I just signed up for nation builder and even though my net connection is good, and other sites are running fast, nation builder is slow (10sec) to load pages and when I try to set up my new account I get this message when trying to connect to facebook:
504 Gateway Time-out

Jim Gilliam commented 2011-08-11 11:07:02 -0700Hmm.. we are getting an unusually high number of "connection reset" errors from Facebook right now. I am looking into it. Just so you can get through the installation process, I skipped the Facebook page connection part, so you should be able to continue on in the install if you click the install link you got in your email. You can then connect your Facebook page later when this is fixed. Sorry about the problems.

Jim Gilliam commented 2011-08-11 09:59:51 -0700There is some flakiness connecting to Twitter & Facebook on occasion. There isn’t a whole lot we can do about it, those services just aren’t 100% reliable. It does impact NB beyond just when trying to connect to those services as it slows everything down a bit, that timeout error you saw is actually protection so that connecting to Twitter or Facebook doesn’t slow things down too much for everyone else.
Hitting the refresh button should solve the immediate term problem.
