Disappeared by Soundcloud

Postby Gone To Lunch » Mon Apr 30, 2018 10:58 am

It seems I have been disappeared by Soundcloud ?

Upon trying to enter, it says email not recognised, defaults to sign-up screen and says email already in use, got msg 'our robot thinks you are a robot'

Went to to help utility, where problem is listed, but when you select, it says 'problem solved' and ends the help process !

After several attemtps managed to post a help ticket, which asked for my URL, when I checked it got a can't find msg.

After posting support ticket, got msg saying check for email acknowledgement, but it hasn't arrived ?

Just looked at the Soundcloud FB page, and there are a couple of recent posts with the same problem.

It seems to be out over much of Europe, according to this :

I'm gone too. I'm guessing that part of the system has failed. It's annoying, but I'm sure it will come back soon.

I wonder if it something to do with getting ready for the introduction of GDPR. I tried to log in to Easyspace (where my old website is hosted) and had the same problem. However I can still access the website via ftp.

Yep, same for both of my accounts. I'm sure it'll be fixed in due course.

Or that VC funding hasn't come through as promised...

However, mine is now back up.

There were some massive power outages in S.E Amsterdam today I understand, and that's where a lot of data centres are located so this might have had a bearing on SoundCloud being 'unavailable' temporarily. (Though you'd have thought redundant power and generator backups would keep data centres from going offline...?)

These days I get the impression that many of these are only redundant in the sense they don't cut in when they are supposed to :roll:

Just because you know what I'm talking about, it doesn't mean I do!
