Hey guys, sometimes when I'm logged on and after a long period of time (with or without activity) and I refresh the page, I can't enter again because og some database error. Is there a way to prevent or fix this? thanks!

It's the life of PC. Sometimes they aren't that bad and you can wait them out; they don't usually last a very long time.

Sometimes it's pretty hard to log in because of that. :(. Try to wait for it. ^.^ I know it's going to work. ;)

Urgh, I don't like that very much. I can't stand not being able to log onto PC >,<
I go on Serebii.net to kill the time.

There is no way to prevent this as it just means there's an error in the MySQL database which PC stores all of it's data on. Meaning, it's the server, not you.

o.o

we haven't had one of those (not counting backup times or overall server crashes) in quite a while.. did you recently have one?

I had a database error as well. Perhaps there is too many user's online all at once but, your not the only one who get's them.

I typed an epically long post last night and then I tried posting and database error came up and I was too lazy to type it back up -_-.

TIP: Always copy your long posts before posting.

these all, at least last night about 1 or 2 am my time.. were due to the bu process and HAPPENS EVERY MONDAY MORNING (or Sunday night) AT SAME TIME and should only last an hour or two depending on how much traffic we get during the back up (see, the back up locks some tables in the db as it copies them.. and that in turn locks up http, etc..) so yeah thats really about the only regular time it'll go down

its a good time to take your break away from pc..
