So, any time I try to access the forum or even certain pages on Anime News Network, I get this 503 error message:


Anime News Network is temporarily unavailable due to maintenance. Please try again later.


However, this has been happening for weeks if not months now. I have also noticed that all the articles still get comments on them, so why is it that I am unable to access the site? I even tried to log in and still I get this message. I doubt I was banned since I haven't been on the site in months and rarely post anyway, and if I was banned, I would've had a message saying I was banned. So, I think it's a whole other issue. I can't even find where to contact the webmaster or the admins of the site anywhere. Do any of you who are also on Anime News Network know what might have happened and does anyone know if it will end? I don't want to end up never using ANN again if I can't even access much on their site. If that means I have to only use Crunchyroll News for any current anime news, I guess it's ok. I've been meaning to check on Crunchyroll News more often anyway but never seemed to remember to come here. (sorry fam )

If anyone could help out even if a little, that would be great. ^^ If nothing else, I can just come here instead to discuss any anime related stuff and catch up on anime related news. :)

I had this issue accessing ebay a few weeks ago. I tried all my tricks to get on and got nowhere. I eventually had to hire a geek. He said I had a weak link. He upgraded some things, re-jiggered some things, and bingo, I've been able to access ebay ever since.

You might been experiencing a similar issue with your computer but I don't really know 100% your problem.

Which web browser are you using? As a first step I'd install another browser and see if that fixes things.
I had the same problem with Firefox and Crunchyroll last year but I fixed it be resetting my Firefox profile - something must have become corrupted in the settings on my computer.

I don't know if that would be the issue though Thanks though :)

I forgot to say that, whoops! Sorry! I use Google Chrome. Aw, you mean Firefox would have this issue too? Hopefully not because I was going to try accessing it on Firefox (which I have) and see what happens. Thanks for the help! :)




UPDATE!


I went to Firefox and I am able to finally get on the forums on Anime News Network! Looks like it's an issue on Google Chrome.

Although, I just now checked ANN on Google Chrome and I can get back on the forums again. O.o *so confused now*

Anyway, hopefully that's the last of it. If not, I could always come here to CR more often, right guys? ^^
