    Or maybe it's down because of all the people refreshing the page every three seconds waiting for the 2.0 release.

    Website down does not have to mean that they are updating something.

    Here is a small FAQ, in the hopes that it will help:

    Q: Is the Gateway 3DS site (www.gateway-3ds.com) down?
    A: Yeah, for me it appears so.

    Q: Are they updating for 2.0 release?
    A: Lol, I have no clue. The only thing I can assume is that only the Gateway team know why their site is down :P

    Q: Ohnoez! What do I do about it?
    A: Nothing really, just wait until you find out that it is back up again I guess.

    No website have to be completely down for a single page to be updated...

    "No the website is down!
    The 2.0 update was all fake and rumors!
    It will never happen!"

    Seriously, stop it.
    Every website has the chance to go down.
    Appearantly it's some apache error.

    Maybe they are re-installing it because of some errors that occured?
    Maybe updating to a newer version?
    Maybe changing the user interface of the website?

    Right, it had nothing to do with an update but i think it was an distributed denial of service attack on theirs Server/s.

    Attack from the Clones, who knows, hehe

    Maybe someone should make a documentary series about this. You could call it "Gateway 3ds: The Clone Wars" :lol:

    This account has been suspended.
    Either the domain has been overused, or the reseller ran out of resources.


    LOL

    Sounds like they've been DDoS'd out of bandwidth.
