Its still grey in California. I'm using an extension to Firefox to see toolbar, same thing, all pages grey.
page rank is not coming for the data centre. It's of no point using any toolbar. This would not show you accurate results or i would say that these will show you funny results.
I hope Brett is right. I was just starting to make a list of sites with great PR that I should contact soon. I wish I started that list earlier.
are they stopping the pagerank? i hope not!
Noticed the same thing (from Nigeria). As first I thought it was my ISP's nameservers.
the plugin on my firefox is still showing pr fine :)
grey in Greece. maybe a PR update or somthing bigger
they have disable and dmoz dir in toolbar
Mine isn't showing PR. It's showing: PR N/A

What criteria do you use when choosing which text links to buy, since you've stated that you don't rely on PR?
Is anybody sure of this thing that this is permanently turned off? Or we are still sharing our thoughts...
I'm nervous, just got my good serps back. Maybe I'll get my old PR back too, went down the same time I lost my serps, if they are updating it. Crossing fingers.
What a well deserved slap in the face that would be to all the fools running around buying PageRank. We can only hope.

ahh i see now, it seems to be running of a cache, i was looking my sites which ofcourse i visit, i went to a new site that i know has a high or and is in dmoz and indeed it didn't show either.
PR indicator is still on in Google Directory. I wonder for how long will it stay there.

Yep, but the Google directory icon is disabled and I am seeing changes in the ranking.
According to the directory rank, I have dropped very low. According to a couple of page rank tool, I have a 70 out of 10 - equal to Google's own rank!
If they are testing a new algorithm, I would think that a company as large as Google would have enough disk space to do their testing off of the live site and only change the live Google versions when they have thoroughly modified and tested.
think GoogleGuy is on vacation
It is the Memorial Day holiday weekend in the US, so perhaps Google has chosen this time period to perform some maintenance or upgrades? I think this will not be resolved until next week.

No doubt they do - however they have got a hell an amount of data to transfer to the live DCs. - They probably do this in stages - an amount of data goes live - some testing, few other factors added - more testing etc etc etc.
still grey here
Time to uninstall our toolbars... If they do away with visual pr, then we should do away with them spying on us... If this is permenent thing I will not only uninstall my toolbar, but on all my sites I will have an article as to why the toolbar is spyware and should not be installed. I know toolbar pr didn't mean much but it was a rough measure. No one can argue with that.
Google has been missing with us too much.. They are making money off our backs and then keep slapping us in the face.. I did well in the last update.. so this is not sour grapes talking. It's my overall tainted view of this "DO ALL EVIL" company.
Larry and Sergey have made the transition to the dark side and now are sith lords..LOL..
I couldn't care a less about pr.. if google didn't penalize me for linking to banned sites that I could easily see using the toolbar then I wouldn't care about the visual aspect about it.
One good thing is that schemes like the infamous link co-op will be brought to its knees.. I am actually hoping visual pr goes away for good.
On the lighter side, anyone want to buy links on one of my 4 pr10 sites? I have screen shots of them just before toolbar pr went out.. LOL..
Just thinking about the concequences if the toolbar satys like that .........
It will be soooo difficult to do the link exchanges and we will be always on a guessing about the quality of the site . It will be very tough in the begining if at all this is permanent
But looking at it in a broader angle this will eliminate the fraud practices going on and quality content will gain value .... which means over all betterment of the internet as a whole .
I think they're in the middle of maintenance.
Of course, it'd be nice if Google actually shared information about what's going on, but that's one thing Google has been been ... transparent.
If this is the end of page rank or visible page rank numbers I say good. This will force all of us to focus on real content to help users.
Toolbar users provide G with a lot of valuable data. I doubt they will be removing TBPR because that would result in too many people uninstalling the TB.
Still all grey from Sweden.
Maybe it's a wider issue than Google.
Anyone else have a really slow day on the net today?
BBC News was down just now.
And my mail server's down.
In decreasing order of importance (to me anyway).
All grey here too. Actually, I can do without the stress of always watching the PR bar for a few days. In the U.S. it's a holiday weekend and I am going to enjoy the next 3 days. Peace to all.
Still grey here...hope it stays that way.
Just imagine if it stayed grey. An entire cottage industry built around selling PR would die overnight. There are quite a few people sweating bullets right now. ;)
Me thinks there are server issues on Google's side and that PageRank will probably reappear shortly.
