    My posts don’t appear for hours, sometimes, by which time lots of others have covered some of the items I have mentioned. Is this just because I am a new commentator and have to be moderated?

    Bene having a few problems again this evening. Earlier I had problems accessing the site, but found that my internet was fluctuating in / out of signal. However about half an hour ago I had
    Just had message 3 times,(I tried the refreshing option first), telling me I couldn't connect securely to this site, either because it's moved?o_O or that the TLS settings weren't secure enough? :confused: Which I'm sure isn't the case @tes_helpdesk?
    Should of course have taken a screenshot, but didn't think at the time.:(

    Hi @Lara mfl 05,

    Apologies for the delay in responding to your post.

    Sorry that you have been experiencing problems with the site. Are you still having problems? Have you cleared the cache? If the problem persists please can you let me know so that I can ask the techies to investigate and hunt down those pesky gremlins?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the replu @TES_Rosaline . We seem to have narrowed it down to potentially aa problem with my virus detectore -Bitdefender,, as when I switch that off the problem doesn't happen. I have switched it back on and will see if the problem persists or if further investigation is needed.

    I am facing problems with "starting a new conversation". When I go to the Conversation tab, I cannot see "start a new conversation". I just need to message an author to ask for some resources. Please can you help as soon as possible.

    It's because you are a new member with (at the point I am writing this) have made only two posts. TES Admin don't allow new members to start a Conversation (PM) until they have established a satisfactory posting history. They don't explain exactly how many posts that is though (before you ask me!). @TES_Rosaline what's the official TES answer to that?

    However you can reply to Conversations started by someone else. So you could start a thread on the TES Authors' Group forum and ask the author to PM you.

    New problem and on another thread t seems it's not just me.

    If I leave a tab up from tes I get the 'temporary disruption notice' after a few minutes?
    I had it first thing this morning when I opened up and now when I had a few tabs up as I'd a few thread to catch up on. and suddenly found the tabs had the error message.

    I've tried logging out and logging back in again- thereby generating your automated response about your new security feature, but it still hasn't resolved the problem. :( Only a problem on tes site.

    Would be grateful if you could look into this. Currently I'm on Edge, though I alternate between using that and Firefox, so I will try switching to Firefox for a while and see if it makes any difference.

    This is the message I see. I have to close the tab and type TES Community into Google to get back onto the site.

    Same here - if I use the log in page, I get the error message after putting in username and password. If I then go to Google and search TES and go to Community, it gets me straight in without having to log in again.
