Seems it's been down a lot, and no mention on Twitter or notifications in the news section here.

And it's not just me - I make sure to check that much. Heheh. First rule of troubleshooting: is it me?!  Cheesy  Other people try, I run tests through downforeveryoneorjust me and other such sites, and it's down hard. 

Growing pains? Weather?  Leak in the roof turned the server-crafted-out-of-dryer-lint into mush?!  Grin Grin Grin <3 <3

Just wonderin', not complainin'!  Wink

Aw!  Thanks for thinking of us, you two!

We've got some new things in the works, so hopefully we will have some fantabulous news announcements soon! Grin

As for the down time, our apologies. Sad  It is the season of holiday nog and maybe the systems have been indulging a little too much... Embarrassed  We are working to resolve the issue.  Thanks for sticking with us through the ups and downs!

If you're on Facebook, follow us there, too.  When the site is down, we try to announce it ASAP (and/or provide silly antics to fill the time, hehe):  https://www.facebook.com/craftster

There is a newish member, joined Dec 05, who only seems to post spam.  (Maybe they have a virus) But if they are doing that on all the boards it would slow up the site a lot.

If you haven't done so already, be sure to click Report to Moderator on one of their posts, so we can delete them.
