Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

502 Bad Gateway Error

I just got a couple of these, I had never had a 502 before so I figured I'd report it. Anyone else getting them?

    They're a common occurrence during heavy database load (at least, that's what I believe Ramius had it down to). There should be a few threads here and there about it.

    Ah, I didn't search first, but yeah, it looks like there are a couple threads from 6 and 9 months ago. :|

    Still happening for me, along with general slow loading during peak times (to be expected of course).

    Yeah, this seems to be happening more and more throughout the day. (Although maybe it's the Internet's way of telling me to get back to work!)

    Sounds like some new hardware may be in order. I'd definitely be willing to pitch it and donate some cash, if it would mean a speedier forum. I'm sure many others would feel the same way too.

    Just a thought!

    Xbox LIVE, Steam, Twitter, etc. ...

    Its been very bad this morning.

    Usually I wait about 2-3 mins for a thread to load, and then it loads, I read the 4-5 new posts, then try to go back to the main forum and its fucked again.

    Ramius is working on it last time we had this discussion (under a month ago). The problem is that we share a database with the site and I believe the store as well. While I'd be willing to pitch in I believe (don't have the post in front of me really) Ramius thought he could work out a software solution.

    We're never going to ask for donations for hardware. Not going to happen.

    A shame because I think a lot of people would be willing to do so.

    Not exactly. The store is run off of a different data center entirely (for data privacy concerns). The issue is more one of data structure choice, forum size, and poor full text searching.

    As far as donations, while I appreciate the thought, as a company Penny Arcade would rather see donations go to Child's Play.

    I'm letting Ramius take point on releasing information, but I will tell you that we have plans in the works to speed things up around here.

    Cheers!

    That's what I get for going off memory. Thanks for the update!
