    Is it just me on my end, or is binderplant down a good bit of the time?..
    I'd say about 3-4 times a week I cant get on ...not just with one device, but any...cant get on at work, cant get on at home, so I know it's not just my service...it usually says, error code 500, or, binderplanet is offline, or something similar.
    I can even Google (binderplanet) from a free internet and it wont load up
    Just curious if anyone else has these issues..

    Does seem like it has a lot of down time, or at least times when other sights work and BP won't. I always assumed it was my side though, as I live in the sticks with only semi reliable line of sight based internet. Never really online much from in town.

    Wondered the same. Like @Gunfighter97, I live out in the country using a line of site network owned by a small independent company, so reliability is never 100% especially with constant power outages.

    Yes it comes and goes. Hard to keep current when it does. Its still a free site, so I can't complain. The old binder bulletin never went down, but it was subscription based. You young uns probably don't remember those days. Now, you kids get off my lawn HAHA

    I still use rotary phones on a landline, the number being the same one from 60 years ago.
    And yes, last night I couldn't get on BB either. My understanding is that the entire internet is being overworked by everyone "commuting" online for 'work'. Also last night, the commie takeover-plot was broadcast, and it's possible that had something to do with access to servers across the country where multiple connections had to be made.

    The issues I've been having have been long going...been that way for well over a yr..
    That makes twice this week I've had the issue..and it's usually 3-4 times a week...
    But everything else I look at on the net still works...that's what odd.....

    I would bet that it crashes because this is an older form of a message board.

    That's how we know it's the site. It doesn't bother me as this is a free site and there's only one or two folks maintaining it. Kudos to them for doing it.

    If you're seeing it down that often, I wonder if there isn't an interaction between your service and the BP software perhaps related to the signal strength or speed. I'm on almost every evening and I find it down only once every 3 or 4 weeks, never multiple times in a week.

    And I've seen on other sites people complaining of problems when using Tapatalk while none is experienced with a browser. If you are using it, try Safari or whatever browser you have when you have a problem to see what happens.

    Will second the above on tapatalk. I have had issues like that; i primarily post with a phone since it has a good camera and lots of storage. Occasionally I log on with my pc and have about 4k alerts at the top right.
