Temporary glitch for adding sites to Webmaster tools

As some of you may have experienced, our “Add a site” page has been unavailable in some locales for the past several days. This is not a site-wide or even a global issue.  Unfortunately, this happened due to an update that uncovered a bug in the original code, which caused us to disable the page in one of our data centers. The good news is that we are testing a fix now and will be releasing it to production just as soon as we are sure it will not cause further complications. I will update this post when I receive word that the fix is in production.

On behalf of all of us here in the Bing Webmaster Center team, we would like to extend our apologies and thank you for your continued patience.

    Thank you – yes, I went onto 3 different browsers thinking it was an ie or ff thing.  I'm glad to know you posted this…that's why I just joined the community to see what was up and the communication is great….while it sucks to know it's down, it's nice to know you've communicated with us that you're aware and in the process of fixing. I'm just keeping a list of sites I'll have to add once it's fixed.  Thank you again.

    Thank you for good news, Brett. I hope it will be fixed soon.

    And I like the idea of 'official' forum stickies for similar cases.

    I have a quick question about Bing Webmaster tools, and wondering if anyone can help me out.

    Google Webmaster Tools has a seperate section to add a 'News Sitemap' for your site if you have a news section on your site and want to be included in google news.  My site has a news section as well that is very very active and I'm wondering if it makes sense to upload the sitemap xml file for the site structure OR the news site?  Any information on this topic would be greatly appreciated!

    Is the glitch adding sites to the index the cause of delays to sites being indexed correctly by Bing search engine?

    I am getting the same issue with site submission. The same issue happened couple of weeks back and I reported it. Bing tech support contact me and were able to recreate it. Seems like it is back again.
