AH Error 31048; Take AH offline, Blizz

General Discussion
I have been unable to buy or sell items for the past 3 days. I know many others who also cannot do so. At the same time, plenty of people can use the AH. This is totally unfair. It is unfair for Blizzard to allow some players access to the AH, and to allow them to participate in the economy, while others cannot.

Blizzard, take the AH offline until you fix the problem.

Please support this thread and help this problem gain attention.
Although I didn't find any solutions on the forums when I had this issue, what helped me was clearing out my completed auctions, canceling an auction of mine, and sending that item to my stash. After that I was able to AH again. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the suggestions. However, this didn't work for me. I cleared out all my completed auctions, and I have no auctions running.
You can also uninstall game.

Seriously though, I think you are going to have to wait it out. That was what I did. It didnt take as long as 3 days though, 2 days yes, not 3 though.
Havent been able to buy or sell anything since the patch. Emptied old auctions, didnt help. :(
same here.
I would say that before they take the AH offline they need to find out what the problem that is causing his error. They need to know the cause of the error that is not allowing you and others to use the AH. Then when they know what the cause is, then they can come up with a solution.

My point is that they should disable the AH for all players while they debug and fix the problem. I'm saying that it's fundamentally unfair for some players to have access to the AH while others don't.
Bump. Still an issue for me..
