I've been patient until I was told this was my fault.. after being told for many hours, through many emails, it was on iClan's side. Now, even being told it's on my side, they refuse to help quickly as no one is online, or at least trying to help fix this.
PS, I just spent $400 with this company, maybe convince my members I didn't lead them further down the rabbit hole by staying here? I've already had member lobby to switch services, this isn't helping your case.
I bet you are lost reading this, so let me begin our story with the issue at hand.
Yesterday, Thursday, October 20th, 2016 at approximately 1300 Eastern Time, I received a notice that my TeamSpeak had crashed. When all troubleshooting on my end had failed, I turned to a support ticket. This was around 1330 Eastern. When I had recieved NO reply, not even a confirmation email I then started a chat with one of the Customer Service Reps, Jan, who told me they would reply to me very soon. This was about 1530 Eastern. At 1630 Eastern I again spoke with Jan, who told me:Jan our developer is working on it now and we will give you an update soon
So, I told her I didn't believe her, but logged off anyway, waiting for a reply. So, Jan decided the problem was a server wide issue that they were aware of at approximately 1810 Eastern.. why was I not told of this before?
Good day! We are still troubleshooting the problem. We actually had an outage with the Team Speak. Please allow us to troubleshoot this.
So Prime Time had started for my group and training was in just a few short hours. So, at approximately 2100 Eastern, I sent ANOTHER request for help and clerification... THIS time, I got a new story...
The reason for this is that we are undergoing maintenance.
We are very sorry again but we will do our best to fix this issue as soon as possible.
Thank you again for using iClan Websites!

Okay, now it's been 8+ hours, how much longer? We are missing prime time... Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone
So at this point, our TeamSpeak has been down for almost 12 straight hours, so I wrote a reply asking for reasons why this was happening, which they ignored, then told me it was an issue with MY side... Passing the buck it seems.
Can you try and change your port locations? Because it worked with our other customers.

That's fine but the only way I'm getting updates as if I come to you guys instead of you guys coming to me as I was told you would do. Such as this before I asked I was told you guys were troubleshooting… Maintenance is not troubleshooting maintenance is fixing the problem you were found during the troubleshooting process or it is doing normal things such as resets and things like that. So since I receive no update that you guys have transitioned to actually having to perform maintenance to fix the issue I was left to wonder.
Now my question is this at the end of the day… If I submitted my ticket when I did and I had to come back in several times asking for clarification as to why I had not received any information or anything like that then I am told that the entire server crashed how is it no one knew this until five or six hours after it crashed? Is no one paying attention? I'm not making this up; you can see in the email tracked along with the chat log that I had with your employee Jan. At first she says no one knows what's going on, that you guys have to troubleshoot the problem, then I hop back into the chat a second time and I am told that you guys are trying to find out what the problem was; then, approximately five hours after my initial ticket, which was approximately an hour after our servers went down initially (6hrs), I am informed tthat the server crashed… So it took six hours approximately for your employees to be informed that the teamspeak server had crashed systemwide?
How is it no one noticed it had crashed for that amount of time (5-6hrs)?
How is it that was so much time having passed it isn't rectified yet?
Why was I told a technician was fixing it and it would be resolved soon and I would receive an email from that technician, only to be forced into jumping once again in chat in order to get more information... THEN to find the person who I chatted with, instead of the technician as they promised, was the one to write the reply email?
And even with you answering these emails it's still not the person they told me would be getting back to me...
Will we be credited for the time lost?
I understand it's not a great deal of time but at this point we are hitting 12 hours of server down time and it's not like it was 12 hours in the middle of the night, it was 12 hours during prime time and I was constantly lead to believe the problem was much more minor than it appears it actually was.

So here we are, at 1041 and with iClans NOT replying, nor trying to fix this issue any longer, or give satisfactory answers I felt we'd take it to the community... I regularly take to the forums when iClans customer service is involved. Rarely does one get decent response from them the first half dozen emails, but the reason we deal with it because the product is second to none... Customer Service, unfortunately, is right on par with companies such as Comcast/Xfinity and the like...On Friday, October 21, 2016, 8:06 AM, D*********** <email@example.com> wrote:
What would you like me to change it to? I got the port location from you guys and not a single one of my members can connect. If that is your solution to it after this many hours then why on earth would it have changed?
The other fun thing is let's see how long it takes for me to get a reply…

I just want what was paid for to run when we need it without them resorting to: "After we put you off for half a day, we've decided IT'S ON YOUR SIDE!"
I'd also like it fixed before 24 hours have elapsed, but I feel that is asking too much. (we're at 22 hours currently and I said something less than an hour after it began)
