A particularly malicious spammer has found a way to crash our server. He has been doing so periodically. We are currently attempting to find the flaw in our server code and fix it. We appreciate your patience. In the meantime, if the Smogon server goes down, it should come back up on its own within a few minutes. If it does not, feel free to leave me a visitor message (obviously if there's already a message alerting me that it's down, there's no need to leave another one). Update: We're no longer (as?) susceptible to this sort of attack. Consequently, the server's been a bit more stable. I'm working now on making it even more stable.
