Current Server Issues

    Hey guys

    You may have noticed that today, the server has been acting up.

    This is due to an error which occured during the backup. We THINK we've sorted it, but it seems to be repeating and I've had to reboot the server a couple of times which thus causes a period of lack of speed due to having to recache the database. So, if the forums get slow today, you now know why. We're hoping to solve it permanently shortly.

    I apologise for any inconvenience

    3 hours of downtime in exchange for the lack of lag in 2 months. I think it's a fairtrade :p

    Fair enough! Large forum databases, y u no sync properly?
     
  5. It's not anyone's fault for the server getting slowed or the database getting filled.

    I woke up this morning, got ready for school and got on the computer waiting for my mum to get ready. I open up the internet and find myself at Google as it's my homepage. As I have favourite tabs on Internet Explorer, I click on Serebii Forums as a quicklink. It loads forever. I try again. It loads forever. Then I try going to the forum via the main Serebii site, and it was maintenance.

    Maybe it's just me, but I can't seem to access the forums on my iMac through safari and firefox. I am able to on my phone right now though. I keep getting a can't connect to server error.

    You'd better check your connection. I typed this from my IPad.

    And I have never noticed any lag. Ever.

    The only thing I can say is...

    You're doing it wrong.

    Try going into safari settings and clearing you cache/cookies/history.
    If that doesn't work, try resetting safari settings.

    Yup, I did all that earlier. Still the same error. I think it has to do with my computer and not my browsers cuz like I said firefox was doing the same thing. I even tried IE and still got the same error.

    EDIT:

    Got it working now. Had something to do with Peerguardian.

    any small amount of lag is acceptable compared to the massive lag we used to get

    and I just experienced a forum crash...something about "server random restart" while trying to post something...

    the refreshes caused a 4-post that I had to then go back and delete 3 of :(
