What happened? I've tried to get onto Fluther for 4 days now?

Asked by Kardamom (28487points) February 10th, 2014

I kept getting the picture of Poseidon eating a jellyfish with a message that says Fluther is over capacity try back in a little bit. This happens if I go directly to, but today, I went on Google to ask what was going on. No luck until I found another site, called that had a question about the future of Fluther. I was able to get here by that link, but can’t access Fluther directly.

This is the Site and Question that I found that let me get on here today.

Anybody know what’s going on?

No problems here.

There is definitely something off. It was down a few days ago but still not right in some browsers.

@janbb The browser cookies and cache may be carrying the “Poseidon eating a jellyfish” and not the current web page.

I had the same problem. I had bookmarked my Activity page so I got in that way.

@Tropical_Willie Thanks I followed your advice and that worked. I also saved that other link from the other website, just in case I ever need to use it again.

@Judi I’ll bookmark my activity page, too. Thanks.

Thanks everyone, I missed you all.

Yep, I was having issues too a few days ago and cleared everything. I always forget to try that first, it’s happened before a few times. Yay, you’re in!

I asked the same question about the same problem a few days. @johnpowell came to my rescue with the following comment: Likely your cache since it is just pulling up what it was getting from yesterdays outage. Hold down Shift and click the reload button.

I did what he said and haven’t had a problem since.

@Pachy Don’t forget I am the original asker of that question :)

Are you using Internet Explorer? Someone else was having that problem. If so, switch to a different browser (and not just because Fluther won’t load).

Kardamom's avatar

I’m on Chrome, and it has been crashing every now and then for about a month.

@Kardamom Hm, strange. I’m on Chrome as well and haven’t had a single issue.
