Is Anyone Else's Site Down Today?

Posted by: Stuart Engel on 01/23/2013 - 8:45 AM

My website...ie, stuart-engel.atistwebsites.com is not working today.When I checked last night it was fine. When I woke this morning it says it may have moved or tech difficulties. Wondering if everyone is experiencing this?
Thanks,
Stuart

I just checked my website and it says the page cannot be displayed. I am like you Stuart......I was on it last night and it was fine. I am not sure whats going on

MINE IS DOWN as well!

 

Posted by: Janelle Oliver on 01/23/2013 - 8:51 AM

Stuart I tried to check your page as well and it isn't up either.

 

Posted by: Jen TenBarge on 01/23/2013 - 8:53 AM

Mine is down too.

They all seem to be down. At least this is up. I am sure they are working on it.

Mine too. The router took a nap I guess? ("nap" is a nicer way of saying the usual term :D )

This is killing us. How many people will be turned off by this today. I How many customers will we lose? This is happening way to much!

This really stinks...I just gave that link to an interior decorator yesterday...

Mine's down too. I was considering advertising on Facebook soon. I'd be really annoyed if I spend money advertising the link and then it is down.

It's interesting to note that the statistics page for artist websites is reporting that the top artist websites are receiving between 1 and 83 visits in the last 5 hours and most of the big sellers are missing from the tallies. That's notably lower than normal. Since last night I've been seeing a dropoff in views for my portfolio page as well.

Yes, mine is down, too. It's 9:50 as I write this. I see the first post is 8:45, so they've been down at least an hour now.

Edit: I just noticed another similar thread started by Judy Kay, and the time there was 7:12. So it's actually about 2 3/4 hours as of this writing.

 

Posted by: Janelle Oliver on 01/23/2013 - 9:54 AM

I just advertised on Facebook last night.....I really hate to think ppl are trying to view my images only to get an error message. I am almost sick over this.

 

Posted by: Thomas Woolworth on 01/23/2013 - 9:54 AM

My is down also. I was just getting ready to send a client the link when I noticed it. Bummer.

 

Posted by: Dan Carmichael on 01/23/2013 - 9:57 AM

Oops, just noticed yet another thread started at 1:12 AM. So as of this writing, it appears the AW websites have been down almost 9 hours.

 

Posted by: Heather Applegate on 01/23/2013 - 9:58 AM

Mad face... just started a FB ad campaign as well just to experiment. Guess I'll stop that immediately.

 

Posted by: Shawna Rowe on 01/23/2013 - 10:11 AM

Same here.

 

Posted by: Rich Franco on 01/23/2013 - 10:12 AM

Still down and looks like the "search engine" still hasn't been updated too!

What Happening Sean!!!

Dead as dead can be.
Very frustrating.

 

Posted by: Rose Anderson on 01/23/2013 - 10:16 AM

Me too. Yikes.

same here - already wrote to the technical support...

 

Posted by: Dan Carmichael on 01/23/2013 - 10:17 AM


I'm wondering if any work should be done... uploading, editing, etc.

 

Posted by: Sassan Filsoof on 01/23/2013 - 10:22 AM

Down and out since last night.

 

Posted by: James Bo Insogna on 01/23/2013 - 10:24 AM

FAA main site is still up and working. It is just the artist web site. I have been marketing and working on the FAA main site all morning with no problems. It is a bummer but these things happen. It always sucks when you are advertising. Hang in there hopefully it will be back up soon. I know it slowed my work flow today.

Still down. I noticed it last night at midnight. Not good as I just started a sales event at my AW site through a press release, blog, FB, and some flyers at a couple of different places.

I'm new to FAA (3-4 weeks) and the thing that surprises me the most is the lack of any replies/comments on this forum from the FAA, do they normally ignore their customers in this way or is there another forum for site status messages.

I just noticed something curious. The hi-res preview is working MUCH faster for me. Connected? Are the FAA main and AW sites on the same server, and when the AW sites are down the main is faster?

 

Posted by: Paul Gulliver on 01/23/2013 - 10:41 AM

Good :) but a post earlier in the thread would have been even better.
Elizabeth, when you say "we" does that mean you are a part of FAA or are you quoting from elsewhere

 

Posted by: Beverly Livingstone on 01/23/2013 - 10:43 AM

mine is down to ,I am sure FAA is working on it :)

 

Posted by: Greg Jackson on 01/23/2013 - 10:49 AM

I just checked, and my AW site is now up and running!

 

Posted by: Beverly Livingstone on 01/23/2013 - 10:50 AM
