    no, I can not. I am sure that foretells the end of the world too.

    In an hour, when I get to work and check back this post will will be full with 10 more ppl reporting that they cannot as well.

    When .com comes back, there will be another 10 ppl reporting that they finally can.

    i joined this site 2 weeks ago to start a blog. the image uploader suddenly stopped working and no one on these boards knows why, and now the actual site is down? This doesn't sound like WordPress is reliable software for a site of business value. Anyone know some reliable alternatives to wordpress?

    you didnt join THIS site -- you joined that site.

    THIS site is a support forum for SELF-HOSTED wordpress installs, not for people that sign up for free blogs on wordpress.com and then complain when their business sites go down. (cough)

    If you want to hem and haw over a site going down go elsewhere. For what its worth, stuff happens, upgrades occur on hosts, etc..

    Post your complaints over there. And besides, what cheapo hosts a business site on wordpress.com.

    That also might explain some of your other posts on here, as well.

    sites hosted on wordpress.com dont have the ability to do advertising. Its free - you dont get to make a buck on someone doing something for you for free.

    posting questions here regarding problems that you are having over there isnt going to net you any assistance.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm unclear on what you're saying though. If someone wants to start a blog on WordPress, he/she goes to wordpress.com and joins. Selects a template, learns how to post, etc. Then if something goes wrong with that site/system/software, whatever, he/she is directed to WordPress.org for support. So, I'm unclear on your HERE/THERE thing. If they are not related, why am I directed to these forums?

    Additionally, thank you for your comment about why wordpress doesn't let people post ads. However I was able to get a banner on my site. I don't know if banner is the right word, but its not an ad. Just a link in the sidebar to Gawker artists.

    So again, image uploader is not working, wordpress.com is down, can you suggest somewhere I should go for help?

    It is not down from here... and they have their own forum:
    http://en.forums.wordpress.com/

    That's what the here/there means.

    We (aka wordpress.ORG) support the self-hosted blog script.
    They (aka wordpress.COM) support the blogs hosted on their server.
    It is that simple.

    Who was it that directed you to these forums? Whoever it was, they were mistaken to do so.

    http://forums.wordpress.com is where you go for WordPress.com problems.

    In the defense of the OP: it is the WP and WP MU developers who direct people here!
    When the DB is down even the WP MU error message sends people HERE, to wordpress.org/support link...

    I would guess the guy is posting here because the wordpress.com forums are DOWN. (Last I heard, they were undergoing another DoS attack.)

    Just a hunch.

    Ugh. Somebody needs to report that to the automattic crew, it shouldn't direct wordpress.com users here.

    Also, the http://forums.wordpress.com seem to be working fine to me. And WordPress.com seems to be up perfectly well, I can access all sorts of sites on it.

    Just because you can access it now doesn't mean everyone else on the internet can, or that they could two hours ago when this thread started.

    (For the record, I always used to feel guilty about redirecting .org users here when they posted on the .com forums, because I was aware of the kind of reception people who don't even know what host they're using were likely to get. I know that others are still doing it, though.)
