The Drunk Duck site was out of commission for about half a day for me. I couldn't access it from work or home.

Now that it's finally working for me again, I'm stunned by the massive number of newcomers.

So did Platinum just host a massively successful advertising campaign for Drunk Duck and did the increased number of visitors overload the server or something?

Can anyone explain what happened or are everyone around, just as confused as I am?
Those were my two cents.

I am also very confused by this all.

The site is still being weird, too. The time on all the posts is messed up.

All is not as it seems - the numbers are going down steadily, one by one.

watch it's some kind of 4chan prank…

“we're all going to make drunkduck accounts on the same day, and then people will want to be friendly and say hi to us… BUT WE'LL NEVER GO BACK!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!”

that would only be slightly less moronic than the other shit i've seen them do.
you know why birds don't write their memoirs? because birds don't lead epic lives, that's why. who'd want to read what a bird does? nobody. that's who.

Yeah, you're right. I think ifelldownthestairs is probably onto something there.

Yeah, although I'd like to think it was the work of just one evil genius.

It used to be well over 1000. Now it's 867. Still allot but there's a notable dive.

Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.

Platinum was also down, so I'm guessing something wrong with Plat.
The wrong time zones, I'm guessing will also mean auto updates will be far behind schedule, and there's nothing we can do about it~

For anyone who missed the awesome 1000 users online, I made a screenshot heyah - http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r235/crocty/OVER1000000.jpg
THIS NEW SITE SUCKS I'M LEAVING FOREVER I PROMISE, GUYS.
NOT BLUFFING, I'M GONE IF YOU DON'T FIX IT.
Oh god I'm so alone someone pay attention to me

There was a problem with the servers that DD and Plat are hosted on. All the relevant people were contacted as soon as it happened and worked to fix it.

If you ever have trouble seeing DD you can check the LJ site for updates or the DD twitter page for info on progress:

Yep! The time stamps mixing up is effecting the auto updates.
This should mean that it will update 7 hours passed the normal time.
That'll be 1pm for me, so I guess that's okay.

No, that would require platinum to do something.

Hello Someone! :)
I fail to see your point…

In addition, as far as problems go for DD, this is not one of the most annoying (at least in my opinion).
I still however have faith that skool can use her hypno-powers on Platinum.Also make them wear indigo tutus and watch Rachel Ray's 30min Meals… also prostitution would be good.

The time stamps are how I keep track of time during the summer. This has me all confuddled.
DD's been kinda weird on me all day.

I've never paid attention to the timestamps on DD, because I'm in GMT and DD doesn't adjust for different time zones. :[ So I didn't notice til someone complained about it.

I understand that the crash was a server problem, but what was up the thousand people signing in at once?
