It hangs on my PC too but I don't lose what I've submitted. But I'm having to close the page and relaunch WW to see my post. Something is definitely messed up.

Tapatalk seems to be OK.

When I 'mark' private messages and then attempt to delete the marked messages, the page returns 'The submitted form was invalid. Try submitting again.'

I get the same on the PC and tapatalk.. but it's not consistent. On tapatalk I actually cancel the message and discard, but the post shows anyways.

I still can't stay logged in on Tapatalk. Every time I pull up WW I'm logged out

So i've been checking the forum for a while without reading it.
I think the forum would greatly benefit to transition to discourse which is just a better platform overrall
https://www.discourse.org/

The conversations are laid out way better without pages

So many good things about it. Any admins thought about it ?

I was actually going to propose an architecture change away from phpBB... However I did the maths for a move over to Discourse and I think you'd be looking at 24-30 hours just for the import of the existing posts depending on server spec. That coupled with all the hours spent testing and migrating would be no easy undertaking.

I don't think it has to be either or; I know a lot of communities that have forums and Discords simultaneously. WW forum could be good for pictures and long discussions but Discord can work nicely for just asking a quick question or shooting the shit

As alternative to the installed PHPBB with 3 different templates you can use Tapatalk which has a pretty good user interface imo.

There is no reason at all from our side to change any architecture as we have lot of possible problems and not really a value (the small earnings from this board just outweight all the manpower/costs we have to maintain this site. Furtherly there is always some risk in the air due to copyright violations etc).

Discourse has awful UX. Forums have pages for a reason. phpBB is not my personal favourite but it does what it needs to do.

New phpBB update did not play nice with the customized WW skin?

What do you exactly mean? Did you find any errors/bugs?

There was no PHPBB update deployed by us recently.

Over the weekend the forum and/or server was down a couple of hours or perhaps even a day. When it came back up, the theme had reverted to a mostly stock phpBB theme with I think only the menu at the very top of each page still being custom.
