Growing Pains again...

Too many people viewing the board as Guest, causing an overload, we are working on getting another addtional server to handle the traffic.... please have patience while these issues persist....

80 comments:

  1. Thanks for letting us know :) GG is getting so popular LOL

  3. Is there anyway you can make members a priority on the servers :)

    1. We theoretically would have to close the forum to guest access entirely, which may not be well liked... for some reason people prefer to "remain anonymous" even though you can anonymize your GG account....

      Delete
    2. Be well liked by users or just random people/youtubers? I'd personally think this was the way to go, but then I don't know that much about running this site.

      I really appreciate all the hard work you guys are putting into this, and I don't think you hear this enough. Thanks so much <3

    3. I'm not sure how it's done but I know it's possible to prioritize member traffic. I'm on another board that has paid subscriptions and during very busy times, paid subs get priority. Might depend on the server or framework? Worth looking into maybe (prioritizing members, not paid subscriptions ;) )

  4. I cant even get onto the damn website anymore...., it just takes me to this page? what?

    1. I'm having the exact same problem. What is going on?

    1. Sometime in the next 30 days we plan to have it purchased and configured....

    2. Okay, thanks.

      Delete
    3. Wait... didn't you guys already get a new server? Is this ANOTHER one or are you finally just addressing the issue now? It doesn't reflect well on the tech admin where there are constant tech problems!

  6. I was signed out every time I clicked to a new page, could the issue be users not knowing they've been logged out while browsing?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Still works on my phone.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Do you know approx. when the site will be back up?

    ReplyDelete
  9. I feel if you made it members only you would actually get even more people signing up .I think people are beginning to see these You Tubers for what they really are :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. was working for 5 mins...now nothing. :/

    ReplyDelete
  11. I had to make an account a few days ago since the board I like to visit no longer available unless you have an account.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Thank you for letting us know. Making it members only would be awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Im a registered user but your site will not keep me logged in. So I've been in guest mode for days as it was the only way to even see anything.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Just make the site user only its not that hard. Guests will make accounts if they really want to get on there that bad.

    ReplyDelete
  15. How about making it members only until the new server is up and running? Registered users should have priority over lurkers imo.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like being a guest, do have an account but I don't always want to sign in.

    1. Same here, I usually only sign in to comment or if I need to use the search feature, otherwise 95% of the time I browse as a guest.

      Delete
  17. Another one here who was logged out every single time they clicked to a new page. If this was happening to lots of regular users, no wonder you've been overloaded with "guests"! Hope you're back up and running soon.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I miss my ladies on the Sacconehillbillies Thread .x

    ReplyDelete
  19. Does this apply to YTMD too? I have an account there but every time I google the site and click the link today I end up on a blank white screen.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I can't get on the site at all, not even to login.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm another person who was continuously logged out and ended up having to view the site as a guest

    ReplyDelete
  22. has anything special happened with a youtuber and thats why there are so many guests? I remember this happening when Ingrid out

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nah, I'm pretty sure it has to do with the logging people out issue. I think there's been problems with Blogger in general today.

    3. yes Gabby/Velvetghost

  23. PLEASE make GG members only or Guests should have to pay or something. This is ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Make the threads and topics so that only registered users can see them...

    ReplyDelete
  25. It should really just be member accounts. If people want to see what it is being discussed make them sign up. I mean we were all lurkers at one point but this way people don't have to write "long time lurker" when joining in on a conversation.
    Heck I'd be be willing to pay a dollar to five a month for a membership if it meant the site didn't crash all the time. I'm not criticizing you like some people do. Just giving my opinion. Just seems like it be a smarter thing to do, especially when we get nut fans coming to bitch and then disappear or youtubers themselves will profit off of pity by using out conversations in videos...

    this site is getting so popular lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. Can no longer access site from my phone :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is getting ridiculous. Can we please make the forum members only, where new members are required to post at least once or twice in the introduction section before they're able to view other threads?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I know I view mainly as guest because it never keeps me logged in. Make a Keep Me Logged In that actually works then there wouldn't be so many guests. I only log in when I want to comment.

    1. that is true. It was good when it used to work.

  30. I feel like guru gossip has been fucked up for like 2 years now. Error notifications, extremely slow load time, crashing etc. Is it EVER going to be fixed properly????

  35. I keep getting this message "You exceeded the maximum allowed number of login attempts. In addition to your username and password you now also have to solve the CAPTCHA below."
    What does this mean and can you fix it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. By Solving the CAPTCHA, obviously.

      Delete
    2. Yes and with multiple accounts .

      Delete
  36. I see people saying banned people have been allowed to post again but I was permanently banned for no reason a few days ago and I have no clue why it's happened or how to fix it? I emailed the board admins a few times but I've gotten no response. As far as I know I was following all the rules (as I barely comment to begin with) and I've never been warned about anything.

  40. Hi. I keep getting "Error 522 connection timed out " whenever I try and access the site. Is the site having issues again?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Site really slow and keep getting an error page

    ReplyDelete
  42. Still getting error pages here as well. Can't get on the site at all. I saw that the forum now has 50,000 members. I really think there needs to have an option for only people with at least 10 posts or something to be able to access the site at busy times. There may be 50,000 members but I seem to see probably the same 50 people max that actually bother to ever post!

  44. Am getting real tired of trying to browse the forums and getting this every time "Sorry but the board is temporarily unavailable, please try again in a few minutes." Fix your site please!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Do your job FFS you are a useless piss of shit! You cant run a website! If u r so useless then quit! Assholes!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Fix your site. Holy shit. Is anybody working on an alternative to guru gossip?

    ReplyDelete
  47. This site is becoming really slow at loading, often kicks me off and gives me an unavailable message. Do your job and fix the website, please!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Fix your website! This is bullshit.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I am so done with GG. It's just a message board, get it to work properly!

    ReplyDelete
  50. fix your damn site please. is it really so hard? if yes, get some help with it?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Fix the fucking site. God I just want to view one thread, and all I keep getting is "unavailable, try in a few minutes." Fucking piece of shit. Go fuck yourselves I'm done.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Every night for 3 nights straight the board has been down. I've been gone from the board for 6 months and I see things haven't changed one bit. Fix your shit. It's not that damn hard and you shouldn't have to fix something all the damn time if you knew how to run a website.

  61. worst maintained site. ever.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I'm getting "board unavailable" nearly all the time now. Have been a regular poster for years, but just about the end of my tether with this now. Even when I can get on it's often not worth posting as I'm not always sure if the message will even show up! Is there anything we can do to help get this fixed? If all the regular posters like me also give up there isn't going to be a site left at this rate.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Left for like two months, tried to come back and it's worst than ever... Why are the guests even allowed to read the board? They're the ones who are crashing it down most of the time (that plus the terrible maintenance)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think it's not just the guests, but also a lot of registered people lurking and never posting. I've seen lots of people recently saying that they are just posting a couple of times so they are able to view the pictures on the forum. I'm sure as anything not seeing any sign of these 50,000 members gurugossip is currently boasting of anyway?
