Main site's down and here I am checking the forums

Post by Brian Peace » Fri Jan 01, 2010 8:07 pm

and cant find any clear info on what's happening and why. Dev it would be HIGHLY advisable now that your going payware, to make sure people are aware of why and when the site's down, and when it is expected to be back up. Take a page from blizzard entertainment, or from fseconomy, or from someone! Do NOT leave your customers in the dark in the future. Thank you.

Sorry for the inconveniences. We didn't plan to shutdown the website for 30 minutes, but we had some problems during the transfer so it took longer than expected.

While when the main site is down, it doesn't do all that much good, there was a notice posted that said random outages would occur as conversion took place.

All I was looking for was a quick explanation with a "here's where were at" on the forums. site's back up now and looking good though a few things aren't working. Hopefully that's just back end work that isnt done yet

- fleets arent selectable by category (example, by status)
- blackboard isn't showing any messages.

At least you can get to there Brian, I'm stuck on the main page with the loading icon. There is something on the main page though that says where they are.

I paid 2.80Euro about 3 hours into the new year via Paypal but cant see if i have a platinum account or not? :oops: .
I just looked in my profile and it says Platinum(Trial),surely if i have paid it should be Platinum( Paid) or something similar unless it will take effect after the two trial weeks. :?:
Have got Paypal reciept number if required.

Now resolved. :lol:

I think the new websites really buggy right now. :(

cant post a message in blackboard, sometimes when I am booked on a flight it's not showing my status correctly, and fleet pages are a mess (can't arrange via columns anymore) and MUCH more that isnt working the way it was on old site.

I've gone through and checked all the functions and they seem to be working. Some of the sorting tables haven't been setup and added yet because of last minute changes to the website design. I think you'll see them shortly though. Unfortunately, as with all things computers, no matter how hard you try, there will always be problems to show up.

Same for me, I can't get past the screen that i've bookmarked (my profile). When I try to go to some other section it just keeps the loading icon.
Also when I tried to enter the crew centre from the homepage, it won't do anything but give me the loading icon.

EDIT:
I've tried with both IE and with FireFox, and apparently, with firefox the site appears to be malfunctioning, i can't access anything but the Team and the Forum. With IE I can do anything i want.
Is the new site not FF-Compatible (yet)?

The homepage should work with FF, too. Maybe the old site is cached and that could cause some problems. Did you try to delete all your cookies and the browser cache on the FF?

Any trouble with the site now? I am trying to load/reload it every few minutes and am getting blank page. One more pilot from our VA is having the same, another one says its working.
