I have been trying to get to this site for the last half an hour.

In that 30 minutes I must have seen FIFTY Error Messages.

I started with gr au.... then tried gr za, and I'm here on gr uk.

Ridiculous situation.

Yes, I do housekeeping, so don't ask the same GR techy questions.

:-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P :-P

I'll be copying this message, just in case I get another Error Message and have to start all over again :-P

What's going on?

I signed OUT of GR za........... but I'm still logged in.

I signed OUT of GR uk.............but I'm still logged in.

Funny (not very) thing is.......... No Error Messages :-P


LadyScozz Report 9 Apr 2012 09:54

Any suggestions? How can I sign out?

I've signed out from THREE GR sites - au uk & za

and I'm still signed in to au & za

Not good.

Things must be bad with GR because in the past I haven't had the same trouble with the site as everyone else.

Now I read a post and when I try to exit the post to read another I get the error message.

When I tried changing boards I get the error message. :-( :-(

I just cleaned out the cookies and rebooted............seems to have worked. I usually clear the cookies on Friday, maybe I picked up a something dodgie since Friday? I call them GRemlins.

I don't understand why I was still signed in when I signed out! There must be some very nasty bugs in this system :-P

Imagine using a public computer. Signing out......... and the next person decides to have some "fun" because you're still signed in!

I'm starting to mumble the Error Message in my sleep :-D :-\

If you're on FB you could try posting on there. You normally get a reply there

Constant error messages no matter what I click on.
Things are just going from bad to worse on this site.

Good ere iInnit.?
5 more error messages before I get on this afternoon.
Posted on Glitterbaby´s Error thread this morning. Now get error message when I try to open it. Error message on error thread???
It doesn´t get much more farcical.
Mind you, it is a bank holiday.

It all started going sideways about 4 am this morning .... that's when people started complaining about more Error messages than usual.

I usually use ................ get a lot of Error messages, but nothing like what happened at about 5 am this morning.

I went to ....... perfect!!!!

Tried opening (from Bookmarks on Firefox) about 40-45 minutes ago.

Immediate Error

so I went to from Bookmarks on Firefox ..... opened immediately

and still working well.

It is of course now about 8:15 pm on Easter Monday, the last day of a 4 day holiday.

There seem to have been NO responses from GR on this site and none on FB ......... where there are loads of complaints.

It looks as though there have been no staff around for the whole 4 days.

:-| :-| :-| :-| :-P
