Lo,

Why is it this website is always down for maintainance? I've never come across a website that had to be taken offline every day.. Now the game I could understand, but the website? Can't the forums etc be maintained once a week?

This maintainance does not seem to be doing any good, on nearly every single thread I visit I get the following messages:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80004005'

[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

/include/messageboardFunctions.asp, line 554


Only after waiting and retrying again and again do I finally get into the board... The same infuriating error occurs when posting :(

I suspect the site is on one of the game servers. It seems to have problems when servers after restarting after downtime.

Assuming that is true then imho it would be a bad thing to do. The webserver should be running on its own dedicated server. If a mass of people hit this place to browse forums etc it shouldn't impact the game.
