Update - Sorry for the delay in updating!

API should be responding normally at this point.
Community page is still down, hope to have that back up shortly. We're devising a new solution.
Email confirmations for new accounts and API keys are not sending; please email support@wordnik.com from the email address you used to create the account and we will manually approve it for you!

Update - Hi folks! Turns out we were missing some db indexes which was slowing down calls quite a bit. Calls and pageloads should be zippier now, with the exception of the Community page.

The Word of the Day page is still broken through a dumb error by yours truly. We're working on fixing that now. Undumbing will be a longer process, unfortunately.

Email confirmation is down for new account validation and API requests. If you need an API key or an account, please email support@wordnik.com.

Update - We're still tracking down some incompatibilities with the codebase + the new MongoDB hosting. This is leading to intermittent 502/504 errors and timeouts. We're so sorry for the hassle and hope to have better news soon.
Dec 9, 17:44 UTC
Update - There are two outstanding problems right now. First, there are some hard-coded ports for our MongoDBs in the api-server that are keeping us from retrieving data (because our new MongoDB instances don't use those ports). This is causing the second problem, where Wordnik.com/community page and some user pages (lookups, favorites, etc.) to be inaccessible, as those pages in particular rely on aggregated data.
Dec 8, 22:37 UTC
Update - some API calls and some Wordnik pages (including everyone's favorite, randomWord) are working. We are now focused on resolving SSL errors and errors on the Wordnik Community page. Thank you very much for all the patience and the good wishes you've sent our way! (Moving >8M words is no joke.)
Dec 8, 21:07 UTC
Update - We're dealing with some problems connecting the new front-ends (including the api load balancer) to the api servers. We apologize for the delay and hope to have new updates soon.
Dec 8, 18:36 UTC
Update - The MySQL backup finished! We're hoping to have the transfer completed shortly.

Thank you for your patience!
Dec 8, 14:32 UTC
Update - One large and poky MySQL backup is still chug-chug-chugging along. :-(
Dec 8, 10:13 UTC
In progress - Scheduled maintenance is currently in progress. We will provide updates as necessary.
Dec 8, 03:00 UTC
Scheduled - The good news: we're moving to shiny new servers! The bad news: to minimize the risk of data corruption (and getting the words out of alphabetical order) we'll have to take the site down for about five hours tonight, December 7.
