I like the new + sign feature, very helpful compared to getting five seconds to read a mouse over box, but not so sure about the site downtime blog announcement method...

Perhaps notification of down time is too important to live in a blog which may or may not
get read. A banner that is instantly read when reaching the forum seems to be a more
effective method of imparting important information.

If you want us to read your blog then you may need to entice us with something other
than a search for whether or not there is going to be down time

Just a thought

Just a quick comment/suggestion regarding this feature

I'm subscribed to the blog & I got the email regarding todays planned shutdown. But would it be a good idea for subscribed blog updates to appear in the drop-down Notification Tab as PM/friendship requests etc. do ?

( I actually saw the announcement about the shutdown in your thread on the subject & I only saw my email a few hours after as I hadn't checked my email earlier )
