Thursday morning AEST 09:08 am - server slow & when attempting to access statistics get a Server 500 error.

Yep, same here just now. The site is overall only slightly slower than normal for me, but images (especially icons) are loading significantly more slowly. Statistics gets me a 500 server error.

I'm pretty sure Groundspeak will fix it, give them some days. :omnomnom: Take your cameras and visit cities with 0 Waymarks, that's fun. We did that on weekend, two cities each with over 10,000 people and 0 Waymarks, so much to discover and if the site runs normal again, keep them coming. :antenna:

On a cold, wet Winter's morning what better to do than add a few Waymarks (hold it, two naval helicopters approaching below the clouds so have to have a look) but wait Waymarking is down. Get this message HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.


Oh well perhaps the helicopters will come back & do another fly by.

Maybe its because Waymarking.com use cloudfront.net It is a redirect to Amazon CloudFront.

Amazon CloudFront is a web service for content delivery.


Google cloudfront.net slow and see for yourself.

cloudfront.net has often problems with there speed.

I tried again visibility icons on page profile -> waymark lists...


for example

URL of icon for Payphones category is http://www.Waymarking.com/images/cat_icons/phone2.gif ... I see this icon - that's OK


URL of icon for Baroque Architecture is http://www.Waymarking.com/images/cat_icons/baroque.gif ... but the server return only message '404 - File Not Found - We're sorry, the page you are looking for could not be found' - no comment B)

To the missing icons problem - It's just a guess ...

It looks like they have had a server crash and they restored the site from a backup.

But they didn't have a backup of the icons we have created or modifyed the last months.

Maybe we should send in the new icons again.


I really hope they make better backups of the database! Otherwise our work could be lost for ever if the database server will crash one day.

the missing icons problem it's realy serious :mad:

my Grid Count for Posted+Visited is 744 of 1083

during HTML request for this page I counted 168 "404 Not Found" HTML return code => i.e. 168 missing icons/files on server :o :o


so, I'm not surprised for such miserable response time of Waymarking.com

Groundspeak is aware. Being worked on at this time.


Thx for your reply.


Maybe they can finally solve all the problems on Waymarking.com: like SPEED, N/EAST BUG etc. etc. and when it's solved PM all Dutch Waymarkers to come back on Waymarking.
