    Now that the ad thing only seems to only happen once for me, unless I exit out of PW and go back, I'm here for the long haul. My issues are over. I've got no problem hitting the X button on it once every bit.

    Big thanks to Surrender!

    Man this place is so dead right now. Way to go forum owners, I think you just about killed it this time.

Like I said, this is how it's going to be and I, as well as iron maiden and some of the Mods have been in constant contact with Roman and as he's discussed things with us, I'm beginning to see that even with a few ads, things are heading in a potentially great and exciting direction.

    Things coming, or recently put in place...

    An upgrade to an even better server has been done
    The forums will be upgraded to the newest vBulletin available
    Features we've all been wanting will be added as the upgrade happens
    Continued attention will be given to the forums as needed
    Every effort will be made to keep the site clean and free from issues that may harm your devices

    And most importantly, to me at least, fast response to any issues that suddenly arise. If you guys still feel the need to do a subreddit, or whatever, then that's your prerogative. I'll be continuing efforts to work with the owners on PW's future. I think the grave that's being dug for the forums is a bit premature at this time, to say the least. In fact, I'd say that the outlook for the forums is better now than it has been for years.
    Just keep us updated. Been meaning to ask if anyone heard from Roman because until this post I assumed as The Who said... new boss and all. Just answering our concerns is a step in the right direction when before it was mostly ignored. Seems the adblocker thing is constantly changing, so I dunno if that's due to our feedback or just the natural evolution as the main site tinkers with it.

    I hope the updates happen. I'm still skeptical and the damage may already be done, but if the team has faith I'm willing to give them a shot. I've been behind an offshoot in case things get too far gone, but doesn't seem like everyone's on board there. Just a place to have in our back pocket in case it's necessary. But I suppose we can just remember to Google "crash shelter" to get the link to the original.

    At this point I hate to say it since I cringe when it's brought up in the north part of the board... but let's wait and see.

    Actually the feedback that was provided by some of you guys, along with some of the Mod team directly led to what we now have with the ads. Like Dazz said, I don't think a single click is asking much. I know some gaming and comics forums I visit are real nightmares, it's hard to do anything without tons of stuff popping up.

    And yeah, activity may have been impacted, but I'm betting as word gets out that it's no longer an issue, most if not all of that will return. We've also got to remember that some of the decline is coming at the same time it has every single year we've been around, the best days of summer and back to school. I appreciate the concern, but the sky isn't falling quite yet.

    For those saying its dying well its true that traffic has been slower but that's been happening for awhile and I don't think you can contribute the ads to that solely. It's also summer time and the board has always been slower in the summer as people spend more people outside, on vacation, etc..,

    Also, if you have complaints that it's slow you know how you can help with that instead of contributing to the sites demise and being a 'negative Nancy'.

    EDIT: Also, for those sure PW is dead every forum has a post in it today.

    Outside of the adblocker, things are basically back to normal. It's a tad annoying and I can't see anyone but us regulars putting up with it (although No Scripts did take care of it) but otherwise I have no real complaints.

    Yeah. I can't pinpoint the issue. Having trouble with logging in....and the site crashed on me a few times and I'm only lurking threads.

    Going to have my Internet checked just in case but I'm not ha ING issues with any other site but this one.

    Since this is all over-reacting, if I were to gain admin status can I keep it? Because may be a lot easier than how I got my mod status back last time.

    Did anyone else have issues earlier in the day? The forum was all fucked up looking. Back to normal by the afternoon. Helped my work productivity though.

    This site took me to the Japanese times today, whatever the hell that is.

    Plus, last night it was all code or something.

    I'll message Roman and see if they were working on something. It sounds like that may have been it, since everything seems to be fine now.

    Mistress, I'm not sure what to tell you. Especially if PW's the only site giving you those problems, because nobody else has told us of any issues like you described.

    So, the site was down due to a move to a secured server. It was done at the request of Google in order to get the warning removed from the search page.

    Default Re: PW Say It Ain't So...

    I stopped posting and visiting here once the disable adblock nonsense started, mainly because the ads that used to be on here were absolutely intolerable and made the site practically unusable. No way I was going back to that when I can just visit r/squaredcircle or wrestlingforum with my current settings in place.

    Seems like the adblock message isn't quite as intrusive now (only comes up every so often), but I'm on quite a few different forums and this is the only one that uses such measures. It seems like a bit of a risk to take on a forum that already has such a low user count, but obviously that's up to the owners.

    Good luck.

    Just wondering if anyone knows when I'm mobile it automatically switches to the mobile layout. It's new, just started doing that and I find it really annoying.

    Scroll to the bottom of the page and hit "Full Site" - it's what I do.
