Title: What's with the Error 504 Gateway Timeout error notices?
Post by: Condottiere on November 25, 2019, 04:56:46 PM
It's not just on one thread, but on almost every existing one I'm trying to post to... >:(

Once, I got around it by shortening a post with the removal of a paragraph, but doesn't seem to work here (http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=119437.15).

This is something which I've encountered sporadically for at least a few days now. Mostly whilst viewing threads or sending private messages (which prompted me to check if there was a thread on this error). Typically the issue occuring whilst transitioning from one page to another - preceeded with the page hanging after making the transition request, and then after maybe a minute or two receiving the error.

The issue's present on more than one system / browser (Chrome/ Firefox). Clearing the cache / re-opening the browser / switching wi-fi networks doesn't seem to make a difference. The fault's intermittent, but when it occurs it seems to consistently happen before I just give up and return to LAF after a few hours.

Oh, and I have noticed that as far as PMs go its inconsistent whether the message is sent or not. I.e. if I receive the error whilst sending the message, then check my sent mail - it may be sent, it may not be.

I tend to get the fault when I add images to a post.The weird thing is if I stay logged in that post is MIA.
However if I logout and close the tab.Then return to the forum. The damned thing is there in 'Recent' complete with the pictures.
It's become that common . That I logout automatically when the error appears.(It's not the norm but a regular if erratic bugbear that's catches me out especially when its a chunk of text and photo's.)

I just hit this error while attempting to load a new post. I was not posting anything.  Couldn't get LAF home page to load either for about a minute.  Maybe site maintenance on the cloud hosting sites systems?

I'm experiencing this too.  As soon as I put an image in a reply then it times out.

Had it with posts at times, as well as the pm's. Just to add to the above. Oddly enough, upon refreshing the site it sometimes says I was about to double post.
Also agree on the problems described above.

Er, um, and your avatar as it appears here (on Firefox 71.0, iMac, Mojave)...

...confirms what I had already mentioned here:
http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=121225.msg1519660#msg1519660

It's not really a big issue, I can do without, but I thought it should be told.

Patrice. I don't have an Avatar.

That's strange. On Chrome you don't seem to have an avatar, indeed.

On Firefox I see nothing under the name and title of forum members who don't seem to have an avatar, but under yours I see a broken link (screen picture above) and my Firefox tool, which cannot display it, says you avatar address in your profile is
http://https//scontent-lht6-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/549635_483522168343357_947985658_n.jpg (and more things after that)
But that's probably a different issue from the other I mentioned in the other link.  ;)

Really bad today - kept getting the message all over lunchtime, blaming the host.

Can't start a post in the Fantasy board, the usual 504 message, so will try again tomorrow...

January 4, update:

The topic "About those Confrontation Strohm Warriors..." (https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=121877.msg1528981#msg1528981) was posted, but I can't add a second paragraph, it's causing the 504 error, and have encountered this before. I thought I'd add the second paragraph to a second post, but same situation. ???

I've passed this onto Mark who looks after the site, look forward to his reply.

He says it's connected to an update, he's working on it now.

Cool, thanks for the info, as I'm still not able to send pm's.
Hope Mark gets that fixed  :)

Probably of no additional help, but came here to look for answers so might as well throw my own issue in the mix.

I can post a brand new post and I reply to existing topics. But if I try to edit a post or change the title, I also get the 504.

For ten minutes now, I have been trying to reply to a PM from Moiterei_1984 and nothing seems to get through : I keep getting the same Error 504 Gateway time-out notice after a couple of minutes. This is the first time I've encountered this problem as the PM system used to work fine on my end until now.

Yup, lunchtime today was total block-out and the closest I got to logging on successfully was the 504 Error message, confirming the fault was with the host.

On the PM front, it seems the bug blocks everything, including the message preview function. Oddly enough, you can still return to the rest of the forum as the links at the top of the page remain functional while the message is being sent - or rather not sent.

For what it may be worth I experienced the error a few times this morning, didn't seem to last more than a few minutes at time.
