    All of a sudden, since last night, I've been getting a bunch of 504 errors on the site, making it hard to get around in.

    Just putting that out there.

    Recently, I've been having hard times getting into the site as well, maybe it has something to do with the mods fixing the servers? The cheats sections wasn't working recently either.

    it happens every time we run complete backups of the website.
    we need the full power of the server so everything else is pretty much left aside...

    maybe a frontpage announcement of scheduled downtimes would be appreciated?

    I'd rather the site go unresponsive for a while as it backs up the site than the site crash with no backup. GBAtemp ain't the ONLY website on the net. I can browse elsewhere until it's back.

    I appreciate the backups as a fail-safe and I too think there are other things to do than GBAtemp. Have you guys heard of, I know this is crazy, "outside"? [​IMG]

    well, when it's going 48 hours or so for something I'll spend around 10 minutes or so on a day, I don't think I'm being to obsessive.

    And by notice of SCHEDULED downtime, I was suggesting advanced notice. like maybe 24 hours or so?
