Hello,

I was unable to connect to the server after 12:00pm EST, and I received the following error message.  

Screen-Shot-2013-09-21-at-12.00.22-PM.pngImage Enlarger

I am guessing that others are having trouble as well since no one is on the server (which is unusual for a Saturday afternoon, especially only a few hours before an event).  I tried updating my java, but that didn't help. I dont think that it is my connection to the internet since I am having no trouble posting this or watching youtube videos.  If anyone knows how to fix this please reply.

Respectfully,

si1entSASQUATCH

 

p.s. If this error message means that the server is updating (or is a side-effect of being in update mode) please let me know.

It's nothing server-specific, it looks like Minecraft has been intermittently going down for everyone. You can view its current status here:

I'm sure it'll be brought back up eventually (hopefully soon enough that it doesn't ruin the Saturday event).

 

Edit: Coincidentally, it looks like Mojang is down right now, too: http://www.isitdownrightnow.co.....g.com.html

Minecraft authentication servers are down, if I understand correctly.

The easiest way to check is just to visit this site:

https://help.mojang.com/

If the lights are green, the system is clean.

If the lights are red, the internet's dead.

As of 1:41 PM, Mojang authentication services are still done. Its a waiting game that is completely out of our control.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experiences of others, are also remarkable for their disinclination to do so. - D. Adams

Apparently this is a big deal.  Mollstam is at the office working on it.  Updates as warranted.
