    I've never experienced it on smartphone or tablet, only my desktop, and there, like I posted, it seems to be related to VPN.


    If I hand to gamble a guess it's a timeout issue on the database the forum uses.

    I was experiencing that same problem. I cleared all of my browsing data and it worked fine afterwards.

    I've cleared data, turned off VPN, rebooted, turned on VPN, rebooted, and all combinations and I already use opera. The worse is when I get the error accessing my bookmark, then I have to find a different way in. Tis frustrating at times.

    It has only been the 10 days or so, but it happens fairly often. Using Firefox on a PC.

    No VPN. Happened a couple of times today. vBulletin tech service can fix it for you. Often they can tweak the parameters of your MySQL and the problem will stop happening.

    It was happening to me regularly. I have no VPN. I fixed it by clearing the cookies from TPF. I started a thread on how to do it. I haven't had a single database error since I implemented the fix.

    Just an FYI - an alternative to the What's New link is the Today's Posts link under Quick Links. Sometimes there is an issue with What's New link and you end up with a Database Error.
