What kind of providers do you guys even have that it take 9+ hours??!! is this where donations go to??
Whose donations? Your's? Because recently is been the Arma 3 players paying for you to play Arma 2.
Its not the end of the world if you can not play Arma for a few hours. The Owners know there is an issue and are looking into fixing it and the best way to avoid this in the future. Obviously. Why would they NOT change things if it was a more viable option? Poking at the owners to get stuff done... when they have said they ARE getting it done will not change things. Only add to the frustration levels.
And they WILL post something letting people know when the situation is fixed. Asking "are the servers up" when you can check in 10 seconds and see if they are up or not is not constructive.
Grab a beer, chill out, play something else for a few hours. Its not the end of the world.
