No, It's Not Your Interwebz — It's Us
My apologies to everyone for the periodic slowdowns that have been plaguing WarcraftPets for the past week. Since The Shattering went live, we've been hammered by nearly 4 times the traffic and our site can't handle the increased load.
We're currently working with outside experts to implement upgrades in a rushed effort to help restore normal functionality. Weena and I are also making some internal changes to decrease load time. I have no ETA on when the site will be back to 100%, but our goal is before Cataclysm hits.
We have 18 more new pets ready to launch in less than a week. As high as our traffic is now, it's about to soar even higher. You should be able to use this site with ease — that's my top priority.
We Need Your Support
This is the first time we've ever needed to hire outside experts and it's a costly endeavor. Donations have always been useful to cover our expenses, but we need them now more than ever.
We'll gladly accept any amount, but if you donate $30.00 or more, your account will be upgraded to Site MVP status. It's our way of thanking you for your contribution. MVP comments and profiles are shown in green and really stand out. Mention your username and we'll be happy to make you a full-fledged MVP.
Thanks a million for your support. You're part of an elite few — the pet collectors, obsessive and proud. WarcraftPets wouldn't exist without you. With your help, I know we'll get through these growing pains.
—Brian Brolin, Site Director
