I found it odd that 360 Voice crashed on the same day as the start of GSL, and perhaps the two sites being down is related, but for the moment, yes, TA is down as the result of database issues and is not likely to return before Thursday.

There were two threads about this yesterday, at least one is currently locked. If you want to keep up to date on the site status, I would check their twitter feed, since apparently this is not really the place to discuss other sites.

They had a massive server crash. Just going by some of the twitter postings it seems like things keep getting worse. They're saying they expect the site to be back up by the weekend, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if it took longer than that.

I didnt realise how much I'd miss this site until it went down. So convenient to se what achievements I dont have and can click a link to guides as opposed to here where you have to scroll down the list or manually select the ones you have (last time I did it anyhow).

On topic: I hope it's back up soon, I have a lot of friends on there that aren't on my LIVE account or on here.

Tangent:
TA and X360A do different things.

TA tries to give games a different numerical value, and offers solutions to specific achievements.

X360a is a forum community which works on complete achievement guides.

From my experience, TA is better for boosting and judging gamers at how skilled they are in terms of the difficulty of the games they play. X360a is better providing complete achievement guides so you can 1k your games. I use both, and couldn't really be without either.

In some cases, x360a has a really good solution for a specific achievement in a game which has no solution at all on TA. Whereas sometimes in an obscure game x360a will have a method for boosting an achievement whereas somebody at TA will have posted a really good solution that makes boosting said achievement even faster.

In a lot of cases, solutions from x360a are copied & pasted onto TA and vice versa. But really, x360a specialises in complete guides and ta specialises in giving you a tool to judge the skill of a gamer by the difficulty of their achievements and uses a facebook-esque interface rather than a forum-based one.

I wouldn't really say either are superior, but in terms of number of members and contrasting how well known both sites are, x360a would win hands down.

Your TA score is calculated by the entire userbases' gamerscore. It can't essentially "be lost", but if they lost lots of users from the database then it may be altered.
