Can't Access MS Paint Adventures - 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.

It's STILL down? Last time I checked this, this morning, it'd been down for 16 minutes O.o

Is this perhaps another attack by 4chan, given the current 4chumblr war at the moment?

mspaint is NOT updating. Please, every one, exit out of that page if you are waiting for a new update. You are stressing the server. But I repeat it's NOT updating.

Okay. This was supposed to be a 30 minute maintenance, but because of his stupid server, they're taking a lot, LOT longer.

This is the Batter Witch's fault! She planned for MSPA to be down! I think this is the worst thing shes ever done... ;n;

aw seriously? I was just about to read the updates yesterday too. But then I noticed I'm running late for school and thought I'd just read them after school. And now this? COME OON! I'm slowly getting impatient here >_<

Gina Hayek · 8 December 2012 - 00:13

I'm pretty convinced that this is fate trying to tell me something. I just started reading it yesterday and now it's been down all day. X'D

Tumblr is losing it's shit over this update and I can't even comment on it because MSPA has been down for an entire day now.

I come home from school wanting to read some good old Homestuck because that's my routine and I come back to find this... Why you do this to me Hussie? Why?

Axel Cthulu Wolfen · 7 December 2012 - 17:33

I hope this comes back up soon, I'd prefer not to be without anything to do all weekend. No rush, of course. I'm just bitchin' over here.

Adriano Rosa · 7 December 2012 - 16:46

I remember seeing something about Hussie saying he might be moving the server, maybe that's what happened?

Alexis Campbell · 7 December 2012 - 16:29
United States · Comcast Cable

if you go to the site, it says under maintenance, i could be wrong and it's forbidden, but more or likely, it's just getting fixed o_o

Destiny Malchiodi · 7 December 2012 - 13:04

So much for reading the update.. ._. atleast it's Friday, I hope it's back up soon.

Autumn Aura · 7 December 2012 - 12:36
United States · Time Warner Cable

I'm hoping this means Hussie is/will be doing something awesome. If not, especially if it stays down long enough that I won't be able to get on and use a character's introduction stuff as a reference for the personality and whatnot of a Jellybean Dragon I'm trying for, I'm probably going to go cry.

"Can't blame the weather this time can they" I love how entitled (to their free comics) people sound when MSPA goes down. It makes me lol and hope Hussie keeps it down just a bit longer. ;D

Violet Martin · 7 December 2012 - 01:07

@Jeff Swinehart It's a lot easier to follow and enjoy for the first time if you watch the "Let's Read Homestuck" videos on Youtube.

a friend of mine was torturing me to try to read homestuck, and this complicates things

Pocket Spirit Jian · 2 November 2012 - 15:23
United States · AT&T Internet Services

Sarah Habicher, I agree with you. Homestuck certainly has some good fans, and some have deep pockets, so why not help out relief efforts so Homestuck will come back sooner. Actually a canned food drive would be oddly fitting XD In a Con I plan on going to, they are creating a can town and donating it to food banks afterwards.

Christina Del Pino · 2 November 2012 - 13:31

if need a place to catch up homestuckColab on youtube is great, voiced version! hope everything turns out ok.

Sarah Habicher · 2 November 2012 - 06:14
Canada · University of Waterloo

this would be a good opportunity to start a charity to help folks on the east coast, lots of people need help right now down there so maybe if we all play a part and help people who need it and the more we fans pull together and help the sooner we can get MSpaint Adventures back online. is this a good idea?

Michael Evans · 1 November 2012 - 19:33

10 bucks says Hussie isn't working on Homestuck during this downtime.

Ugh, no wonder whenever I'd try to go on it would never let me! I almost thought Chrome was just being stupid. I hope the problem will be fixed soon. Sandy just did the windy thing, and I am NOT happy e3e

it's down because of the hurricane. Where the server is hosted is badly flooded!!

I don't know if anybody cares about it, but the What Pumpkin store is also down right now. So, if anybody was thinking that this is just a hoax like some of my friends were, it certainly isn't.

Bro Strider · 1 November 2012 - 07:05

Everyone just chill, you all know Hussie's hustling as fast as humanly (or whatever the hell Hussie is) possible to get this horseshit cleaned up. Give it time, there's a fucking sea Hitler ripping through a quarter of the country.

I'm at Act 6-1 right now, with the part where Jake is out. Fock you Sandy and don't kill Hussie please ! ;)

Karkat Plentyofpails Vantas · 1 November 2012 - 05:00
Australia · TPG Internet Pty.

Oh gog. The answer to this is simple. Some stupid earth windy thing attacked the servers which has caused this site to go down. It's not a freaking troll. Trust me, i know. I am one. And besides. Be optimistic. If the server is down, then i'm sure hussie will be sitting at that little computer of his writing out a hell of a lot of updates. So just calm yourselves. This will all work out, and in no time you'll all be back to reading your precious webcomic.

Man, here I was thinking I could get caught up while sitting here waiting for trick or treaters... I hope the power comes back soon. Also, @Chris Cox, you're terrible.

oh dear >.< I checked it this morning and it wasnt working, I thought: Could it be a new part of the flash? or is something wrong? This is gonna bug me for a while *sigh*
