Forum bug: cannot load SCS General Discussion Thread

#1 Post by krmarci » 24 Nov 2020 16:37

I have had multiple 504 Gateway Time-out errors trying to load the SCS General Discussion Thread. There have already been multiple complaints that the thread loads really slowly.

this here just proves my point that phpBB is the biggest poop in regards to forum software that exists and that the general topic is just to big to handle it, all other threads load, even with a bit of delay because many people are now here but this thread doesnt load at all even after 10 minutes trying

Maybe the wyoming thread got overloaded due to this viewtopic.php?p=1457298#p1457303

And the more you all insist in trying to enter the forum to say what you want to say (probably about the Wyoming teaser) the worse the forum will work

When ANY webpage is giving that king of problems (sluggishness, HTTP errors with 5xx type of codes, database errors...) the best is to go to do something anywhere else. Keep insisting only worsen the overloading problem of that webpage. Keep hitting F5 trying that it will show you the content at any time doesn't solve anything.

Yes, the most basic but successful way to disturb the working of any Internet service.

But in this case, commited by the very own users of the forum instead from outsiders that wanna cause problems.

The more eager you all are of use the forum on an specific moment, the worse for you and everyone else. It's like all that people moaning because all the online stores of PC components were down the day NVidia launched they RTX3000 series. And all of those complainers smashing like crazy the refresh button in the PC and even in the mobile at the same time.

Internet has it's auto-trigger to punish the lack of patience. Ironic, for a service so much defined for the speed at which deliver its contents. :lol:
