When outages occur, our on-call team takes action to resolve them quickly. We've long been proud to offer a consistently high uptime (99.9% so far in 2012), but these two outages do not line up with that high level of consistency. We just wanted to let you, our customers, know that we take this issue very seriously and intend to report back about any details we can share about the underlying issues involved.
Until that time, I wanted to let you know that we appear to be back up and running, that you can always follow along if you have any questions about the platform with the Ning Status blog, and that we will be following up with more information. We know that you take the performance of your Ning site seriously, and we want you to know that we do, too.
