Here's the response from mluka in the general forum.
I posted there cuz I didn't look and see there was a separate ladder forum.. lol oops!

To worsen the situation, I am absolutely swamped right now. I'm considering, rather than looking back and fighting the bugs in this old version, pushing out the new version, which is less-than-beta quality. If I can count on getting consistent user feedback - preferably more of the "this feature isn't working because of xxxxx" or "I was expecting xxxxxxxxxx but experienced/witnessed yyyyyyyyy" rather than "fix this $^%#$$%" - then that will be the way to go.

That would likely hasten the return of the team competition as well, but I must emphasize how buggy it will be in the early going for both ladders and teams if we go this route.

Thoughts?

We're back online and I cleaned out some of those old challenges. That's not to say it's necessarily issue-free. Hopefully it's robust enough to stand on its own for a bit longer.

I'm afraid it's still "Unavailable", at least from

.NET Applications

Postby sonrisante » Thu Mar 04, 2010 1:28 am

I notice the .aspx extension, which implies a .NET application. Sometimes .NET applications are slow to load the first time, since it's initializing the entire .NET framework and loading a lot into cache. Sometimes websites even time out.

I just loaded the page and after about 30 seconds I got the correct ladder screen. I bet I'm not the first to use it today.

My suggestion to users: if you receive a 503 or something like that after a while, wait another minute or so and then click the link again (not refresh). It may load the second time.
