MorphMarket market and community sites experienced several hours of downtime this morning due to a major outage at Amazon Web Services. This outage has most likely affected thousands of websites, although some of the larger sites (like Reddit, Twitter, Spotify) may have only been affected in some of their services.

The incident is not over yet, though the market site is back at the moment is up again. The community site, hosted on a different service, is still not up.

Although it's outside of our control, we apologize for the inconvenience. We will post more information here when we learn more from Amazon and Heroku about what happened.
