I check the PCW forums several times a day, starting about 0400 up to about 1500 EST. In the last couple of weeks there has been a lot of downtime on the PCW forum servers (the main site stays up). Would someone higher up, such as a mod or admin, give us an update?

It may be something with the link, try typing the URL in the address bar as I did.

What, server 500 errors? You're not alone with those.

Hey Guys,

I'm sorry, I was not aware this was happening. I'm not certain, but I think there's something wrong with one of the servers. We've removed that server from service for the moment. So hopefully the problem is fixed. Please let me know if you are still seeing this happen.

Thank you,
Bill

An update on this. I've figured out what was wrong with the server and have put the server back in rotation. Please let me know if you see this issue anymore.

Thank you!
Bill

Yeah that was a hardware issue at our data center, our whole site was down.

Thanks,
