Is there a reason why this is happening? It's the worst ive ever seen it

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 25-Sep-13 11:07:56

Sorry about this, everyone. Tech have identified what they think is the problem and they're working on a fix. We'll try to have it back to normal ASAP

It's a bit slow to load pages and I've had the offline message half a dozen times but I can post tonight.

SPBisResisting Tue 24-Sep-13 22:12:48

It has not done it at all tonight.

SauvignonBlanche Tue 24-Sep-13 20:25:49

It's very annoying.

olibeansmummy Tue 24-Sep-13 20:24:44

I agree it's been rubbish lately, I've never known a site go offline so much!

edam Tue 24-Sep-13 18:31:16

YY been happening here for a week or two - every so often when I click on a thread I get the 'MN is offline' message & logo.

SinisterSal Tue 24-Sep-13 18:27:16

Ah here MNHQ!

FruOla Tue 24-Sep-13 16:54:51

It's been doing this for the last few weeks hmm

I don't know why you're LOL'ing at hamsters, Olivia, we've been asking poor Tech to feed them for years a while now.

Actually, I suspect it's poor Tech who's running around a large wheel sad

Just had my first one of the day. Bang on the button.

PseudoBadger Tue 24-Sep-13 13:56:59

Nearly every time I click on a new thread (safari) the site tells me it's offline....

Eve Mon 23-Sep-13 23:24:18

Don't you know how much a new server costs ?

Could buy a lot of gin with that money!

ClayDavis Mon 23-Sep-13 23:21:52

<looks round suspiciously>

How did you know?

SinisterSal Mon 23-Sep-13 23:14:58

I predict new horrible share buttons that will end up with us broadcasting ourselves posting in our dressing gowns and cutting our toenails

OliviaMMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 23-Sep-13 23:09:17

LOL at hamsters - not sure what the problem is but we'll find out.

ClayDavis Mon 23-Sep-13 22:58:22

I know. sad

I press post message and the button goes from dark purple to light purple but then nothing else happens. If I copy the text in the text box then refresh the page and paste it back in it's OK and will post. That's better than losing the post completely when I press post and get the offline message I suppose.

usualsuspect Mon 23-Sep-13 22:51:50

It's getting on my wick.

When it's not down, I can't post. I just get a please wait message in the post message box.

cozietoesie Mon 23-Sep-13 22:48:55

They're picking on you Clay.


ClayDavis Mon 23-Sep-13 22:44:37

I've not noticed the going offline tonight any more than in the last few days but it keeps crashing when I try to post.

TheOneWithTheHair Mon 23-Sep-13 22:27:38

Doing my head in too.

Bet MNHQ can't reply either as it keeps going offline.

Hassled Mon 23-Sep-13 22:11:52

It is doing my bloody head in. It really needs to stop. And it never really is down, is it - F5 and you're usually back in after an irritating few moments. Although not always.

Sirzy Mon 23-Sep-13 21:57:43

Just as I went to post a reply to this thread - it crashed!!

cozietoesie Mon 23-Sep-13 21:55:09

Yep - lots of backup and server optimization going on, I'd guess. Buy some new ones HQ! (And give Tech a few new hamsters as well.)

gamerchick Mon 23-Sep-13 21:20:16

I can almost clock it starting within a half hour. Usually from half 4 it starts to be a massive pain.

If the servers are struggling with an increase then there has to be a solution in there somewhere.

YoniBottsBumgina Mon 23-Sep-13 21:16:16

Are the hamsters tired?

Orangeanddemons Mon 23-Sep-13 21:12:21

I was just going to post about this. It's been bad for ages, but tonight it's been terrible. Been down about 15 or 16 times so far
