    WAMS

    Anyone else having issues with the new WAMS site ?
    I cant get the layers to work at all, and the whole thing is slow and clumsy

    A mate had the same issues. He changed Web browser & it sorted his issues. Think he was using Chrome so changed to Explorer. Worth a try.

    Yep i was going to start something last night about it.I think it is more accurate and it would be good if there was just a map then add the layers instead of a new page opening.

    Site works better on chrome, but far from useable. The layers disappear once I try to zoom.

    Hmmm. Forward 3 hours , and after sending wams my feedback, it is working ok using explorer.
    Some of the so called fishing spots are a tad amusing though. Even I wouldn't fish in the middle of the road

    Gotta ask. What's a WAMS?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Never too old to learn something new eh @Rushy.
    Think it stands for Walking Access Maps, or something like that.

    The new site is terrible to use. Older version was far easier.

    Hi all - apologies about the slow speed yesterday, which was also causing layers not to load properly etc. We were linked in a feature article on the Stuff homepage (https://www.stuff.co.nz/travel/news/...-public-access) and that resulted in a significant spike in traffic, which our server had a little trouble coping with.

    Everything should be back to normal now!
