Is Tumblr Down? Please, Remain Calm: Tumblr Will Be Down Saturday Morning

Please Remain Calm Tumblr Will Be Down Saturday Morning
If youโ€™re less than observant, you might have missed a little announcement at the top of the Tumblr Dashboard, containing some โ€œbittersweet newsโ€ from VP of engineering Blake Matheny.

Okay, you might want to sit down for this.

Are you sitting down?

Okay, while the Tumblr team has been hard at work scaling up to meet the scads of impressions per day, thereโ€™s one final step left in the process. Just one! However, that one final step has an unfortunate side effect:

all traffic to blogs and the Dashboard will be suspended during the operation โ€” returning a simple โ€œweโ€™ll be right backโ€ message.

We are preparing for any issues that may arise and want you to expect your blogs to be unavailable starting at 4:00am EDT this Saturday (Oct 6th), and to come back online slowly over the next few hours.
