LJ problems again

For about 2 weeks, things started looking good for me with LJ, but the problems have started again today.

This is what I keep getting when trying to surf either my LJ, or yours:

Varnish Error 503 Service Unavailable
Please try refreshing the page. If the problem continues, please let our support team know.

Are you having problems, too, or IS IT ONLY ME?

I love LJ more than you can imagine, because it has been my home away from home for a long time, but if I continue having these problems, I'll just have to move to a new journal I became a paid member of, since you can only join by invitation, or pay, so I paid since I didn't want to wait for an invitation that I most likely would never get. I don't know how the invitation works, but I'll study it.

Since I'm a creature of habit, I hope I won't have to make the move. My playgirl journal with LJ is a Permanant account, and I have about 4 other paid accounts with LJ.

I don't want to leave LJ, but if things continue as they have, I'll have to make the move.

This is my other journal, which I haven't done a thing with yet.

No problems here. :-(

I hope you get it resolved soon!

I’m glad you’re not having this problem, because it becomes pretty aggravating when you keep trying to use LJ, and that error keeps popping up.

I’m still having the problem today.

I too have had this problem over the last couple of weeks so it isn't just you.

Thank you for letting me know. I hope problem stops for all of us who have been experiencing this problem!

Had problems a few weeks ago, but they're gone now. If you're still having problems, then I can forgive the lack of Italy.

A couple of people are have stated here that they are having the same problem as the one I'm experiencing.

By hook or by crook, I WILL post those Italy pictures just for you!!

You are so lucky, and I'm glad you aren't having the same problem, because it becomes tedious after a while in trying to even enter LJ.

I haven't had any problems for weeks now, and then only related to a few days during a publicized outage/problem on LJ's part.

My question to you is: What has the support team said to you in response to this? Hey, wait - you haven't contacted them yet? Try that before jumping ship. While it seems as at least one other replier here said they had the same problem, really, be sure it ain't on your end, either with, or after LJ support helps you. If it's only this site, or this journal, then that can be telling, but if it's any other sites or service, it ain't just LJ.

At least give the support team the opportunity to fix or explain it. If they fail at that, then by all means, drop 'em like a rock.

I stand corrected!
I just got this error, too. Now I see what it is, or what it looks like. Oddly enough, I got it once while trying to view my own profile, then once when trying to locate yours to post this update.

Re: I stand corrected!
I've done everything possible on my end to see if the problem stems from my side, but everything is just fine. At least I now know it's coming from LJ, since you yourself experienced the problem.

I've been getting the same Varnish Error 503 Service Unavailable Please try refreshing the page. If the problem continues, please let our support team know. today. Again, I had a hard time getting to this point without that error popping up.

Could you please let me know exactly where I go to report the problem? I honestly want to continue living here, and not have to go through the whole ordeal of packing up all my stuff and moving to the journal I mentioned before.

Re: I stand corrected!
Well, when I got the page, there was a link that you click on to let the support team know. If you can't get there from here, hit google, and find what I hope is an external LJ support email or page, and report it.

Having seen the page now, I'm convinced that it's not your side of things. By the vague report previous, it could have been *anything* that could contribute to it, but as a recognizable official LJ page sporting the error vs. a pop-up, re-direct, or other response, it makes more sense, as well as them noting they've heard about it and they're looking into it.

And that's just it. If it's a head-scratcher they've discovered and are in-progress working on, you get two choices: Give them the time or info they need to help solve it, and expect some regular timely updates with progress, or option 2 is to decide that even if they are fixing it, that you're not gonna wait around or take it anymore and go.

For me, having only seen the page twice (and oddly coincidentally to your recent posts here) I can blink and move on, unless it becomes a very regular interruption, and that LJ won't help or give updates to their progress.

This is what I know about the live journal issues: There's been a bunch of DOS attacks launched at them.

LJ is a huge thing in Russia. Many people there use it as a sounding board for problems they see with government and their country. DOS attacks were done to basically shut them up. And possibly punish LJ?

If this is true, I'm not leaving just yet. Everyone in the world is entitled to free speech whether or not their country approves of it or not.

It enrages me that someone would do these horrible things to LJ!

I will always remain faithful to LJ by helping in my small way by continuing in paying for my yearly paid membership on all the journals I have here. Deep in my heart, I consider LJ family, and hope and pray they will conquer all those who wish to destroy it.

I'm still having the Error issue, and will eventually start with the other journal if it continues to be as hard for me in posting, and surfing.

I agree with everything you have stated.

im not having any problems at all

I'm glad, because it becomes tiresome when you have to keep trying to post or whatever and keep getting that Varnish Error.

Looks like I finally posted and surfed without getting that Error thing.

Haven't run across any errors here in a few weeks.
Aug. 25th, 2011 02:13 am (UTC)
I haven't gotten the error today, and hopefully, it will stay this way.

I hope LJ starts working again. I have had some issues commenting.
Aug. 25th, 2011 02:15 am (UTC)
I do too, because I really love and enjoy LJ. Have you found the problem has stopped? I hope so!
Aug. 26th, 2011 09:45 pm (UTC)
I haven't had too many issues lately. I hope they get their act together.
