What browser is everyone using ?

Would be interesting to see if the problem is there/not there in certain browsers.

Also for those experiencing it, does the problem occur on all pages or only some pages, and at some times or all times ?

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I am using IE9
I have tried the site on Google chrome (as guest not signing in) and it was still the same....
When I load up the site sometimes it goes to a grey screen with nothing else on it, sometimes it has also done the same but white background
When trying to reply to a topic yesterday, I tried using the add link in the post and it would not display correct, could see all the blue parts but, but not much else or even the link box to add link in
The reply box would not allow me to use the quote either, so ended up using " " instead, while earlier on it would let me use it

Which has started me thinking, is it a glitch/error of some kind with Java etc

Dont know if any of this helps

I primarily use Internet Exploiter, but the same problem seems to arise on Firefox as well.

Before the database went offline I tried several browsers on several computers:  IE8, IE9, Chrome, Firefox (most current versions of both) and I tried it on an XP desktop, a Win7 desktop, Win7 laptop, and a Surface Pro tablet with IE9. They all had the same issue with UM, and no other sites.

All the pages loaded slowly to not at all on just UM. I wasn't having trouble with any other web sites. As of yesterday when the database came back online, all my computers are running fine with UM, no troubles at all except for one... I tried to load someones profile page and it crapped out, but it hasn't happened since so I considered that one an anomoly.

I gave up yesterday, it was near impossible to load anything but today *knock on wood* everything works perfectly.

Google Chrome, by the way. And my location is really Croatia - our peak time is probably two people on the Internet but the homing pigeon can take it.

Personally, I think someone hacked UM and tried to make selected people miserable, because it's mostly the same group of people experiencing the same problems with no apparent reason at all.  
Yes, I'm paranoid :D

You never know, one of the theories on this site might just be closer to the truth than anyone realise's, including the author of the theory

As for which one  :hmm:
