Some members who deleted their accounts in the hope that they would have success with a new account reported (on facebook) that they could not create a new account. However this doesn't exclude the possibility that they can't create an account for the same reason that they had difficulty connecting.

However, I just tried to create a new account using an alternate email, just to see what would happen. I got an error, "database error" and could not continue.

Dead site walking.

My experience is consistent. No difficulties whatsoever on any wifi network.

Same here.

My only non-wifi experience is with Tapatalk on my phone.  Whether the problem resided in Tapatalk itself, or in Tapatalk's communication with GMG, that became worthless at the time of the change, so I deleted the app from my phone and am resigned to inaccessibility via that device.

I'm not saying it's any great tragedy . . . .

Rob hasn't been active at the forum since 2.5.18., so he has probably not seen all the posts.
That's not a great sign either.

As I've said before, my experience is generally the reverse: wifi/broadband is bad, cellular network is fine.

The forced DNS mapping I've done on my desktop PC has fixed the problem there, but any time I try to use my phone using wifi and the same router, big problems. If I'm silly enough to try using my phone while at home, I have to switch the wifi off.

Eh. It's fairly mild. Only really affects me if I try to do something like read the forum in bed.  ;D

But it proves the problem still exists on that connection, and I'm still relying on the forced DNS mapping workaround. I'm just glad that that worked.

Multiple people have brought this up over the past few weeks but it seems like there has been no progress or even acknowledgment that there is an issue.

And this is the part that troubles me the most.

In other news, I’m still getting error messages from time to time, which is annoying to say the least, but, overall, everything seems to be running smoothly.

No problem at all nearly all the time.
