A Heads-Up On Those Bloody 504 Errors

Post by Riddick » 03-26-2020 02:09 AM

Y'all've prolly noticed a rash of annoying "504 Gateway Timeout" errors here sporadically these last some days. Dunno why we're getting them, or whether they'll persist, but I do wanna relate one thing I experienced

If you're trying to post a reply to a thread, or start a new one, and after hitting 'Submit' you get a 504 error don't assume your post or thread wasn't created.

After numerous attempts, I finally got past the 504 errors only to find my earlier attempts DID complete! THEN I had to go through the laborious deletion process, made all the more frustrating by continued 504 errors

If 504s are popping up persistently when you're trying to post at a given time it may be a good idea just to try again later eh?? Just sayin'...

Same as my experience, Riddick, but on some did not get back fast enough to delete duplicate.

Hinky server somewhere?

Note .......does it seem to happen more when trying to post "Anti Globalist Material" ?
