Re: 404 message
I would get a blank  screen.. I could put  my name and password  in, but as soon as I clicked it  went to '404'  thing.

 I tried   differant  links on the  page, both with    and without  having  my passwords in.

Re: 404 message
Indeed!... I was on a post board years ago..great game ( there were others, but   I hated the site) we would  crash  a few times a month and be  down for days at a time.

 I  tried to get the DMs  there to move here.. but  he went to another site, and restarted  , his portion of the game. I go there  just to check posts.. the  Dice  roller is connected  to the posts..so...everyone sees the Dice   rolls  in yuou post, unless you poot in a thread made for dice  rolls?..  The site is slow when   getting there  and changing pages.. I love the game..hate the site, turned  down 4 offers  to join other  games, because  I  have flash backs of the old site there.

 I have mentioned  before, in all my many, many years of gaming, this is the best site I have been  a Member of.

 The Admins  here  keep   the  goofballs from ruining the site, JAse  and whomever  else helps  keep this place running  does a great job, which is why I don't  mine tossing a few  dollars into the  pot now  and then!

For me, it would only happen when I cleared my cookies.

Really?

That's a little odd and separate from what I and my various RPOL folks got. I suppose the gribbly particulars might have led to it, and if your session expired, then you wouldn't have been able to log back in.

In case we got switched up, I didn't mean that I was able to log in once the problems started, I meant that I was already logged in and it just continued showing me my games list whenever I reloaded the main page. Clicking anything on the page gave me a 404 except for like a 120-second span in the middle of the night.

Re: 404 message
On the other hand, it wouldn't let me log out. I think the common thread is "couldn't navigate away from the main page".

Yeah, it was just showing a snapshot of the main page and couldn't actually change anything else, so it preserved the state it was in when the logs started screwing everything up, I guess.

Re: 404 message
Actually, the wiki link in the upper right corned worked. I assume because it directed to a different site.

You know, that's like the one subdomain I didn't try.  Heh.

Re: 404 message
I just get worried that someday something might go wrong with jase!  We need to keep him safe.  In a little box, maybe.

...preferably one with air holes.

Seriously, thank you for everything.  I wish there were more ways we could lighten your load - you certainly do for us.

Lol, I noticed the first message was really old, so I only read the most recent ones. Dumb of me.

And the 404s start back up.  This is literally the only thread I can get to load.  The irony.

The 404 message still usually happens to me at least once per day. I've always assumed it was just a maintenance window or something. It used to be at like 1615 EST pretty reliably, but has become much more irregular since the server changeover.

Re: 404 message
 a few months  ago ( before  new server?)  it seems to happen for an hoor or two on weekends?... this past outage was the longes  I ever had, but have had no problems   since.. I clean out  by   cookies  and history and  stuff  2  or three times   a week, cause I do surveys for  extra   'cash'..don't want too much of that hanging around.

The weird thing was, this was the only thread I could load.


All I can think is that the site gained sentience and was f-ing with me.

It seems to be an intermittent problem.  It can happen trying to access the main page, or pages in games.  Try again, just a little later and it works..

See, there's the problem.  You went outside and the server felt sad.  :)

More seriously, a 500 error seems to mean that the server doesn't know what's going on either.  Basically it means, "There's something wrong, but I can't be more specific."

Re: 404 message
 two times  I got the  white  page that   asks  you to try again?.. its  seems ok now?.. I never had a 500 before.

  My Daughter and her kids   left to go back to NC..and I went to play.. I had posted  before I left... and as soon as I came back..then when I checked  other stuff..it happened.

 but?..working now!
