When i finally got to the members area i was flabbergasted at the sheer number of issues peeps were having and the forum is Thee busiest forum i haver ever visited.
I don't get why you were flabbergasted as i imagine you had already visited before signing up and already knew you do not need to be a member to view the forum.
As for being the busiest forum that might be because they have 4.5 million customers.
The speed it moved at was alarming. My post disapeared to page 9 within minutes of posting. That was a week ago and as you may have guessed i have heard nothing back from the forums.
The forum is not real time and the OCE's work from oldest thread first, this means there is always a couple of days between asking and getting an answer (sometimnes longer) bumping your thread also causes problems (see below from the site)
We would recommend that you dont "bump" your topic. If there is no reply we would recommend using the "Edit" button to add further info. Each time you "bump" it gets sent to the back of the queue as they work oldest to newest posts first.
