N4G users complain of error page problems for 5 days

One of the most popular portals for gamers is a website called N4G, which aims to provide the latest news surrounding popular platforms like the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and rumors on next-generation systems. They normally do a good job of delivering the latest news on a broad range of topics, but over the last 5 days we’ve heard from a number of our readers tipping us about major problems with the N4G website.

We tested the problems reported to us, which include users claiming they could not click the “Hot Now” section, blank white pages when they submit comments, reply to posts not working, Bubble Up/Down, and those with the ability to approve news have been unable to do so for up to 5 days. It seems that this is some sort of scripting issue with N4G, and we tested the website within Firefox and it worked fine at first. We later discovered that this had been because we had their website loaded in our cache, and had not refreshed to see the new scripts, which are not working correctly. You can see the image that many links send you to above.

At the time of writing there has been little feedback from N4g and some of their users are starting to lose trust in the service, especially considering the lack of a fix for around 5 days, and there forums are filled with questions. Normally the N4G homepage, which shows the latest news above 50 degrees hotness, is flooded with news every few minutes but today you’ll see stories hours old.

Have you experienced problems with the N4G gaming website this week, and if so how are you feeling about the length of time it’s taking to fix? We’ll update our gaming readers as we find out more, although feel free to share a comment below.

Oh, and I should mention that I’ve tried setting up a new account, switching browsers, and completely clearing my history to no avail.

I’ve tried to add tags to articles that I submit on N4G and I get that same error on internet explorer, google chrome, firefox, AND safari on two computers. Also when I try to approve, I get the same error message. It’s something they need to fix immediately.

Can’t help but notice that this article was submitted and approved on N4G and was quickly deleted by the admins.  What a load of crap.

There mobile site had no access at all and this is not the first time it down all the time. You would think with all there traffic they would have someone monitor these things.
