    Report your BG outages here

    To help me figure out who I need to torture I would appreciate if people could mention their BG outages in this thread.

    Things that I need to know:
    • Does it happen to the whole forums, wiki or only a specific url?
    • Was it a connection timeout or an error message? Copy&paste the said error message.
    • When did this happen? Include timezone.
    • For how long.
    • Did you try another browser? Which browser and version are you using?
    • Did you try clearing your browser cache?
    • Did you try flushing your DNS?

    All of the forums just went out on me for less than 5 minutes. I'm guessing approximately 6:30-6:34am EST. I received the cloudflare this site is down page while it was down.

    Browser: Mozilla Firefox 18.0
    Flash: Shockwave Flash 11.5 r502

    Didn't have a chance to try another browser.

    This has happened a couple times over the past week or two, usually between midnight at 8am est. Usually only down for a couple of minutes max. If I'm posting when it happens I get the timeout page, but if I'm not posting I get cloudflare. Everything in this paragraph is based off my memory, so take it with a bit of salt.

    The past couple weeks I've been getting on and off a CloudFlare website saying the forum is unavailable and isn't cached. Clearing my cache doesn't help but restarting Firefox does, if I recall... don't remember if I had to reboot my system completley. Could be a problem on my end though but I've never had that kind of thing happen before until recently, and it doesn't happen on any other site. Using the latest Firefox.

    I've been having the CloudFlare problem too for quite a while. Kept saying the forum was down even though I could access it on my phone. Not sure if it was just my situation, but allowing it to run scripts temporarily fixed the issue.

    Does it happen to the whole forums, wiki or only a specific url?
    The last few times it's happened, the minute I encounter the CloudFlare page, all links on the forum lead to the same "site is down" page.

    Was it a connection timeout or an error message? Copy&paste the said error message.
    CloudFlare's "Website is currently unreachable" page, says it'll attempt to grab a cached version of the page, but never works. (not sure if it's because I have scripts blocked from cloudflare.com)

    When did this happen? Include timezone.
    Started on 1/9/2013 at 6:52AM EST (usually around when BG goes down for a bit) when I tried to access the 2013 donation thread. Wasn't able to access the site until I allowed Cloudflare to run scripts at 1/10/2013 at 2:25AM EST. Discovered that I could visit the site on my phone, yet on my PC it said the site was still down.

    For how long.
    About 20 hours.

    Did you try another browser? Which browser and version are you using?
    Did you try clearing your browser cache?
    Did you try flushing your DNS?
    Browser is Mozilla Firefox 18.0 and I didn't think to flush my DNS or try another browser at the time. I was going to clear my cache if allowing cloudflare.com to run scripts didn't work. Haven't ran into the Cloudflare page again, but next time I do, I'll try all three out.

    When a site goes down and you get a cloudflare page, if you have cloudflare blocked with noscript then you'll keep getting the cloudflare page even if the site comes back up. You need to at the very least temporarily enable cloudflare when that happens.

    Is http://www.bluegartr.com/forum.php supposed to be a 404, while the rest of the forums work fine?

    There's usually tiny text that mention if the error comes from Apache, Nginx, etc...

    Ahh shit sorry, missed that. It seems to have cleared up though since I went to bed. If it happens again i'll update whatever word that was in small print on the bottom.

    redirect from bluegartrls.com no longer works. I'm assuming this was anticipated though.
