I wish somebody took time to do something about this problem. Also, I would love to see a new forum design - that would be really cool

Anything else?....a foot massage, box of little Belgian chocolates?

The site had some redesign and updating not long ago, but yeah..some Potpourri and some throw cushions wouldn't hurt.

Can't comment on the data base errors, perhaps it's that volcano.

Too much pot-pourri and you could end up making an ash out of yourself .....

I'm a moderator on a pretty big site, and see comments like this regularly. Mods do a lot of work that goes un-noticed, and with problems like this, there's usually only one or two people who can do anything about it.

Just be patient. I'm sure whoever has the ability to fix this will do so when they have time/money for it. One thing I try to tell members of the site I'm a moderator at is that real life comes first for everyone in charge, and that's the way it should be IMHO.

Not trying to step on anyones toes here... Just stating my opinion.

Yea, I get the errors alot too. It is frustrating, but the bottom line is this is a free service, so anything SC has to offer me, that's free of course , I'll take. Just saying I appreciate the work the mods and site admins do, it isn't easy!

With the amount of people who surf this site, I'm amazed I don't see more database errors. I can't imagine the cost associated with hosting this site (or any major web forum). I know it isn't much, but to provide a free service to most people is quite generous. Thanks Mods!

I really like the current design but it wouldn't hurt to have a few additional themes so you can choose your own.

Free ?!? Who said anything about this site being free ? Members receive an invoice in the mail for $100 as soon as they reach 845 posts. And another invoice at post #900.
