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

Anyone else getting this numerous times a day lately?

It used to be that when it occasionally happened that you could get on after a few minutes. When it happens now it seems to go on for some time. This is one of the first places I peek when I sit down and two mornings in a row after trying periodically for 30 minutes or so I've moved on.

Default Hours off for me...

Over the last couple of days I've had stretches of 4-8 hours where I couldn't get on. I tried to get on from about 6:00-11:00 pm last night and never could.

I went to bed not knowing what wonderful items people had thrown up in the for sale section ( I didn't sleep well...)

Sadly, this happens to me fairly often. I hate not getting the log fix when I need it.

Maybe we should all cough up some membership fees to get on our own bigger faster server.

I'd pay an annual fee to keep the log running. Not sure if you were being sarcastic, but I'd pay a few bucks, no problem.

It has only happened to me the last couple of evenings. I figured it was a message from God to spend more time with my family.

I was being 50/50 sincere and sarcastic. I would have no problem coughing up a resonable annual fee.

I have not seen that message since the last cleaning.

Funny, Bill. I thought the same thing. Ha!

It has happened before to me in the past, but only for a minute or so. Lately, it has been happening a lot and for much longer periods of time.

Either the server is having issues, doing maintainence, needs more bandwidth, or a huge skate event is going on right now that requires thousands of skaters to come here for hours at a time.

Btw, I cannot find anywhere to donate money to this forum to help out.

I'm cool with a fee, but think a donate button maybe better? Kind of like public radio or something have a fund drive once or twice a year maybe?

I agree, a new member may not join if they had to pay fee. Maybe a grace period of like 3 months for the newbies, But has anybody asked kathie or Jessica If they would want to put up with this type of upgrade? might require more time on their part too.

Default This problem is serious and getting worse

This is a serious server problem. It is becoming overloaded, and the amount of real SLF traffic has not been that heavy.
The server needs attention. It may be having disk full or failing problems, or it may have had spurious processes loaded into its memory causing it to bog down with them and neglect SLF operations. Hopefully, it is not any kind of malicious infection.
Whoever is supposed to be monitoring for server problems needs to get a heads up to see what is wrong, hopefully before the whloe site goes down.

For me, it happened several times for several hours over the past couple of days, but not yet today. Maybe it's resolved. The many attempts I kept making to log in made feel like I might be addicted. But I guess there are worse addictions I could fall to...

Did anyone email Kathie Fry?

I hope we can all get our fixes soon enough!
