I recently created an account on Gaia with the intent of purchasing a premium membership. Before paying though, I decided to try out the mobile and web clients. In two days of browsing around on the web client I have noticed that a significant number of map tiles fail to load. I probably have a pretty consistent failure rate of about 20%.
When I dig into why those tiles don't load, it's due to a 502 Bad Gateway which usually suggests that the backend system is either experiencing trouble or is too busy to service all the requests. Given that this problem has persisted for a couple of days now, it seems likely that Gaia doesn't have sufficient capacity to support their current set of customers. If that's the case, I'd rather not signup for a year.
So I'm wondering if others are experiencing these same issues? Also are the capacity issues a common problem with Gaia?
