    Has anyone been getting this message recently?

    For the past week or so I have been getting this message daily when trying to access bladeforums.com. It usually takes 20-30 minutes for me to finally log on. From there the forums have been running very slow with posts taking a while to go through and sometimes timing out.

    Same here.
    I saw this about 30-45 minutes ago.
    It usually lasts anywhere from a minute to about 10 minutes. It might be more, but when it happens at night I usually just go to bed.

    yes - I've had it happen also and same with the post being SLOW, that's why I think a lot get dbl. post.
    I usually just wait and my post goes through, but I get the message "do you want to leave this page" and click yes.
    The post box comes back up like post did not go through, so I just click another area, come back and check and post is there.

    The error - I just go do something else for bit and then come back. Usually spend a lot of time ( and maybe too much) reading and looking at knives here.

    Funny though, tonight I didn't get the database error when the site was down. The page would just not load.

    Same here. I've had a similar problem for months, this is just a new error message. It seems to go down every night at some point or another.

    The site seems to be crashing a few times per day.

    It happens for me every night at approximately 9:15 Pacific time. Lasts for anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes. I usually have to shut down my browser and start a new session once BF comes back up. Else the response time is sucky.

    It feels like they re-boot the database every night at a bit after midnight Eastern time.

    That's seems about right. Every night there's an outage around that time for some reason.

    It's been daily, and ongoing for me. Day, and night. I even joined another forum for a fix the other day!
