At present moment the site is fully operational and we are getting much better response time. I will not take more of your time here.... for more details visit our forums.

We are working on updates of the software, some minor fixes and preparation for the launch of the new server to make TDP faster. We are experiencing some short delays and timeouts during the day. Our support people are trying to find and fix the problem, but with the amount of information we have it is hard to tell when it will be fixed.

11/21 - I know we kept you in a dark for a while now... We started working on a complete support of our Dollmaker on Netscape 6.1 and Safari (Mac) in addition to Internet Explorer support that we have now. Mac users will be able to use our dollmaker, however site will not be optimized for mentioned browsers. We also work with Dolliecrave on a completely new solution that will allow different sites to use "Build & Save Process" (c) TDP.
11/14 - We are currently testing our new babies maker with our premium users and it will be completely released in production this weekend.

10/10 - We did another small upgrade on the site to speed up the response during the peak time.
10/09 - We are trying to start using new Helpdesk Software. All of the site related email questions / problems will be going through that system. We will put all the links up as soon as we complete testing.

10/08 - Today at 6:30PM EST The Doll Palace will be down for maintenance (we anticipate 10 min downtime).
10/05 - We've added 2 Halloween dollmaker categories in our Thematic Dollmaker (all the promised pumpkins are there :) )

09/24 - As promised we added The Doll Palace - AIM icons (TDP - AIM) to our icons selection. TDP - AIM icons are created from the dolls we have in our collection. MSN icons are coming in couple of days.
09/21 - We did notice that site started to respond a bit slower than before. This is caused by the overload of the server during the weekend peak time. We will try to resolve this problem in 1-2 weeks.
09/18 - We updated the codes in Get Dollmaker for your page section. We noticed that a lot of people were having problems with adjusting the size of the dollmaker subwindow (iframe) on their pages. Current codes will make sure the dollmaker space is displayed correctly. Please update your pages if you are using our dollmaker codes.
09/17 - We finally were able to open the icons section. Currently you can download the icons that were donated to The Doll Palace during last 4 days. We also have plans on adding icons created from The Doll Palace dolls collection.

09/11 - Yesterday we had a problem with one of our servers, but we tried to do everything to make sure it did not affect the site. Some of our regular users with limited AOL accounts (not AOL master accounts) probably experienced the problem with images, however rest of the users were unaffected by this failure. The computer has been fixed and is back online so everyone should have complete access to the site.
09/04 - We added "Private rooms" and "Whisper" to Avatarchat.

08/28 - Most of our doll sections now have 'Pick Doll' feature that allows you to easily pick the doll as PNG file and 'Save', 'Copy' or 'Print' it. You can also use doll on Card, in Dollmaker or send it in email.
08/28 - We did one of the major upgrades today, but you probably will not notice a difference since the site was working fast before the upgrade. The main goal of this change was to improve the reliability of The Doll Palace image servers.
08/28 - This morning we did have a problem with avatar chat that reflected the front page view. It has been fixed in the afternoon.
08/26 - We added whispering to our avatarchat. To try it just click the avatar that you want to whisper too.
08/24 - We had a major problem this Saturday. The problem was caused by the failed nameservice provider. Even though all of our servers were up nobody was able to reach the site because name could not be resolved to the proper address. We changed nameservice provider, however this type of change (propagation) takes up to 24 hours. We will be implementing couple of changes in our infrastructure to protect the site against this type of failures in the future.
I hope everyone will be able to visit the site soon.
08/20 - Do not open any emails coming from email@example.com (email contains a virus). We do not use this email address. We are trying to investigate the issue and contact provider resposible for sending out the mentioned emails.
08/19 - We have many cases when people are sending viruses hiding behind @thedollpalace.com email address. The global email service is created in a way where email can be easily changed and people are able to send mail using @thedollpalace.com address even though they have absolutely nothing to do with The Doll Palace. We do not send any emails out unless you requested us to do so. We would not send any attachments except GIF, JPG or PNG files.
08/15 - As you know New York lost power for almost 24 hours during the Blackout 2003. Most of our servers were operating; however we lost power and carriers in our main office. We were not able to use our monitoring systems based in NY and did not respond in time for a problem generated on one of the image servers late Thursday night. We currently have everything under control and operational.
We are sorry for inconvenience caused by these events.
08/12 - A lot of you already saw our new Avatar chat, but I just would like to announce that we finished beta testing of the chat and first version is available to every Doll Palace memebers.

08/07 - "Safe" dollmaker items selection is now available on the Dollmaker Category Selection screen . We will be working more on items filtration in next 2 weeks.
08/07 - We did have a router problem at 9:02AM this morning, everything should be back up and operational.
08/06 - Fixed Dollmaker IFRAME problem.
Dollmaker was patched to allow people to use it on their pages in Iframe without problems. The final window will not be maximized and iframe position on other sites should not change.
08/05 - We made another performance improvement, site should be responding faster even during peak evening hours. We will be making another upgrade in 2 weeks, expect everything be even faster :)

07/19 - As promised we fixed couple of transparency problems with animation effects in animator. We also added "Save" filemanager button to simplify image download.
07/16 - Overlay effect has been published in our animator. Now you can use "Stretch" + "Squeeze" Horizontal Effect for wings and "Overlay" any doll on top of the prepared moving wings.
We spotted couple of problems with "Preserve transparency" option in animator and will be working on eliminating dropped colors.
07/14 - We added 4 more special effects into the animator, these effects were aimed to improve the creation of the animated wings. New overlay effect that will allow placement of any image on top of the ready animation will be ready in 1-3 days.
07/11 - Added filtration to our dollmaker chat.
07/08 - We fixed small issue with animator that we had for couple of days. We are really behind on validation of sites in TopDolls, we will try to finish all the sites in next couple of days, however it could take longer for new sites.
07/07 - Finally our migration has been completed, there should be some improvements in reply speed especially during the "peak" evening hours, but more is coming. With our current structure we will be able to scale up without any other major problems.

