Site down overnight

Previous Entry Add to Memories Tell a Friend Next Entry
We are aware of the issues with the site being down from around midnight to 4am the past 3 nights. It seems we have gotten yet another mass influx of users. We will have the issues resolved by tomorrow night at the latest.

Thanks you for your patience and understanding while we work to upgrade the hardware here at InsaneJournal.
  • *waves IJ flag*
  • Thank you for all you do :)
  • Thank you for putting up with all us refugees, crashing your servers. ^^;
  • Unfortunately, I've just become unemployed, else I'd send a donation your way to help out a little with finances.

    But thanks a bunch for all the work that you've been doing anyhow.
  • Dude, you rock. Seriously. I love that IJ has someone in charge who's really here and cares what is going on, and I think you're doing a fantastic job. I might be new around here but I like what I see and I'm definitely encouraging more folks to wander in and get committed. ;-D

    So yeah. Bravo, man!

  • Thank you so much and good luck with handling everything.
  • Thank you!!! IMO, IJ is more fun and inviting than LJ ever was, even back in the day.

    I LOVE IJ!!!
  • You're doing a great job, we appreciate it.
  • *appreciates IJ and [info]squeaky!!!*
  • Dude, thank you, for being here and for everything. I'm sure you know how much we appreciate it, but I'm saying it anyway.

    And the check is in the mail, because nothing says appreciation like money. More like one perfect rose than like one perfect limousine, alas, but you do what you can.
  • Thank you for acknowledging the site was done and working hard to fix it :) We love you!
  • I just wanted to say you're brilliant. You tell us about planned maintenance when the site might be down days ahead of time and then when the site does go down unexpectedly you tell us you're aware of the problem and that you're working on it within roughly four hours of the site coming back up. Thankyou so much for keeping us informed.
  • *Adding to the love!*

    This is a wonderful new home for my journals, and I love how open and communicative you are with all of us. Thank you so much for everything you do.

    I am not a refugee... I am an immigrant! :D
  • I just arrived and I really appreicate what you're doing here. I hope we aren't causing you too many headaches.
  • Sorry that the influx is causing problems! Thanks for keeping us updated.
  • I want to add my thanks for both the excellent site and the even more excellent support and response time. You are very sweet to say, "Not putting up with us" but we are likely to put at least some strain on resources at least in the short term -- so it's worth to offset that as much as possible. Thank you, again.
  • Yes!

    Definitely thank you!

    I echo joereaves and guiltyred and so many others. It is so wonderful to have people at the helm who really listen and communicate and don't try to cover up their mistakes and screw ups, or refuse to answer, in the hope we'll forget about them.

    I really appreciate it. :)
  • Downtime

    imatwit: it never even occurred to me that the mess at LJ was the reason for the downtime. I posted twice about not being able to get in and how slow it was to log in. I guess somebody forgot to mention the mess to Squeaky and that more friends were coming to stay! Squeaky, you may have to start checking LJ just to keep up with the news and to prepare, because it doesn't sound good at LJ. What I can't understand is-do we all come here after dark? Weird, eh!
  • Yeah, I'm running from LJ, too. Didn't realize that many people ran at the same time as I did. Oops. Sorry about our, um, stampede on your server.
  • On the risk of sounding like a broken record: thank you for being so accepting of so many new users. We really do appreciate it. Three cheers for Squeaky!
  • As another new arrival, I just wanted to thank you guys for dusting off the welcome mat. :)
  • And your mass influx of new members probably thank you for being more awesomer than LJ, Sqeaky. :)
  • You're the best, Squeaky. Keep up the good work and thanks for being there for us. ♥

    Eventually I'm going to look into upgrading my account.

    M'happy for once.
  • Hello!

    Hello! IJ is an awesome blogging site!
    And I love it, but I didn't blog in it recently.
    Well, I've got a question for you.
    Will InsaneJournal ever shut down?
    Cuz I saw some of the other journal sites shut down already.
    Example:,,, and others I don't know about.
    I hope it is gonna last forever like
    Because you know how you blog alot on a site and all of a sudden, one day the site just goes down and then, BAM!! It's gone. You know the feeling? Yeah, I'm scared of that. lol. Well. Thanks for reading my message. :D
  • Yet another refugee/immigrant here :) Sorry for crashing your servers XD
    BTW, why is the text in this newspost so insanely small? Is it just my browser or something? Cause I have to squint just to see what's written...
