MERGED: SERVER ERRORS ... error message "MySQL server has gone away"

But the problem is sooner or later people will just give up and eventually the boards will die.😢

 

Even with other places to discuss cruising, I still think this one is the best, especially for exchanging information and roll calls. I really don’t want those to go away, but I’m afraid that’s where this is headed. 

 

I agree with you about the great value of these boards.  I also share your concern that this most recent set of recurring and very significant problems will drive some people away, especially given the level of frustration with the other glitches, annoyances, and loss of functionalities we’ve experienced since the “upgrade.”   I have emailed CC to express that concern and suggested that an announcement letting folks know what is going on and when we can expect a permanent fix would be helpful.

Yes, it’s a known problem, going on right now.  Please feel free to post on the thread I linked above, no reason to duplicate the discussion.

The First Time Cruisers board works.  Some of the PORTS OF CALL boards work and the Cunard forum will load but is slow.  The other boards I frequent (Norwegian and Carnival) are all dead.  I would have thought the issue would have been fixed by now because it was happening all day yesterday.

Hello everyone hope you're having a great day :classic_biggrin:  While your all waiting for the boards to come back up perhaps we should reminisce on some of the things we most enjoyed on your last cruise.  Me I'm a people watcher , I so enjoy watching the new cruisers in awe as they board that first time.:classic_biggrin:.  Oh and don't worry about cruise critic we're all waiting patiently and content while waiting for the boards to come back online.     

 

So there I'll bet you're all feeling better right about now .   Talley Ho !😜

I remember when Cruise Critic was like this about 10 years ago.  

 

The boards were always down for one reason or another.

 

Guess it's backwards for Cruise Critic now.

 

Doesn't Trip Advisor "own" Cruise Critic?  Their website is never down.  I wonder if they know.

Are we having issues again?  Nothing will load....except this, and it took FOREVER!  This seems to be a continuing problem!  Can we get it fixed?

I haven’t been able to open the NCL board since yesterday. 

Day 2 and counting. 

I’m giving up on this place :classic_angry:

I think two days of almost straight outages, on top of the regular Sunday outages, on the main boards has confirmed no Live Review for me next week on Allure.

While we are piling on..there is a pesky issue that happens  on the X  roll calls. 

 

You try to sign in and get a message you are not authorized, please sign in again  and again..  CC aware but can't seem to fix it

 

Maybe a new troubleshooter is needed to  work on issues..sad!

Last couple of weeks (when it works) forum loads and says sign in.  Before I can sign in, it reloads with me already signed in.  I always stay signed in.  Not sure who to tell.

I wonder if CC can get a refund, OBC or a future SQL credit from Oracle.


MySQL itself is not the problem. The problem is either the new forum software, operator error, hardware issues or a combination of those. If CC is outsourced then they could demand a refund from whoever is running it. Or they could be doing it in house. I doubt CC is running on a server in Laura’s office but you never know....likely the server is in the cloud. The team that Jenn has mentioned could be outsourced or in house.

That would be a real shame Andrew.

Could be if it's misconfgured.  One of my clients use it for their website and it took them a while to get it configured correctly.

I haven't been able to get in the NCL forums for two days. This happens it seems once a month or two.  Is there another cruise forum/boards for cruisers that anyone can recommend other than CC?  Just curious.  You'd think they would spend some $ and make it a priority to do a major fix,  I mean with IT and all today this surprises me that they have had so many issues with the site.
