    Welcome back HDUK

    Anybody know why this site went down tonight?
    It seems to be happening quite often.

    yeah i have noticed this ALOT recently

    i thought it was just me, thats why i didnt say anything

    Maybe we're getting too big again? I sure hope not... Admin's already had a server upgrade in the last few months.

    I also keep getting the same thing or cant log on to well.I thought it was my connection but looks like its not.Maybe more people are logging in at the same time & slowing it down?.

    Yes, but with more deals and users come too many 'conncetions' to the site at once and if the server can't cope it comes down. The problem is that getting a new server costs money and the hassle of transferring everything over from the old server to the new one. So if we are getting too big then it means Admin could be facing a lot of work.

    is it just my connection or has this site been really bad tonight? this is the first time since about 6 o'clock that i've been able to get as far as posting a message! sometimes the front page came up, but wouldn't go anywhere else.

    eBay was playing up too....so that makes me think that it was me and not just this site...

    I couldn't get on her last night but I've been on all of tonight with no trouble.

    I had trouble getting back on tonight.

    Quidco and HDUK have close ties so could we have a message board type thing on there? Just one sticky thread that anybody can post on. After say 100 posts delete the first 20 or so.
    That way new deals, freebies etc can still be posted. These can then be passed on here when it is up and running again.

    :lol: I didn't mean to type that!! :shock:

    Naughty people... :oops:

    Sorry guys. I think it's a software issue not a server one (well it causes undue load on the server) so it should be upgraded to a newer version which will hopefully solve the problem. I always think it's a good sign to have too much traffic! It's just a matter of handling it...
