I'm unable to open these two threads. Anyone else have problems opening them? Thanks

ya same here but I might archive some of Phil's thread. Wow.

VW are you getting any error messages, blank pages etc?

I can open both of those threads, too, vdub, and I know I've been getting notifications on Phil's thread and probably the other, too.

Both opening fine with me vdub.

On another vBulletin board I visit they routinely cap threads at around 30 pages because they become a bit buggy.

I get a blank page, white screen, with spinning "hour glass". It will sit that way for minutes and minutes. Only those two threads at the moment, but in times past (months ago) it would happen on other threads, too. The past few months (maybe as many as 6 or 7) things have been real good.

As for the notifications, Andrew knows the problem and is working on it. (http://www.wegeners-granulomatosis.com/forum/information-new-members-signing-up/4179-emails-being-blocked-spam-filters.html) Its a matter of some notifications being rejected because of "spam lists". It's not an issue of the forum software, but still takes time and frustration to correct. My domain has occasionally been put on a blacklist. AOL seems to routinely be put on blacklists. All domains are susceptible to errantly be put on a blacklist at one time or another. In general, blacklists are good things, but they can be minor irritants at times as they are now with our notifications. If you want to learn more about blacklists, check out spamhaus (http://www.spamhaus.org/), which was one of the first and one of the largest blacklist orgs.
