Minecraft.net is down. We don't know why, nor do we know when it will be back up. There is nothing we can do but wait.

Update: Minecraft.net is back down. Please do not make threads about this.

Does this effect the SMP/Infdev? Because currently I'm not able to connect to the internet, even though my internet connection is working properly.

I do think it affects the Survival MP alpha and the Infdev.
I know as a fact it affects Creative mode.

Are clients also affected by this? I'm guessing so cause mine keeps crashing when trying to connect. So the entirety of MC must be down -_-

My internet provider has been having trouble all day, and my net finally goes back up and FIRST THING! I want to do is smash some bricks... but MC is down too... coincidence?

Anything that depends on minecraft is not working. This includes, but is not limited to: WoM client, Minecraft skin page, Minecraft server page, Minecraft Survival MP alpha client downloads, Alpha Client for MP(single player works fine).

Things affected by Minecraft.net being down:
browser versions of all versions of minecraft.
clients: Creative multiplayer is down, Single player (I think) cant save.
Survival multiplayer is down. Single player is unaffected except for having the default skin.

I am putting all of the skins i make here

Last time I checked, the official Minecraft forums were down too, due to an excess of people trying to connect... likely due to Minecraft.net being down... Its a chain reaction..

I think Notch is next O_O

Ok well just saying if anyone didn't know a person on Youtube called SeaNanners just made a video of Minecraft and I was going to go buy it and I guess a lot of people that watched the video also tried to get on xD So yeah I was trying to register before and it wouldn't ever finish loading so yeah >.> Also the guy has over 100k subscribers so obviously not everyone will go to the website but A LOT WILL so yeah.... I guess I will have to wait until tomorrow or maybe even 2 days to try and buy the game and also I was reading online and it said that 9.99 euros is about 15 us dollars? Well how much money in US dollars was it for you guys?

@ Exacery about $15 as you said

@ stg44344, please read what Invisibleperson said, and read up on the thread 'Minecraft down', as i heard, Notch was in Finland, and it may be some time before it is up. could be 1 more hour, could be 1 month. (we all hope it is just a small amt of time)

HAHAHA!! I am the winner!

About 4 hours ago I got home and went online to purchase Minecraft. I went to the site, payed via Paypal, and then tried to reconnect to the site for the download. Needless to say, the website wouldn't load. I'm incredibly pissed as I just made a purchase and can't download the f***ing thing.

the reason the site went down was due to a youtuber named Seananners posting the link to the site, 20-30k ppl on estimation probably clicked the link and sending mas traffic to the site, therefore the site had crashed.

Like everyone is going to be saying, it's down again.  Good thing I re-downloaded the latest alpha, or I'd be pissed.  I can't go so long without Minecraft...XD
