At the moment renewing of your ad is not possible still "The connection was reset"-message!
3rd Update: Read the update at the end of the post + in the comments!
You can access the Adgitize website only with the Adgitize.net url BUT YOU CAN ACCESS ONLY THE BLOG AND THE FORUM (all other links will redirect you to Adgitize.com which is DOWN!).
On the forum they posted this announcement:
Just a notice to those who do not know already, the Adgitize server is currently down. We are looking into the problem now and hoping to have it back online soon. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
Here is the link to this post
Some further messages from the Adgitize support and the reason why i didn't get any response to my e-mail:
Very frustrating, but no updates as of yet. Hoping that Monday morning will bring about some positive responses from our server. Again huge apologies!
And unfortunately this has knocked out our email as well, so sorry to anyone who has been trying to get ahold of us. We will respond to emails as soon as everything is back online.
Second update (my questions got answered in the forum):
Just wanted to ask what happened with the members who couldn't click?
Will you adjust the points to the points from the previous day as everyone will have lost the page/ad view points + some members their click points (important for the Preferred Publisher program, too).
My ad has expired yesterday, will the ads be extended by the time of the downtime (1 or more days)?
We will make sure everything is taken care of for points and for the advertisers. Still trying to get this taken care of, really hoping it's back up soon. Expected it to be running again by now, very frustrating for us as well.
3rd Update - Real-Time update in my (your) Twitter account, Same happened one year ago, too?
In case you want to know the real-time development and the announcements of the Adgitize forum, simply follow me in Twitter - Cornyman.
I set up a twitterfeed which will cover all updates from the Adgitize forum, so we will never miss their announcements and our comments. It will link directly to the forum post, so you can read directly what's the whole message!
John from Ask the Blogster wrote in the comments that the "same" happened last year in January 2009. A sudden downtime - i researched it in the forum and it's true. One day earlier on 23rd January 2009 the server went down for more than 10 days.
You can read about this problem on the following Forum discussion "Login and widget problems" and a second discussion "Adgitize ads not showing up". Please don't forget the offers in these previous discussions are related to the problems at that time. Perhaps the same solution will be offered to us again (a one month ad extension) :)
