    if i try to reply to certain threads or quote, it keeps prompting me to log in, but when i do i just brings up the empty login page again. If I click the "android forums" link to go to the forum homepage it says I'm logged in. So then i go back into the thread and hit reply and it once again prompts me. So basically it NEVER lets me reply to these certain threads.
    Also I have to manually refresh each page? even if go to another website and come back it will still show the threads from before until i hit refresh. Same for posts within threads.

    anybody else experiencing these problems? I'm on my work computer but I've never had problems with the site on it before.

    Clear your cookies form the forum then start over and see if that helps.

    Yeah...hopefully this issue gets fix :(

    Since you replied, Phases, I'll just ask here...maybe you can answer my question.

    I thought that since AF got its own Web Server and DB server it shouldn't have these kind of hiccups that causes it to crash. Am I missing something? :confused:

    Would this be the reason why everything was down?

    Roze,
    Honestly I don't have enough details to answer that question publicly with full authority in what I say.

    I will try to get the answers posted here.

    I'm neck deep with stuff but short story is that both nameservers "lived" on the phandroid web server, so when that server became corrupt, all the sites went down since the nameservers were down.

    The nameservers SHOULD have been on different servers, but hey, a LOT of things should have been done. For now, that's all i can really explain. I've got to get back to fixing stuff.
