Technical Issues 504 Error 3 times in a row, explain?

Recommended Posts

(edited)

Ok ,this is starting to annoy me.

This has been happening for quite some time, but it's only now becoming very annoying. 3 times in a row I got a 504 error when refreshing the page and going to status updates, it says something like, 'This site is offline, please try again later' and it has a connection status at the bottom and when I look at the status for MLP forums it says something like

mlp forums.com
Offline

This is very concerning for me, as well as annoying. Can a mod or admin give me a straight answer to what is going on?

Thanks in advance!

 

Edit: Just happened again as I was posting this.  

 

Here's the thing I was talking about

 

Website is offline  

No cached version of this page is available.

Error 504 Ray ID: 11a25d1977440296 Gateway time-out

What happened?

The web server reported a gateway time-out error.

What can I do?

Please try again in a few minutes.

That's a Ddos attack. Ddos stands for Distributed Denial of Service. It's when a hacker sends out a bot to overload the server with requests, thus making it inacessible. On the victims' side, it gets cluttered to the point that their request times out, resulting in a time-out error. The team is trying their best to rid these attackers, which may be anti-bronies trying to take the site down.

I have gotten the same thing, and now my Forums is super slow, and I have to post things twice in order for them to post properly

I was just getting this error a few times myself, been getting them for a good while. Gotta say, it is getting quite annoying. They really need to straighten this stuff out. The glitches on this site are becoming rampant.

 

 

Aaaaaaaand the website crashes twice while I try to post this.

Okay, so Felds, Adam, and myself are investigating this at the moment. It doesn't appear to be a DDoS, but rather a server glitch. We're trying our best to get this all fixed up, so we ask for your patience while we try to sort this out. We apologize for the problems, guys.

Dude... call me Justin. ZW is an acronym for Zelda Wiki, the site I originally came from. I just use it everywhere because "Justin" is usually taken :P

I see this error appearing quite often, too. Sometimes it lasts for a whole day until the forum starts working back in the evening.
