For some reason I keep getting this error when I try to load the main site:

Server Error in '/' Application.

The wait operation timed out

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. 

Has anyone else gotten this error as of late, usually I only get this when the site is down/being updated.

Oh, so it's bring my own? Bring my own what? FUN?! - Ludichrist

Frustrating isn't it? I believe [email protected] is on it. The site's been down all day, at least on and off. Bear with us. I'm sure we'll be back before too long.

I'm personally getting a different error now. 503 service unavailable. 

I have informed Max and can confirm that he is indeed on it - in fact the 503 error likely suggests he has switched the main site off to work on it.

The bug seems to be in our Search system. Max has had to remove the search box for now. 

You can still search for bands on the site with google.

Protip: in case you didn't know, you can use "site:" in a google search to search on a specific site. So, for instance, a Google search for:

site:metalmusicarchives.com "Elysian Blaze"

will steer you in the right direction if you are looking up Elysian Blaze.

You can also use the ABC indexes or genre page artist lists. 

I've added a few artists today and can confirm the system to be working fine by the way. It's just the search that is switched off.

It's been reported to Max but you've got to remember that there is a time zone difference so it can take a while before he sees our messages.

I see the old search box has been replaced now with a new Google custom search box.

Not a perfect solution, but it's better than nothing and I do see some advantages to it. It's nice and quick on the response time, for instance, whereas I found the old search box could sometimes take a little while to call up band names, and the Google search is better for finding bands where you're not entirely sure of their name but you do know an album or song name or have a rough guess as to what their name is.

I quite like it. The only problem is that it can bring up 10 pages of results and the band your looking for may not be on the first couple of pages. I've deleted a duplicate add I made where I couldn't see the existing band. I'm back to using the A-Z listing for the add process.
