Too many days of "Not Found your brother from another mother". When I do connect any NZB I try is another not found. I join another group but kept my hopes up for Usenet Crawler but, but I'm wondering will it get better..

While I understand the recent downtime has been annoying, I'm not quite sure what you are on about. The site has not been administered for nearly ten months, now that there is activity again there seems to be some sort of expectation that it is is going to get sorted in a few days.

Fact is this site has to deal with an administrative backlog (1.6 million releases that need processing) is moving massive amounts of files from the old to the new environment in lieu of the load issues the site was having and all of that while it is still trying to keep up with over 700+ binary groups on an hourly basis.

That said, I can assure you it will get better, just hang in there :)

i would go so far as to say that it goes beyond expectation, it's 'demand'. i find that particularly unfair, as i did when some posted on here about the supposed declining health of admin and speculated some nasty things.

give the guys time to work ffs. it's fucking free. it's the best indexer. so be patient.

@Megatron No I don't have expectations that the site is up to date. As a fact I see the delay and I accept it. What I'm saying is I'm getting more unable to find your web page your brother from another mother with a pic of fat Kim Jo Um. Its like the site is maxed out by user's online or something. I have been able to see the site is close behind other NZB sites but only by minutes for TV series, that's if I get on. I really worry about if I click when I'm in I'll get the Not Found again.

Ps. Really glad the site is making it's way back and with the new logo image.

@quarkienette How the fuck do you think I demand releases, my comment was only about not even logging onto the page. I've read the post about the admin's health and I offer all the best to him with my patients. I was hoping someone had there version of not getting onto the site.

btw I'm a paid vip so stick your free site I don't look learn listen or leach...

@Cert: First off your small donation you probably did over a year ago doesn't entitle you to dick. You just happen to be given a few perks for your selfish gesture.

With that said, you should never count on this site. The admin left a few times before and there is no questions in my mind he will leave again once he get more donations. Until that day comes, enjoy the site while it lasts because its the best when it runs.

Get the brother from another mother (now holy cow, BFAM) msg all the time - almost to the point I cant do anything with this site most of the time - this is just clicking on the main headers at the top i.e TV - HD, Audio - MP3, Books - Ebook. Not using any API's, just browsing and clicking. Even get the msg accessing the Forum part from time to time. Not sure if it's load or what but has not improved since the site came back.

There may have been some excessive 502 errors the last hour or so, we are currently making some alterations to the storage platform.

Getting the 'holy cow' every day almost every few minutes across the board - I can;t be the only one but not seeing other posts reporting the issue?

The 'holy cow' page is a collection of various 50x errors that we are addressing at the moment, this morning we have rolled out some more changes that should reduce the number of 50x pages drastically.

Thanks for the hard work - getting more of those msg's than being able to select any page to view

Guys it's important you come on chat and tell us there. We are all looking at source code and cannot check every aspect of the site. We had a very rough transition to say the least. The new servers do not perform as well as before and we've had to disable functionality to keep the site online. As you all have noticed it is getting better, but if you guys would just tell me on chat if a page is broken instead of posting about it here all day it would have been fixed way sooner.

For instance I just notice search has been broken for at least 12 hours as I'm moving releasefiles indexes. Fix is 30 seconds for me. Just defaulted the search to releases only. TELL US ON CHAT ;-)

I got here the same way actually. I was looking for something for a buddy, something pretty obscure, it wasn't on NZBGEEK or any of my private trackers, but I come here and BOOM not only is the site up, the thing is here! Downloaded, re boookmarked the site and rejoiced. Love you usenet-crawler!

I wanted to get back to let our admin's know that the job there doing is outstanding. "Kudo's"Since posting this thread the situation has turned around 100% & I've personally have had 99.5% connections in the last few weeks. Always counted on Usenet Crawler, never abandoned here while it was a little rough. Thanks admin!

@cerf: Thanks for your feedback. It took a little indeed but we are starting to get in better shape every day! PS. The site will be down for half a day later this week for some further upgrades (It won't be down due to instability).

@sycioath1916: He is, we just decided to rename since there would be more people with the 'admin' role and wanted to prevent future confusion. Optimus Prime is still your OG ;)

I used to be able to get into the chat, but its been broken for weeks.

All I get is ... horizontally rotating which never does anything else.
Tried different browsers, even different VM's (Virtual machines).

Deleted the cookies

No difference.
Hmm further testing opera could open the site with a security warning.
Further testing enabling Indexeddb before opening the chat site worked. That was shut down for security reasons, unfortunately its an on/off thing can't white list specific sites so will have to toggle it manually each time. (Adding a note here in case anyone else runs into the issue).

API keeps failing for me from Sonarr. :/

Can you please be a bit more specific? When does it fail, which version of Sonarr are you running, what platform are you running on etc.

Does anyone actually still use this site? Sonarr api connects haven't worked for me in some time and I just did a keyword search for "star trek" and got no hits...

Sure they do. I've returned to it after a while away due to issues and have found that when it's working well it's better than the other sites out there. It's not back to where it was yet but it's getting there. BTW, I just did a search on Star Trek and came up with 200+ hits. Did you limit your search categories?
