Welcome Snow Leopard!

To all Wikidot visitors, contributors, site owners, customers: we're really sorry that things kind of completely stopped working yesterday. What happened: too much traffic from curious MacOS users looking for information about the upcoming Snow Leopard operating system.

One of the realities with large services like Wikidot is that we can solve any problem, after it's happened. We are doing a careful analysis of all the different ways we got it wrong yesterday, and that experience will go into our systems and processes so that next time a site like http://snowleopard.wikidot.com gets explosively popular, Wikidot.com will continue to work smoothly.

I cannot promise there won't ever be problems again. Things will break, in places we do not expect, for reasons we cannot predict. What I can promise is that we will always keep you informed, and your wiki site visitors informed, during and after any crisis. We treat Wikidot.com as a totally essential service.

Thanks to all of you for your patience.
