RESOLVED: HP Server Down

    HP was offline for about three minutes yesterday, and for about ten minutes today between 4:37 am – 4:47 am, California time, when income stats for the previous day are usually posted (but weren't today).  Just thought someone should know about it.

      Funny smell of burning fur in here.

        Try clipping your nose hairs.

      Thanks for taking time to make a report.
      I'm not sure if there was a site outage as I use a third party service to notify me when the site does have downtime and I didn't receive a notice yesterday or today.

        You could check the server logs.  I looked at my account, the forum and the homepage – these were all offline.

      They were replacing the tired hamsters with fresh ones.

    Hmmm, I wonder how many total Hubbers there are.

      There are presently 76,955 Hubbers who have published hubs. We had twice that many a year ago.

        I can't decide if that is scary or a good thing. neutral

          It's good and bad.  Good for writers who are branching out on their own after getting experience here at HP; bad that they took down aged hubs thinking traffic wouldn't return after Google slaps.  The most experienced hubbers told me when I was new to learn patience.  I was skeptical about that, but HubPages is evolving, not devolving, so it seems they were right.

            Perhaps bad in taking down a handful of aged hubs that might get traffic.

            But most excellent in taking down tens of thousands pieces of spam or other garbage written by somebody wanting a backlink or just to vent a little and then disappearing forever.
