Unfortunately, yes. Often, the metaserver itself (platinum) is down, while
the WWW server reporting the results is working normally. The result is a
stale report. This may last for 48 hours or more; I don't think the
maintainer plays Freeciv anymore.
If the #freeciv channels weren't empty most of the time, they could be used
to synchronise players. Also, the new WWW pages are supposed to contain
an announcemnent board.
