On behalf of Evolution, I wanted to apologize for the inadvertent site crash that occurred minutes into the open registration period.
Our site received an immediate onslaught of traffic all at the same time. Add the fact that users were uploading images, increased the “stress” experienced by our server. As a result, the servers shut down which caused our site to go down.
Our staff was immediately working with the hosting company to find fixes to get the site back up and to get registration back online. For the past day and night we have been hard at work making the fixes and today, re-testing the registration forms and payments.
Although some registrations were able to make it through successfully, we apologize again to the many that were affected by our site downtime.
Registration will open shortly.
Michael Choi, Event Director
