We thank you for your patience and apologize for the incovenience. Please try again later.". i should then press on back button and click again on the same link then it works.

  • That's the infamous Error 500 page.  It has nothing to do with maintenance, it is shown when the web server suffers an internal error.  While they tend to pop up when the back-end is overloaded, the recent software update has added some new causes.  Trying to visit a "My" page when your login cookie is expired is one of them.  Navigate to the main page and log back in.

    If the problem persists, please document your problem by posting the URL of the page you're trying to access.
