Can not access forums!!!!!!!!!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Last ~3 hours I spent trying to access forums from either Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. I tried many different things and it looked like I was able to see the forums until I tried to log in. As soon, as I attempted to log in, I started to get timeouts.

    I experienced the similar behavior yesterday, although briefly (for about an hour).

    I cleared browser history in IE (everything), performed similar actions in GC - nothing helped.

    I am finally able to log in using FireFox, which is the browser I rarely use.

    Please help, it is very time consuming to try to log in to get these timeouts.

    Thanks in advance.

  • My problem also is that I am absolutely helpless in this situation. I don't know who/what e-mail address I need to contact to get assistance if the situation repeats itself.

  • Posting here is your best bet. I checked with ops they haven't seen anything unusual on their side that speaks to any obvious widespread issues. Is this still happening?

  • Not right now, luckily, but since it happened two days in a row I am a bit cautious it may repeat again. On Monday it lasted about 1h., today ~3 hours. I was trying to access threads and instead was getting timeout errors. 

    So, how am I supposed to post here if I am unable to access the forums? This will be a typical CATCH 22 situation - getting error while trying to report an error :)

  • No, I don't have it. I have some other people emails who helped me before. I emailed them yesterday, but didn't get any answer.

    I appreciate if you can e-mail me, so I will be able to contact you directly in these cases.
