Service interruptions continue to plague SOE players.
Sony Online Entertainment has been plagued by DNS problems since early Tuesday morning, causing players to intermittently be unable to access SOE websites, forums, and games. Today SOE issued an apology on their forums (if you can get to them) and social media:
We deeply regret the recent service interruption. We will be adding two days of membership time to all members’ accounts.
Because domain registration can take a while to filter through internet service providers everywhere, players may continue to have issues. In cases like this things are usually completely resolved within 48-72 hours. If you don't want to wait, you can also try to flush or map your DNS.
Two day's of added membership is like trying to get rid of the current Administration in the White House. What a joke.........................
The lack of professionalism as well as follow through after all these years really astounds me
Shouldn't I be getting like my AAs transferred from 250max to 8000max or something?
What about my merc who's not on my AA list -- Shouldn't she now be on it?
More toon slots?
A free Heroic Toon?
Actual help from the GMs when I petition about my PvP status?
And I mean,
What's to say I won't be stripped of these after all-access?
Where will my AAs go?
My mount? Stays?
My items in my Trader when the timer goes off?
I have a lot of questions -- Anyone have some answers, please?
Any aa you gain while playing with gold membership you get to keep and use after you are no longer gold. Same thing with your mounts and everything else. The items from the trader you have set up will still be yours. You just won't be able to sell stuff in the bazaar till you get gold membership.

If anyone is wondering it looks like they meant "paying" members as in All Access which is most likely why they never mentioned any games specifically. My Everquest accounts are silver membership and none have been upgraded to gold. That would have been awesome getting the upgrade for 2 days though for the free aa points on characters that are on accounts i have never paid for gold membership on since the game went free to play.

Please let them be up before the Moonlit Madness event.
I usually have no luck when it comes to taking shortcuts or "quick fixes", (i.e.,) routing through a Google server (which is unsecure) vs. the SOE server, which usually cause more headaches than just waiting a little while longer.
I was tempted to try that route but all I'd do is make more of a mess for myself in the long run. I would recommend trying THIS simple fix (for me, at least) before you go switching DNS servers and wiping your DNSconfig's.......
Hope this works for you!!!!....???
It's a lot of fun...
I just got my Veteran Reward Merchant (It's awesome) ...
I have 7 80+ Toons: SHM, SHD, BER, MAG, BST, NEC, WIZ...
EQ has had multi-day glitches before...
It's a crazy complex system that bugs and occaisonally breaks (or bends)...
THEY DIDN'T PAY A BILL THAT WE PAY FOR MONTHLY ???!!!???!!!
PS (Wrong email. B-B-B-Bu11$hit.)
The short version was that the domain registration renewal went to the wrong place (according to Smed's tweet) and SOE didn't re-register the web address all those games and forums and websites use. So all the directions that tell your browser how to get to www.whatever.com were missing.
The delay is it takes 2-72 hours for every but of the internet that needs that address book to get the info.
