Yep, the promo codes were off-line yet again.
This has happened quite a number of times over the last couple of weeks. Given the number of visible changes being made to the sign-up process and WEBID system, I am guessing that quite a bit of work is going on behind the scenes.
Lets hope that DreamHost gets it all sorted soon and we can continue to refer potential customers without the embarrasment of our promo codes being shown as INVALID.
Here is an extract from the latest email I received from DreamHost on the matter;
[color=#0000CC]This has been fixed! We had a temporary problem with the database that handles promo codes not being connected, but it's now back online.
This should not be a recurring problem; it just had to do with a service that was moved, and not reconnected properly.[/color]
