Apparently Brickset is more popular than ever...

Please wait a moment and try again

    ^ I saw the same message. I think the load might be across all Vanilla-hosted forums, although Brickset does continue to grow: http://www.brickset.com/about/stats/

    It seemed to be coming up for every other link I clicked on last night, but the same on another Vanilla Forum I use.

    Yeah, saw that too. It seems an issue with Vanilla Forums, not Brickset, as others have said.

    There is supposed to be a limit to the number of concurrent users to the forum, although I'm not sure what it is. I suspect we could be passing it at this time of year.

    It appears Vanilla's servers are having issues, is just gave me an error with trying to do anything but read discussions (logged out) for some time, wasn't updating the discussions page, and then became wholly unresponsive for a while. A least they're acknowledging the issue now: http://status.vanillaforums.com/
