9:30pm: Site Issue

Written by Trade Me staff at 9:32pm, Sun 17 Jan 2010

Between 8:40pm and 9:05pm this evening some members may have received error messages and noticed that Trade Me was running slow. This problem was traced to connection issues on one of our database servers. We have now fixed the problem and sincerely apologise to those members inconvenienced by it.

On 21 December, we updated Dannevirke to be included in the region of Manawatu.

Due to user feedback, we have returned Dannevirke to the Hawke’s Bay region.

All existing auctions and member details will be automatically updated to reflect this change.

We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
