Hi DevHeads, since about 7 PM yesterday, our database partner
who handles DevHub's tallies for xp, coins, and Devatars has been
having problems with their servers.
Initially, this brought DevHub.com down, but our team reacted
quickly to decouple game features (for now) from site building
features. Shortly after our partner's reported problem,
DevHub's editing and usual features were back up with no
You will see once you go into your DevHub editor that your xp,
coins, and Devatars are at 0. Don't worry, you have not lost
your coins and points (or been robbed, as one DevHead thought).
Once our partner is back up, you will see everything restored
to normal. (It is encouraging to see how much our users value
their XP and coins.)
Remember, to get up to date information straight from the DevHub
team, follow us on twitter: http://twitter.com/devhub.
UPDATE (8/17): We have received an update
from our game database partners, and their best estimate to get the
game elements (xp, coins, Devatars) back to normal will be 7:30 PM
PT today (8/17). Remember, you can still build on DevHub.com
despite xp and coins not being tallied!!
UPDATE (8/18 9:40am): As you may have
noticed, the coins and xp are still not live. Our partner is
working relentlessly to get things back up. They tell they are
closer, but can't guarantee a specific time yet :( Don't let that
stop you from building, the editor still works just as good as
UPDATE (8/18 11:20pm): So finally got
additional word from our partners who handle our game database that
they should finally be back up in the next few hours. Once
this is back, it will take us about half an hour to revert
everything to normal. Thanks for your patience!
UPDATE (8/19 11:10am): It didn't happen
last night (read: wee hours of the morning) but they just told us
it will be back by the end of the business day. You might notice
some things missing, but our partner tell us they will being
rolling that out over the next few days so don't worry, be HAPPY!
Again, thanks for being patient.
Here's a quote from an email we received this morning regarding
this: "...the new system is
just too much fun, starting to get withdrawals..."- C.K.
