Now the "Alerts" is working well, I find I now have a list of old alerts when I hit the red triangle, getting longer as each new alert arrives. How can I delete the alerts that I have read?

I shall be turning off the Alerts Modification (the triangle at the top of the forum) for two days to see if this is causing an issue with slow loading of the forum, and high usage of the servers CPU.

Hopefully this will give us an the answer we need, as something is causing problems.

Thanks!

I hope the triangle is not the cause as I use it as a quick visual check for PM's.

Since this has been brought up, something I have been meaning to ask for some time.

Would it be possible to get a sound played when a PM is received?
A simple "Ping" would do the job for me  :)
or
If not a sound, then a small pop up box either in the middle or along the bottom of the screen?

Sure!  Go into your Profile, look for Modifying Profile on the left hand side, and then Personal Messaging, click it.  You will then see a 'tick box' for 'Show a popup when I receive new messages'.  Tick and save.

This will only be temporary in regards to the Alerts, as I feel it's a key feature.  The coding may have to be rewritten for it, or whatever is causing the issue.  Process of illumination sadly.

I noticed it but knowing how touchy some people are about Dyslexia on here thought it too dangerous to point out  ::)

The forum has been very slow for me right now - I was viewing unread threads and it too 3 seconds to bring them up each time I did it.

Do you want us to report slowness whilst the testing is going on?

EDIT - it took at least 7 seconds for this post to get sent
Just one Pendolino, give it to me, a beautiful train, from Italy

From 15.10 today I have suffered many issues usually involving class 504's and class 404's.
Couldn't even log off without an error message ???
