Exclamation Couldn't get to my private messages

Hi all,

I just tried to reach my private messages and got this screen:


Quote:
There seems to have been a slight problem with the Discuss Cooking database.
Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists.

We apologise for any inconvenience.


I tried again a few minutes later and got the same thing...Is anyone else experiencing this right now?
I'm sure it's just a system thing that will pass on its own - no worries

Hrmm. There seems to be a problem with the database - I'll let Andy know about it. We are not doing any upgrades at the moment, and there is a chance we might be down for a bit... sorry guys.

It is an utterly and completely hair pulling, nerve wracking, fist clentching moment when you go to your website and it is down...especially if it's something serious (more than a little system issue)...In which case pillows may be required to scream into!

I was having the same problem with PM's, but I just tried again and was able to get in. Hopefully the problem is now resolved.

Yikes, there seems to be still a problem, I could open my pm but when I wrote a reply and sent it I got the error message... does this mean my reply was lost, or did it get sent to the intended destination anyway??

We are still having problems, so there's a good chance your reply was lost. I would wait until tomorrow and reply again.

Sorry.
