Xmarks Scheduled Maintenance

At Xmarks, we are working to make the bookmarking service more resilient in the face of unforeseen disasters, such as this summer's widespread power outages and extreme weather events like Hurricane Sandy. To that end, we are upgrading the distributed database behind the Xmarks service, with a goal of achieving zero downtime failover between data centers and zero downtime maintenance. Unfortunately, we are not quite there and must incur some service downtime to make these changes.

The Xmarks bookmarking service will be unavailable on Tuesday, December 18 from 22:00 to 23:59 EST (Wednesday 03:00-05:00 UTC) as we perform the first phase of this process.

During this time, any attempts to update your bookmarks or retrieve them through the plugin or on http://my.xmarks.com/ will result in temporary errors; these may show up as error icons in the Xmarks plugins. Bookmarks already in your browser can be accessed as normal. At the close of the maintenance window, normal bookmark syncing can resume and Xmarks will resolve the temporary errors on the next sync.

If you have any questions or concerns, either leading up to or during the scheduled maintenance, please direct them to our support team by opening a ticket: https://buy.xmarks.com/supportticket.php 

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Best,
The Xmarks Team

  5. Thanks. Keep up the good work! :)

    Would have been nice if an email were sent to all users informing this. I thought there was something wrong at my end with the sync errors as I use both Chrome Sync and Xmarks and so spent the last few mins fiddling around with things, until I finally thought to check the blog just in case there's an outage.

  6. What is the current status? I am so fed up with Xmarks creating duplicate Bookmark Toolbar folders, and having to rearrange everything.

    1. How they say: No messages means good message, so go on! Let's have some fun (oooo I didn't write more than two words since last 5 years in English):
      Every user of xmarks tomorrow will send on the blog issue something like:
      "No messages on blog! It's terrible!!!! ;-) We needs to know how are, who are or some news (ex: bad or good behaviour / medical issues / problems whit sleeping / graduating / finding new job / finding new girl / last lost pen in the office) about xmarks workers: children's, wife's and/or husband" :-))))
      ...And then we (fans) will sleep well knowing who are The friends "Who knows much me better than my wife"( -> they have my web browser history synch of last.... years)
      ....And they know
      ....And they saw (no!! no!! I know what you are thinking but my wife knows about porntube ;-))) They saw what I have planed for Christmas gifts for my family :)))))))))
      so?! Give them tomorrow a sign that you are waiting and "Please file a ticket with the team: buy.xmarks.com/supportticket.php so we can investigate this with you." you will see !!!!!!!!!!!

  13. I've been using xmarks forever, and I'd like to recommend an option to NOT sync the Other Bookmarks and Unsorted Bookmarks from Firefox. They aren't used and I keep having to delete them.

  14. BigProfitbuzz is an Indian stock market advisory firm. BigProfitbuzz proven month after month that trading and investing in stock market can be profitable whether market is bull or bear. As said last time we made a buy position in NIFTY around 6100-6150 we booked the profit around 6400. All our paid clients made a very good profit. Now for the comingMCX, COMMODITY TIPS week we suggest all the traders to make a sell position in NIFTY around 6450-6500 with stoploss of 6600 for the target 6250-6100. We know these levels are high but we are very much sure that this is the very safe level to trade. So wait for the level to take your position in the market. Traders can also make sell position in NIFTY 50 stocks according to the level of NIFTY. If want good calls in the market then fill our trial form & get them. We believe in Low risk for sufficient profit.
