Otto, that is a complaint, not a question!! :D

Yeah, I noticed that as well today. Eventhough I have a new 20mbit connection (and everything else is fast as fuck) Psynews is slow like hell today :( I think its some heavy traffic going on again on the server, and that it will be back tomorrow to normal.

Mars can confirm (or not) :)

Sorry, I edited it. ;) The slowness has been going on for at least a week for me.

Really, It only started last night for me (Before the Switch to the new ISP). :( I have noticed a bug in the new firefox 3 though, I have to click the "View New Posts" twice to get it loading... or it is a IPB bug... hard to tell really.

Sometimes psynews shows the topics that ive just posted in as 'new'. This even happens after i select the option to mark forum as read. It's happens to random threads, some of which I've read their last post or am the last to post in are marked as if there are new unread posts. I guess it's an IPB bug?

Oh and, the slowness has been hapenning to me aswell, it started about 4-5 days ago.

I think a nice feature would be the option to when posting youtube links, to have the videos appearing/streaming directly in the threads, i saw on isratrance that they have this now and on countless other forums as well.

I've been wondering why doesn't the psynews.org link ever change? It's impossible to link to threads from here, having unique links would be good. It's really weird too, never seen it before, except in those flash sites.

errr??
right-click properties, ever heard of it?

here's a short tutorial for you:

1. right click link
2. click properties
3. copy the "http://.....www.blabla.org...."
4. go berzerk and pull out all your hair while screaming " NO! NOOOOOOO!!!" & wondering why you didn't think of this before....
5. realise you just posted the "most enteraining post of the week", you won a cookie.
6. eat your cookie

Jesus christ, what the hell did I do to you? I'm just saying that this is the first board I've ever seen where you have to manually fetch the link. Every single other board I've used has unique links ABOVE, you know, the rectangle box on the top, where you type in an url. It's just so much easier to copy a link from there.

It shows perfectly fine over here. It's your browser settings.

The one that works fine has the IPB icon and the other has the P(psynews) icon, looks like I'll just need to bookmark the IBP version. Still, that was really weird.

This is just an idea..

Could we have a special sobforum in the reviews section for ambient/downtempo releases only? I've noticed there's quite a few ambient lovers on psynews so maybe we could have our very own corner of ambient music reviews? Just a thought..

Psynews is trying to set up us the bomb. Might be infected. It's trying to get me to download a virus software, pop-up and everything.

Definitely a good idea. I think we should include electronica/IDM as well. Alternative electronic.

Sure, man. What you need is a free host site, which there are plenty of. YouSendIt, MegaUpload, Sendspace, etc. Upload the track to that site, copy the link to the upload that the site provides, then post it here as a link using the "Insert Link" button to the right of the smilies. Easy.