Early next week registration section will be closed for 2-3 days until everything is finalized. During this migration no new TDP accounts will be created, however if you already have an account you should be able to use it without any problems.
06/19 - Why is the site so slow???

06/18 - We finally added unique maker tab to our premium dollmaker. Standard categories of the unique maker will be available to our standard members in 7-10 days. This new tab brings additional ~3000 items in 52 categories. We are working on creation of the thumbnails for all the categories.
06/17 - Because of the limit on public bandwidth we had to remove the doll codes. Every doll now has Doll ID that will help you to reference the image in coversation with your friends or TDP support.
06/16 - Some news about upcoming unique maker: at least 30 categories will be added, we will try to complete everything before the end of this week.
06/16 - Our provider had a DOS attack between 4PM and 5PM EST. During this period our lines to the main servers were overloaded and a lot of people were not able to reach the site. Our provider is doing its best, however there is no way to protect against these kinds of attacks.

06/02 - We finished and published the DollQuote section!!! It was a very interesting project that we worked on during last couple of days. DollQuote generates dynamic quotes and allows you to take them to your active desktop.
05/28 - We were getting a lot of complains from AOL users that images on the dollmaker were not showing up. We finally were able to resolve the problem with AOL Parental Control subsystem. Now AOL users with enabled parental control (filtering) should be able to access dollmaker items without any problems.
05/28 - All networks and servers are up.
05/28 - One of the networks we use went down, our provider is working on a solution. We transfered the load to the backup server, but some of the dollmaker items on Server0 will not appear.
05/26 - We were away for couple of days and didn't have a chance to answer all the emails. We still have last Thursday emails in our Inbox and new emails are keep coming ... :)

05/20 - We added more fairies (Fantasy2 - Premium) items and started working on unique dollmaker. It will take us a while [couple of weekls] before new dollmaker will be finished and ready for release. We also work on thumbnails for existing categories.

We currently are sorting the 4000+ props collection uploaded by our users and created by TDP.

We started preparation for Wedding Categories dollmaker launch. We created category Body->Hands and moved all separated hands from accessories into that category, we also updated dollmaker flowers category.
05/07 - We work together with dollerexpress on getting Doll News section up @ The Doll Palace. We already found a place for TOP Doll news section on our front page, but everything else is still in development stage.

05/02 - We finally got our promised server up. Dollmaker should be loading really fast!!!!! I didn't believe my eyes the speed we've got with this new machine. This is a test run and probably we will be taking server off for some time this Monday to study the load and performance.

04/26 - Our line has been fixed and everything is back to normal.
04/25 - We lost one of the dollmaker servers, we are trying to get in touch with operation control to bring the line back up. At this point we have no information when the server will come back up, but it should be resolved in couple of hours.
04/25 - Our provider just informed us that new service will be on hold until Monday. Sorry everyone, we tried to do everything to start it before the weekend.
04/24 - Slowly but surely :)
We are in the final phase of the installation of the new dollmaker server. We probably will be able to start much better and faster dollmaker service before this weekend.
A lot of people emailed us about timeouts and red crosses on the dollmaker, I hope this new addition will be able to solve most of the described problems.
04/19 - Army Dollmaker category has been added. We will be adding more items for this category in the feature.

04/10 - We added ability to add colored border to the dolls you make on Doll Palace Dollmaker.
04/07 - We had to change the requirements on sending the doll as an attachment because of the different complains we were receiving in the last couple of weeks. From now on we will ask you to sign-in if you would like to send the doll as an attachment.

04/01 - This is the first time in our history we've got over million visitors a month. :)

02/21 - I could not stop from this comment sorry...
Some people think that premium features are not cool enough to pay for it. You don't have to pay for it, but you have to deal with stuff you have for free. We are trying to make this site better and faster (and faster is our primary concern for now). We have to pay for it; this is why we started charging people money. Of course we can provide you with thousands of pop-up's all the time, but I thought people would appreciate us for not doing this. The DollPalace.com is proud to be pop-up free site from its very beginning in 1999 till now.
02/21 - We finally put up new gallery items. Who is going to win this time?

Site was really nice. With every site you have, make sure you have a backup (local) copy. It is in their interest delete the content of the site and rely on you not having a backup. Ads are not bringing anything into their pocket now, but they have to pay for traffic. Cooldolls was legally placed on the angelfire and they had no reason to delete the site except for saving their bandwidth.
02/04 - Finally finished Personal Templates section for Premium Users. Are you still thinking about Premium Membership? :-)
01/25 - Working on templates for the dollmaker. We will carry public templates and our premium users will be able to have as many as they want private templates.

We are thinking of ways to take care of this problem at the moment but for now all the new dolls that are added will come without codes.
