Aye it is. Getting rid of the 'would you like to review what everyone else typed before posting' thing would make a huge difference. On match day it can take 10 submits before you get anywhere. Multiply that by 30-40 people and you've significantly increasing server load over what it would be.

Indeed, and in these times, we all want to get our "fecking spineless w@nkers" post in three times a match, without having to review everyone elses offerings of "ffs", "sh1t" and the like.

There may not be a widget in the control panel, but a clever sod like Kev will be able to find the bit of relevant code and comment it out :D If not, I'm sure there'll be a hack out there for it.

That was your short ban for replying to your own Caption in the Caption thread.

Bad form that .... do it again and Zulu will shout at you.

I was actually about to do it again mentioning Bruce, lemon soles, and filleting knives. Maybe the internet is becoming self-aware in a Turing test manner after all... :wink:

Doesn't seem to take much for this site to go down.

What was the reason for the latest wobble?

There were a lot of unregistered users/bots online when it were struggling before.

I've no idea if that has anything to do with it like.
