DVD Profiler Website

Did DVD Profiler go away or something? I am trying to update my DVDs and I get nothing. There is nothing at their website either. Its been this way for about 8 hours now.

Sorry I didnt know where to post this.

It's working for me, very slowly, but working. Maybe they know of the problem and are trying to solve it. Check tomorrow.

No help but "misery likes company". It will drive me crazy even though I don't need to add anything right now.

I also wanted to add titles and it has not worked for me all day.
(It might be slow but I didn't wait that long.)

The website does not load.
This has been going on the whole day also.

Are they OK?

Still down as of 2:17 am PT.

There has been some conjecture here and on other DVD boards that the NYT article on DVD collecting has caused DVD Profiler
and similar sites to be overwhelmed by "newbies."

Well, it is morning and I can't even get a connection to the DVD Profiler site. My guess is that some upgrading is being done.

Not sure, but this may have to do with extra traffic from the NY Times article. I know I had a hard time getting onto Guzzlefish too.

This is where DVD Profiler has the advantage over the other tracking services. A fat client that can be run without the web site. You can enter, view and change your data without connecting to the server. I'm not saying that DVDP is overall better than the others just in this case it is.

Can someone tell me how to add a completely new CD to their database? The only options I've seen seem to just be for modifying an already existing entry.

I can't add titles to dvdprofiler or get in to dvdaf. Of course, I got a big fat dvd order today just sitting here waiting to be added, but what can you do but wait it out? **Shrugs**

You would think they'd at least have a way to email paying customers and let them know what's up. They must have everything on one server. Hope they didn't have a major wreck...

This happens from time to time. No biggie. They'll get it up.

Sounds like it's time for a cluster and some round robin DNS...

First time I decide to use DVDP this happens.

Also, Guzzlefish has been like this for me for most of this year. I'm never able to get into it.

I have been using DVD Profiler for about a year now and I have a lot of time invested in it. Does anyone think we should be concearned becuase the Intervoactive site has dissapeared?
