YoYoGames.com was down for more than 24 hours

on August 9, 2009 - 1156 Views

All websites occasionally suffer from a small amount of downtime YoYo Games being no exception.  However earlier this weekend YoYoGames.com was unavailable to access for more than a day.  The affected areas were the main site, wiki, glog and forum – the Game Maker Community (GMC) was unaffected as it is hosted elsewhere.

The site now appears to be back online and working but there are still some problems.  New games and screenshots cannot be successfully uploaded and approximately 1,500 of the most recently added games no longer contain their screenshots.

There has [still] been no notice or acknowledgement of the downtime from YoYo Games.

    It was probably just a coincidence, but when I was uploading an update to my game, the server went offline.
    Would be nice to have an explanation to why the server went offline.
