    Default The server is too busy at the moment

    Message
    The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later.


    Nowadays, I've frequently come across this message when I click on a link.
    Have the number of the forums' members boosted beyond the servers' capasity or have the servers been failing for some other reason?

    Apparently, the forum has been really busy lately. (I've been seeing the same message myself.)

    I have got the same message. I believe it is Tdol who has been changing things out there. Give the server a break, Tony.

    I don't touch the server. And I'm not Tony.

    I haven't seen the message, but will notify our webmaster to see what's going on and ensure that the server gets its steroids.

    Then it must be Carlos, or Valentine.

    Funny...I thought it had something to do with my browsers, I went cleaning cache.

    I've been refreshing the pages just to get through the forums for about an hour, but until now, all I saw was that damn message. It's getting annoying and somebody has to do something about it.

    From the graphs, there does appear to have been a considerable surge in traffic this afternoon around 2-3.30/4 (GMT). It is being looked into and will be resolved, and I'll let you know asap. I am very sorry for the inconvenience.

    I've seen the same message, especially on Wednesdays at noon when the number of users exceeds 550.

    There are some IPs that are really hitting the server at around that time. I am waiting to hear exactly what they're doing. we have had problems in the past with people trying to download the whole site, but they shouldn't be able to do that now. It might be an overenthusiastic search engine spider. I will keep you posted.
