Open Raid Servers Down?

General Discussion
Hello,

Has anyone had a problem getting onto the open raid site? It hasn't seemed to work for a few days now.

Nope. It seems to be working right now albeit a tad slowly.
Though they did mention this on their site.

Our apologies for the site being slow - the Battletag/DS release caused a huge increase in usage of the site. We are working to get a new, faster server up and increasing our voicechat slots while also trying to speed up the current server.
I'm unable to get to the site either.
Maybe blizzard can make their own open raid interface

I was thinking the same thing. The site creators had a great idea and maybe it will get cleared up once they get the new server that Novalas mentioned above but if not Blizz should look into this, after they fix the other 99 problems in game of course.

I am still unable to get into the site at all, unfortunate for raid leaders who did not yet get all the Real ID's for invites to raids this weekend, I was able to get on for about 10 min signed for a FL and then nothing for the last couple of hours
Ditto that!!!
I'm leading a raid in a couple hours too, now I can't get at the extra people..

Yes you can.

Blows my mind after all these weeks they cant even fix it.
It appears that they are updating their servers right now.

Let me be the first to say... savior prot/ret/warlock LF 8/8H DS or heroic Rag! Seriously :D
This is unwelcome news, most unwelcome.

Feeling your pain immensely. It is like suddenly i am on a realm by my self.
I'm going to assume this is some form of server conversion and hold any major criticsim for the time being. If this is the case a warning would have been nice.
Indeed

It's possible the server went kaput and they decided to go for the upgrade instead of fixing the old system. I've been in that spot before on server work. Probably just wishful thinking on my part though.. :(
Just how long do server upgrades and maintenance take?
