If you tried to log on here at 2:00 AM Eastern Time or so, every site in the Vox Media Network was down for maintenance which includes SB Nation; The Verge, our technology news site that mashes Mashable; and Polygon, our video game news site that is also the best out there. But now they're back online and we should be up and feeling good as new.
In addition, the Product Team has released a tweet giving the good news in the wee hours of the morning:
Our maintenance window is now closed and the sites should now be loading normally. Thank you for your patience.— SB Nation Support (@SBNSupport) May 18, 2013
We apologize for all the past inconveniences on our site throughout the past several days.
While we'd like say thank you for your patience, the biggest thanks and kudos however should go to our Product Team, which is led by Trei Brundrett, Vox Media's Chief Product Officer (a/k/a the Head of IT) who makes sure that every site on our network is in great shape.
