Default BUY & SELL NOT WORKING



Of course, it could bewe're only 2 cups of coffee into the day, but as of two minutes ago, I couldn't get any BUY&SELLlinks to work.

Yes,
It is frustrating, hopefully these bugs get worked out soon, but if this is the finial product of switching servers,, please switch back.

Generally the geeks migrating the system to new servers think their special powers will make a smooth transition. When it doesn't they huddle over a console in some dark corner trying to dig themselves out of failure and forget the users are being disrupted.

Anyone there ever think to post a sticky everywhere pages are working alerting everyone to the problem? Nah, cause they are two mouse clicks away from fixing it so it goes on and on. I was around corporate and education ITs for years...nothing changes.

I'll be glad when it is up and running right. Someone send me an email when that occurs.

Being in the IT profession myself. I would wager to say that the system maintenance we saw a couple days ago was due to hardware FAILURE which is why everything (HAD TO) moved to new hardware (servers). I don't think it was an upgrade there for they can't just put it back to the way it was. I'm really surprised they got everything up and running as quick as they did. Now I'm sure they are trying to fine tune all the services on the new hardware to make them run like they did on the previous hardware. It probably wouldn't take as long and they wouldn't run into as many issues if they weren't working on a live site.

One of the things RCU is terrible at is communicating with the community. It's not hard to put up a sticky explaining things.

It's probably a bear to get all the ads into the new format of the board.
It looks like rc groups now.
I liked the buy and sell before so why not f up something that was working,
same like ebay, sucks for the seller now.

Even with the inconvenience of being down, RCU is no doubt the best site around. I'm sure the administration is more stressed about the situation than the overall community. Anyway, cycle some batteries while you're waiting for it to be up and running again!

Ain't life sweet in this age of instant gratification.

By the way, I don't think anyone is making any offers to check on.
