Why is the site down so much lately? - August 8th 2012, 12:53 AM

The title is self explanatory. The site has been down A LOT lately and it's driving me nuts. What's up?

Im not completely sure but i think the server just keeps crashing. It's been driving me nuts too. Hopefully it will be fixed too.

Lol, me too, I just can't imagine myself for not having an access here for almost two days :O I'm glad that it back to normal again..:P


No matter how ready you were, surely you'll get hurt when something happens was unexpected to you, even when you say nothing at all.

There are a lot of things you can discover about something/someone but even only few is enough if you have a better understanding to know what's behind those you already knew...

As long as you have a heart you can love, but you cannot love unless you did it with your heart.

Hey there,

First off I just wanted to say sorry for the site being down, I know its inconvenate but feel free to checkout our facebook page which can be found here when your unable to join. To be honest I don't have an accurate reason as to why the site goes down it could be due to several things really depends on where its hosted. If its privately hosted that could leave it more vulnerable to outages.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! It is actually the site that is the problem, the server. I thought my laptop was the problem and it is tempting to get a submachine gun and shoot all hell out of my laptop because nothing would come up, but now that I know it the site that is the bitch, it is less frustrating.

There is a Tumblr site which provides an alternative when the site is offline, I can't remember what it was called. It was in a thread Robin wrote named When TeenHelp is Down on this forum, look it up.

This is a free website. So complaining isn't nice. Be thankful that the site is up.

Too much downtime is a valid concern though, especially given the nature of what this forum is used for. It's an unfortunate fact that downtime drives away potential members and members alike...guests come here from Google seeking help with very serious issues in their lives and if the site won't load, they click away and look elsewhere.

Also, expensive as some of the paid subscriptions are ($100/year for the deluxe, for example) combined with ad revenue, I would think should be more than enough to cover the costs of finding a proper web host with minimal downtime.


Feel free to leave me a VM anytime, I don't bite. :3
