Not sure this is the right thread but it will do. I can't post on the YouTube Video Jukebox. It keeps closing and reloading. I don't have this problem with any other forum or thread. iPad here.

Closes and reloads at the point you do what exactly? Or just when viewing the thread before you even get a chance to hit the post button?

When trying to post a link and selecting video from the menu I get a reload and it happens every time. I've had the problem before associated with the YouTube thread but not for a while. Honestly, I think it's a problem with Safari but thought I'd post it to see if anyone else has the problem.

Does it work if you skip the video "button" and just manually type "[video]" then paste your video link then manually type "[/video]"?

Haven't tried that. I'll give it a go.

ETA: that doesn't work either. I can't type anything into the post. The message I get is this webpage experienced a problem so it was reloaded.

ETA more: just tried it again and now Safari is crashing. Whoa!

I'm suddenly getting these error messages inexplicably on DC™:

Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. Please try again in a few minutes.


Even when I'm not using "search."

This is anomalous behavior for the site.

Well, that makes it hard to search for the problem.

Some of the display pages (especially "Active topics") actually do a search internally to decide what to show.

The CPU utilization of the site was high a while back, so it was being cranky about using more resources. If it persists I'll reboot the instance which usually helps.

The forum went out about 20 min ago, and now has just re-surfaced. What's going on?

The forum takes itself offline if its CPU usage spikes too much which it did just now for some unknown reason. I rebooted the server and it's happy now.

DC became self-aware.

I am not merely enlightened but luciferous. Therefore it should cease and desist.

perhaps it might be possible to block/deflect such bots at the entrance [and fuck them baboons]. If they have anything useful to do here, I totally fail to see it.

And today something similar had happened again, the site was temporarily unavailable. Were it up to me, I would bar the external search engines. It is not like we are getting a stream of new members from their google- or other searches.
