    Problem: I am unable to connect to the Smogon server at my house. I can connect to any other servers properly but the smogon server won't let me connect. If I go to other places such as my school I can connect to it properly, but not at my own house.

    I don't believe that I've got any active proxies or firewalls that would cause an issue, but I'm not an expert so I'm not 100% sure to be honest. I posted a picture showing where the issue is arising which will hopefully help.

    PS username: Nutrix
    Problem: I'm having the same problem as others, where when I try to connect to Showdown, it gets stuck at "Joining Showdown server..." However, I have also tried connecting with http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/~~showdown:80/lobby, and neither works. I have AVG antivirus, but web security is disabled.

    EDIT: With help, the issue was fixed. If you're having this problem, try clearing your cookies/localStorage for *.pokemonshowdown.com; it works. Thanks Cathy and padz.

    Have you tried other browsers? If so, which one, and does this problem happen on them as well? I tried FireFox, but the same thing happened
    When did this problem start? Earlier tosay probably, but I experienced it around 4:00 PM EST
    Your PS username Darkrai494
    And of, course, your problem (include any error messages verbatim. give frequency, etc.). Pokemonshowdown.com just seems to have completely disappeared off the internet. I've tried connecting through google and direct linking, but it's just gone. The reason I'm posting this here is because I can't seem to find anyone else saying anything, or anything saying there would be an update today.

    OK, I was wondering what was up. At least it isn't an issue with my computer.

    There hasn't been a serious issue with PS in quite some time so I guess we were due.

    1. Dell Studio XPS
    2. Google Chrome
    3. I tried Internet Explorer. Same result.
    4. A half-hour ago. I was able to access the simulator earlier this evening.

    6. Every time I try to access Pokemon Showdown, I get sent to the credits section of Smogon instead. A direct link to the simulator would be appreciated. If the server is down, that is fine.

    6. The browser would freeze at 'joining showdown server' at first, so I thought the page could be down... that happened when I tried play.pokemonshowdown.com/lobby..
    However, when i try play.pokemonshowdown.com/teambuilder, my teams are there as well as the ladder, it is just the lobby I could not connect to...

    6. Everytime I try to log on pokemonshowdown, I always get stuck on Joining Showdown Server... part. I already tried clearing my cookies, but I can't seem to find where the localStorage is. Any suggestions?
    Furthermore, it started when I tried importing a team with a wrong syntax.
