Nope. And see the thread today about adwords not responding to changes since this mornings update, I dont think you CAN change anything today.

I can change the account but ok, but when I check google.com nothing has changed. I have multiple campaigns switched on today and they are not showing. The only campaigns showing are ones which were already running overnight.

Right -- just to clarify, I can log into my account and "make changes" just fine. It's just that the changes aren't really occurring on the Google site. Ads that I deleted 10 hours ago still show. Campaigns I paused 8 hours ago continue to run. And so on.

yep, it's like the serving of ads is not connected to the front-end system. Exactly the sort of thing you would expect would happen when programmers are updating the system, unfortunately they forgot to switch the thing back on at 1am when they went off to bed. And I hate to say it, but unless a google employee checks their own campaigns and tries to change something over the weekend, this could run until Monday morning. Which here in the UK will be monday evening before I can change anything.

I can't imagine that they don't actually work on Saturdays -- they just don't bother to interact with the public on these days. Then again, how could this be going on for 11 hours now and no one have done something about it? Either it's a serious problem that's very difficult to fix, or everyone's asleep at the switch.

My ads are still not running. I made the changes this evening. Can't believe it I wonder what happens to those who have paused their ads but they are still running

I've been having the same problem with my ads not being run since friday after their "scheduled maintenance".

I enabled a previously paused campaign, and its not being served at all.

I stated a new campain, and its not being served as well.

Any clue on whats going on?
