Not sure who else is having the problem, been logged in for a very long time and then can't connect to the webinar, got the chat for a few seconds then off and then try to refresh but says nickname not allowed? No video, no sound, no chat, I feel so so  :'(

 :'(Same here.  Tries to connect but says site has reached its resource limit.  I hope I will be able to use the replay because when I tried this week on the first lesson it got to a certain point and then stopped and would never go forward again.

I have a suggestion maybe for next time.
What about everyone who will def attend make a booking. However Nolan must check how much peeps they can handle on the server and only that many are allowed to attend the webinar, then we get a code to access, that way everyone who booked can get up. I know that will mean allot of people will not have access to the live class. First come first serve?
If someone then later can't make their booking, they need to free up their booking and then that place can go to another person.

Have not been able to connect either. How disappointing. It says resource limit reached.

I'm in the same  :boat: ...can't connect... was able to get chat...and that was it.  I don't think Dennis and Nolan expected such a huge response to the webinar.  PaintBasket is most definitely growing...  I will be patient and wait for the replay seeing that I have not done the first painting yet... which I will attempt tomorrow.  :whistle:

 :'( I am also crying.   I only got the chatbox.   Looked forward to this all week and then couldn't connect.  Anyway we still have the opportunity to see the replay which is so kind of Dennis and Nolan.  But it isn't the same as watching a live class with all the chatting.

Same here.  Nolan will have to source an even bigger provider. Just tried again. Same. Resource at it's limit. Ah well, never mind, we'll see the replay, not the same though, half the enjoyment is the Chat Box!

Well can't connect either. Soooo wanted to see this.  :(
I know Nolan and Dennis are doing their best. Hope they can figure a way to do this.

I got to see it all.  :whistle: great show  :whistle: too bad you missed it  ;D (I'd need an emoticon showing an Arrogant Frog because that's what I feel like at the moment)  :fight:
If not now, when? If not me, who?

I too did not see the show, but I did enjoy chatting with people literally from all over the world!  Looking forward to the webinar in due course. 

Perhaps Nolan can advise whether it's worth our while sitting for 2 hours next week and experiencing the same problem or will you have resolved the problem by then? I am sooo glad I wasn't in your shoes tonight, Nolan.   :1hug:
