I am sure many of you have noticed the serious lag time, and maybe even been kicked off the forum a few time this Monday February 8, 2016.
The people who host the forum are suffering from "adverse performance on some of our servers, and are investigating the causes".
As I said, this is a problem with the hosting service.
Many other websites housed there are also suffering similar problems.
As far as we can tell, it is NOT a problem specific to TOP Forum.
Please bear with us while they make repairs.
