Greetings from the Telltale Games forums!

Yeah, the site would go down at around 1:15 am Pacific every night. If you were lucky, you might catch a brief window where it worked half an hour after that. Then it'd be down again for at least another half hour. After that, it was always hit and miss until around 5-6 am, with miss being the more likely. Sometimes it'd instantly give a database error, sometimes it'd just try to load for a few minutes and then give up. It was no fun for night owls and Europeans.

It exploded only during the last months. The forum wasn't reachable, reliably, at 10 AM Central European Time (yeah, that's my time zone), but usually came back about one hour afterwards. In the last months, however, 12 AM was normal and 1 PM not surprising; and when the forum came back, you'd unfortunately usually battle with a forum half asleep for another hour or so. We all thought we really needed that new forum, frankly.

I bought myself a 3DS as an early birthday present, so if anyone is planning on getting Pokemon X or Y. friend me!

I am. Will send you my code in Steam.

Mine is 5172-0772-9596. I think both sides need to add each other mutually for you to show up?

Yay, I'll throw out my 3DS code, because I can never have enough friends.

I just wish I could change my damn character name.

@tabacco

You couldn't afford a second PC for the slave, seriously?

I remember from several conversations back in those days that the TTG forum always went down when people tried to access it from Germany, roughly after the first work was done and before lunch. So, whoever was in charge for selecting the point in time for replication, especially considering the increasing downtimes, wasn't aware or didn't care much about our timezone. Maybe in a weird way the forum stayed in sync with the quality of the games.

Hah, I beat my normal habit of sitting at my computer and going straight to the telltale site. Now it's here first!

There's never been a 'downtime page'. Enough of the absurd stuff.

I think it may have been the "Oh, Crumbs" page.

I'm at the Telltale forums too, but I I don't have many posts there. I think I will check this place out. I have played The Cave, so I might like the other games too

'Oh Crumbs' was just for 404s. There used to be a friendly page that would show up while Apache was down, but I guess it broke or got removed.

"Oh Crumbs" eventually started popping up during other downtimes, usually when something broke during the day.

I guessed that might be the case, but we haven't had "Oh, Crumbs" during the nightly downtime for as long as I can remember.

I think it was still there for the main site, but not for the forums.

It fixed once you added me back.

Tobacco is probably talking about a downtime page from before any of us?

Yeah, I left Telltale in 2009, so we're probably talking 2008 or so.

I think I remember, if only because I lurked around the site since they first put it up. I tended to do that with Telltale, Autumn Moon, and Double Fine in the hope that ex-Lucas employees would one day obtain the rights to Monkey Island and Sam and Max.

I remember a Telltale fail whale page. Was that the one you're talking about?

That was the fail narwhal, right? That was after my time, since it was during Monkey Island, but I think Gary (old TTG graphic designer) did that one :)
