Not right now, no. It did time out once, but has been fine for all other clicks.

Never happened to me perhaps because I use Konqueror rather than Firefox to access it.

Lo,

We had a spambot attack that didn't seem to result in any spam on the forums but had the effect of DoSing the server for a bit. They've moved on now. What larks eh!

They like the hidden pages as they just want to influence search rankings an i do tend to use the smilies a lot saves on the typing a bit.

Enjoy the Choice :)

Re: the wiki: you can always see the most recent changes on this page to see if any spammers have been playing games.

Thats cheating. You should have to go around and around in circles using the wiki links.
