    Forum outage

    I thought that the TZ UK forum had crashed this afternoon.
    Apparently it was because the top six posters have formed a superforum in which they will post and trade only amongst themselves.
    It will not be possible to gain access to this superforum; membership is by invitation only.
    It will however be possible to be elevated from the hoi polloi by showing exceptional performance statistics in the wreckage of the present forum.

    I am guessing that it will not be met with universal approval by those TZ UKers who are not on cosy terms with their Rolex AD.

    Presumably the forum is either on this hosting provider or suffered an equivalent issue:

    Quite a few fora etc taken out this afternoon, I almost had to resort to doing some work!

    Not even the top six; it’s the current top three and three others who were once up there!

    Already here, the Bear Pit - accessible to all but only frequented by the few.

    Oh, and please don't forget us Patek fanbuoys.

    I was in the middle of typing a post and now I have forgotten what it was about. Horror!

    Did it involve shorting Tesla or outing a forum miscreant?

    My wife genuinely thinks I put my phone down for “as long as I can remember” and took an interest in our 2.5 year old daughter and 1 week old son.


    I missed TZ a lot this afternoon.


    Is there a “TZics anonymous” help group?

    Depends on what you have pulled out from...






    I would have thought pulling out of a T junction or the buying of property would be quite good contraception.

    I thought the forum went down because I finally reached 250 posts.

    It goes down every time someone posts a 'I have 250 posts and cannot post in Sales Corner' thread.

    Good job I didn’t say that then, it wasn’t my fault. But I can now post on sales corner, excited.
