We have neither implemented a ‘new’ design nor got a radical ‘new’ web designer who has changed the look of the website to generate advertisement revenue for totalBarça. Your beloved website is currently undergoing some ‘growing pains’. As you all know, we are a volunteer-based website and all of our writers, editors, translators and web designers put in their efforts for tB while still handling other jobs or studying at universities.
totalBarça’s server is currently unable to handle the website’s traffic, which is leading to crashes and this was the reason for the downtime we faced 24 hours ago. The only way to keep the site going for now is to modify the main page to what it is at the moment. Our team is working hard to fix the problem but we also need your support and patience. Our priority has always been and shall remain the satisfaction of our readers through provision of quality content.
P.S.: The old commenting system was fraught with abusive individuals who posted off-topic and spiteful material on the site. We were fed up with the personal attacks and the idiotic behaviour of the trolls and looked into several options to weed them out. Facebook commenting, though inconvenient to some, is the only answer for a site the size of totalBarça. Please embrace it and make it your own.
On behalf of the entire totalBarça team, we would like to thank you for your patience and support!
