I noticed that all morning BYOND.com was down, but not completely. My browser showed a blank page and the BYOND icons (Orange for games.byond.com, Blue for developer, BYOND guy for members.) on the address bar as normal. I would guess this was a cache thing if I wasn't using a portable firefox that didn't save these types of things.

Would you guys mind explaining what happened, not a big deal, but I do wonder.

must have been an operator error on your end - i don't recall any trouble from this side of the Atlantic (though i did not visit the whole day)

I got the same thing too. It was weird as heck, because I was in the middle of making a journal entry when it happened. Blam. More whiteness than a KKK convention. It only started working for me roughly an hour ago (although my entry went through alright).

Well, I tried checking it before work today, 8:00am eastern, it was down. Tried a few times untill about 10:00am, when I gave up untill just a few minutes ago. Perhaps it was bad routing, but both my work and home where affected, and they are different ISPs. Also, I had no problems with other sites and pings for byond.com came up possitive. The site was here, I just was not recieving any content from the server.

hey scoobert i sent u a question through email can u answer it
It was down for around an hour yesterday morning too, no 404 page, or 'Server Maintenance' page either time.
It just happens, could have been a number of things -- database crash, server issue, anything. Best not to get too worried about it, as long as it's back up now.

Will you stop acting like that? Firstly, BYOND isn't something that can "wake up". It'isn't alive.

Secondly, don't blame the BYOND staff. You act as if it is their fault. You obviously don't know a thing about webservers and the billions of reasons they can crash.

Strange, I could of swore I saw a "minor server maintenance..." message yesterday with the Byond symbol.
