    I cannot tell what sort of situation you are discussing here. Could you give us some more details?

    Is this on an iPad or iPhone? I think it is the same intermittent issue mentioned here:

    https://forum.cosmoquest.org/showthr...-forum-outages

    Anyway, using an iPad on this site you can get a message sometimes that it “cannot decode raw data”. Windows gives different messages, but it happens when those database errors come up.

    It just happened to me again. Is it an issue on my end, a problem with the site or is it an admin who takes the site down to delete posts that do not fall under standards?

    I wonder how many of my posts got deleted, well at least I was able to see pictures of Trebuchets new house on another forum.

    The problem seems to be completely or mostly at the CQ end; though we don't know exactly what yet.

    It has nothing to do with deleting posts; the only posts that are routinely deleted are spam, and that has no noticeably effect on general users.

    I am getting "Database Error" quite a lot, seemingly at random - not sure whether this is the same thing.

    Not using a mobile device, for what it's worth.

    I expect it is the same issue that has been occurring for months. I get it off and on too. I didn’t see it for some time, but have seen it more in the last few days.

    I hope it isn’t a failing hard drive on a server, or if it is, I hope they have backups.

    Out of curiosity, is anyone not using an iPad or iPhone (and probably the Safari browser) ever seeing “cannot decode raw data”? Is it always “database error” or hang ups?

    I am almost always using Chrome on a PC (Win 10) and I have never seen "cannot decode raw data". I have not seen any increase in "database error" which does pop up from time to time, but never enough to cause me trouble. I just hit reload/refresh and it almost always loads fine.

    Chrome on Windows and have had the database errors on and off all day long, though they usually only last a couple of seconds.

    I don't think it is a browser thing.

    Just had a bit of trouble trying to post something, system froze. I don't think it's my computer laptop or browser.

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone. I expect the “raw data” error message is specific to iOS, maybe specific to Safari, but I was curious if maybe it wasn’t. It only comes up sometimes for me. I see the ‘Database error” page from the site more often.

    Hi Gillian. Are you talking about the “raw data” error alone, or do you mean you also aren’t having hangups and seeing the database error message?

    If it is all of them, then perhaps you aren’t accessing the site often? The number of database errors and hang ups has really increased for me recently. I hadn’t noticed them for a long time when Sinbad started the thread, but that has changed.

    Usually the hangups are just short pauses, but sometimes I have to wait a minute or two and reload.

    Incidentally, had another database error posting that message.

    It’s really bad today. I wouldn’t be shocked if there were an extended outage before long.

    Ok, if I could offer an observation. Just moments before this happened to Roger, I went to the Community tab and clicked Members and attempted to sort by posts. Then I got the same error in Roger's second picture. Is there any possibility that something is running (like a user, or some sort of query) against user info which is killing the site's performance to the point of errors? I believe that the top level domain is connect to forum user names for the citizen science stuff.

    I suppose it could be a coincidence, that I happened to be on the site at the same time as Roger and saw the same thing for different reasons. I just think user data is helpful when sorting out glitches.

    Curiously, since posting to this thread, now I am getting a "Database Error" much more frequently both at home and at work!

    I have had a few in the past few days, and they usually clear up in seconds or at worst minutes. Go figure.

    I am having no problems at all, but I only check once a day of late.
