  • The event is what concerns me most (plus the 25 donuts I put into the collider) because we're all missing out on valuable time

    I think a thousand donuts will be sufficient compensation for the inconvenience :)

    We most likely won't even get 1 donut after this.

    I turn my collider on every Tues, since I'm playing the game every hour for the monorail parts. Would be nice if they at least reimburse those 5.

    I does only seem fair that those who bought time on the collider should get credit. When everything is back to normal, I would give EA a try on that issue.

  • Techcrunch's article is updated with more info - am assuming our towns are stored in AWS and prob a good idea not to login till all clear in case you get in and changes you make aren't saved.
    Amazon’s S3 web-based storage service is experiencing widespread issues, leading to service that’s either partially or fully broken on websites, apps and devices upon which it relies. The AWS offering provides hosting for images for a lot of sites, and also hosts entire websites, and app backends including Nest.

    The S3 outage is due to “high error rates with S3 in US-EAST-1,” according to Amazon’s AWS service health dashboard, which is where the company also says it’s working on “remediating the issue,” without initially revealing any further details.

    Affected websites and services include Quora, newsletter provider Sailthru, Business Insider, Giphy, image hosting at a number of publisher websites, filesharing in Slack, and many more. Connected lightbulbs, thermostats and other IoT hardware is also being impacted, with many unable to control these devices as a result of the outage.

    Amazon S3 is used by around 148,213 websites, and 121,761 unique domains, according to data tracked by SimilarTech, and its popularity as a content host concentrates specifically in the U.S. It’s used by 0.8 percent of the top 1 million websites, which is actually quite a bit smaller than CloudFlare, which is used by 6.2 percent of the top 1 million websites globally – and yet it’s still having this much of an effect.

    Amazingly, even the status indicators on the AWS service status page rely on S3 for storage of its health marker graphics, hence why the site is still showing all services green despite obvious evidence to the contrary.

    The dashboard not changing color is related to S3 issue. See the banner at the top of the dashboard for updates.

    We’re monitoring the situation and will provide more info as it becomes available.

    Update (11:40 AM PT): AWS has fixed the issues with its own dashboard at least – it’ll now accurately reflect service status as it continues to attempt to fix the problem.

    Update (11:57 AM PT): AWS says it believes they new “understand root cause” of the S3 issues, and are “working hard at repairing.” It has not shared specifics of that cause.

    Update (12:15 PM PT): Network intelligence software provider ThousandEyes notes that all the packet loss for the ongoing issue appears to be happening in the Ashburn, VA area. Amazon has an AWS data center in Ashburn, whose exact location was revealed in a news story last year due to a fire during its construction.

    Tapped Out has been down for 160 minutes now. :(

    I was trying to log in when it went offline and already 10 minutes late for everyone finishing their tasks & flights so my Springfield has been completely idle for the whole time.
