Bid-Ninja Service Restored to Normal Operation

We sincerely apologize for all of the outage over the past few days.  From the DDoS (when a website is intentionally sent thousands of queries, for the exclusive purpose of taking the website offline) to QuiBids adding code to their website that removes Bid-Ninja from view if you’re using it.  We have resolved all of these, but for you to continue using Bid-Ninja, YOU MUST BE USING the latest version of the CHROME or FireFox browser plugins.

Visit our installation instructions page here to get the latest version of the Chrome and/or FireFox browser plugin.

On the upside, QuiBids themselves have proved to the world just how effective our software is…they added the code to their website to try and prevent you from being able to make educated, intelligent & strategic decisions about when/how/who to bid and/or bid against.

You can even see Bid-Ninja right in QuiBids source code now!  That’s how incredible our software is…don’t believe us?  Have a look for yourself: https://s1.quibidscdn.com/site/cache/js/detector_block.js  That is one of the JavaScript files loaded by your browser when you’re on a QuiBids auction, and what it does is “check” for the presence of Bid-Ninja every five seconds, and if it’s present, it is removed from view.

UPDATE: QuiBids no longer has that code listed on their site.  It has since been removed

We’re not incompetent, some of the issues we had are a result of QuiBids intentionally trying to make all Ninja’s not have the advantage of knowing the powerful information provided by our software.  As always, we have taken care of our users though!  In addition, as our way of apologizing (even though these problems were caused by things we had no control over) we’re giving everybody TWO FREE WEEKS of use of the Bid-Ninja software.  Please email us at our support email address to receive this offer.

Bid-Ninja Back Up and Running

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience if you were having trouble using Bid-Ninja during our small outage period.  If you’re still experiencing trouble using/loading Bid-Ninja, please clear your browsers cache, close out your browser and reopen it and you’ll see everything is working normally now.

We had a temporary outage of service due to our Amazon server going down and us having to point our nameservers to a newly started Amazon Cloud instance.

Bid-Ninja is Experiencing a Temporary Outage/Downtime

We sincerely apologize for the unexpected Bid-Ninja outage. We ourselves did not anticipate having any downtime at all. We are experiencing a minor issue with our Amazon Cloud hosting in our region.

We had to start a new “instance” on our Amazon servers and point our domains nameservers at it, which can take some hours to update/propagate worldwide.

We’ll be back up and running here very shortly and we’ll also post updates on our blog here: https://bid-ninja.com/blog/

Sincerely,

The Bid-Ninja Team
