Why Anook is loading slow right now

Hi guys,

if you are wondering, why Anook is pretty slow right now: There seem to be two YouTube giveaways from our community heroes @foxdrop and @Redmercy at the same time. These result in a gigantic traffic spike, which is slowing us down a bit.

Over 2000 new users have signed up just in the last 20 minutes, which is pretty crazy! But don't worry, the rush hour should be over soon and Anook will recover from this YouTube hug of death... ;)

Welcome new gamers!

See you on Anook,


Introducing Anook's YouTube Integration

Hello everyone,

we have some amazing news to share with you. After weeks of crazy work hours, today we have uploaded the biggest update to Anook yet. It changes and improves a million little things, but more important it introduces our awesome YouTube integration.

We have spent a lot of time working out the best way for content creators to reach their audience and how consumers can find the best gaming content faster. Starting today YouTubers can publish their video channel on Anook and the community can search for videos by game and game related tags. Sharing the videos on Anook is made as fast as possible and - similar to live streams - video views are rewarded with precious game fame. So in a few weeks from now, video content creators should see their fame rank rise to the ranks of streamers or avid contributors on Anook.

We'll post a more in-depth guide about the video integration soon.

At this point a reminder that Anook is still in beta and big changes like the one today can introduce unforeseen problems too. If you find any bugs please let us now in the Development forum.

Keep spreading the word on Facebook, Twitter and your favorite gaming websites! Thank you for all your support!

See you on Anook,


Database Issues

UPDATE: Hardware replaced, we are back !!!

Hey everyone,

we are currently experiencing some problems with one of our servers. This is why the site can be so super slow or throw some random database errors.

We think we have found the reason and probably need to take down the whole site for around 30 minutes to replace some broken hardware.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
