Since we now have a place to talk about turn based servers, I will start us off with the question that got this forum created: What's happened to OGS, and when will it be back?

Now I get a different message when I try to access the site:

Could not connect to DB: Too many connections

instead of:

Bonjour,
Un problème technique sur un de nos serveurs nous oblige à bloquer tous les sites.
Revenez plus tard.
Désolé pour le désagrément,
L'équipe technique de nainwak.

Alas, OGS seems to have gone away again as of a few hours ago. One hopes its masters are aware of this.

Indeed :(

I'm afraid I have no idea why, and haven't managed to get hold of Damien...

Online playing schedule: Every tenth February 29th from 20:00-20:01 (if time permits)
It was renamed: the Offline Go Server.

This is the longest that I can remember it going down without some kind of information. Sad day.

It is up now, but most of my games timed out so I hope they are still working on it.

Yes... back online now, but hopefully the admins will adjust the clocks. One of my opponents timed out -- I won't claim the win, of course. That was a long one, I must say. Probably worse because it started on a Friday.

Edit: I wistfully recall a time when topazg was a lowly Kyu player and spent his time keeping OGS alive and well.... Extended down times never happened back in those days. :)

How do you not claim the win?

Well, the OGS admin has already added time to clocks and restarted the timed out games, so I can't confirm this, but: As I recall, when a player times out, the OGS system waits for the other player to claim the win. (I'm a bit uncertain because I think maybe this doesn't apply to tournament games.) Anyway, this allows the "winning" player to use judgment about the timeout -- maybe the timed out player has always been very prompt, so you think something may be preventing him/her from getting online.

In this case, I saw in my games list that my opponent's remaining time was "Timed out". But it was still in the game list, not removed, as it would have been if I won. So, I left it there, given the 3-day down time.

Poor OGS seems to have disappeared again today. (As far as I can tell, anyway.) I was able to log on earlier, but saw some bad behavior while I was there, now I can't even get the home page. Poor OGS. If it were based in the U.S., I would think that maybe it ate too much turkey and sweet potatoes yesterday.

Oh, I expect it will come back at some point. Once it does, I'm thinking of starting some threads on the OGS forum itself, to get going a discussion of why this is happening, and what the OGS community can to to improve the situation.

Sigh. I don't suppose we could get it hosted in the same place as lifein19x19?
