When I try to withdraw to liberty reserve, I get this error message:

"LibertyReserve is currently disabled until new - better - system is ready, please retry next monday."

So my question is this: Is liberty reserve withdrawals going away to be replaced by Dwolla?  What if we want to use LR?

Also, has anyone been able to sign up for Dwolla in the last day or two?  I tried to sign up yesterday and today, but I get "500 - Internal server error" when I complete the application.

UPDATE: I got past my Dwolla signup problem -- the site crashes if you use a "<" character in the password.  Sad  Anyway, avoiding symbols in my password allowed me to register.

I don't think LR withdrawals are going away.  I thought so when I wrote the OP, based on the message and the fact I know Dwolla is coming, but last night MagicalTux said this on IRC #bitcoin-otc:

 < stamit> MagicalTux, what's up with the LR withdrawals?
<+MagicalTux> stamit: LR sucks, I'm rewriting the API to handle cases when the LR api goes wrong better

I know the LR API was throwing errors whenever MagicalTux's LR account went over limits on the API, which is one reason why LR withdrawals often were not working previously.  (The other reason was when MagicalTux's LR account got depleted, but that error message didn't seem to happen as often.)  Based on this IRC message, it seems MagicalTux is rewriting the API to have better error messages.

Also, with many US people switching to Dwolla (myself included) I suspect the LR withdrawals will be less stressed, so should work more often for you.

If you're in Europe, use SEPA. If you want to withdraw large amounts, use international transfer (fee apply). If you're in Japan, we can do stuff too.

Anyway, LR should be back by monday.

Thanks Dynotor for the clarification.

Thank you, but I can't as i don't have a bank account. The only thing i found convenient for me is Western Union or Debit Cards. I'm from Egypt, if you know any other way, please tell me. Thanks.

Hi,

If you want we might be able to do Western Union, I'd have to ask them what kind of fee applies for your case. Anyway if you have specific needs, feel free to contact me at info@mtgox.com

Update for LR withdraw: it works again, but not in realtime.

If we have a lot of LR activity (like, about now), withdraws will be put on hold and executed later (ie. the next day) in the order they were received.

How long can I expect an LR transfer to take, it has been almost four hours since my request...

I know it takes a little due to manual nature of the transfer and I have to say I think Mtgox is a great service!
