    Sometimes I get a
    502 Bad Gateway

    nginx

    page, I couldn't find why sometimes I get it and sometimes don't, I use Firefox and use to open multiple threads at the same time

    happens for about a couple mins (maybe even less but I end up getting distracted by something else) and then before you know it when you refresh it's back up and all is well.

    But yeah bro, it isnt just you, it's all of us :)

    PS: I am using Firefox and from Canada btw if someone is going to try and narrow down what the problem is possibly cause by. (If it isn't a quick hosting error)

    Happens nearly every day to me somewhere between 8 and 9am GMT in the UK, but not for long though.

    This happens to me also. I think this happens due to regular server maintenance.

    sure is because of alot of the BHW come on line to check messages and the server gets and overwelming request for the site

    just my 2 cents

    we are our own hosting provider, we run on a dedicated server, and yes, its when we are doing backups and checking for any errors in the site, only reason it appears is because we're being pedantic to make sure no errors appear in the site at any time

    Keep getting 502 now and then too, so that's why, thanks trophaeum

    However today is the weirdest, got 502 again, logged out several times and can't do multiquote post.

    Hope the logged out thing has not something to do with someone hijacking my account lol
