[Downtime] This evening our servers were overwhelmed by a massive surge in traffic
Snapzu experienced a considerable surge in traffic that overwhelmed our database servers and caused a chain reaction that ultimately brought the site down at 7:45 pm PST. We would like to welcome all the new people with open arms and thank you for hugging us to death!
Now that we are back up we will be working on removing additional bottleneck areas that caused the downtime in the first place, as well as upgrading our DB servers to handle a larger work load.
Thanks everyone for being so patient!
