Sorry about the site being down for a few hours tonight. We had some hardware problems, but they appear to be resolved now. So go watch some movies, and tell all your friends Newgrounds.com is back up and ready for action! :)

Oh, why don't you all order some stickers while you're at it. ;P

Oh man, you're not going to start going sicker-plug crazy again are you Wade? I remember a few months back when you were jamming those things down our throats. ;p

And i'm glad to see the site is back up.

Okay, i might buy some then. I'll have to go get some stamps and some cash but i will get some. :)

You guys should have a...ummm.....member appreciation day where you...ummm.... give a free sticker to all of the members who have been signed up since 01/03/03 or earlier. Yeah, that sounds good. ;)

Tomarrow, I'll have some money so I'll buy a few.

Jeezus I nearly died from Newgrounds withdrawls, three hours without my NG fix was too damn much. I almost had to go out and start smoking again. Thank you for fixing the problem Wade, nice new pic by the way :)

And I thought it was all because of my internet connection.

At least I took the time to work on a classic car.

Good to see it back up. :-)

Yeah, no problem Wade. It's not like it effects my life. Just as long as you got it back up.

Response to Down time 2003-09-21 22:48:02

Response to Down time 2003-09-21 22:49:29


I noticed that earlier today and dont say buy stickers I already see the sticker order thing every time I go to see my profile so plz stop with the stickers already.I still think you should of kept the popularity scale.

I was joking about the sticker thing, notice the ";P" smiley with a tongue sticking out? :) Oh well, I guess you'd have to have a sense of humor to get that one. The popularity scale was putting a lot of extra load on our database server and it was starting to result in the site having errors. It was a useless stat and was corrupted by cheating users.

okay I guess your right Wade but still it was kind of cool having the popularity scale though.

Response to Down time 2003-09-21 23:05:07


Man, it was horrable. Theres not many sites as good as Newgrounds out there.

Response to Down time 2003-09-21 23:05:40


I had a theory of why it was down.
I had just watched rise of the MK2 and I saw the grave that said 'newgrounds.com Tom Fulp' or something, and then the site died! ha, well that was my theory.

Response to Down time 2003-09-21 23:06:50


O.K, MR. Fulp, no problem... I thought it had something to do with my DNS. Thanks! I was still able to rack up the experience!

Response to Down time 2003-09-21 23:45:06


I was being so productive working on homework until I decided to check and see if the site was back up. Maybe the teacher will understand.

Response to Down time 2003-09-21 23:54:17


OMFG I WAS MAD WHEN NG WAS DOWN!!!!!I WENT CRAZY! hope it dotn happen agian and i dotnt think i will buy stickers cuz i dotn see the point of them

Response to Down time 2003-09-22 00:11:28


The point is to support the community.

Not that hard to figure out.

Response to Down time 2003-09-22 00:41:41


hmm might have to order some stickers lol, ya i noticed it was down, also routing on the west coast was messed up i think, everyone was getting disconnected from aim, msn, and certain networks on irc, bleh some fat ass must have tripped over a cord at a main vain in the routing.

Yeah, I did that yesterday. Oh well, glad to see that Newgrounds is up and running again. A few more hours and who knows what might have happened? I mean, Newgrounds was down for four hours and I was so bored, I ended up turning all the lights off, lighting a candle and watching it glow in the darkness as I softly blew on it. Man, am I weird or what?
