Sorry, the forum is temporarily unavailable.

"Please try again in a few minutes."

About one out of every six posts I make is followed by this message, and by "please try again in a few minutes", it means, "GO AWAY come back tomorrow loser". I'm curious if anybody else is experiencing this behavior, or if it's just me. Either way, it's annoying, and I'm curious about what could be causing it.

I get this from time to time, but it seems to clear up in 10 mins or so

I get that message about half the time when I click on "view new posts" from the forum's front page. Its really frustrating. Sometimes I try again in a few minutes, but it doesn't usually go away that quick, so usually I just come back the next day.

It happens to me fairly frequently, but it usually resolves itself after a couple of page refreshes.

If this happens to me, I try it via jennyverse.com and from this page I click on the forum link.
sometimes it works, but not always, and it can be that the next click inside the forum wil show me the "sorry..." page again.

I suppose it's a server problem, but not a big one, if all other related websites, like pastedefender, jennyverse, unicorn jelly and otakuworld are working, then there is no reason to worry about.
The hard stuff is if my browser can't find all the sites.
In this case the server must get his electronically hickup.
Time for reanimation.

I wonder why this problems are always appear.

Yes, the forum does this for me on occasion too. But it's usually a transient thing, like you've already said. I guess the poor server isn't always enough to carry the entire Jenniverse!
If this last post seems ridiculous, please disregard it. Thank you. ;)

I've made a habit of copying text that I write to the clipboard before I post, just in case this pops up (although I haven't yet had it fail to post, even when I get the message).

Okay, so that means that it isn't just me, and that we can deduce that it's something internal to the server. A few of you are implying that it may be a load issue. I guess that's something we can't quite test ourselves, though.

If it is a load issue, though, should this forum get busy again from another project, the issue will amplify, right? I guess that's one round-a-bout way of testing it.

Well, looking at it from a technological perspective, the only thing this could possibly imply is that the database isn't responding but the web server is -- nothing else that I can imagine would be able to have these results.

Hmm, yeah, I guess you're right. But that could mean several things, though. It could even be a hardware issue. The previous forum build didn't really do this, it was just occasionally down, so I guess it really couldn't be load. I don't know, I'm a bit out of my depths, here.

It's been doing it since the forum came up. Refreshing or two fixes it.

There are problems with the forum software, or it's interaction with the server, that we have never been able to solve. I am sorry for the troubles. The only answer so far seems to be rebooting the darn server regularly, which of course shuts it down for a few minutes. Many people contribute to this process, Anna being the reboot hero, I think.

I wish I had a better answer.

My PHP boards would do this sometimes, and I just had to repair the databases through MySQL... Is that applicable here?

I did it again!
After one (or more) hour, nothing happened, - and I have new computer (since Dez2012), means: no old passwords.
I had to reactived the old harddisk.
Allright, "server down" can happen again...

Fixed. I updated the forum software.

There may be a few icon glitches here and there as there have been a number of changes to the base style Jennifer used for this board.
