I can't log in to Cake Central at night for the past 5 nights, I even went to my sisters to see if it is my internet (I have Earthlink), she has Bellsouth, the same thing happened. I get this message that the Website is unavailable. But during day I have no problems.

Is anyone having this problem? I can't stand this anymore!!! I need my CC!!!

Yes, I am having the same problem. The page just keeps loading forever until I finally just have to giveup. I just logged on right now (1:30 pm) with no problems. It's the only site I am having problems with, so I know it's not my internet provider.

I have problems during the day! So I have been logging on in the early AM, and then it seems to go down for the day around noonish. Maybe its overload?

I can't log in between the hours of 8 AM and 1 AM. No, not 1AM to 8 AM, I'm talking 17 hours straight!

So glad my day starts at 4:30 AM, so I can get on for a little while.

Anyone who wants to keep in touch in between should send me a PM with their e-mail address, and I will put it into my address book on my server.

Hello.......my name is Paula and I'm a CC-aholic!!!! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

I'm having the same problem and YES it's just maddening!!!! icon_mad.gif As long as I log-in early in the morning, I have no problem! It's 5:00am here in Texas and I'm supposed to be getting ready for work! icon_lol.gif Recently at work they've installed a new and improved spam-blocker and that won't let me through until around 11:30am thru 1:00pm. I guess that's when we can surf the net freely. Anyhow, I haven't been able to log-in to CC at that time either!!! I'm having serious withdrawls!!!! icon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gif

I can only seem to log in early in the morning, the rest of the day the site just will not load. My hubby gets up @ 4 to get to work so I get up now with him and log in. He thinks I have decided to spend more time with him in the morning, well OK sure honey lol icon_confused.gif

Oh my gosh! icon_surprised.gif I'm not the only one! I can only log in early in the morning, after that no CC for the rest of the day!!!!!!!! I'm freakin out! It's terrible that I'm this dependent on CC, but I can't help it. It's where I come for inspiration, questions answered, and a good laugh every now and again. I really hope the problem is fixed soon. I'm almost afraid to log off now. icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

I'm having the same problems and finding myself on early in the morning as well. I didn't realize how addicted I was to this site until I couldn't get on regularly! icon_redface.gif Hopefully all will be well soon!

I can only log in at night, but that's because I'm in a different time zone, I just wish I knew what was going on

I cannot get on in the evenings here in the UK, I thought that it must be because of the time difference that was busiest time in the US but I guess its not just me!

There's just not enough time to get my CC "fix" before going to work in the morning, but that seems to be the only time I can access the site.I too am guessing that it's an overload issue.

Although I am able to post in the forums, I still can't order at the store this morning. I am trying desperately to place an order and want to add a donation (I'm sure that could help with any updates that they are needing.)

I NEED my CC !!

I'm in the UK and I haven't been able to get the site up on screen at all in the evenings! I just get a server error.
It's fine during the day though.

I'm right there with you all!! icon_cry.gif I can log on for a while in the early am. then around 11 am or so, not again. sure is very frustrating, I need my CC too!! icon_cry.gif I get right in the middle of a cake design/thing and need to hop on for inspiration/help and get the screen blanked in my face. NOT SO GOOD!!! icon_cry.gif

Any clues or ideas what that is all about? detective.gif

Boy, I feel like I'm loosing my best friend. I'm pretty new to CC and can't believe I've found such a wonderful place and now to hear that CC may not be around anymore is devastating. Since the siteâs been down I've been forced to search other forums and I can truly say, none of them compare to CC.

Please Heath and Jackie, make this a subscription site. I know this goes against what you intend for this site, and I, and I'm sure every CC member, appreciates you guys so much for trying to keep this a free site, but I think this thing has gotten bigger than all of us. In checking out some other sites, I noticed that they don't seem to have the server problems that CC does and thatâs because not one of them have the amount of usage or members that you do. This is truly the BEST site going.

Please think about it and let your loyal subscribers help out. We owe it to CC and you for the outstanding job youâve already done.

I thought it was just me!! The only time of day that I can get in is in the early morning. The rest of the day and evening...forget it! I have to get my cc fix first thing in the am before starting work!!

I can only log on before 7:30 a.m. EST. After that, it SQL error the rest of the day. (SQL is a server/software problem) This latest "fix" just isn't working.

The same thing happens to me. Mostly late afternoon and night time. I thought it was my computer at work, but now I know it must not be if you are all having the same trouble. I am so addicted to this place that I am lost when I can not get in.... icon_sad.gif

I admire Jackie and Heath for all they are doing!!!
I know they are frustrated as much (probably more) than we are...

For those of you that are asking for a paid membership site.....why don't you just DONATE? Why do you have to have it forced upon us? There are donation banners all over this site....Instead of pleading to Jackie and Heath for a paid membership....just click on the banner and set up a monthly donation...DONE! If even half of us donated $1 each month, I am sure that would be a HUGE help!

Jackie and Heath have always promised that this is to be a free site and they will never go to a paid membership. I THANK THEM SO MUCH FOR THAT!!! Not all of us are in business and do not make any money from our cakes.

I love CC and am so grateful for all of you!

LOL, Blazer you making me laugh so early.
It is 7:00am this is the only time I can log in.

I decided to donate $1.00 a month, maybe everyone should do that, it is just a dollar. Think about it wouldnt you want to spend $1.00 every month for this wonderful site.

Same problem here . I can get on in the morning but not when I get home from work or for the entire evening. I too am having wihdrawal symptoms. I'm sure it will get fixed but I need my CC fix after work.

If everyone pitches in a little something, we would all benefit. I just made my donation.

it seems i can't ever get on. i would definitely pay a membership fee if the site changed over to that. during the last crash i started donating $5 a month but i'd be willing to pay more for a membership if i knew that the site would be up and running smoothly.

Same here with the log in problems. Mornings are the only time I can get in here and then that doesn't even last for a long time.

Yes, I have the same problem. I thought this only happens to me, 'cause I'm from UK. I thought the mambers in US can log in any time. Guess I was wrong.

It is soooo frustating. I log in to cc in the morning, but having two kids at home ( eldest is not feeling these days ) makes it really difficult. Can't concentrate properly.

I want peace and quiet and enjoy cc.

I saw on google that there is some litigation going on with CC and sugar craft I wonder if they're just busier getting sued and with that whole thing........scary!!

We DO donate. But donating and still having problems indicates that it isn't enough, which implies that only a small percentage of members donate. Surely you can see why it would be frustrating to keep donating and still have problems with the site. I am sure that Jackie and Heath are doing all that can be done with the funds they have. Which is why a small subscription fee would help. They could even do tiered membership for tiered fees. And with the size of the CC family, it wouldn't have to be much, some small token per year. I'm sure skipping a couple of Starbucks coffees or dinners at McDonald's would cover the minimal cost required, even if one doesn't sell their cakes. JMO thumbs_up.gif

I really LOVE this site, being very new to this and not in an area that offers decorating classes, I have been able to do a few simple but cute cakes for things at my church just by reading the posts and tips and looking at the pictures. Some of the pictures on this site are just FAB! WOW, so anyway, have made my donation and hope everyone can pitch in something and keep this up and runnning icon_smile.gif it's really a great site and every one is super nice
