    I've been keeping track

    https://statuspage.freshping.io/10644-scrapmetalforum

    It is down about ~30% of the time (over the last week)

    We purchase laptop computers and many components for greater than scrap value. We offer a shipping reimbursement program.replies

    The last couple months have just been brutal. There have been times I can't log in, times I don't get notified for new PMs, times I do, but can't send a response because that times out, and tons of other things. Something just isn't working right

    i dont know exactly who admin is, but i think he should try to reach out to other members here who may be in a position to assist him, in case he has his hands full and is unable to run the site properly.....or whatever the reason may be for the many times that the site is inaccessible/offline.

    It's getting more difficult for me to post. I was able to log in twice this week but that's about it. What a shame.

    Time to lock an interesting thread? Check

    Time to fix known issues with the forum? Negative, Ghostrider

    Time to even keep the forum up more than about half the time? Negative Ghostrider

    Oh come on Auminer, they did close that thread yesterday. I'm sure it was a group effort and they must be plumb tuckered out. They need to rest for a few months and they'll be back at the helm with bells on.
