Planned Maintainence

When the site is going to be closed down for such things.

Would it be possible to be informed, say 10 minutes before this happens?

Find it rather rude & annoying at suddenly being booted out

I have sleeping issues .. so I pop on during the night when I can't sleep as do others.

Surprisingly there are quite a few members on at that time ..

but like I said .. being booted out with out notice is rubbish.

surely a screen message can be put out shortly before this happens so users can finish chats or refrain form wasting time posting threads etc ..


just a thought ..

I don't suppose there is a good time to shut down for maintenance AO being an international forum

But I'd rather it was 2:30am and not 2:30 pm

Staff on line used to get a PM before the site went down for maintenance, I think that was pretty easy as it was a whole user group with limited numbers, but I would have thought it would take pretty sophisticated software to identify who's on line and send them a PM 10 minutes before a shut down.

I'll probably get shot down in flames by some IT geek now saying it's dead easy to do

Hi Joe, there wasn't any planned maintenance that was scheduled at all. Any changes or downtime the staff and I would for sure let you all know ahead of time

What happened exactly or what error did you get?

It was mildly annoying but, hey, probs not a massive issue - good preventative maintenance.

A&C is at the top of the page & serve(r)s a function

If users chose to ignore it, that's their choice.

Rather than making such a statement .. why not do something useful like go count raindrops ...


Perhaps its best not to reply sometimes ..
