I haven't been able to access WTA World since early this morining Eastern Standard Time. I haven't noticed any other posters commenting on being unable to access WTA World for most of today. Any information would be appreciated.

You have not imagined.:mad:

Thanks Chris! I tried to access the WTA World, but I got one message that said something about there possibly being too many visitors to WTA World. Is that a real possibility? If so, how does that problem get corrected?

Chris
08-22-2002, 11:32 PM
I dont even get that message, I just can't connect.

the cat
08-22-2002, 11:34 PM
I'm on a Laptop. Could that be the reason I saw that message? Oh well. The bottom line is WTA World is unavailable. And it's been slow lately, too.

It takes me about 10 minutes to load each page...by the third page it tells me it cant connect...I've been trying to get on all evening. I notice a lot of the forums have no new posts, but theres still 100+ people online, so it must be really slow for everyone.

James
08-22-2002, 11:44 PM
It usually happens around this time. Its really frustrating and I wonder if they'll ever find a way to make it like it used to be:mad:

And it seems to be going on longer today:confused::fiery:

Didn't this happen to the Sanex WTA message board before it closed down for good almost 1 year ago? I hope WTA World doesn't have the same fate.

the server is no longer adequate... the site demands very powerful, very expensive dual dedicated servers

until we get them, this will continue.... we will explore our options and make every attempt to get the site where it should be performance wise, but to be perfectly honest with you, I have no idea at this point if and when it will happen

there are no plans at this time to close the site

JonBcn
08-23-2002, 12:52 AM
Poe, is it something we can help out with?

I dont know how expensive the servers you need are, but I'm sure theres a lot of regular posters who have used the board for quite some time who wouldnt mind making a voluntary donation to try to clear up the problem. I know I wouldnt mind anyway. I've been trying to post for ages and its impossible; and the situation will, I would have thought, only get worse as we get to the US Open and traffic increases. Its putting me off logging on at all.

Anyway, dont be scared to ask us if you think its something we might be able to help with; after all its a free site that has a lot of dedicated followers, and we wouldnt want to lose it. :)

just letting you know i DO realize exactly how bad the situation is... as most days, I cannot visit the site at all. In fact the only times I have been able to load a single page are at very late hours of the night here.

we are keeping an open mind for ALL options.. so I do appreciate the gesture from those of you who wish to help out

I'll let you know as soon as i know anything more about a resolution :)

hey poe,is this your site I mean are you webmaster or..

so just please answer me this if you can,will I be able to visit the site tonight,coz if not then i dont have to wait here like I've been doing since this morning.
Thanx
;)

Poe
08-23-2002, 01:12 AM
i can't tell you when the site will be accessable or not... I don't really visit it frequently enough to have learned the pattern of when it's down... i just know that during the day EST, it's almost never accessable for me

and no this is not my site I just help run it

JonBcn
08-23-2002, 01:20 AM
Heh....I thought people would be keen to do whatever's necessary to help.

NB: Perhaps elect someone other than Dahveed to be treasurer ;)

Another thing I thought maybe might help (but then I havent got a clue what i'm talking about)...I assume it would give you more server space if you removed some forums? How about getting rid of the past tournaments forums? They're locked anyway and so are only for reference, I cant imagine they get many hits, except maybe for the couple of weeks immediately prior. Or is it not a space issue, but a power thing? As you can see, I havent a clue about servers and stuff!

Poe
08-23-2002, 01:23 AM
space is not a problem and the software handles a million posts the same as 10, from what the developers tell us.

the issue is the number of people browsing the board at once. The demand has become really high... we're already on a dedicated high end server and it can't keep up.

JonBcn
08-23-2002, 01:35 AM
I see. Oh well, at this point I run out of ideas!

Its strange, because the number of people online at the bottom of the entrance screen doesnt seem to have escalated a great deal in the past month or two though, yet the performance has diminished immeasurably.

Bear in mind what we all said about cash; I'd be pleased to help if I could. We all appreciate the boards (and the work you guys do) too much to see them fade away :)

well this is precisely what has been my point during all of this.. i do not understand it at all

the scoring threads have always been there, with the same number of people trying to view them at once

all statistics show that traffic hasn't increased enough for this to be happening

but it doesn't change the fact that it IS happening for whatever reason.. so i guess new hardware is the only answer

if you have incredible patience, i think it'll take you about an hour to post once...

i'm not that kinda person... i tried, but i gave up...

oh yeah... i'm EVAspeed from wtaworld (like it wasn't obvious) :p

anton
08-23-2002, 05:50 AM
I was able to get in only once today to the main site and could not go anywhere else. Like if I clicked a thread it would not open.
I cant go there now either and it is almost 1AM CST USA.

