Ooh! I am happy to know that Brickforge does have sales. However, it is nothing that I want, so I will get nothing out of this sale. Oh well, BF will hopefully have another sale on the stuff I do want.

my best guess is this is a clearance sale and they are selling out of their brown and Dark Gray to make room for reddish brown and Dark Bluish Gray.

I've been consistently getting "cannot connect to MySQL server" errors for the past 15 minutes... Is it just because of everyone suddenly rushing the site for the sale, or is something else going on?

odds are their doing some changes since Armothe mentioned having to reduce some items even more.

site seems to be up and running with new sales logos on the items for sale.

It may be as Asterios said, but I always tend to get that error when new items go up for sale and people rush to buy things.

Yes, I had the same problem last night, and the night of the BrickCon release. I would echo other sentiments that it's due to a rush of buyers, but I really don't know.

The sql errors are a result of hundreds of people retrieving information from the database at the same time. I keep upping the number of connections periodically but tens of millions of hits per month will load up a server really quick. Will keep trying to fix this.

I have to wonder why a few items, like the dk. gray Plasma Blaster, brown Knight's Shield, and brown Dwarf Beard are full price, rather than on sale. I understand why the animals are full price, but not those items...
