I hope that you and your team do get a break. Until then, your labors truly ARE appreciated.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Achronos The forums got lots better last night (you probably noticed they got more responsive). That was us patching them to fix Internal Server Error issue. The forums should be fast right now. The only downside is that you'll notice about a 1 minute delay for updates to occur to the forum listings. We're going to reduce that delay as soon as we know how much we can lower that "cache" time. There is one other major issue regarding "Service Unavailable" messages, but other than that, from here on out you should notice the forums being much better than they were before.[/quote] WoooHoooo! Now omninutt won't need to ask for his money back! *grin* ...and everyone thought that the offices had emptied because H2 had gone gold.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Blondebeard You'd be surprised the amount of work going into fixing and optimizing forums. Hopefully it's self-evident Bungie is aware of the issue and wants to correct it very badly. You'll note today things are better. Small steps. -=DRB=- [/quote] Just in the nick of time too! Nothing like an impending flood to get those ark-building skills up to speed, eh? Things definitely ARE better this evening. So far. *wink*

  • Think of ti this way: If Bungie was a normal company, they would only maintain their site enough to keep people interested and buying their games. Do you think that is all Bungie does? I don't. [Edited on 10/11/2004 10:11:41 PM]

  • The Bungie forum is slightly more popular than most others. It gets a lot of traffic, and as such the limited resources will be used up more quickly. However, Achronos is a better person to ask about the details.

  • I do believe the answer to the question of what's owed - can be answered by looking at my signature.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] omninutt i think they owe it there fans, to have at least a place that dosnt break down every hour, [i]i dont care how much traffic there is[/i].. i've never heard or seem a forum break down so many times..[/quote]They owe and you don't care to hear excuses? Time to ask for your money back. Oh wait, B.net doesn't cost anything! Oooops, sorry. [i]*flips the sarcasm switch to "off"*[/i] I just don't know how that keeps getting turned on. I've never seen a game company with such huge fan membership for their forums. While it is true that I don't have easy access to such information to make an actual comparison, the other game sites that I have been to, are typically "downstream" and offer very little opportunity for interaction. Fan-created and maintained sites are another matter, but they don't have the sheer volume that B.net obviously gets. I understand that you (as a fan) have a right to think that they owe you (and all fans) certain things. As for me, I don't feel that I am due anything from Bungie. I only have the hope (and belief) that they will continue to make kickass games. After that, everything else is gravy. Good gravy, but gravy nevertheless. Mmmmmmmmm..... Graaaavy

  • No forums with this much traffic, no matter how well funded, can operate at 100% all the time. The boards do have the occasional hiccup when reorganizing needs to be done, and temporary shutdowns are necessary when performing maintanance and updates. Welcome to the internet. Things don't always work, so you're just gonna have to deal with it.

  • Oh my God. The forums [b]are[/b] working - they're just having trouble coping under all the traffic. Bungie know, and they do try their best to get them working again. Stop being so ungrateful.
