Might be related to the issue that they are going to be working on later: link to a message in another game

Re: 404 message
Been getting the 404 errors again lately. Half a dozen today alone.

Is there more maintenance going on we should sit tight through, or does someone's tail need to be tugged to tell them something is not working right at the server?

Re: 404 message
Same here, I thought it was just me. It lasts for a few minutes and then clears on its own, only to strike again a few minutes later.

Re: 404 message
I can confirm players in Norway, England, and Australia (as well as me in the US) having the problem simultaneously, so it's definitely not just a local thing.

Re: 404 message
I've been getting them off amd on too. It never affects the main rpol.net site, just every sub-page. Sometimes these 404s last only for a few seconds, other times they last for several minutes.

Re: 404 message
Anyone got an official response to what's going on?  Do they need more server donations to cover a repair/upgrade?

Re: 404 message
It's odd that I haven't had any trouble hitting the main page.  I only have been getting the error when I try to dive into a game or forum.  It makes me think that it is an authentication issue, because I think that the main page can be painted (even with highlighting games' post count in red, I bet, since that's done on the browser from cookies) without actually checking authentication.  Hmmm.  Except that it does need to access your list of games you participate in; I can't believe that's kept in cookies.

Well, it was a thought.  It is definitely consistent, though.  I've even tried a shift-refresh on the main page, and it works fine, but then trying to open a forum or a game gives me the 404.

Re: 404 message
someone told me last year, i believe, that the main page i have set to my Favs, brings me in, but there are new links  for the rest, and the 404  disrupts  that

Re: 404 message
The main page is easy to get to, but there have been a 404 errors on my end trying to go anywhere else, today. It happened to me once a few days ago, but today was pretty bad for a bit.

Re: 404 message
It has been happening for a couple days several times each day for stretches. Last time it happened this bad was disk space chewed up by log files, per message #14 in this thread but dunno if it's the same thing now. Same set up though, getting to the front page but not being able to reach the games themselves.

Re: 404 message
I noticed that, during last few weeks, various websites have similar issues that were really uncommon before, so I guess this depends on the much higher people working from home during last few weeks or months of quarantine restrictions, that are increasing a lot the traffic on the web.

Re: 404 message
Adding my name to the list of people with this issue. However I was chalking it up to the increase in people working from home or using the internet.
