Can't Access InterPals - 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.

Woundn't kill them to make some sort of face-page telling everyone that they're working on their site!!! Hopefully they're making it a little easier to use as there are so many ads scattered everywhere it can be a little hard to navigate.

So am I, but you can still log in. You'll just have to hit the enter button on your keyboard, since the interpals ad is blocking the "sign in" button. This keeps showing up:

should be fixed by tomorrow, happens alot. and the only other site that works is penpal world, and I have found interpals so much better, because all features are free, and you can connect to interpals with facebook.

I was just using interpals and everything was working fine for me until about 5 minutes ago, when I reloaded my messages. I wanted to load the history of the messages, but when I did the entire screen went blank. So, I refreshed the page but when I did some error message popped up saying this:
Error: Oops! If you are seeing this, your browser is not loading the page correctly. Please try pressing Control-F5 to force reload the page. If this doesn't work, you may need to update your browser: Download Firefox | Download Chrome | Download IE
I already have Google Chrome, and interpals looked like an updated site on my computer earlier, now all of a sudden the whole site looks old, and it doesn't look upgraded at all? How can this problem be fixed? Can somebody help me please? I can't even update my status on my page or anything. This site makes me want to leave altogether because stuff like this frustrates the hell out of me, but I can't leave because I've met so many friendsl. (??)? UGGGGH!!
