Is there more than one server running Tomcat and the Java code that supports this site? With just three people logged in, I can't complete accepting a trade offer, nor make one, without either the other person being logged off or myself or both. I've had to log in over three dozen times in the last hour and have yet to be able to accept a trade.
What kind of system can't even handle three concurrent users?
As a systems architect who designs highly-available Web sites, this is just unacceptable. Any business would be, well, out of business in weeks if it ran this poorly. I can't believe that I have to log in about 1 out of every 3 "actions" when I'm the only one on the site, but with three users, I can't even complete a trade nor play any games in the lab.
I can see that one of the reasons so few people are playing this is because getting logged off and not knowing it (I can tell the signs: stack traces of course, and "undefined" coming up as names or "NaN", the Flash default for an unassigned variable.) I've tried to get other people to play but they just looked at it and said "it doesn't work."
Is there no one watching the number of errors and maintaining the servers? Heck, I'd volunteer to help - I'm so close to finishing most of the suitcases and now trading is what I need to do, and I can't believe I just wasted an entire hour of my life trying over and over to just accept one trade w/o any luck.
Is there anyone there at all? I don't think I can take much more of this... I was so amazed when I started but I've never been so frustrated. This is why I write my own sites in PHP and avoid Java at all costs.... sigh.
