Forum buckling under the strain.

Postby Kaerius » Fri Apr 25, 2014 4:32 pm

I didn't know where to post this, but lately the forum has become extremely laggy and I'm seeing a lot of 503 errors. I think the game is too successful for the forum hosting site and you may want to look into finding a host with better bandwidth.

It's getting to the point where the forum is almost unusable certain hours of the day.

I've gotten this several time as well. Here it was I did to fix the issue. Close every tab that's open, clear all cookies and browsing historyand close the browser. Reopen and everything should work fine.

Sadly the 503 errors have been quite frequent. kestreladmiral's advice may delay the problem for a while, but it's also a case of replacing one inconvenience with another.

Completely true, it does replace one inconvenience with another, and it doesn't really fix the problem.

We're working on it with our host. Can you let me know what hours it seems at its worst? I personally haven't seen it too badly lately.
