Why was MSFN down yesterday and why is it still slow?

Recommended Posts


Same problem all week. Got worse before getting better. xper working hard at it in the last 3 days. Still at it right now. Write more later, since this message may disappear soon. Content from about the last 4 days is mostly gone, but, then again, we posted at our own risk, while knowing full well things were unstable... Omelettes cannot be made without the breaking of (at least some) eggs. :yes:

@xper: Thanks for getting it working again. Appreciated! :thumbup

Is there some contagious problem with IPB going around ?

A day or so ago there were some strange effects at NeoWin too ( Forums turned offline for now [update: We're back] ). Note the following ...

At the moment we're on an old version of IPB (3.2) so a database conversion is required in order to be able to perform the upgrade, which if all goes well, should be within a few days.

The forums won't be offline for all of all that time, but for now it's necessary.

[...]

Update: And we're back.. stay tuned for an announcement for the 3.4.5 upgrade.

You can't blame someone for wondering if they are causing SQL problems upstream to get everyone to update.

P.S. why not use @MSFNorg at Twitter to mention board status? Are there any other offsite places for news? Yahoo?

Agreed! What's the point of having Twitter or Facebook if it's not used? A/L we wouldn't wonder...

Well other than the fact that many forum posts are now gone forever because of the crash (last posts set back to mostly around June 02), everything SEEMS ok here.

If you're subscribed to any threads, are you getting e-mail notifications of new posts in those threads?

No, because I don't subscribe.

I think a major issue right now is the infolink advertising on this board. It really brings down the user experience.

Apart from this annoyance the board works fine at the moment for me.

Just wondering if there is another upgrade in the future here, as there currently is next door ...

Neowin Forums offline for upgrade to IPB 3.4.5 ( NeoWin 2013-06-16 )

We appreciate your patience while we upgrade, as long as the upgrade is taking place we will also not be able to publish any news due to SQL database management.

There's that SQL thingie again. One has to wonder if they are doing something upstream causing all the grief here. I notice even today when editing posts that sometimes the preview suddenly shows a different font, and sometimes bold formatting vanishes. Weird.

It doesn't really work like that. You could technically run an old version of IPB for as long as you wanted and shouldn't have a problem.

I have also seen some formatting changes when going from page to page, etc... It is possible for some formatting to be "missing" if an include loads the Driver Error, for example some had seen that show up in the Attachment section below composing a post. Also, I say in GD sometimes the board will mark threads as read even if I haven't looked at them yet.

MSFN was never down from here, in the latest 10h. Must have been something in-between you and MSFN that went down, not MSFN itself.

I also had problems accessing the site. This was both in normal web browser and also in Opera Mini (where data comes through Opera servers).
