The theory was that when Model Mayhem went down, you would be able to get notices on one of the following sites. Most people have probably noticed that does not work so well as updates about site outages are rarely if ever announced leaving members to wonder on their own. Here’s a perfect example. The site has been down for 45 minutes and this is the current tweet on their Twitter account. A check on Facebook shows only members asking what is going on.
Now there is a way to get instant alerts of Model Mayhem going down. Just follow this Twitter account and you will get an update within 2 minutes of the site going down. The alerts are only sent after the site fails to respond after three tries. Additional alerts are sent when the site goes back up. Additionally, you can check back on this page to get a status report about uptime statistics as well as response times.
