Can't Access Shelfari - 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.

Does this have anything to do with the fact that Amazon mergred Shelfari & Goodreads? Have I lost my Shelfari entries? The merging process sounds very convoluted.

I too am having problems logging into either of my accounts- it is mentioned as being non-existent..this would be a problem & a waste of however many years I have been with you guys if those accounts are in fact deleted.

United States · Phonoscope · Chrome 28.0 on Windows is down. I haven't been able to sing in for days. They don't care, obviously. I think they've totally nuked my shelf. I can't face building another shelf on Goodreads or Libary Thang. I'm sick.

Amazon has been encouraging me to join Shelfari, as I'm an author... Nothing on this stupid site works worth a damn.

I haven't been able to log into Shelfari since last night.

Update: finally was able to log on and the first thing I did was download my bookshelf!

Down for me - tried last night (~10pm Pacific) from home, and this morning (~9:30am) from home and work. Site will not come up under any combination of browsers or location. Although I'm not too worried, I definitely will export my data as soon as the site is back up.

I'm having the same problem. Weird... Shelfari seems to be fairly unstable.

I've not been able to get to Shelfari for two days.

Shelfari is down for me as well. I've tried it on several devices, and on many different browsers. I'm thinking it's the site.

Shelfari is down for me as well on Mac and PC. After clearing cache and cookies, it still doesn't show in FF, Chrome, IE and Safari. I don't think it is the browser :)

Down for me as well. If it comes back up, I'm exporting my data to a more reliable site.

It tells me "Oops! Google Chrome could not find
Try reloading: www.­shelfari.­com" but this doesn't work. Shelfari icon is shown on the browser tab, and it's as far as I get. Since yesterday morning EST.

I cannot access shelfari and I've tried three different browsers. It won't load on any of them. I've cleared the cookies and reopened my browsers and that didn't help. Any suggestions?

Me too. Is anyone else having trouble with a DNS lookup error?

When I try to access Shelfari, I just receive a blank page. I can't access the site. It was acting like this earlier today, too, last time I tried to check. Anyone else having trouble?
