  • Hi - We're having intermittent forum issues. Posts, alerts, and anything involving email like signing up or password changes are having problems but not for everyone or everywhere. Josh is working on it. No ETA right now. Thanks Josh - BTW this is a volunteer forum so SLA's are just best effort. Update: email alerts etc seem to be fixed. Anyone experiencing posting issues can you please put a screenshot of that in the bugs thread?
