Plenty of Fish Site Down Until Later Today

By Peter Chubb - Aug 10, 2010

We reported to you yesterday that the dating website Plenty of Fish was down, but we did not know why this was. We have since had a huge response from our readers, who now inform us that a message has now appeared on the plentyoffish.com website. The reason why the service is down is due to multiple system failures, the end of the message on the POF websites reads, “Will be restored later today.”

Our readers seem to use the dating website a lot, as we have had a huge response, with many of them worried that the service will never be back up. Other users have told them to calm down as this has happened a number of times before.

You always have to laugh at what the readers have to say; one comment made said that this site going down for good could be a good thing, as it would “keep all the cheaters from cheating on the ones that love them.”

Most people seem annoyed that they are unable to view their emails; they fear that they could be missing a big opportunity. One thing is certain, this is no usual problem – we would have thought that an issue with multiple system failures would have been resolved by now.

Do you fear that POF will never be back?

    This is a perfect example of why this site needs a complete overhaul… cheaping out on the databases and not upgrading anything to a modern style database will ultimately mean the site will collapse some day, perhaps soon… It was nice back in 2003 but now it just looks like trash. No properly resized/resampled pictures (heavily artifacted when they are resized), no fixes to the very common site formatting/style issues (bold rollover, text spilling over in to the wrong columns). etc etc etc

    I remarked to a friend yesterday, POF is down ….this should be on national news. This is a hugh site …I imagine the members are into the millions. Yes this site being down has happened from time to time, but never so long. I am sure the withdrawal systoms must have sent many to the emergency clinic. lol

  • Me & You

    No one is missing out because everyones site is down, the only thing missing is the site itself. ,Patience if of a virtue, hang in there folks!!

      The IM (instant messaging) is constantly breaking down. Everyday is the normal for instant messaging breaking down. Then for them to get it back up and running, forget that, that's another story in itself. Hint: many, many, many hours.

      Rating: terrible, old software that needs immediate change, asap!!!!!!!!!!!
