RW Forums Outage Issues

14 posts in this topic

Here's the issue: Whenever I try to bring up the forums, an error message pops up saying "HTTP 500 Internal Server Error" in the tab bar and then it says "The website cannot display the page". This comes up and after a few refresh tries, it either loads the page or says that the service is unavailable. What is going on? Is there something wrong with my computer or is it the website? How do I fix it? It's really annoying.

It's on Rotoworld's end (as you noticed, it says "internal server error") and will be fixed soon. Thanks for your patience. :)

Yep, *was* having problems. Probably doing maintenance on the server (s).

For future reference, please leave all feedback pertaining to technical errors in the "Fantasy Feedback" section - it allows the greatest chance for a system administrator to read your input. :)

From my understanding, another NBCUniversal affiliate was recently moved over to the IPB (IP.Board) server that Rotoworld is hosted on, leading to an overwhelming amount of traffic. This is being looked into, so I'm sure stability will be achieved soon.

Thank you for your concern, and we very much appreciate your patience.

Thanks for taking care of it, this has been a regular problem for me the past few weeks.

Anyone else having constant issues with the forums over the last few days? I've been getting a lot of "Service Unavailable" warnings when trying to navigate and when i am able to get it seems like every other thread I try to comment on my post gets stuck in the "saving post" potion. The only way to get out is to refresh my page which then deletes my post and when I try to re-post, same thing happens.

Anyone else having a bunch of problems?

This has been an issue after NBCUniversal has been moving some other affiliates to the same forum hosting service that this forum currently uses, for more clarification see this thread: http://forums.rotoworld.com/index.php?showtopic=342365

No coincidence that when rotoworld becomes affiliated with Yahoo!, the forum starts having issues.

Get your act together, NBCSports or whoever you are.

It really is getting a whole lot worse lately again. The issue went away for a little bit, but has come back and is really frustrating again.

FYI folks, the Admins are aware of the problem and I assume are working on a solution. If we hear anything definitive, we'll pass it along.
