Forum crashes

posted by Friar on - last edited - Viewed by 749 users
Throughout my time here, the site has always been prone to a few crashes, particularly around game launches, but recently they seem to be increasing. Which is odd because I don't think there's a major game launch near. Usually when I try and access it in the mornings (around 9-11AM (UK time)) the site is either extremely slow, or will not load at all. Occasionally I get a grey page with a small broken page icon in the middle. Other times I get a page with a blue square with a V on it, saying database error. Other times I just get a white page which will try and load indefinately. I've tried it on multiple computers, both at home and in college.

Is anyone else noticing this? I thought it could be because they're doing work on the servers or something, but it would be, like midnight in Telltale Towers.

    I believe that is indeed the case, hence why it occurs late Telltale time.
  • So they have nocturns that come in and do stuff? Or is server maintenance automated? What does it involve anyway?

    It's not a big issue for me anyway. I just wasn't sure if ttg were aware of the potential issue, as it'd been going on for a while.
  • I believe the server maintenance is automated. I know the forum goes down for me about 3:00am to about 4:30 am.
  • Why there is AGAIN Database error on your forum and website? AGAIN and AGAIN! Damn, cuold you people rapair this? I wrote about this few months ago and still nothing!
  • The server maintinence is daily. TT tries to do it in the middle of the night for US customers, but that will ALWAYS mean its daytime in Europe.
  • Yes, and when I want to read forum, order smth, open my cart, I can't always do it in the morning (EU zone). Please stop it, I don't know any other website from USA that doesn't work in EU in the morning. Why Amazon.com can work all day without breaks?
