    Hey everyone. Is anyone else experiencing some downtime with this forum? Numerous times I am getting a "Bad Gateway" error and sometimes the site doesn't load at all. Sometimes I would type a comment and when I go to submit it, the site is dead. It doesn't load and I get a "page cannot be found" error. I can't even browser and read the threads properly because of this. Anyone else on the same boat as me?

    I thought there was something wrong with my computer so I tried a few different devices, even tried using tapatalk but its just too flaky. I hope they address the issues soon.

    It doesn't necessarily mean BHW is getting attacked guys. It could be just the massive amount of people who go to this site cause errors.

    I remember them saying they were working on some new things for the forum. Probably just implementing them.

    As DD announced earlier,this forum is going through various changes and hence it is going down.I think we shouldn't complain about it being unstable lately but should spread our support hand towards the team.
