4NCL website

Post by Jonathan Rogers » Tue Apr 19, 2016 4:34 pm

Am I right in thinking that the 4NCL website is not working? One still gets there easily enough, but when one tries to click on pretty much anything - registrations, tables, results - the page seems unavailable?

This is what Dave Thomas has posted on the website:
Online results system - Dave Thomas
18.4.16 - Owing to an error by the server provider the 4NCL results system, including the facility for online registration of players and entry of teams, is temporarily offline. Requests for registration of players should be sent by e-mail to Dave Thomas and Matt Carr not later than midnight (24:00) Thursday. It is hoped that the service will be restored in sufficient time to permit captains to use the online system for submission of teams for the weekend.

PS Dave tells me it's the same problem as this one: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-h ... s-36080667.

I think it's safe to say that we will be looking for a new provider once the dust settles.

I just meant that is everything on the site is down, or so it seems; not just the results service. So one cannot, eg, look up registration list of other teams, which is a shame. (I mean, I am trying to remember all the GMs on the Guildford list, but who can possibly do that, eh?)

Dave will correct me if I'm wrong (except he doesn't do forums :shock: ), but I think that's part of the results system as well.

When I tried this I was offered the chance to view a saved copy which at least looked up to date from the march weekend. That brought up:

but no doubt Roger will be busy adding to the list by Thursday's night deadline as well as keeping a wild card in hand :wink:

"Earlier this week, 123-reg started a "recovery process" but advised customers with their own data backup to rebuild their own websites".

Hope this helps.

Thanks. I'm disappointed that I forgot as many as three!

Dave Thomas has advised me that he hasn't been lucky so far, and the quality of technical support has not been up to standard.

Responding to the point higher up, the thread the vast majority of data on the website is actually on the 4nclresults server, and so that's why nothing related to the tournament will appear.
