Thanks I can confirm it is all working, many thanks.

You do realise I nearly had to go to bed to a snoring DH tut grin

Thank god! I thought the kids had blocked the site using parental settings for a laugh!

I checked FB and Twitter but they were tumbleweed

Please can you tweet when the site goes off line? I nearly dragged the kids out of bed grin

I was forced to go to bed!!!

Luckily I couldn't sleep so I got up again.

Yes a tweet would be handy if possible! You don't know what you've got til it's gone... <sheds tear> That was a difficult few hours

I'm so glad it's your end. I thought my iPad had gone wrong !

Thought I was going mental. The youview box went all funny then an hour later mn disappears. Thought that the zombie apocalypse had started grin

Oakmaiden Tue 02-Sep-14 01:16:23

I kept checking that, GMS, but it kept insisting that MN was up!!!

Liars...

A bit? A bit? It was so long. Out there in the deep dark internet, no MN light to guide us home.

Would have been lovely if you could find a moment to tweet or FB to let us know... especially when the only reference on Twitter was suggesting that the site had suffered some sort of attack.

I was quite worried for you all - glad all is OK now grin.

Did someone at HQ trip over the flex and pull the plug out the wall a wee bit?

HawthornLantern Tue 02-Sep-14 01:26:55

Ah, there you are! Glad you're back smile

I don't even use twitter but even I checked there to see if MNHQ had posted something.

AlpacaMyBags Tue 02-Sep-14 02:56:44

I thought DH had blocked it via the router grin

Definitely agree that a Facebook or Twitter post would be a good idea.

Hurrah, back again. I even ventured to the other side last night... shock!

Pipbin Tue 02-Sep-14 07:53:08

I tweeted MNHQ to find out what was happening, but nothing.
I agree with previous posters, it would be nice to have a message. I was worried that MN had been hacked and all our data was being stolen by 16 year olds.

CuttedUpPear Tue 02-Sep-14 09:17:30

I was bereft!
I wanted to start a thread (unusual for me) but couldn't shock

I checked on several sites that were something like isitdown and sitedowncheck and they all said it was working ok.

Liars . Made me think I'd gorn mad.

I too ventured to The Other Side (to see if there were any threads mentioning it) and was appalled I tell you Appalled . Ran away in terror.

I had to buy a ton of stuff on ebay, you bastard Undermining harmonious family life, harrumph.

dancingsusan Tue 02-Sep-14 09:21:31

Oh yes, the 'isitdown' place said it was still up and running, but the comments on the page, from posters that evening, said they hadn't been able access.

I expected to find something on twitter, but there was nothing.

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 02-Sep-14 09:27:02

So sorry all, keeper of the Twitter keys was tucked up in bed and Tech was busy doing what Tech does best and fixing the thing (good at this aren't i?)

Sorry to leave you all in the dark. Everything should be back to normal today.

BlackeyedSusan Tue 02-Sep-14 10:53:39

can I say thanks to whoever it was who posted on is it down that they were having a problem as is it down was saying MN was responding.

thought I had broken something...

CuttedUpPear Tue 02-Sep-14 11:31:39

Nothing on the FB MN page either.

Norty shock
