I can answer your first question about why a site has to be taken down for “maintenance” or any other IT related reason. Think of the site as simply a collection of pages. Hence the starting page is called the Home Page. If something is not working as expected, the webmaster or administrator has to shut everything down. Most times, there is an updated operating system like Google (yes they sell specialized web pages for ecommerce or as simple as Wordpress. It could be an alert from the security program of a virus or attempted hack, but in any case adding more transactions only makes things worse. So while it may be an inconvenience, it is surely better than some deviant trying to get access to your private information. I hope that helps. EdI don't see why they have to take down their forum in order to work on it, but it seems that's the way it is. Anyway welcome to all the old DB members who might want to give us a try.
@SW19power6 your post might have been flagged for moderation as you're still quite a new user. That won't happen again once you've made a few more posts. Also there has been a lot of discussion about the various Shaz websites here at PR, recently mainly inside the restricted area (for members with over 50 posts). There's a few more 'outstanding vendors' discussed in there which sell the sort of meds that Shaz sells, and the list of those vendors is growing slowly but surely.
Haha not necessarily clever, but very persistentyou appear clever enoughI’m almost there for the requirement to reach the senior status! To all new members just stay at it and chip away at the 60 quality post requirement. It’ll go quite fast and I’ve found to have made a few friends on here along the way!
