Title: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on January 12, 2011, 07:28:09 PM
When it said the account was "suspended," I mean... What caused that?

According to my host:

Quote
You have been suspended for high system resource usage. Accounts are suspended for usage when they are detected to have consistently high cpu usage, memory usage, or process amounts.

The weird thing is, it was suspended while I WAS ASLEEP.

So just to see if I got this: Was the forum basically suspended because we were too active? :o

Seems counter productive.

I was really hoping that we hadn't gone from one crappy host to another, but it seems like we really might have... :(

So, here's my question: Is the crap we know better than the (possibly lesser, possibly greater) crap we don't know?

Well if the possibility of paying for a server would be better (not that anyone should be paying for one unless we have a ton of members, revenue to keep afloat), would that be better?

Can anyone care to enlighten me on this?

I just timed the amount of time it took to load this page and came up with three minutes and 46 seconds. And guess what? A technician from Singtel came by today and manually fiddled with my connection, and now it's lightning quick without dying. So no excuses there.

Also, I'm getting a blank page with text reading "The page you are looking for is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later." trying to load some pages. In fact, as I am typing this, I have the Main Spam Topic loading, which has been loading since two minutes ago, and this page isn't even finished loading. Jesus.

I'm also particularly concerned about the aforementioned message because I recall seeing that page minutes before the suspension happened a few days ago.

EDIT: The screen looks like this:

I've been getting it for the last 90 minutes. THANK GOD it didn't give me the "suspended" notice again. *Knocks on wood*

If anything's taking longer than it should to load, try refreshing it.

I still don't think any of you understand. If you want to see what I'm experiencing, try visiting this board at around 7:30AM - 9AM EST if any of you can.

So apparently, you can't read people's posts unless you click the reply button.

Just fixed that.

And what of the gigantic reply box texts, the weirdly-placed quick reply box, the logo, the shop and the arcade?
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: The Silver Monkey on June 07, 2011, 08:11:31 PM
Working on the arcade right now.
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?

Quick Reply box text size fixed, and arcade put back in.

Well, played a couple times, but got a vague error report (rather than the usual "only one score per game" error).  Not sure if that's a problem to be worked out or not, but...

Got that fixed. :D

You sure about that? I still got the same vague report today. :?

I'm getting that message for some games, but not all.

Also, play the Ball Madness game and tell me if you can see the timer or not. I only see a small part of it at the top, but that's it.  :?
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: The Silver Monkey on June 08, 2011, 07:18:05 PM
Fixed the size of Ball of Madness.

Which games are giving you that error?

Thanks for fixing Ball of Madness. :)

As of right now, the games that got the error message are Bowser Ball, Chain Reaction, and Curveball. I'm going down alphabetically. I may get back to you on the Family Guy fighting game. I remember it takes forever to be able to submit your score for that game.
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: The Silver Monkey on June 08, 2011, 07:52:30 PM
Both of those are fixed.

Add Pac-Man to that list.

Pac-Man's fixed.

Also add Krusty Weekly and Seconds of Madness to that list.

Side note, the mini golf game is having the same problem as before, accepting the highest number when it shouldn't.
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on June 08, 2011, 08:24:52 PM
Add Sonic Blox as well.
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: The Silver Monkey on June 08, 2011, 08:32:51 PM
Krusty Weekly and SoM are fixed.
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: The Silver Monkey on June 08, 2011, 08:37:27 PM
Sonic Blox is fixed, too.
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on June 08, 2011, 08:55:39 PM
I think I only failed to play 2 games, the Kung Fu game and the Phone Booth game. I see the new Pokemon game in the arcade. I just played it, but it failed to submit my score.

Every game after Sonic Blox is ok.
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on June 08, 2011, 11:39:52 PM
Also, when I look through the arcade, I see "No scores recorded" under my personal best for most games, but I've recorded at least 1 score for every game except for one I think (that being Escape the Phone Booth). Can you fix that?
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: The Ancient Warrior on June 09, 2011, 12:14:37 AM
...And why did everything snap back to a sort of default look right now? :shock:
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on June 09, 2011, 10:22:44 AM
I see a couple more new games were added. One of them won't submit my score, and that would be Lingo. :/
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: Asian Legends Fan on June 09, 2011, 10:23:23 AM
All the games I played won't let me update my score if I get a better high score. Can this be fixed?
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on June 09, 2011, 10:28:14 AM
And I liked the darker background better. Can we have that back?
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on June 09, 2011, 12:41:37 PM
Aw, Lingo got removed. :(

This time, I was able to create a tournament. Password is legends .
Title: Re: What happened to the board earlier?
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on June 10, 2011, 02:50:30 PM
Another problem, this time with two games. Escape the Bathroom and Escape the Closet are accepting the higher number when it shouldn't.

So, list of problems yet to be fixed:

- There may still be glitches in the arcade.

- This place isn't protected against spambots like the old board.

- Increasingly frequent downtime occurs, and otherwise this place is slower than the old board.

- RJF e-mailed me a couple days ago asking if the forum is back up and running.  For whatever reason, he can't seem to access it even after the last upgrade was completed.

- Downtime for software upgrades, bandwidth or loadtime overuse... somtimes even if nobody is online.


I hate to say it, but... Is it me, or is this place close to being more trouble than it's worth?

1. Like what? As far as I know, all of the problems with the arcade are fixed.

2. I'll see what I can do about that.

3\5. I'll see if I can find a better host. No guarantees, though.

4. That's weird. My only advice would be to clear his cache and cookies, but other than that, I'm at a total loss.
