Was just there, no problems on my end.....

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

Time to realize you've upset someone at WOTC. Did you mention the N word in a post?

No amount of weirdness surprises me anymore when it comes to accessing WOTC's site.

It seems to be an Australian problem, Dargoth. I haven't been able to access either the main WOTC site or the message boards, so far today.

In the past I encountered problems accessing the WOTC forum or something else on the site pretty much on a weekly basis.

Thus, Americans have already had plenty of trouble.

It was not an "Australian" problem, for I have had unfettered access since early on the 25th. There was however several terminal problems with a number of international ISP servers in some countries on the 27th...

That's strange, because I never had any problems with the Message Boards. I'd been at the Eberron forums mostly on the 8th, but I did visit some of the other sections of the community and still had access.

Perhaps you should look into your connection to your ISP...?

Wasn't his isp because it was doing it for me as well, and started to do it again last night also but then they came back up.

Not the boards, but the site in general, yes. Specifically the Magic side of things, though-mtg.com is down, so you have to go through wizards.com/magic...

At this rate, Candlekeep needs some type of warning system at the top of the page. "Do not panic WOTC fans. It's simply down again. There is nothing wrong with your connection. Enjoy this reliable site!"

Wooly has no problems because he was banned for "novel discussion." :)
