If you cannot connect to SpongeCraft, please uninstall SpongeCraft and download a new copy of SpongeCraft. This should fix any problems that you have with getting on. :)

I've figured out the problem. This is a large DNS issue on everyone's part, which I cannot fix for you, nor can a SpongeCraft update fix it. You have to fix it yourself, so I am providing instructions.

 

Follow the instructions below, and hopefully it will work once more.

 

Windows:

Spoiler

DO NOT SKIP ANY PART OF THIS. DO NOT THINK YOU KNOW BETTER AND YOU'RE LIKE "OH, IT'LL BE FINE." FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY.

 

If you are using the Minecraft client, follow steps 2, 3, and 4 only.

 

  1. Completely uninstall SpongeCraft. This includes going into your Documents folder (on Windows XP, it's "My Documents") and deleting the "SpongeCraft" folder entirely. There should not be a SpongeCraft folder at all in your Documents folder. DO NOT REINSTALL YET.
  2. Open the Command Prompt and type this code in: ipconfig /flushdns
  3. Completely close out of all of your programs. Yes, this includes Skype, whatever game you have open, or anything non-SBC related. Close your browser, close everything.
  4. RESTART YOUR COMPUTER. Yes, this includes you, and yes it must be a full restart.
  5. Now you may reinstall SpongeCraft.

 

Mac: (Disclaimer: I'm currently working on the SpongeCraft client for Mac right now because it doesn't work - PLEASE DO NOT TELL ME THAT IT DOESN'T WORK BECAUSE I ALREADY KNOW. I will post in this topic when the Mac client works, and then follow these directions.)

  1. Completely uninstall SpongeCraft. This is as simple as deleting the "SpongeCraft" app. DO NOT REINSTALL YET.
  2. Follow these instructions provided by Apple: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202516
  3. Completely close out of all of your programs. Yes, this includes Skype, whatever game you have open, or anything non-SBC related. Close your browser, close everything.
  4. RESTART YOUR COMPUTER. Yes, this includes you, and yes it must be a full restart.

If you are using the Minecraft client, follow steps 2, 3, and 4 only.

 

  1. Delete the "SpongeCraft" folder. DO NOT REINSTALL YET.
  2. I cannot possibly give instructions for every single Linux distro, so you'll have to find instructions on how to flush the DNS on your corresponding Linux distro. For example, if you're using Ubuntu, find the instructions on how to flush the DNS on Ubuntu.
  3. Completely close out of all of your programs. Yes, this includes Skype, whatever game you have open, or anything non-SBC related. Close your browser, close everything.
  4. RESTART YOUR COMPUTER. Yes, this includes you, and yes it must be a full restart.
  5. Now you may reinstall SpongeCraft.

In the Command Prompt, tell me what this gives you:
