I know it's happened to other people, but I'm not sure if there is a fix. I think it will just start working again. But at least your friend knows he/she is not alone

    No idea. Might be a phone/ tablet issue. Can they access, say, Google or another web page?

    I haven't heard anything of this issue. Has this person tried using another device or browser? :?

    That happened to me twice yesterday. On my PC. The window tab kept saying "looking for" the forum. And the little spinning wheel along with it. One time it was for about an hour. All the other sites were fine. I thought maybe the forum was down, and checked isitdownrightnow just in case. And it showed the forum was okay.

    Tried later and it was fine. Unfortunately, that doesn't do your friend any good. :(

    Computers can be a royal PITA. :)

    I once was having issues with the forum loading (PC). But it was also happening with other sites. Then I noticed my disk light was on for an abnormally long time. Ran the utility to fix bad sectors. Found one that was being used by the browser's history. Fixed things right up.

    Have you tried using another browser? For some reason I get lots of DNS type errors on just this site with Chrome. Works fine with Firefox. Spent forever troubleshooting it to no avail, solved the issues with other sites but could never get this one to work.

    Best I could do was it corresponded with a Chrome update that disabled support for NPAPI and removed a fair amount of my plugins.

    Been a bit twitchy for me the last few days, if I open a new, fresh browser window I can get here fine but if I open a new tab on an existing window or try directing here from a page already loaded with another website, it just doesn't seem to want to connect.

    Same behaviour on 2 seperate pc's, both running Firefox

    Bumped per Mod request.

    Still having issues with the forum's response. Tried multiple browsers on multiple computers. Pages either take a very long time to load or timeout trying to load. Happens whether I reload a page, or load a new page in a new tab or in a new window.

    Other web sites are not having this problem for me.

    Please escalate to fix.

    This has been happening to me as well. Thought it might be a cookie or cache issue as it happens when I go to an already open forum page. Not always just sometimes. I generally bypass it by using my bookmark.

    Don't know if this can help anyone but I have a similar issue when I access the forum on my iPhone. Basically I have 3 different bookmarks one is game discussion one is off topic and the third is the family guy thread! Once in a while I get the same screen on one of them and I click on another and it goes through! After that I can get in to the page I could not before! This is using safari on my iPhone
