Another way could be to use UJS to check if the map is working before
actually adding it to the front page, thus resulting in an interim

Kind Regards,

while I agree with some of the points, I'd like to state that the main 
page with the map is not available enough. IIRC the redirect to the 
wiki has been introduced because the wiki meanwhile is much more 
reliable than our map.

I agree the map should be on the initial page, but it is a bad 
advertisement for our beloved project if the map doesn't show up at all 
or tiles are not loaded properly due to a slow server.

Thus, can we put efforts into making the map server as reliable as the 
wiki server?

Just my two cents,
