    iTunes app reviews/rankings are missing (when viewing iTunes on my PC at least, not on the device). Anyone know what is up?

    Didn't feel like starting a new thread, so...

    My game has been at the exact same ranking for 3 days straight now with no fluctuation. usually the rank changes a dozen times a day, but the line graph in MajicRank has been perfectly straight for days. Anyone else seeing this? US store only by the way.

    The App Store is frozen in time... This has happened before in the past and usually will right itself.

    5th day now. This is really affecting my visibility in the app store (and my money). Daredevil Dave has been stuck at #35 in Racing for almost 5 days now. I guess it could be worse...at least I'm not at #300!

    But I WAS at higher ranks recently. I like to try and stay in the top 25 so visibility is slightly better on the device version of iTunes. This is BS.

    Try having apple feature your newly released game as "game of the week".... An amazing gift..... And then freeze the charts hours later before your app actually gets a chance to even SHOW on any charts!

    *sniff* I share your pain :(

    We were having a sale this weekend and judging by the sales figures we should be back in the top 100 but we are stuck at around 180... And the benefit of a sale to drive more purchases is lost.

    The only thing I can say is other people are in the same situation.

    Yah it REALLY sucks for Halfbrick and Age Of Zombies. I was very lucky that I was in the middle/end of two big promotional campaigns for both my games, so they're stuck quite high in the chart.

    I saw also somewhere that the iTunes music chart is stuck?

    Publishers must be LIVID.

    EDIT: Thread full of Aussies BTW :)
