I experienced this a few moments ago only on HubPages and only while logged in. When I cleared cookies and came back to HubPages it was fine until I tried to log in. No other sites appeared to be affected, so I'm thinking it wasn't my ISP. (Although I have Comcast and they are fun to blame.)
(I'm obviously fine now, though, just wanted to let you guys know.)
I got it within the last fifteen minutes too. Also, I haven't been able to get replies to comments and forum replies to "go" either. They just keep coming up with a "problem" window that says it didn't go through. Sometimes it really did. Sometimes it didn't.
I've had it happening to me all day. It was OK at first this morning. However, I wrote a lovely hub, clicked save and I got "sorry we have encountered a problem" type message. Lost everything I had been doing, even the bits before the final splurge of writing! WAS NOT A HAPPY LAD!!
Since then I have had the bad gateway message many many many times. Have given up with Hubpages today! See you all tomorrow ... I'm really hoping the hub will be saved/restored, but have a strong feeling it is gone for good.
edit: Now having the gateway problem while just trying to post this message. Seems they are having serious issues today.
What browser are you folks using? I was using Chrome all day and no problems (just a little slow at times), even on HP. I switched to a different computer in the evening that used iexplorer and then I was getting problems from the start. It could just be the browser we're using.
You know what they say... Internet Explorer: The #1 Browser... for downloading a better browser.
I'm using the latest version of Firefox, and I'm getting the same thing. I can see the forums and read Hubs - the problem only seems to happen when I try to look at Hubber profiles, and even then it's inconsistent.
I just got that message. I went to see who someone was that commented on my hub and that message came up. I thought it was a non-hubpages user, then I came to the homepage and this forum message was on my screen.
Yes i have been experiencing this problem a few minutes when i click my profile and my account both 2 times. What is the problem? bad gateway...it will schock the readers when they click these pages and might not come again.
It's still happening with me. Then I wait a few moments and it's all right again, then I hit a page refresh and it happens again! I use Chrome. I've seen this before, but last night I thought the bad gateway was at my end, but it seems not. This is bad today.
"This problem is due to poor IP communication between back-end computers, possibly including the Web server at the site you are trying to visit"
OK to translate - the thingy that stores our stuff ain't talking very well between the other thingies - this may require the thingies to be turned on and off to clear any buggies! Or at the very least they may take them outside for a good old talking to!
Yeah, my programmer friend in LA can't stand Time Warner's DNS issues. They always tell him that there's nothing wrong on their end although from looking online, it's a widespread constant complaint about Time Warner. I think he also uses Google DNS now.
I was checking in from my iPod Touch last night to see if I had any comments to approve when suddenly I lost HP. I tried to log back in and it kept refusing as if I was using the wrong password. I just gave up since it was around 2AM and time to sleep.
zzz zzzz zzzzzzz Oh, as I was saying...
This morning everything was fine and then I saw this forum thread. The first post was around the time I was checking in. So it must have been a glitch, either with the DNS through the Internet or with HP's server itself.
Me too have been getting that messages. Now I can't log in to the main hubpages site. Its good that I can access the forum to know what is happening. Otherwise, I thought something is wrong with my account why it I cant log in.
502 bad gateway means a proxy server is down or refusing to connect for some reason or other. It really is not your computer that is at fault, though it is good to clear your cookies and cache from time to time.
Yeah, i was having this problem too. What really pissed me off was that I was busy working on a hub at the time, and I lost all my work because of that lousy 502 bad gateway thing. Oh well. I think the person who brought up clearing cookies works the best, as i just did that too, and it seems to be working just fine now.
I am also repeatedly getting the bad gateway message pop up - at random times, and usually when I try again it works okay. Also today while working on a hub I have had repeated errors - sometimes it’s not saving edits and other times it doesn’t load a capsule. Both times a second or third attempt has been successful.
edit: When posting this I got the bad gateway message at least 5 times, and was surprised to discover that it had posted!
Very weird, but for the last few days the option to go back a page no longer works if I am currently on a forum and trying to leave it to return to a non-forum page I visited previously. In fact the best I seem to be...
Tried shrinking, grab, pushing work bar to the side, TURNING THE SCREEN INTO HORIZONTAL MODE. I can't get to the bottom of your box to continue submitting a hub for your other sites. Thanks again for shortening my life...
