    Why are the forums always busy!?

    For one thing, Penny Arcade is a popular webcomic.
    For another, this is June, month of E3, so that led to it being busy for like a week.
    Plus, there's another PAX coming up, so there's that.

    There's many reasons why the forums are busy, quit complaining, the admins/mods/etc. are doing their best to get the forums completely fixed and bring up a new one, just be patient.

    Kinda hard to be patient when I am almost always unable to get on these forums :/

    The forum administrators are not beholden to your whims. If you can't be patient you could explore other forums to browse?

    You should ask for your money back.

    Im often finding myself unable to view the forums and when I can I often get a servers busy message after typing up a post and trying to post it up

    This is REALLY annoying. Ive been on these forums for the last 2 years but it this keeps up i dont think I'll really be able to participate :/

    Note: this post was from a few days ago I accidently posted it in the wrong thread.

    here's hoping the problem is gone *raises glass*

    To quote Ramius about the problem in general:
    Ramius wrote: »
    ah, this might be worth mentioning:

    When the server decides it is too busy, it basically goes to sleep for 60 seconds so things can cool down. So if you hit a link and get the "too busy" message, everyone else is getting that message at the same time and will be for up to 60 more seconds. So that is why you see it so often "if the previous link resulted in a 'too busy'". The only time that wouldn't be the case is if you happened to come in 58 or 59 seconds into a cool-down period so your next click happens just as the server is recovering.

    As for specifics, the most recent problem from yesterday/the day before was due to one of the servers not helping out with the work load. It was slacking off. Read the moderator post from the previous page.

    I just wanted to say that the forums have been running AWESOMELY recently, and I appreciate the work being done to keep them this way.

    I had at least a half dozen time outs today. Including one just now trying to read this thread. 'Awesomely' is relative.

    They've been happening during the afternoons recently, appx 1PM EST.

    Which is, coincidentally, when the Steam summer sales update.

    Hm!

    When I tried to save the changes to an edited post, vBulletin gave me a little in-window pop-up. It was actually pretty cute.

    This issue is becoming more frequent.

    By more frequent, I mean that I would run into this problem once an hour before. Now it's once for every two forum links I click.

    Sigh. Just not sure what to do with myself when it's slow at work if I can't read the PA forums.

    EDIT: Oh I get it, the Steam sale. I guess there's nothing to be done about increased traffic except bear it. No more whining from me.

    Maybe it could be made into a shirt and given away to forumites at PAX Prime or PAX East to celebrate the new forums?

    Yes, I nominate "The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later." as the next PA shirt.

    Obviously in the old forum's color scheme.

    Maybe even have special, limited edition shirts in the old old color scheme.

    @JaysonFour make this happen.
