We have tried pinging Gather website using our server and the website returned the above results. If is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access Gather - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Gather, where art thou ???

I never get into Gather any more. And there is no help available that will open either. I am missing my Chuck fixes. Help.

so is Gather still running. my email is now not 'recognized' by Gather, so i can no longer access. they haven't responded to any of my messages so far.

One would have thought that they would have had the foresight and decency to give us a warning of their intentions (!?) Oh well, LinkedIn is becoming more to my liking day by day.

Published my 1st post (really short) since April 25~mainly wanted to see if it would publish. It did, but the site is loading at molasses speed!

I can get on, however can't really do anything. My feeds are the same as they were when the site first went down. The home page news is the same too. However the comments displayed on the home page change each day, but are stationary each day.I can view my old post, and make copies. But haven't been able to do much more than that.

at least many of us can be found on now

At least they could of done was allow us to get our stuff off of Gather before closing doors.

I hope they will bring it up long enough so we can retrieve our stuff.

Are Skyword and Gather bankrupt? Without Gather, how can I find out about the latest gruesome murders, UFO sightings, and UN conspiracies? Or about Justin Bieber's syzzurp addiction? Or about how our socialist President is driving the Dow about 15000 as part of his Salafist agenda? Oh, I get it, the Fed is lending money to the Too Big to Fail and the Too Big to Jail banks at no interest because it is an Islamist institution prohibiting interest by shari'a law!

I'm using both Explorer and Chrome and cannot access my profile. This is very bad. I wonder what is really wrong with Gather.

Sharon Pribble · 15 May 2013 - 19:50

Can get on at times. Very slow. Groups not working. Pings work off and on. Have not been able to get on for 2 hours.

Gather seems to be in ICU... hoping it is not fatal. No visitors allowed.

Christopher Beattie · 14 May 2013 - 13:04

Have not been able to get on; everything is blank. "Gather Group" is a closed group. As a famous doctor would say a century or so from now, "It's dead, Jim." Rest in peace.

I've tried all the cache clearing and IP reloading suggested (thanks), to no avail. I haven't been able to access thru either of my two computers for weeks now, but I can access through my phone--sorta--all of my content is unaccessible on my profile. However many freinds can see everything, so my articles are still there (yea!). I suspect an IP issue? Oddly enough when I tried to access thru Internet Explorer instead of Firefox I could get at the content to edit, post, et al, but my profile is still empty. So what the heck this all means is beyond me, I hope figures it out soon.

The front page of Gather is up, but there's not much there and I can't log in or do anything else. Have been trying for several days.

I'm only getting a blank page when I go to

For any who haven't gotten the word about what is going on, check out the comments on the Gather Group on Facebook. Last I heard, it wasn't expected to be up and stable today and it may be another few days. Me... I'm not holding my breath. Just hoping when they get this transfer thing done that everything that should be there is there and intact.

Still unable to log in or post on Gather. It may be up but is not operational.

Tony Stark · 28 April 2013 - 12:35

@ Rayda - You can try contacting Chuck McGuire here --->

But my guess is you'll probably get no response as this seems to be a widespread problem and the Gather admins are more than likely being inundated with emails.

same here cant read and post messages and my personal messages after March10th dont show up as well.

unable to log on for several days now. do they have an email we can contact? How do we find out what's happening?

Tony Stark · 26 April 2013 - 21:02

@ John-Arthur Ingram - More than likely, the Gather social conservatives finally overloaded the servers with their BS. I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later.

John-Arthur Ingram · 26 April 2013 - 18:40

Yep. It's down. Not showing anything but the task bar/heading. I keep refreshing the page but get nothing. WTF?

Jeanette Cheezum · 26 April 2013 - 13:55

I had no problems yesterday before noon (4/25). But, I haven't been able to get on since then. I have tried every way possible.

Kat Sheridan · 26 April 2013 - 11:18

Been trying to get to Gather for two days but no joy. What gives?
