Server too busy...

I've been getting this message a lot lately. Is there a major update going on?

Nope - no update.
Every once in a while when too many people make too many requests from the server, it cannot handle the load.

If this becomes a regular occurrence we'll likely need to upgrade the server again...for now though, to my knowledge, this happens only occasionally.

If members see this happening regularly, please let me know directly.

Many thanks!

Marko

I think last night growler had the problem for about half an hour. I had a number of times...and again this morning when I tried to sign on first time. What's odd, is that there didn't seem to be that many people signed on at the time

Hasn't happened to me this morning but then I just got here.

I only had it last night for about 5 minutes when a handful of us were replying in the TJT at the same time ....maybe the server couldn't handle a bunch of women talking at once.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.
Not exactly sure why this happened (I've informed our webhost though) and we'll be keeping an eye out.

Feel free to report any further occurrences in this thread.

many thx!
