    It's been happening to me too, multiple times a day. I've gotten them here and there in the past but recently it's been a lot more.

    No ideas on why or what to do about it from me, I'm not savvy enough, it just is frustrating.

    Same here.

    Very annoying when I have the energy to finally respond to a couple of threads and the site is down, then the one time the site is up I don't

    I was stuck this morning as well, server always busy, and then when I finally was all YT'd out and checked it was up & running!

    ETA: I wonder if setting "anonymous" and/or spidering activity to LOW (if not zero) priority over registered activity might help?

    It might be worth a try, anyway!

    And yes, I've been getting the same message a lot lately. It's always disappointing!

    Yep, experience this a lot as well. Also lately whenever I google Long Hair Community and click on the Forums link it sends me to Articles and then I have to go back and click The Mane Forum and redirect to discussion forums from the drop down..

    Anyone else have this problem?

    It's quite a bit these last few days, I'm noticing again. It was better there for a while, but... yikes.

    I am also noticing this multiple times a day. I've only become more active in the last week or two so I can't comment as to its frequency compared to the recent past, but it seems pretty often now.

    I'm not experiencing any redirect strangeness, but I usually go straight to the forums link at https://forums.longhaircommunity.com/ (and I stay logged in on my browser, so I don't have to log in or click to any other pages to go to the main forum screen).

    That shows up as the articles page, for me.

    Oh, I just tried and paid more attention and it's also going to articles for me. I can't remember what page I'd normally land on.

    Going to:
    https://forums.longhaircommunity.com/

    Takes me to this screen, which is the "Articles" tab:
