it’s pretty accurate - I think the forum has been mostly down - say 90% of the time since early morning new york time - there have been intermittent brief periods - on the order of a minute or two - when you could actually read posts and extremely short slivers - on the order of a few seconds - when you could post
I think it has been constantly up only since 16:45 new york
These past days there were quite a few errors posting messages or simply trying to view posts for me as well. Maybe it wasn’t “all day” today, but the forum did go down for about an hour or two and repeatedly stopped working every now and then.
It seems to have been stable for about two\three hours now, though.
Of course perceptions of “all day” are going to be relative to where on the planet you are and when your waking hours are.
As to the problems with the forum, there have been intermittent problems for weeks now. Quincy and the FCC team have been working with people from Discourse to resolve the problems. I know it’s frustrating, but people are working on the problem.
Thank you for the information. We need a sticky on the top of the forum or something on the main page if this will be consistent. I only infrequently check back. Got really excited reading about the new challenges and 10 minutes later the forum was down. Living in BJ, I tried again with a VPN waited an hour or two and went to sleep. Wasn’t sure if it was related to the problems also happening with the beta challenge map or a more local cause with the GFW until I saw your link.
