Re: eBay down again

Many many people complaining around the world about not being able to access eBay so not a localised issue either.

Re: eBay down again

eBay have updated their Twitter page stating there are problems. Lots of angry customers too.

Re: eBay down again

Hmm - they must be having some intermittent issues it seems.

Re: eBay down again

They are saying it is intermittent. Most customers are saying it is totally unreachable.
Some are saying it looks like a DDOS against the auth servers which would tally in with the fact that I can't do anything on any eBay country site without it failing to authenticate me.
I've tried OpenDNS and Google DNS and both have the same issues.
I've just managed to sign in on the eBay.com site after adding OpenDNS and can access my account but the moment I try and do anything (i.e. saved searches) that relates to the UK site it throws a wobbly and I get page not found.
Rather knackered at the moment lol.

It does make me laugh though when I read comments such as "I lost an auction as I was unable to snipe bid at the last minute and the world is going to end !"
Shame .....

Re: eBay down again

I've had a couple of moments when the downdetector.co.uk site has been down. It could be because of the increased traffic from eBay reports.
Rather ironic really.

[drama queen mode] I've lost several auctions as I was unable to snipe bid at the last second and my world has ended!! [/drama queen mode]  Grin
It's a bummer! I forgot to setup my free sniping tool (auction stealer) last night - sleep overcame me.
Anyhoo, One can still look at the items that One would have bid upon. Unfortunately, One cannot 'signin' and bid.
Only 11 minutes till it ends!  Sad

Re: eBay down again

Not sure when I was last on but it looks a new design to me. maybe that is part of the issue.

Re: eBay down again

I'm back in... (to Ebay). Embarrassed
And, I'm straight back out again!
'The connection was reset'
And I'm back in again via www.ebay.com/
The prices are displayed in both £s & $s.  Shocked
