    I rebooted the server this morning. Not sure why it was down, I'm still working my way through the process.

    My tired eyes/dirty mind just read the title as Erotic Forum Performance.

    Hey all! Have you noticed in recent nights the forum disappears again? Although it doesn't seem to stay gone for as long as it used to. @Ome

    It seemed to come up moments ago after being down 10 or 12 hours.

    Anyone know whether this issue is common on XenForo software (what's at the bottom of the page as the template for the forum), or whether it's the actual server hosting?

    I assume the forum was screened for unpatriotic posts, nothing to worry about (unless you posted them).

    I'm on https://www.trekbbs.com/ which is XenForo as well. Never saw that one down. I'm on about 20 other forums, one or the other tends to be down for like 5 minutes or so each night same time, possibly for backup reasons.
    None of those ever had the amount of downtime that soapchat has.
    And it's down regulary since i joined it more than 10 years ago. I'm sure most of you rememer that good, old "Database error"-screen from those days, that we had to watch for hours and hours before we could log in again. ;)
    So it's a very old, annoying issue that has never really been resolved for good, so i assume it's still on that same old, shitty server, which even seems to be responsible for the whole content loss of last year as well. :re:
    We got tons of "explanations"and excuses, but nothing really ever changed. Quite emberrassing.

    Soapchat has just been 6 hours down with just this text appearing:

    "An unexpected error occurred. Please try again later."

    It went down just as I was going to sleep. I tried the usual reboot server which didn't work and I was too tired to get into a conversation with anyone. I had hoped it would be back within a few minutes of the reboot but no luck. I raised a ticket this morning and by magic, it reappeared. I've kept the ticket open to try and understand why this is happening around 1am (UK time)

    I can't concentrate on movies or tv shows at nightshift.
    But i would have loved to read through some soapchat threads.
    So thanks soap chat, you've made my nightshift very, very boring ... once again! :mad:

    Time well spent, Willie. :yep:

    The performance in that theme is erratic and erotic in equal parts.
