    Is anyone else having trouble with mara? I can't get on it?

    Even if you don't play it can you go here;

    http://www.marapets.com

    And see if it loads? ;-;

    I think it's another server crash. Hopefully it should be back up soon.

    I was on it working in my attic when it went down. I thought it was my server and discovered that it is completely down. Came here to see if anyone else was having trouble. Ian was on yesterday, but not today I don't think. Goodness knows when it will be up again.

    Over the many years, this has happened. Typically it is during advent calendar time. And it has been out for several days. So, don't plan on it being up that fast. Possibly check them on facebook to see if Ian has mentioned anything.

    Hmmm, didn't see anything about free gift, but haven't checked their facebook page either. Wonder if Ian even knows it is down. Since he was on yesterday, he may not be around today. I guess we are in for a Marapets Dry Spell.

    It is times like this I look for a suitable substitute.

    Thanks everyone!
    @victorian_artist Yeah, longest I've seen is 7-8 days :|

    Who knows, @cpvr, we might find a new layout or we might just find out it was just servers playing up Dx

    I wonder if he's fixing up anything or if @NiGHTS or @Nintendo have had contact with him and know whats going on right now.

    Yeah I guess it was about a week or so and I believe that was during Advent Calendar because we wanted to get all the goodies as I recall. The way this went down, I am thinking this is going to be long one. Remember "delayed" the minipet? I think we got that from the delay of one outage or another. It is just part of the way Marapets runs. And of course, they could have server overloads with the olympics being there et all. But I am not sure his servers are in London.

    I am in now, haven't browsed around. Had to log out of browser and back in again. :th_smiley-dance018::smiley-dance004:


    Also, it seems to be much faster. Maybe they did something. Glad it is up. So far, no server errors ... yet! Good luck all!

    If they did something, then it was more than likely a server upgrade or some optimization going on in the backend:Dance2:

    Probably! Makes sense. They never let us know they are going down for anything. But I am happy its up. I hope Ian gets his stuff together and takes care of it.
