Notice how this never happens on any other game. It doesn't happen on SWtOR, but it happens on such a lowly-complicated game? It seems this happens every month and it takes hours to be fixed. Mojang really needs to get their act together and hire 100 workers or something. At least get some staff that lives around the world so it can be fixed any time.
so how long do you think it is going to be until it is fixed? i dont know what gigantic redstone inventions i need to make before they get invented.
Since it's day time, it could get fixed in the next hour or so. But considering how long it takes Mojang to fix these things, it'll probably take about an hour or two. Nevermind, it was just fixed. Edit: Or not, it just changed to "failed to verify username"
The only thing we users need to know is that right now we can't play Minecraft online. I personally can't care less about the details behind this down, that's the devs' job, and it's also their job to keep the servers functional and to prevent silly situations like this. And if you screw up the system for 1 hour and a half just by hitting the "Quit" button, maybe it's time to rethink it a bit.
And also, if you hope not to have angried people in a situation like this...well, that's not how the world works, sadly.
Yeah, we do not need to know anything else. But we do need to know the reason behind if we are to criticize in any way.
Also, if you hope not to having any problems with online based games (or any product at all)... well, that's not how the world works, sadly.
And it won't start working until they fix the server.

If the status for the Minecraft multiplayer sessions sever changes to All is Good, then it should work.
Lol Today I finished making my first server, and whenever I tried to log on, my Minecraft would crash. It was really annoying because at first I thought it was a problem with my server. I WORKED ON DAT FOR 2 HOURS!!!! Then I rage quit and tried to join a Hunger Games server for fun, then I realized THAT wasn't working. Then I found this thread, checked Mojang, and all is good now...OH WAIT, NO IT ISN'T! IF EVERYTHING WAS GOOD< SERVERS WOULD BE WORKING!!! WHYYYY MOJANG! WHYYYYYYYY!!!!!!
