So this just happened at around 10:51 PM ET on July 22 2019:
Service Unavailable

The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

Apache/2.4.25 (Debian) Server at forum.audiogames.net Port 8081
After refreshing, things seem to work, but  it sometimes pops up again.

You should've gone for the .net ...

I'm wondering if we're having another spambot invasion. Everyone, check your pms and let me know if spambots are going for the inboxes again. I went on a banning spree in my inbox but that was around 50 of them.

I even had error 500 no server available after an extremely long loading time.

Coding is fun. You can how ever only code good if you have enough motivation to do so.

Give the new devs a motivation. Don't expect to much from their first steps cause after all they are new, but give them some chances.

I got that twice yesterday, it went away, then it came back, then went away again.

I am going to admit in that case, I've got absolutely no clue what's going on.

This is what happens if webmasters are spotty with payments to hosts, or if the hosts are experiencing issues of their own. Spam the webmasters and ask them to let you know what's going on, as in let you know right now. Server unavailable is perhaps the error you should be most concerned about.

nah it isn't payment related lol, if it were, they'd cut the site off entirely, not play with its availability.

@9, Lol man, service unavailable is not "oh, payments are shotty". Error 500 is internal server error, that's definitely out of the webmasters control. 503 just means that the server was unable to handle the request, i.e.: its being overloaded or is down for maintenance. The webmasters, again, have no control over this. Payments have nothing to do with it. Hell, it could be a cloudflare issue for all we know. The HTTP status codes that you need to be concerned with are:
410 Gone (I've never seen this one)
429 Too Many Requests
451 Unavailable For Legal Reasons
526 Invalid SSL Certificate
Or, of course, anything else related to the web host like if the domain has been parked, frozen and whatnot. If its hosted on a VPS, then 502 is also one you should be awear of. (This also goes for sites written in Ruby, Perl, etc.) However, I doubt we'll ever see 502 unless something really, really bad happens on cloudflares end.
Generally, if I'm operating a VPS, I keep track of all status codes under 4xx and 5xx, as all of those are error conditions of one kind or another.

I haven't got any spam messages, but I sometimes get errors. For example, before I got a thing saying bad request.

I posted this in another topic I made but I'll mention it here.

When ever I log in, I get a 404 error so have to type the name of the website again then it works fine.

This has been happening for about a month now,. Also, I'm not sure if the site has changed but I can't seam to find my inbox.

I haven't gotten this at all now, but last weekend it was bad, I sometimes had to refresh a page several times before finally getting it, only to get an error again when going on the next link.