One thing that might be an issue is maybe more and more people are getting DSL(high speed internet connections) and more and more people are clicking more threads at a faster rate like 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 in a very shot time with the DSL and that maybe just happened recently that more and more people have DSL and are clicking a lot of threads in a very short period of time and then not a lot of people can get in?

I can't think of anything else yet except maybe some more "invisible" people are on the boards. Is that an option, be be invisible?

I also want to say I miss the boards, even the "hate" ones a little. :) And Lawn Tennis Message Board will have live Venus-Hantuchova scores if you can't get to WTAWORLD, then please join us.

Hopefully the site will be back up soon as I now dont have anybody to argue and conplain with. :)

well...I think the people who run the board know how to work with their servers..I would say study those loggings, because it's clear that something is happening on the servers. Some action that causes this. Like someone said, their aren't that many users more then a few months ago.

Maybe that is where the problem lies - users are not being logged off properly so those eg. Kournikovafan13 who have actually logged off at some earlier stage are still logged on in the system. Thus there are 'virtual' users on the system in addition to actual users pushing the servers to breaking point. I liken it to when your system hangs/crashes and you try to log back in - it won't let you because to the system you are already logged in and it tells you a username and password is already in use.

I don't have a clue if what I am saying makes any sense by the way - if it makes sense to someone please say YES - it would make me feel so much better :drool:

Hi Becca! :wavey: I don't think this board will ever be as busy as WTA World. Mainly because women's tennis is more popular than men's tennis. But if WTA World continues to be as slow as it has been recently, then alot of their members will start visiting and posting here. And I'm not sure that's good news of bad news. :confused:

There's always the Tennis Week boards! :confused:

Becca, good luck at the U.S. Open! :) And remember to make a good impression of the WTA World and ATP World members that you meet there! ;)

I don't think that being logged on but NOT browsing the site takes up a lot of resources...
Poe, I too have the feeling the problem isn't WTAworld (well not this problem anyway ;)). Are other sites, ... using the same server?
If wtaworld is the problem, maybe you have to restrict the number of people logged on at the same time (if that's possible)??
Or just take Jon's money of course ;)

Ahem, may I ask one question: Last night, were you all constantly hitting reload and reload and reload and ... ?

Last night, I checked it once and it was down. I checked two hours later and it was down. I checked another 2 hours later. It was down again so I went to bed.

I mean, if the board is down all the time, am I the only one getting tired of waiting for the site to load ? If not, the traffic should decrease after a while.

Or are you all unable to exist without the board ???

Chloe le Bopper
08-23-2002, 11:43 AM

Does anyone else have this problem?

08-23-2002, 12:00 PM
I think I have the perfect idea to solve the problem. :)

All we have to do is to install www.wtaworld2.com and www.wtaworld3.com.
If the first board is going down we just go over to the 2nd one. And if that one is down we change to the 3rd one.
After a while, people have chosen their favourite board of these, because it's too tough to keep up with all of them, so they stay there. So there's only a third of traffic left for each site. Problem solved ! :D

it always happened around the same time of day

Last yr around the same time the old Sanex board went down forever.

It the New Haven event had a good scoreboard i'm sure the board would be ok now.

everyyr whenever some event is in the US and there are no scoreboards the boards go down.

Goran the joker

If the first board is going down we just go over to the 2nd one. And if that one is down we change to the 3rd one.
After a while, people have chosen their favourite board of these, because it's too tough to keep up with all of them, so they stay there. So there's only a third of traffic left for each site. Problem solved ! :D

THAT IS A GREAT IDEA! HOW about WTAWORLD.com is for Live scores only(and tournament archives), WTAWORLD2.com is for General Messages/Non tennis, and WTAWORLD3.com is for Games and Player forums. One thing I have noticed recently is an increase in the number of player fourums/games. Maybe if temporarily we got rid of all player sites and player forums, that would help.

Hingis played much better than I thought last night. Anyway, does anyone know if WTA World works yet? :rolleyes:

Antonella Serra Zanetti is down a set but up a break vs. Prusova (Antonella's serve makes Hingis' look like a weapon)
