View Full Version : Have you had trouble logging on to Yesfans today - 19/10/06?

A lot of our colleagues in the US and England are having trouble logging ion right now - they get a message that the server can't be reached - have you had any difficulties?

10-19-2006, 07:21 AM
I haven't and I'm at a loss to explain why it is happening to some and not to others.

10-19-2006, 07:21 AM
I'm on from Welsh Wales. No problem at all.

I just went to my AOL account and could not log on. It has to a problem with AOL> I recommend those having problems use another server such as Internet Explorer.

10-19-2006, 08:38 AM
I do have Internet Explorer and for a few tries this morning got the message "page can't be displayed" all is well now!

I'm good, here in the central time zone of America. :D

(But don't ask float_your_climb, she'll tell you I'm bad, I am so, so bad! :lol: But only in chat, ... NOT! :lmao:)

This is the first time I've been able to log on since very early AM.
It's now 10:10AM.

10-19-2006, 11:15 AM
This is the first time I've tried to log in - didn't have a problem.

i had trouble. i'm on now though. as far as i can tell. if you can read this, you're too close.

Well it appears the site was down for many folks over the last 6 hours or so. It was down for me but I see posts here the says to me it was not down for others. The issue non the less was NOT withour server. It was with the domain service that our domain is held at.

Thanks for the update, Tim.

10-19-2006, 11:39 AM
I had some problems getting in just before, but I kept trying and I got in.

10-19-2006, 12:05 PM
yep. I had that problem. This is the first time in 15 hours that I could log in again. 15 hours without Yesfans is on the edge man. ;)

10-19-2006, 12:09 PM
I had some problems but no messages, nothing.....just went blank each time I clicked on the link.

I think it's just Tim's way of preparing you for the imminent announcement that the band is breaking up ;).

Think how you're going to cope when that one breaks :yikes:

Of course I am only kidding . . . or am I? Double :yikes:

10-19-2006, 12:31 PM
Had trouble logging in last night for a bit...can't remember exactly what time it was.

10-19-2006, 12:40 PM
No. Thanks for asking though.

10-19-2006, 12:47 PM
I couldn't log in,

kept getting server not found message most of today.

tried posting a message on yesfans keeping in touch page but that did not seem to work either,

Oh well, :D

10-19-2006, 03:05 PM
Huuum, no one else was down??

10-19-2006, 03:11 PM
I couldn't get on at work which was at 1PM UK time so it was approx 6 hours ago so I suppose that explains it.

10-19-2006, 04:11 PM
I could not get on the site starting late last night till I went to sleep at about 2:00 am eastern U.S. time. Did not try when I woke this morning so I dont know how long it lasted.

10-19-2006, 04:33 PM
I got that same Page Cannot Be Displayed cr@p this morning, too..But if you can read this, all is well now!

10-19-2006, 04:36 PM
I was able to get on at home, but not at work for a while.

10-19-2006, 04:40 PM
There were a few times yesterday where the pages wouldn't load and my posts took a while to send.
Some posts didn't send at all and I had to do them again.

Then last night I got a database error notice, but that only lasted for about 5 minutes.

I haven't had any problems today though.

10-19-2006, 05:11 PM
No problems here...

Couldn't access the site at about 1.00pm today (UK time).

At that time I checked the 'yesfans.com' domain name details - it was missing it's name servers, hence the access problems only some people experienced.

I couldn't access yesterday using Firefox on my home pc or IE from work. I was out last night so 24 hours worth of postings to scan!

This is why we were down...

Thank you for your inquiry.

On 10/18 dotEarth processed an upgrade to the .com/net server which
unfortunately resulted in the temporary loss of name server settings for
some domain names. Name server settings have been restore on all domain
records, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Best Regards,
