It's getting worse... I now need around 30 minutes *per translation* because of multiple 503 / 504 / too many db connection errors. This is very frustrating. Also, this now also happens during the day for me, so doesn't seem to be a time where it's actually working well.

example:
https://www.thetvdb.com/series/drone-ra ... easons/all
https://www.thetvdb.com/episodes/savetr ... ns/6663679

One more annoying thing caused by the slowness and errors is that some of the episodes get added twice, which messes everything up... it's really starting to get frustrating now.

Is the site offline for good?

I have been trying to get onto the site, on and off, for almost 2 hours and all I get is that damn 503 Service Unavailable message.

Sorry for my bluntness, but are you actually checking anything?? This has been an issue for months, and has also been an issue before the upgreade to v2 or the now renamed v1.5 site.

Out of the blue, i would say they are testing something. The behavior of the Site change every time. I try to see the Best of it but it is frustrating since a longer time now... I´ve added someting 6 Hours ago, now it´s only 503...

YO! Yeah it's getting worse and worse, have no more access to anything, it's slow slow slow, errors in shooting, duplicates etc etc etc!
at least communicate about what's happening, close the site the time it takes to do your manip and re-open when it will work again!
it will be easier!
thank you

Yeah, it took me minutes of constant refreshing to add three episodes of a show. Not a user-friendly process.

I'm actually probably in the minority that likes the new layout, but the consistent downtimes/overloads/whatever they are is pretty darn frustrating.

Is it a funding issue? Like there's not enough bandwidth for all of us at once? Or is this just a series of bugs?

I guess it doesn't really matter, as there's likely not a ton the handful of us here at the forum could do for either, but it'd be nice to know.

I have been trying to add a new season to a series and episodes for two days and have only got as far as almost adding the season before the time-out.

I have tried early morning, late at night - makes no difference.

I can understand all web sites having issues but what I cannot fathom is why there has been no "official" explanation anywhere regarding what is going on.

Every time I attempt to login to this site it is down. Is there another site with the same/similar content that is more reliable?
