    It's taking forever to bring up a thread, if it even comes up at all. Most of the time, it just errors out.

    You're not alone. I have the same issues whether I'm using the app, mobile web page/site, or my pc.

    What happened?
    It seems that our servers are acting up. Try to refresh. If that doesn't work, come back again in a few minutes.

    Bad gateway

    The web server reported a bad gateway error.

    I noticed this started for me last night, it's bad, I actually quit browsing the forums last night because of it.

    I'm sorry you're having problems with the forums. I've moved your thread to the Site Feedback & Help forum, since this problem is with the Android Central site, not any particular device people are using.

    TL;DR: They rely on a caching service (CloudFlare) to reduce their bandwidth costs, unfortunately CloudFlare isn't very reliable, so the end result is end-users don't see the content.

    I can't complain because I only read from my phone through Tapatalk so I don't know the source of the issue but often get endlessly spinning wheel when trying to open "most recent posts" or replying.

    Same here. Occasionally I get a 'Network error' toast, but mostly it's just the spinning wheel. On Tapatalk and Android Central Forums app.

    This is the similar experience I have, since I usually use the Tapatalk app on my mobile devices.

    Seems like something happens every now and again with the server. They'll right the ship.

    This. I tend to go back and forth between Tapatalk and the Forums app, because of situations like this. I've been back on the Forums app for a while. Maybe time to switch.

    Yes, I'm sorry. I should have mentioned that I'm having this issue on my PC via Firefox. I don't read these forums on my phone.

    When I have this issue using the AC phone app. I back out of the forum to the menu where you choose between the N8, N8 Accessories, and the N8 hacks, etc. When I reenter the N8 forum and where I had the loading hangup, there now is no waiting

    Via the AC forums app, if you click the image icon and try to post it fails every time. It worked for a minute but hasnt for a while. using the paper clip works but I feel like it degrades image quality.

    I'm not sure why this error affects some users/models.
