Hey,

I have been getting this error for about 10 min now.

Still occasionally happens for me too if I open too many topics in new tabs at once for me.

EDIT: Hell, I got the error message as I was replying to this very post!

I'll do a bit of maintenance and see if I can clear that up.  I've got some folks from SMF looking into it for me, so perhaps we can finally kill this stupid error...

I found a gaping huge problem in the forum setup.  I'm going to correct it this evening.  I'm thinking it'll solve this once and for all - no bandaids this time.   icon_biggrin

Ok, made some changes this evening - we should see a big increase in speed, and these errors should cease. 

Let me know if you see any more from this point on.

Yup. Got one going into this thread (oddly enough again) just a minute ago. Unlike how it usually goes though, a reload made it work immediately after (instead of the forums going dead for 15-20 seconds).

That said - the forums seem to be a TON faster now. Apparently whatever you did improved things there, or else my ISP has boosted my speeds again without telling me.

I'm also getting timeouts and browser lag when the ads load.  Might help ya track down the issues.  Main page loads fine, then the ads don't pop up, browser goes non-responsive and eventually recovers.  Only site doing this.

Ugh..  we got the speed increase but none of the timeout errors alleviated.  I'll open a ticket with SMF and see what else we can do....

I've turned down some of the more aggressive tuning stuff - hopefully that'll increase stability.

I added 100 hamsters to the existing pool and made the hamsters bigger.  We'll see how it goes from there...

Yup, sorry, but same here as well - for a few weeks now, off and on, and this afternoon again (maybe an hour or two ago, before I got interrupted by several phone calls).  Most of the times I've gotten the error messages, it's been when clicking on the link in my email that notifies me of a response to a thread I've posted in.  Next most common is on "Preview", and the rest are random.

Good Luck!   icon_razz
