How to Solve Creativecommons Down or Outage Issues:

We have tried pinging using our servers in diverse locations and the website returned the above results.

If is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or website maintenance is in progress.

If the site is UP for us but you however cannot access it, try one of our following solutions:

1. It might be Browser Related:

To solve Browser related issues that might make the site/server down for you, do a full Browser refresh of this site. You can do this by holding down CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your browser.

This trick works perfectly on Chrome, Firefox, Brave, Opera, Safari and whatever default browser comes with your Windows nowadays lol.

2. Clear Your Cookies and Cache.

The contents of all modern sites and apps today are usually cached. This means a copy is stored in your browser as long as you have visited that page before. This is to make it easier to access when next you visit that page. This might be a problem especially if the page was down last time you checked.

You might need to clear that out of your browser memory for the site to load properly.

3. Fix DNS Problems

Domain Name System (DNS) is what allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words ( e.g .com, .us) in order to be remembered easily. This is usually provided by your Internet Service Provider.

To fix this, clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has.

@mkgold Great point here from @actualham, one that resonates with what @briancroxall & @triproftri have argued about the syllabus as an opportunity for citing our sources #curatepedagogy #citepedagogy . I have not added @creativecommons licenses to my syllabi in the past but will now!

@openaccess_anz U.S. Appellate Court Enforces @creativecommons Interpretation of NC: "so long as commercial actors are not acting independently for their own commercial gain but solely on behalf of noncommercial actors, they are protected by the license granted to the noncommercial actors."

@betalars @creativecommons A lot of CC-attribution lisences state, that in order to give appropriate credit, you must also include lisence information when republishing a work of art. Is it okay to not mention, what lisences an artist wanted to use while reposting their work? (3/3)

@mezzoblue @joshhumble @kreynen @acme_clicks @creativecommons @TwitterSupport May as well block it. If @TwitterSupport prefers to keep taking ad revenue off of my stolen content, not much I can do about it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@tgoetz @WIRED @creativecommons @gob Not sure this could happen today - more skepticism in music biz, no CondeNast mag would pay for it (I think it cost an extra $1m to distribute real CDs in 750K issues), and nobody uses CDs anymore. But putting something real into readers’ hands was a big part of making it work.

@MikeNardolillo @BGIradji @Coil @xrptipbot Who knows how many people outside of crypto they have drawn in who want to monetize their content, especially working with @creativecommons/@mozilla We really don’t know, but sure rn it doesn’t look significant from where we are and it might not be yet.
