Yep, it's bad. Hit refresh 3 times just to get past the DB error to view a forum page, then 4 logins just to post a message. No wonder it's a ghost town lately.

This is with Firefox, Chrome, Opera, IE/Edge from various computers in various locations. It's systemic.

On the bright side of things, I just took a look at your gallery albums, some great stuff there!

It might be easier to use a photo hosting site like Imgur to post your pictures until the issues with SCI are resolved.

Default site issues

What is it going to take to get this site working correctly again?
It seems like it needs a complete upgrade. Is it money?
Would taking a collection work, like a donation or someting else?
database errors, login issues, staying logged in issue, posting pictures, Timeout when typing, and couple of other issues.
The buy sell thread quit working years ago.

This forum has so many Proxies that alot of us follow.
Maybe it can be seperated from Alans business so it wont change his business stuff.

Other sites work. The freeslotter forum is in german but it is really simple to post pictures. Just attach and open.

Default SCI post in news

I am well aware of the issues caused by our Hosting Company have made SCI even more difficult to post to.

After I get the Store operating correctly I will somehow fund the upgraded and repairs needed for SCI.

We tried to seperate off on different servers the 2 Sites before this issue. But that stopped my Store working and without sales there SCI will not exist.

Please see the News post, I appreciate all who can report errors. But not here, via email please with details.

I know about the multiple log in isses, Cloudflare is off, Site data tables were damaged by the server move and yes SCI needs a major overhaul.
Has for years but till now not been able to find a Company that can offer the solutions needed. Anyone with knowledge let me know off site

Thank you

Talked with support, they say it's fixed.

What's your experience?

Quite a lot of the time I'm still getting

"Database error
The database has encountered a problem.
Please try the following:

Load the page again by clicking the Refresh button in your web browser.
Open the slotcarillustrated.com home page, then try to open another page.
Click the Back button to try another link.

The slotcarillustrated.com forum technical staff have been notified of the error, though you may contact them if the problem persists.

We apologise for any inconvenience."

With Firefox, clicking the Refresh button works sometime, other times it doesn't.

It isn't fixed, it is worse than ever.

We need to crowdfund a new site not connected to Alan's businesses.

Default This site is Alan's business.

And Alan has indicated before now that he isn't interested in crowdfunding; SCI membership is free.

Not getting the "database error" (on chrome) as much the last few days so, maybe things are improving. Also working on the iPad too.

Tried to get in 6 times over the last 5 hours, it went through correctly 3 times , the other 3 times I got database errors which corrected after 1, 2 or 3 refreshes.
