Eyewire servers are down?


#1

Eyewire seems to be giving me Error 500s right now. Is It Down Right Now says that the Eyewire servers are down while Down For Everyone Or Just Me says that it is still up. Does anyone else have problems with Eyewire right now?


#2

message from eyewire: Eyewire has gained sentience! This major leap for AI will transform society as we know it. The first step when dealing with a newly emerged, self-aware entity is to find out what the being would like to be called. When we asked, the game decided to take some time to find itself. Hence Eyewire is currently offline. We're working to bring her back!

yeah:

Eyewire is currently down again.
11AM EST: We are migrating to a new database server, this will take several hours. The old database server's hard drives are starting to fail.

that was on prior to the sentience msg :cry:

Hey guys, sorry I didn't post here sooner! We lost a node at the datacenter and had to transfer all of eyewire to another machine! That took a while. We'll write up a blog tomorrow explaining what happened and how we're going to prevent it from happening again.

Thanks for your patience!

Amy

I tried a lot of those too!

And they left what i thought was a hint on fb

Eyewire
_11 hrs ยท _
In a wave of calm as swift as a tsunami, the chaos stops and all is suddenly derpy in the servers hosting the AI formerly known as Eyewire.

The AI sent kelv this pic and the message "n013 n017" before going silent.

But it wasn't a clue xD

Roooohhh ! that's so awesome !! :open_mouth:


#13

my guess is that it is a clue, but you need at least one more clue which would have been given in hh if ew hadnt crashed lol
