will always be a few minutes behind the 'live' data. What you experienced there is not unexpected.

However, that same experience should not happen on the message board index page. I believe some have seen it there.

Thanks.

While I understand the generated page concept, but what we are all experiencing is unusual delay as compared to before this issue came up.

When we actually had large participation and many posts happening each hour it was more up to date than when we get one post every other day.

I contacted 5 people who posted in the classifieds via their web site contact info after not hearing back from them via the SS ads and all 5 said they never received a message. They all said they checked their SPAM folders.

This now appears to be resolved with in the threads on the message board. I'm posting this at 9:15 p.m. eastern time in the U.S. to confirm.

I can understand why the principals would not be motivated to redesign SS. At minimum, however, they should make sure that what they have still works. Particularly the areas that everyone values most. Message Board, Classifieds, Member Index are my top three.

->> Well, got a reminder email that my membership is about to expire so looks like that part of the site is working at least! This is not the first time people have put forth complaints, usually there's a group of people defending the site saying how it's only $25 so stop complaining, obviously not this go around. The owners haven't updated their own pages in years, let alone the site (though I understand why) it's a disservice to those paying to just keep collecting money for nothing. Time to either put forth a massive upgrade or take it out back and shoot it.
