Why is the Round2 web-site down?
Posted by hayes on Thursday, March 14, 2019 9:21 AM

Does anyone know why the Round2 web-site is down? All I have been getting for several days now is - Error establishing a database connection - more important, does anyone know when it might be back up again? After Revell, I do hope that it isn't more bad news.

It's up now.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Thanks for the reply, but that's odd, I'm still getting the error message - even when I try accessing it via a Google search.

Try clearing your cookiees and history. Page is up for me. P.S. It may also be your browser as they recently updated the site. It started working for me after my latest update.

Thanks for that 195X, after your reply I have just succeeded in accessing their web-site - at last! As you say, they have re-hashed the site, it was obviously down while they did that. Most times when a web-site is being up-dated there is an explanation on the screen, not this time.

I was trying to access the site about an hour ago and it was down, along with other sites that had their name in it. I’m new here, just signed up tonight, so please forgive the dumb questions, but is this a common problem with their website?

All the best, Vetteman

Never had this problem with the Round2 web-site before. I have just tried & the site is back up again, but it seems to have reverted to the old format. I guess they must have been having problems up-dating the site.

1, Welcome. 2, Dumb questions are the ones that don't get asked. 3, Yes.

The long aswer is, like everyone else (looking at you ebay!) they think they're doing the community a service by updating and refacing their sites on a regular basis. truth of the matter is, and I've told them this, we don't care about flashy, just make the site WORK!

But, every other year or so, their pages go down and are sporadic for a week or two. They also use the time to clean out bugs in the server, update the in stock listings and the like.

Routine maintenance, nothing to see here... literally. ;)

Hayes, that's a distinct possibility as well.
