Almost every day when I try to sign in, BlogPatrol is down or does not work in some way. If I'm lucky enough to get logged in, then it won't show the majority of my stats. Soon, I'll be forced to switch services.

IS there a problem? The counter and stats have been down, off and on, for the last eight or so hours...

Maybe it's just me, but your top 3000 list seems mostly pointless. Is that hits since day 1 (I think it is)? Doesn't it make more sense to do like most sites like this do and list the most hits each week and start back at zero at the beginning of each week?

As it is, someone just coming in (like me) have very little chance of getting to/near the top because everyone else has a huge head start.

You could still have the top 3000 list like you do now but call it "Top Blogs of All Time" or something and call the weekly one "Top Blogs of The Week" (or something.

Just a thought.

hope you manage to fix it soon. roar on!

I am constantly getting the message:

I can respect that you are having problems, but shouldn't you at least mention this? With perhaps a heads up on a timetable for getting it fixed?
