Forums out all evening with “503 Service Unavailable” error. Just started (barely) working now, but still getting random posting errors when attaching pics (ajax error?).

I can't seem to post, lets see if this post appears

Edit: It did appear!
I had problems almost exactly 24 hours before this outage, not sure if there is any relation.

Yup 504 in and out (mostly out) all evening. Checked the internet but it kept saying RFD is up. Strange.

I was online when the forums went down at approximately 9:15pm ET and reported it to the dev team. They were able to bring it back up in a little under an hour. Apparently it was caused by a glitch in a database server they launched yesterday. If I receive any more info on what happened I'll post another update.

Sorry for the downtime everyone!

Don't take life too seriously.
No one gets out alive anyway.

We're seeing the same thing on our side. There's some work being done on the servers but once complete, things should go back to normal.

Strange thing - I check various placed on RFD at least a dozen times each day and I have not seen that Error 503 even once.
