    The err's been popping up for the last two days. Page A-ok after reloading. Also while I try to log in the err server connection closed crops up.

    I've been getting these on my phone last night actually. I blamed my phone.

    Now I got this myself while trying to reply to a wall post. Looks like it's a consistent issue.

    I'll tag @Shi here.

    A large number of yandex (Russian search engine) bots turned up on the site two nights ago. Might be overloading us with requests since they are constantly viewing latest content. Might have nothing to do with it, but it does coincide.

    I got it to so it must be an issue.

    Has occurred a few times today for me, we can safely assume this is a recurring problem.

    Dammit Shi.

    Haha! No blaming Shi this time. I confiscated his BBQ sauce.

    What makes this so much worse is the fact that it happened at the busiest time of the year for everyone. I don't have access to the server, so can't actually tell you if my suspicions are right regarding the stupid Russian bots. XD. Will have to wait for the lads to come online.

    We'll get it sorted. ^^

    There might be some unscrupulous activity hitting the site.

    Just looking at analytics, in order of the most visits from groups:
    1. US
    2. UK
    3. Netherlands
    4. France
    5. "******.google.com You are invited! Enter only with this ticket URL. Copy it. Vote for Trump!"

    Can't make this stuff up.

    Based on feedback and things that we're seeing on our end, we're investigating solutions and I've already done a couple of things to improve the site's performance.

    You should notice a slight improvement and less server errors occurring.

    Performance is definitely going to be my main priority for the next couple of weeks.

    Thanks for the updates.

    I bet @Shi was waxing the server last night to get those few extra kilobits.

    Go Sakuga!

    Marking this fixed for the mean time.
    If problems continue to occur, feel free to post here.

    At this point, we've done nearly everything we can without running up the costs.
